Hostelworld says:

Andes Hostel was rated #1 in Chile and #2 in Latin America at the 2011 Hoscars and it's not hard to see why. Located near the metro and the National Museum of Fine Arts in central Santiago, this hostel features a bar, rooftop terraces and a variety of apartments, private rooms, mixed dorms and female dorms. Hostelworld guests have said they'd stay here again, citing the comfortable beds and hotel-style standards. We like their friendly and accommodating staff; one traveller told us they'd 'never seen that kind of care for guests before'.

Property Information:

Our guests give us their preference for our immaculate facilities and unbeatable location in the heart of Bellas Artes Lastarria Neighbourhood, one of the trendiest, most cosmopolitan and most interesting places in Santiago, near all of the main attractions Santiago has to offer

Why should you stay with Andes? The answer is so simple - 'cause we offer you the best quality stay for the best money value!

Hundreds of backpackers can't be wrong - we were rated the Best in Chile in 2010 and 2011 and the best in Latin America at the 2010 Hoscars!

How did we do that? The experience of our international staff helps us know what is most important to making your stay with us the best ever!

That's why we offer you all that you'd like to ask for - spacious and light four- and six-bed dorms, comfy beds, good mattresses and free clean linen and towels. Need more privacy? We have also private rooms, all with cable TV!

Our delicious, fresh breakfast is served in our spacious dining room, so you won't have to worry any more about finding a place to sit or cook.

Our hostel has the best location in Santiago. We're located in one of the most beautiful and well-known areas of downtown Santiago, the trendy and stylish Bellas Artes neighbourhood. This super-central spot is just two steps from almost all attractions in the city. It's within walking distance of the Bellavista entertainment district and nightlife center, close to the all most important museums and just in front of the Bellas Artes metro station.

Our friendly and knowledgeable staff are ready to help 24hrs a day. They will share with you the best tips on when and where to go in order to fully explore Santiago, day or night. We speak English, Spanish and Portuguese.

Our facilities include a pool table, fully equipped bar, Wi-Fi, computers, a terrace with fancy sunbathing furniture and a BBQ set, a big LCD flat-screen TV and much more! It's everything you need to get your dose of fun and relaxation.

All during the week we have a great offering of free hostel events. Wednesdays are for free pasta and wine-tasting; Fridays are for karaoke and hot dogs; Saturdays feature our legendary BBQ for only $10USD; and Sundays are for relaxing with the water pipe.

If you're looking for something more private than a hostel, we also offer a number of apartments. Just tick the 'apartments' box in your search here on Hostelworld.com and you'll find our apartment listing.

  • Andes Hostel says

    We've got some great extras for our guests, particularly the different activities we organise during the week. Monday we have a Chilean dinner. Tuesday there's a walking tour of the city, which includes a small Spanish lesson for free. Wednesdays we have a free dinner of pasta and wine. Fridays we have a free karaoke and hot dogs night, and Saturdays we put on a rooftop barbecue.
    We're located in Santiago's historical centre, just a few blocks from the Central Market. Our neighbourhood, Bellas Artes/Lastarria, is well known for its restaurants, shops and bars. Also we are at a walking distance from the Bellavista neighborhood, where much of the best nightlife is concentrated, with bars, restaurants and nightclubs.
    Personally I recommend visiting Santiago's downtown and its historical area, Santa Lucía Hill and to catch the funicular to the top of San Cristobal Hill at the Metropolitan Park.
    Our hostel is for everyone. It is mainly visited by young people, but the age range is wide, because we also offered fully equipped and furnished apartments, located just a block away from our hostel. Is because of that that we also receive many families and couples that are looking for some privacy and calm, with the alternative of participating in our weekly activities just a block away.

    The staff was amazing and the hostel couldn't be better located in Santiago. It was really nice partying with Barbara, Fabiola, Guillermo, Juan Pablo and Liza! Barbecue on the rooftop for the win!

    We stayed in the apartments across the street, with 3 guests. The third bed for our friend was just couch. The apartments showed lots of wear, linens were dirty, and towels smelled bad. It seemed linens and towels had been washed, but they were worn out, grey and smelled bad. One of the members of the front desk was helpful, however, one night we asked another front desk person for a restaurant recommendation and he did not know of one. Seemed strange he could not be more helpful.
