La Chimba Hostel has been a favorite of international backpackers and wanderers visiting Santiago since we first opened in 2005. With all of Santiago’s popular attractions within walking distance and a bar full of like-minded travellers - La Chimba is the place to be for backpackers visiting Chile’s capital. Immerse yourself in Santiago’s historic past and soak up the atmosphere at this 100 year old house turned lively hostel in the heart of vibrant Barrio Bellavista.
Over the years our popular hostel has been distinguished with Hostelworld's HOSCAR award a number of times, including Best Hostel in Latin America and 3rd Best Hostel World-Wide.
La Chimba’s bustling bar is the place to be for cheap AF beer, daily drink specials, beer pong, events and hanging out with travellers from around the world. Our bar also features an art gallery displaying fine artwork from local and international artists.
Our central, artsy neighborhood is packed with the city’s best bars, restaurants and nightclubs. You will be five minute walks from ATMs, money exchange, grocery shops, fruit markets, handicrafts, tour agencies, fast food, coffee shops and even Taco Trucks. Additionally, Barrio Bellavista is served by the Baquedano Metro Hub Station which provides the most connectivity of the entire underground transportation system.
