This hostel is central located in Bellavista. It is a kind of bohemian area offering lot of art, music, restaurants, bars,... On the other side of the street is the entrance to the famous Patio Bellavista. The personal is very very very nice:) All of tham are speaking excellent English as well.
Great hostel will be better when finished; my room was under construction when I stayed which interefered with things a bit. Great breakfast and kitchen, awesome sundeck and chilling areas. The airport transfer they arranged for me to the airport didnt show up so I had to get a more expensive taxi but not their fault. Good wifi, decent beds, good size lockers. Helpful friendly staff. Some bathrooms were out of order. Good location near bars and restaurants. Recommended :)
The hostel is very well located, but they have serius security problems, on our first night there was a party on the terrace, next to our room going on till 5 am, we couldn´t sleep at all, and there were people going in and out the hostel near the bedrooms area. The next day our room door lock was broken and anyone could enter the room, they took 3 days to fix it, the result: my friend´s camera was stolen from the locker, it was a really expensive camera.

Location was excellent, near metro, popular bars & restaurants, along with San Cristobal hill. Brekkie was nice too. However.....No electricityty in my room on arrival, no water for an entire day because of pipe issues and staff at times were very unhelpful. Most worrying was the security, which was very poor. So no surprise when two girls staying there were robbed during my stay.
Great location - this can't be said enough. In this hostel, you are in the heart of the coolest district in Santiago: best empanadas in Empanatodos, cool bars on Pio Nono, nice restaurants, best churros (Pepe churros), nice markets, etc. Our double room was huge (although in a different building from the main hostel) and clean. The kitchen is a bit crowded in the morning during breakfast, but well stocked if you want to cook. Some room (e.g. living room) is under construction so not available.
Bellavista Hostel was perfect for my stay in Santiago. Perfect location and nice quiet and clean hostel. If you are looking to meet people and party, you should stay in La Chimba- their sister hostel. But this is by far the best hostel in Santiago. Melissa is very friendly and we are about to stay there for the third time!
Good location, friendly staff, lockers in dormitory, hot showers and charging points in the rooms.
AWESOME. Yeah, good times. They have a nice cat. Awesome staff especially the girl with glasses and the guy with glasses at night (NO idea what their names are) anyways its in an awesome neighborhood. Good vibe, good time. loves it
Very friendly and helpful staff. Prices online lower than if you turn up!
The hostel has a very nice crew and is located in a very good area (lots of clubs, pubs, cheap place to eat.
Big balcony on the roof to chill. Big kitchen to make your own food. Clean bathroom. The 12 beds dorm is big, place for everyone! The hostel is at less than 10 minutes walking metro and restaurants.
Nice hostel in the best place of Santiago. Prepare to pay in USD or by creditcard as otherwise you'll have to pay the additional taxes...that was a little strange
Nice average size hostel. Owner will occasionaly host small parties like wine and cheese night so you can meet other travellers. Three computers and a nice TV that doesnt get used much (got to watch the Super Bowl there). Close to the bellavista restraunts and clubs and about 10 min walk to the nearest metro. Staff was friendly.
This hostel has a great location, close to the metro and food. There is a big breakfest included and the showers are excellent. There's an awesome rooftop terrace to chill on and you can meet their great cat Frida who is super sweet. We only had one big complaint. When we tried to pay they wanted us to pay in American money and said if we paid in pesos we'd get charged an extra tax. So their prices listed on hostelworld.com are different then in real life. Be careful.
I have no complaints about this hostel, it is very nice! It is clean and spacious, with big bathrooms. The staff are also friendly and helpful.
its a very nice place, the staff very friendly and helpful
loved it here. the location was the best. our double room was spacious and the whole place felt safe and clean. The staff was nice and they organized events almost daily that were free. Will be coming back for sure.
