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
