Feel good: spacious, enough bathrooms for guests. Good music! There is a swimming pool! Not so good: the owner seems very enjoy talking and drinking with his guests at late night then he get up really late the next day you have to wake him up and ask him for the breakfast. If you have a laundary, dont expect he can give you the same day or next day. He dont use a dryer and just use natural way to dry the clothes: hang them in the courtyard and let them dry naturally...have to push him everying.
Great hostel, and lovely staff! I had a great weekend away, and it was nice to just relax by the pool! Everyone is very friendly and welcoming, and made me feel at home. Location is ok, the metro is close by so you can go and see other places. But overall, i wouldnt hesitate to come back!

A hostel set in a residential area of middle income folks...Very quiet, very orderly and a host that is one a million. The man has the acumen to mix with all and yet stay alooof of peoples private lives. A wonderful place in a wonderful setting.
Excelent! The staff was very friendly and helpful and made me feel very much at home that I went back a second time!
LOVED Ventana Sur! by far the friendliest hostel. I thought it might be hard to meet people in a small hostel but it was certainly not a problem here. Everyone is very welcoming. Its like a little family away from home. Ivan is a very warm hearted generous man.I have never met an owner who is happy to invite you to their home and have an absolute blast doing it! I loved every minute of my stay.

It was not clean, 1 working shower what also not was clean. Room where not clean. no lokkers.
I had a great stay at ventana sur, Ivan the owner really makes you feel as if you're a guest in his own home & wants you to have the best time possible. The breakfast is good and served until everyone has eaten, no 9.30 finish, so everyone can have a lie in without missing breakfast if they choose. Good BBQs were also thrown & the staff Jason & Lena were great company as well as helpful.
Really loved staying here such a nice chilled out atmosphere! Days spent chilling at the pool and lovely BBQ's at the pool. Little out of the centre but great metro service. Thank you for making me feel so at home Evan and Jason!
This is the hostel for you! Don't think, just visit. Ivan is great, Jason is great, everybody is great. Friendly, relaxed atmosphere (they like a BBQ) and the pool is amazing. Small, but amazing. We spent a week here while I recuperated from an injury, and I wish I had a worse injury so we could've stayed longer. Great location, just wow. Great. Don't think, BOOK!
Very nice and special place in Santiago! Ivan, the owner is a very friendly and takes care of his guests! Our stay there feels like home! The kitchen is very well assorted and clean, also the bathrooms are bright and tidy! Good music to relax the whole day. And finally very pleasant for Backpackers!!! We liked it!
Sorry the review has taken so long guys! We absolutely loved our stay at this hostel and would highly recommend it to everyone. We stayed in a private double room and it was the nicest cleanest room we had in our South America trip, the bed was so comfy!The staff are so friendly and helpful, it was like chilling out at home. The centre of the city isn't a far walk at all and there are lots of restaurants and shops very close by. Can't rate this place any higher than 100% but I would if I could.
