Great location, at a walking distance from a great number of bars in bellavista. Cool private twin room with comfortable beds. A lot of cool common areas, including a barbecue yard. Ok bathrooms (one had a terrible smell and the others were ok, nothing great and nothing horrible). Very basic breakfast. Good place to meet people and party. Overall, good...

Living in Valpo for a month I wanted to do a weekend getaway to Santiago. La Chimba was great. I met a lot of wonderful people, the staff was very friendly and helpful. Clean and I felt safe. One guy did get his passport stolen while there because he didn't lock up his stuff in a dorm style room. Make...

The female dorm was styled nicely boutique feel... great place to meet people and areas to chill out. Great location to bella vista bars, bohemian graffiti areas and the cable cars to get the fab views of the city

Poor party hostel. They dont do any activity to get the people of the hostel to know each other. The bulding is old, poor manteinance and boring. If u want to party go to another hostel. The volunteers where Great fun!

The section I was in had a super amazing living room with couches, bean bags and netflix, as well as a pool table. I managed to sleep through the noise in the...

For having travelled during 6 months through Latin America, La Chimba was one of the best hostel I experienced. It is clean, the staff is very sympathetic and the athmosphere is awesome! Don't hesitate if you want to stay in Santiago, la Chimba is the best option ever :)

Super easy to meet people. Clean. Great location. Adequate bathrooms and facilities. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The hostel is much bigger than you would expect. Already booked another stay here.

Bed bug alert: be sure to check the beds for signs of bedbugs. We picked some up in a single room. It truly put a damper on our trip. Worse: the staff did not help us at all and did not seem to give us the time of day.

This hostel was very average.. lucky I only had two nights here. The rooms were very small with no room for bags and no fans/aircon in the middle of summer. The hostel didn't have a great feel to it and I did not enjoy the atmosphere. The staff were not overly helpful either. Although the hostel was in a good...
