This is a gorgeous homely hostel that encourages socialising with frequent activities such as free Sangria nights.
The rooms are positively quaint and very comfy thanks to the ready-made beds and heaps of space. Take advantage of the 24-hour reception, bike hire, outdoor terrace and free breakfast. Can we get a “hell yeah”?
We recommend this hostel for the older traveller or adult that appreciates more of a relaxed vibe and a cosy, intimate space to either do your own thing or enjoy a nice chat with others.
“We connect our guests with the feeling of Chilean culture and much more.”
Sharing the same space as the reception is a lovely little seating area to hang out. It’s a top spot for reading a book, catching up with online work or simply picking the receptionists brain about fun things to do in the area!
For a little bit extra you can enjoy a continental buffet breakfast to start the day right.
As for rooms, you can choose between:
Small single room
Budget twin room
Triple room (private/shared bathroom)
Double room (private/shared bathroom)
Quadruple room (private/shared bathroom)
Pretty good, eh? Whilst nothing fancy, the rooms do come with linen, lockers and big windows that let in plenty of light.
Location: In one of the privileged spots of Santiago very close to the main points of interest and handy things like transport, plazas and fun night spots.
Ventana Sur Hostal is frequently described as a home-away-from-home, and we always strive to include such a hostel in our top 3!
There are three boxes to tick before you decide to book your stay here…
You’re a laid back traveller
You’re happy to wear earplugs if you want to sleep before 10pm
…and be respectful enough not to make too much noise at 2am!
The overall atmosphere here is fun, but it is definitely not a crazy party hostel.
No doubt you’ll spend a lot of your time in or around the outdoor pool on a nice day. Otherwise you can snuggle in the living room with a book, or share a BBQ with some new found friends in the garden.
Bonus: Ventana is open 24/7 – no curfew and always a friendly staff member on hand to help.
There’s also a free daily breakast for everyone which includes bread, cereals, spreads and tea/coffee. Always a great way to start your day!
As there is a mix of shared and private rooms here, there’s a nice balance of traveller types. Solo travellers can even treat themselves to a private single room.
Location: Just a few blocks from metro St. Isabel, next to Bustamante Park in Providencia, at walking distance from the major tourist attractions (Bellavista, St. Cristobal, St. Lucia). It is a very safe neighborhood with restaurants, bars and supermarkets close by.

Update: Our former #2 hostel has permanently closed.
Next up is a modern 1940 building that has been transformed in to Casa Viva Hostel; a home-from-home accommodation perfect for female solo travellers. It’s the amenities that stand out here. Get excited for:
A lovely garden
Free buffet breakfast
Like we said before, this is more of a home so don’t expect any arranged activities or on-site bar. It’s the place to relax and enjoy some peace and quiet. There are a range of rooms from 2-bed and 6-bed mixed dorms, to a 6-bed female dorm. Couples can opt for a standard double with shared bathroom for that added bit of privacy. Casa Viva Hostel is in a safe, quiet multicultural neighbourhood. Santa Isabel metro station (line 5) is steps away.
CLOSED: Rado Boutique Hostel
Update: Our former #3 hostel has permanently closed.
Who loves a good old boutique hostel? We do! Rado Boutique Hostel was fully renovated in 2011 to bring you better design, warmer spaces and hotel-style rooms. The location is great. Right in the heart of Santiago’s pumping streets, in fact. The biggest attractions are all but 5-minutes away. This is a top recommendation for travellers that want access to nearby nightlife, but a quiet place to return to. Spread over four-stories choose from:
4-6 bed mixed dorm
6-bed female dorm
Twin, double & triple rooms
Each room has a variation of wall art, but you can expect the theme to follow famous music artists! Rado is actually the first hostel in Chile to install air-conditioning in every room in the house. Nice. No doubt you’ll spend some time on the awesome rooftop which includes a BBQ area. It’s a great spot to enjoy your free breakfast in the morning. There’s a big kitchen available, a living room and over 250m of common space for you to make use of, too. This is one of the best hostels in Santiago for
