In the heart of Barrio Bellavista, "the place to be" in Santiago, La Chimba Hostel offers guests an exceptional location, quality accommodations, and fantastic amenities. This Bohemian and artsy neighborhood is filled with restaurants, theaters, bars, clubs, and lovely boutique shops. Even better, the hostel is a quick five-minute walk from a major metro stop in Santiago, providing guests access to cheap transportation all over the city. Bursting with character, this funky and eclectic hostel fits in seamlessly with the trendy and hip Barrio vibe. La Chimba´s open and energetic atmosphere is perfect for getting to know other backpackers and we sponsor lots of activities for our guests, like hostel wine tastings and barbeques, which definitely makes for a once in a lifetime experience.

Prices are per person per night.

From the bus terminal:

Take the Metro to the Baquedano Station. This station is located in Plaza Italia. Cross the bridge facing San Cristobal Hill and walk 2 blocks to the street Dardignac. Turn left, walk one block, turn right (that is E. Pinto Lagarrigue, our street). The hostel is a block and a half on the left

From the airport:

Option 1: (PRIVATE CAR ARRANGED BY HOSTEL): Send us an email with your flight details and we will arrange a driver to pick you up at the arrivals hall. You will receive detailed instructions by email. Cost is $25.000 clp (aprox $35).

Option 2: (PUBLIC BUS) Take the Metro Bus to the Los Heroes Metro Station then take the metro to the Baquedano station. Cross the bridge facing San Cristobal Hill and walk 2 blocks to the street Dardignac. Turn left, walk one block, turn right (that is E. Pinto Lagarrigue). The hostel is a block and a half on the left. Cost is $1.800 clp per passenger, plus $600 for the subway ticket.

Option 3: (shared shuttle) There is a shared service shuttle at the airport that charges usd$13 per passenger. Good option for a solo traveler. However, we do not recommend this service after long flight as they usually have you waiting a long time to fill up the shuttle and then it may take more up to 90 minutes to bring you to our door as it drops off various other passengers along the way.

Option 4: (Airport Taxi) You may also get a taxi at the airport. The cost is aprox $35 usd. For safety reasons, make sure you book and pay at official airport taxi counters only .
