Within walking distance of most things and close to the metro for anything else, staff were very nice and welcoming, facilities were pretty, though the wifi was a bit slow and the bathrooms were a little sketchy. I would definitely not suggest this to anyone who sleeps lightly, but if you want to meet cool people this is the place. I've never been anywhere so friendly and at first I was a little intimidated because I'm pretty shy but I ended up having a great time!
The location is very good. Unfortunately it is also situated right next too bars and clubs. It is very loud at night! The kitchen is very old. The hygiene (Toilet/ Bathroom) was not satisfying. The beds are fine. The house itself is nice.
Excellent hostel, buena onda! Still needs a secure place to store bags before/after check-in/out.
pretty fun hostel, room was sooo hot though! great location
Great hostel with super nice staff and owner.in a 3 night stay only the hostel arranged a cool party and a very good barbecu.the breakfast is good and the showers are with hot water and clean all the time.the location is very good (bellavista) for people who want to go clubing or for bars anf such.
Decent hostel in a very fun area. Sociable atmosphere, easy to meet people. Our en suite was pretty grimy but the several shared bathrooms were very clean and the showers were good. One night they organised a BBQ with a lot of food and wine and free club entry after for only 4500 pesos. I probably would say it's a party hostel but the hostel itself isn't that loud and I didn't have any problems getting to sleep.
I had such a fun time here! There was just really great people, the staff always helped me when I needed it, and every night there was some fun things organized for example a party or a barbeque. If you just want to rest, its probably not the best place for you, but if you want to enjoy yourself and meet great people, this is the place
Nice and friendly staff speaking many languages. Hostel lets people stay in their own tents at the yard - which is pretty cool and made me consider the idea for my next trips. Unfortunately it doesn't have a locker or a room for guests who check-out and still want to leave their bags/backpacks at the hostel. Breakfast is good, bathrooms were clean. Wi-Fi could be improved.
I really like the atmosphere in this hostel. The bbq is great, breakfast is lovely, the location is perfect and the staff are knowledgeable and friendly. I have two negatives however. As it is a party hostel, don't plan on getting any sleep (and there's always one night where you just need it). And also, even though it was advertised, there was no pool!!! Really disappointing as it was one of my main reasons for booking.
Kombi is unshamedly a party hostel, to their credit they made this very clear to me when I arrived, if this is not your thing look elsewhere I was up to 7am most nights and thoroughly enjoyed doing so! Pros: very social, party atmosphere, nice staff, great couch and TV area, great location and goo security. Made tonnes of mates at this hostel. Cons: 10 bed dorm was revoltingly hot in summer and is terribly ventilated. Noise goes on until the sun comes up. Facilities are basic.
Very cool hostel , the hostel is very close to club so if you wanna sleep good and you need earplugs because is to loud and a lot of nois ...
Everything was great but I am so disappointed with an event that happened during new year's eve. We were offered a dinner (with main course, wine and dessert) for 4mil pesos but it was all TERRIBLE. Not only we ended up wasting our money on one lousy chicken drum, awful mashed veggies but they also forgot to serve the wine and burnt the apple pie. That made our new year's eve experience so bad it ruined the whole night for us.
I spent three nights partying each night in Kombi. It's a party hostel, stay here if you want to meet people and stay up all night. It's in a great location, closeby to all the bars and a lot of restaurants. the staff were really helpful and happy people, I miss Kombi, the vibe and the atmosphere there is always awesome!
Great location with so many bars and restaurants close by. Really easy to meet other travelers in the common areas and the hostel has a fun vibe. However, we stayed there 8 nights and there were all night parties on 6 of those nights. Maybe don't stay there on nights you want to sleep but otherwise it's great. Staff are really helpful. The owner really cares about people's experience there.
I loved Kombi Hostel! I was in Santiago twice and I decided to come back to this hostel after my first time. The staff were super nice, the facilities are great and spacey, and bathrooms are clean. My two issues were that there was rarely soap in the bathrooms and only one of my showers had actually hot water- the others were lukewarm. The breakfast good and the location is good too- near the Bellavista neighborhood. Definitely a party hostel, especially weekends and Wednesdays.
Really nice hostel in Bella Vista which is a cool part of Santiago. Good facilities and nice staff. Only thing I didn´t like was that there was nowhere secure to leave your bag if you´ve checked out and want to come back later.
Solid hostel, staff excellent, got some inside tips and connections to make your time incredible. Took us all out to a local nightclub, got us all in for free, and took care of us all night and made sure we all got home safely. Knew everyone on a personal basis. Could live there for months! Special commendation to Marlies too haha my schmeerlop. Has party hostel vibes, but also very lax and chilled out ones too, so caters to most travellers. Will come back again if in town!
I really felt at home here, it's very easy to meet people in the common areas and the staff is so friendly! The hostel is right in the middle of the Bellavista area, so there are lots of restaurants and pubs/clubs nearby. Comfortable beds, good showers downstairs, hammocks in the garden: I didn't want to leave and ended up staying for weeks instead of just a few days. Love this hostel!!
