Liked: Location and the backyard.

Disliked: Little utilities in the kitchen and in the weekend it is very noisy from all the bars in the area. So either go out in the weekend or use earplugs.

Liked: in the perfect neighborhood from which to enjoy santiago center. i feel like staying closer to the city center and the plaza de armas would give you a a more mundane urban setting. the streets around la chimba are great places to chill out, have drinks, and be around a good crowd of young chilenos.

Disliked: there wasn't always toilet paper in the bathrooms. the hot water in the showers was tricky for me to figure out, so i'd head to the back house of the hostel where the showers had much better water pressure and the hot water would work fine. they bathrooms are rather small so there isn't much space to move around.

Liked: This quirky hostel is located in an excellent part of Santiago, right next to the main strip in Bella Vista. The rooms are of different shapes and sizes, with a main focus on shared dormitories. It's not a party hostel, but definitely has a younger focus on it's patrons. The staff were excellent and very helpful with getting around Santiago.

Liked: Pretty close to all the action in bella vista. but sufficiently far away to not be too noisy. Someones always on watch meaning you can go out all night . Cool theme and everything is pretty clean. More information about places to go, things to do and see should be made available for guests. Staff were all fluent in english and helpful.
