Liked: The only redeeming quality is this hostel's location.

Disliked: The hostel appears to be run by kids who are completely blasé about the whole thing. First, our bed had bugs, it was absolutely disgusting. My partner and I stayed five nights in a private double and ended up with bites all over our bodies. The hostel was incredibly loud at night, all night long. There was never any hot water for showers. Breakfasts were weak. Finally, while the dorms had nice duvet blankets, the double had worn, ratty, dirty sheets; and, when asked for more blankets because it was absolutely freezing, the staff refused because they were afraid we'd steal them... Has the potential to be a nice hostel, but there are definitely better options in Santiago.

Liked: It has a really good atmosphere and it organises activities like a pubcrawl and movie nights are a great way to meet new people. It also has some great social areas.

Disliked: The showers are a little dodgy, it is very difficult to get a good consistent temperature. They seem to switch between freezing cold and scolding hot.

Liked: The people working at La Chimba are so friendly and awesome. There's a great sense of community there. It's great for independent travelers because they can give you great suggestions for the nightlife in surrounding Bellavista and will probably even invite you to come and party with them! Really sweet people. Also, even though it's in a big party neighborhood the rooms are tucked away from the main road and so are not too noisy.
