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!

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!!
