    Everything about this place was great. Great location. Nice ammenities and atmosphere. The staff, particularly Alex, was amazing. Not only was alex very helpful for helping me find great places to eat, great things to do, advice on other cities I’m visiting, but he was also the nicest person I met in Santiago. He really helped me make the most of my stay. Highly recommend Hostal Forestal

    Great hostel with a central location to explore Santiago. Our room had a heater which was appreciated and bed was comfy! Showers were slightly temperamental but mostly warm. It would have been useful to have a couple more as there were only three for the whole floor. Staff were really friendly and helpful.

    Became my home base in Chile, returned 3x for the people. Night shift Alex is ABSOLUTELY amazing. Entertaining and teaches you lots about culture. Above and beyond at 4am helping me plan trips to both north and south! Pablo and Connie are so sweet too. Super cool travelers you meet in this home atmosphere. Common area is a gold mine to talk for interaction. Need renovations to stay on par with new hostels. Morning shift guy can be late and didn't book my reservation. Lucky Pablo helped me!

    Very happy with my stay at Forestal. The location is excellent, just several blocks from the Plaza de Armas as well as multiple museums. Room was comfortable, bathrooms are private and the staff were helpful.

    As a solo traveler from USA this place welcomed me and helped me with any questions I had. All the receptionists spoke English, and were all very kind. The location is a little sus at night as I found out, felt pretty secure still, but close to a lot of activities during the day!

    This is a good hostel. The security is a little extreme, as in inefficient. One person controls in and out of the hostel as well as the luggage storage. A bit annoying. Staff also made an error in assigning my bed, and woke me up in the middle of the night to suggest it was my mistake and never really apologized. Location is great, and I think that was just a misunderstanding. Would stay here again.

    The hostel is in a good location and has a pretty good vibe. I really wish they had more indoor heating though because Santiago is cold in the winter.

    The location is great and staff are very helpful. I rated this place low because of facilities and cleanliness. I had a hard time determining if it was just old or not clean. There are not many showers/bathrooms available for the number of people. Showers are very small and there’s no where to place your items with in the bathroom. Shower heads do not work properly.
