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). The hostel is a block and a half on the left

From the airport:
Airport Pickup
Send us your flight details to and we can arrange a door to door pick up service. This costs aprox. us$12 per passenger. We will get back to you with confirmation and details.

You may also hire this service in your own. Just walk up to a 'Trans VIP' counter and with our hostel name or address they will bring you to our doorstep for the same rate ($7000 clp).

Alternative 2: (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.

Alternative 3: (TAXI) Do not pay more $20,000. pesos. (If the taxi uses the express toll road, $1.000 pesos more). Anything more than 20.000 Pesos is a rip-off!
