The hostel was great! Amazing location for night life, fun and extremely helpful staff, great common areas, and comfortable and clean rooms. Wish the WiFi would have worked in all areas of the hostel.

Great hostel, plenty of people to hang out with. Have stayed here 3 times now. Place is clean, nice hot showers. Dorms have locking boxes right by your bed, private rooms lock well. Internet works well, but only in the front half of the hostel. The staff are very friendly, can help with tours, directions, etcetera.

Awesome place, pool table and other games. Activities such as hikes or bar crawls almost everyday. Staff are helpful with information, help with tours. I needed to move one of my reservation days, no problem, no extra charge. Showers are great, backrooms are fairly clean. Dorms are comfy, private rooms are nice. Lots of people to hang out with, drink, etcetera.

The staff was very nice and the beds were very comfortable. It was nice that breakfast was included. However, there were a few downsides. Our room was freezing at night even with long pants and sweatshirts on and the weather was still around 80 degrees Fahrenheit during the day. The three bathrooms we used, all had puddles covering almost every inch of the bathroom not from shower. The shower curtains need to be replaced due to mold and torn down from shower bar. Wifi throughout hostel needed

Didnt stay long but when I arrived I had to be buzzed in which was good. Beer and wine bottles everywhere. Like in the morning after scene of the hangover. The rooms have a code that youre given wihch is cool. It beeps loudly when coming in so it wakes people up. I had the second bunk and as I was going up the metal stairs fell off and I fell to the ground. Awesome. Some bathrooms were out of order. Overall the place felt really worn down. Wouldnt stay here again. Seems great to party though.

The hostel was very noisy in the back section near the pool table, people were running up and down hallways and this was at 3am. Bathrooms could do with better ventilation and a place to put belongings when having a shower.

I had a good time at La Chimba! Staff was great and helpful, breakfast really good and there was a very nice atmosphere! Great for people travelling alone beacuse it's easy to meet people. There's also a good room to watch movies if you don't feel like partying. Dorms are OK, but it's a bit loud in the rooms near the common areas.

Awesome hostel, one of the best of our 8 week trip so far. The 'Millhouse' of santagio - people we met here were entertaining & excellent location right in bellavista (for going out). Cheers to manager Lex and Ash for running a fun place & getting people involved as well as the other what staff who are all friendly & helpful. The big outdoor communal area for beers is good, breakfast fine, beds comfortable/secure & staff excellent.

Great location, five minutes from San Cristóbal hill, and in an área with a lot of bars. The hostel is huge, so you can hang out in one o f the social áreas, but they are away from the rooms if you want to sleep. The staff is friendly and helpful, Lex organised a walk up San Crisrobal hill, as well as BBQs and going out for drinks. Really enjoyed my stay here

The best hostel breakfast I ever made. A very large hostel with a fun decor. The room was clean , but there was some mold on the wall and I sneezed all night .
