Liked: Good points: nice common area, a good place to chill out. Lots of DVDs. Comfy beds. Good kitchen and nice breakfast which is left out for most of the morning, not whipped away at 10 on the dot. Free pasta and wine on Italian night. Good location for bars and restaurants.Bad points: dodgy showers - scalding hot for a few seconds then back to icy-cold. No heating in the hostel so freezing all the time, especially in the bedroom. Quite thin walls so can be noisy at night. Staff not especially friendly, although helpful enough. Overall not a bad place but somehow lacking in atmosphere; people tended to keep to themselves and not make friends. Has the potential to be a much better hostel than it is.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: We really enjoyed our stay at La Chimba. Its in a great area (lots of bars and restaurants) and the staff are really helpful (we'd like to thank one staff in particular who helped us when a taxi driver tried to scam us!!). It was clean, had a great kitchen and a great place to meet other travellers. The weekly bbq is also great value for money. Highly recommended!!
