An old mansion that has been done up. Lots of space in the rooms as well as the common areas. It includes a pool and a grass area to hang out outside. The perfect way to recover from jet lag by having a swim and and a lie down on the grass reading a book.
The winter season has started - meaning amazing powder days in the beautiful Andes mountains. We offer the cheapest services to Valle Nevado in town and we are the first ones on the mountain! Contact us directly to hear more about our lodging-skiing specials.
'Buena Onda' (good vibrations) is what La Casa Roja is all about!
For over 10 years, La Casa Roja has been known as Santiago's funnest hostel. Thousands of backpackers from all over the world have enjoyed relaxing in our pool, meeting people in our big back garden and getting to know our super friendly staff.
The Australian-run hostel resides in a huge, beautiful 19th century mansion in the historic Barrio Brasil, where classic architecture meets world-renowned street art. You'll find dozens of reasonably priced bars and restaurants as well as a metro stop just steps away. You don't have to leave the hostel, though, to find excitement. We have nightly events like barbecues, movie nights, wine tastings, live music, and theme parties. Our huge back garden features a bar, pool (with swim-up bar), jacuzzi and even a cricket net. Many of the nightly events take place there, so you are certain to have fun and make new friends.
La Casa Roja makes sure you are comfortable by offering round-the-clock hot water, fresh towels and lots of clean bathrooms. The spacious dorms feature high ceilings and big lockers. A huge communal kitchen with multiple refrigerators means you can shop at the nearby supermarket, cook and eat whatever you like. Free Wifi covers most of the hostel's sprawling common areas, so you can stay connected easily. A big computer lounge serves those traveling without electronics.
We have our own in-house travel agency that offers every service imaginable from ski trips/equipment rental to local sightseeing tours. We go great lengths to make your stay fun and comfortable.

An old mansion that has been done up. Lots of space in the rooms as well as the common areas. It includes a pool and a grass area to hang out outside. The perfect way to recover from jet lag by having a swim and and a lie down on the grass reading a book. I'd recommend this hostel to anyone visiting Santiago.
Website needs updating as it mentions Spanish classes on offer but it doesn't. Was a little disappointed with that since I was intending to get a few crash course Spanish lessons. I can't complain about anything else. Staff were great too and very helpful.
Great hostal! Staff all speak fluent English and are friendly and helpful. Onsite travel agency is great for planning your trip and Pachamama Bus tour starts here (also recommended). Large hostal, you can be as involved as you want to be in the activities - BBQ nights etc. Lovely garden and pool. Large kitchen, plenty of space for all. Rooms are spacious and clean.
