Hostelworld says

La Chimba Hostel is set in the charming bohemian neighbourhood of Barrio Bellavista, just five minutes from La Chascona and the nearest metro station. Hostelworld guests have said the private rooms have 'all the amenities of a hotel with more character' and that they'd recommend this hostel because it has 'many open places to sit, mingle and drink'. This laid-back hostel has an outdoor terrace, clean comfortable beds and friendly staff who like to socialise with guests, hosting pub crawls, BBQs and more.

Property Description

La Chimba Hostel has been a favourite of international backpackers and independent travelers visiting Santiago since we opened in 2005. Our guests have consistently praised our property and service over the years and among other distinctions, we were the first non-European hostel to win a World Top Ten Hoscar award. Our location in the heart of Barrio Bellavista guarantees a fun and interesting stay.

La Chimba is a unique, eclectic property comprised of different buildings, each with its own character, some quiet, some social, all connected by labyrinthic walkways, patios and courtyards. It is easy to meet people in our three living rooms, two kitchens or our awesome Pool Salon. We also have an art gallery displaying fine artwork from local and international artists.

Our young staff is always ready to suggest authentic places for those wanting to get under the skin of the city. Our activity manager is always planning fun events for our guests such as barbecues, dinners, salsa lessons, poker nights and walking tours, among others. Guests can at any time use our world’s best hostel Pool Salon, the football, the movie room and even a pinball machine.

Digital nomads will love our unrivaled internet connectivity with our dedicated fiber-optic internet service that spreads free high-speed Wi-fi through the entire property allowing all our guests painless internet access at all times.

Our neighborhood is packed with the city’s best bars and restaurants, and clubs. The famous Santiago's Pub Crawl tour, that gathers travelers from all around town, has its meeting point in the bar across the street from us, and the crawl never ventures more than four blocks from our door.

You must be 18 or older to check in to La Chimba.

Travelers over 35 may only book private rooms.

" A cool little hostel close to the bar/restaurant strip in Bellavista. Its a collection of old houses and quite a large hostel. They need to do some basic maintenance - the bathroom door in our room wouldn't close, and three of the lockers were broken and need repair. Beds are comfortable and breakfast ok - fresh bread, butter and marmalade. Would stay again, but with a but of effort they could have a better rating! "

La Chimba Hostel says

I think Barrio Bellavista is arguably the most interesting district of Santiago, as far as cultural attractions and vibrant nightlife goes. The area is an oasis of colorful low-rise colonial architecture with leafy streets and a village-like atmosphere, and just a short walk to Plaza Italia, the Times Square of Santiago. The Baquedano Hub Metro station is located here and is the station that provides the most connectivity of the whole subway system. I particularly recommend visiting Cerro San Cristobal (the Metropolitan Park, a tall hill with a cable cart and amazing views of the city) and poet Pablo Neruda's former house, which is open to visitors. Both are less than two blocks away from our hostel.We can cater for people with disabilities and our hostel is suitable for independent solo travellers and couples seeking a social place to meet other travellers and experience Santiago's culture and nightlife.
