Good vibe. Lex was very helpful and friendly. Rooms are cold but plenty of bedding provided. Only 1/4 showers worked. Breakfast is said to be 8.45-midday but bread won't arrive till ~9.30 so might have to skip if wanting to do something with your morning. Good if you're there to party as late curfew and chilled atmosphere.

Ventana Sur is a great hostel in an excellent location within Santiago, with a friendly host. Sometimes a little rough around the edges, there is a great community spirit that comes with a smaller hostel and a particularly welcoming and helpful host. The staff generally were great throughout our 4 night stay. The pool is very clean and vital for...

I stayed here for a week at the start of my travels in Chile, and returned again on my way out. It felt so good to come back--like a family reunion, even though most of the travelers were ones I hadn't met yet. This hostel is very small but incredibly friendly and social, and Ivan makes sure you feel at...

The hostel was clean, cozy and the rooms were bright and sunny. Great location in the Barrio Italia neighborhood of Providencia. Close to everything! I stayed...

Lovely hostel with some of the better rooms in a large trip across South America. Reasonably priced with helpful staff. Splashed out a bit and stayed in the bungalow next to the pool. The pool maybe could do with a clean but the rest of the hostel was bright and clean. Breakfast is provided but very basic, which is fairly...

We read fantastic reviews of this place and booked 3 nights in the bungalow which cost a bit extra. We were unfortunately disappointed. We were kept awake every night because the social area was right outside the room - people played very loud music and were pretty rowdy until late every night. The hostel made no effort to encourage people...

I've enjoyed this hostel the most while on my 4 month trip. Ivan is awesome and easy to talk to, he has bbqs occasionally and allows you to use the full kitchen or living room for movies and etc. this is like having your own place and it is a great setting for fun talks and meeting new people.
