La Chimba Hostel has been a favourite of international backpackers and independent travelers visiting Santiago since we opened in 2005. Our guests have consistently praised our property and service over the years and among other distinctions, we were the first non-European hostel to win a World Top Ten Hoscar award. Our location in the heart of Barrio Bellavista guarantees a fun and interesting stay.

La Chimba is a unique, eclectic property comprised of different buildings, each with its own character, some quiet, some social, all connected by labyrinthic walkways, patios and courtyards. It is easy to meet people in our three living rooms, two kitchens or our awesome Pool Salon. We also have an art gallery displaying fine artwork from local and international artists.

Our young staff is always ready to suggest authentic places for those wanting to get under the skin of the city. Our activity manager is always planning fun events for our guests such as barbecues, dinners, salsa lessons, poker nights and walking tours, among others. Guests can at any time use our world’s best hostel Pool Salon, the football, the movie room and even a pinball machine.

Digital nomads will love our unrivaled internet connectivity with our dedicated fiber-optic internet service that spreads free high-speed Wi-fi through the entire property allowing all our guests painless internet access at all times.

Our neighborhood is packed with the city’s best bars and restaurants, and clubs. The famous Santiago's Pub Crawl tour, that gathers travelers from all around town, has its meeting point in the bar across the street from us, and the crawl never ventures more than four blocks from our door.

You must be 18 or older to check in to La Chimba.

Travelers over 35 may only book private rooms.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

This funky laid out hostel is expensive for what you get. The rooms are nicely decorated, but the common area is minimal and basic. And dragging your luggage through all the different nooks and crannies is a bit difficult. It's also a very old building and our private room was next to an outdoor common area that echoed with all the voices making it difficult to sleep. There is a nice restaurant square a few blocks away. But we found Bella Artes to be the best area to stay in and visit Bella Vista by day.

Theft:
In our tired state traveling from Australia the day before, we forgot one of our iPhones plugged in in the common area as we were catching a late flight to Ecuador. As soon as we got Internet, we emailed the hostel and asked if they found it and could hold onto it for us until we returned in a month. We received a response from an employee, Diego Herrera Montellano saying it was tempting to keep it, but he would hold it for us since its not safe to leave at the hostel. We sent multiple emails in the weeks coming up to our return with no response. We finally called and were told he no longer worked there. We found him on FB, but he hasn't responded to our emails. The manager was very nice and recommended we file a police report, but said it wasn't there and no one else knew anything about it. It's a sad thing when you can't even trust the staff. Shame on you Diego Herrera Montellano!
