After exploring the entire city, Bella Artes is by far the best area to stay in. We booked in for 4 nights and two apartments for three of us. These are studio apartments in a large multi building apartment complex. 'The Andes Apartments' are just a small random collection in this skyrise complex.

After exploring the entire city, Bella Artes is by far the best area to stay in. We booked in for 4 nights and two apartments for three of us. These are studio apartments in a large multi building apartment complex. 'The Andes Apartments' are just a small random collection in this skyrise complex. They are all identical, nicely decorated and very comfortable. They desperately need better quality knives and a coffee maker or French press though. The grocery store is next door and there are lots of restaurants and sites within walking distance (get a map from the front desk at the hostel building check-in). Supposedly, you get a fantastic view of the city from the rooftop at night (we made the mistake of going to The W Hotel, which no longer offers a rooftop bar).
Our stay here was fantastic except that the electricity blew on our second night, so they moved us from one on the 3rd floor to the 8th floor and then for some reason made us move to one on the 6th floor the following night. I thought they were upgrading us for a night, but no they were all the same. This was a hassle with all the luggage and groceries, but at least there's an elevator.
Walk or take the tram if possible. Taxis are as expensive as NYC. Negotiate a price ahead of time. We got in one with a rigged meter.

Looked exactly as it did in the photos. Can't fault it!
This is a Trusted Review. Why?
Across the road from the Bellas Artes subway station, this makes for a great base from which to explore Santiago; we only stayed one night here, alas, but between the rooftop terrace and general vibe, I could see what makes this a popular place. Lots of noise from the common area still present on the first floor though (even at the end of the corridor), which didn't let up until late at night, so perhaps not the best place to stay at if you need your sleep.
Andes Hostel is the best place to stay in Santiago, is very well located just in front of "Bellas Artes" metro station, when there you are close to everything (Palacio de la Moneda, la casa de Neruda, Plaza de Armas, museums, etc)and visit all these places by walking.
People at the reception are friendly and welcoming.
This is a Trusted Review. Why?
Staff very helpful with overall holiday plans, clean hostel.
Could have all day coffee and tea, do not see why not.
But overall great.
