Liked: An excellent place to stay in Santiago! La Chimba is situated in the nicest part of Santiago, close to nice restaurants, cafes, the metro and the city center. The staff is very helpful and there are several places to hang out at the hostel, for example in the sun in the backyard

Disliked: Nothing really

Liked: Really nice property and rooms are nice and clean. The 2 shared bathrooms upstairs were excellent although the showers go hot and cold randomly!!

Disliked: Noise!! Far far too noisy if you are looking for a good nights sleep. We arrived after a 26 hour bus journey and needed a good sleep, we couldnt get one here. Loud music was being played until 2am, but when that was turned off people started coming back from the pubs & clubs and stayed up partying, etc until 4.30am. So in short, if you´re looking to meet people and party this would be a good choice - but if you need sleep avoid this place like the plague!

Liked: In the heart of the artsy district of Bellavista where lots of restaurants and bars are. Short walk away from the house of Pablo Neruda, Cerro Cristobal and subway. Suitable for young traveller independent or couples who don't mind some partying (and the respective noise).

Disliked: The streets in that area can be a little dodgy though. Urin smell every a few meters. But this seems to be characteristic for Santiago in many neighborhoods.
