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!

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.

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...
