Liked: Good location

Disliked: Lots of ants in the room. Reception staff were not friendly and did as little as possible whilst trying to get it on with the solo female travellers. The night staff couldn´t speak any english and barely could take their eyes off facebook to answer your questions,.

Liked: Great location, right in the bars and pubs zone (but in a quiet street) friendly and helpfull staff (flexible to accomodate your needs), great place to meet people, comfortable beds, clean linen and very warm blankets. Good facilities, good showers, clean bathrooms, nice kitchen, free food offered as a courtesy (some fruits), extremely nice atmosphere, well decorated common areas. Would definitely recommend La Chimba to people looking forward to making new friends and enjoy the night and cultural life of Santiago! The only tip I give is: if you book your stay through backpackers a short time before your check-in date, call the Hostel to make shure they checked their email for new reservations... Hostelbookers emails your reservation request to the hostel right away, but the La Chimba's staff doesn't check their email that often...

Disliked: absolutely nothing!

02 July 2010 Customer would recommend this property

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.
