Great hostel near to a supermarket and metro station


Our taxi struggled to find property and was expensive from main bus station. You need to use metro to get into town/around santiago. Nice small pool and clean. Breakfast was laid out an hour late, but was nice.


This hostel is amazing! When I first arrived, thanks to the hostel's detailed email with directions, the cab driver tried to scam me. The owner, Ivan, came out and talked to the driver and saved me. This hostel is clean and the staff is awesome! There is always light music in the living room, making it feel warm and friendly. The owner is more personable than any other I've encountered and has cooked us dinners out of his kindness and has even helped us in booking tickets to the opera.

Great hostel. My friends and I stayed there for the long weekend this October and everything was as stated in the description. Ivan does a phenomenal job tending to his guests' needs and gives plenty of information about Santiago, as well as how to navigate the city in the best way. Best hostel in Santiago!

I'm giving this hostel a straight 100 not because i'm lazy but because it really deserves it. During my 15 days trip in 4 countries of South America, Ventana Sur was the best. 15 mins walk to city centre and situated in a really safe and calm neighbourhood. You can have 24 hours of hot water and a satisfying breakfast. The place has a real friendly hostel vibe and Mr. Ivan is the best host there can be. He will make you feel as you are staying with a relative.


I really enjoyed my stay at Ventana Sur hostel. Ivan is amongst the best hostel owners I've ever met in my 15 years of travel experience. He is very personable, kind & accommodating. The hostel is clean, safe & friendly. It is as social or private as you'd want it to be. I was traveling to Santiago for a conference, so it was nice to have the option for privacy as needed. I would recommend staying at Ventana Sur, and have to thank Ivan for all of his help and kindness during my stay in Chile.
