Santiago is the capitol of Chile and its largest city. It's set approximately in the middle of this long and narrow country. It doesn’t have the glitz and drama of Buenos Aires, but it has its own kind of charm for the traveler who chooses to stay in a Santiago hostel.
On a clear day, Santiago is spectacular – ringed by the snow-capped Andes and a smaller coastal mountain range, the combination of vivid blue sky and natural scenery can take your breath away. However, clear days are unfortunately hard to come by, as Santiago’s smog problem is notoriously bad. Most of the time a blanket of haze covers the city and the mountains are nowhere to be seen.
While staying in a Santiago hostel you'll discover that despite its flaws it is a really lovely city. From the upscale and glamorous neighborhood of Bellevista, to the bohemian charms of Barrio Brasil, its varied neighborhoods have something for every taste and budget. As befits a capitol city, an impressive array of museums and art galleries entice the culture seekers, and the many open green spaces and parks give the outdoor aficionado a breath of countryside in the middle of the urban jungle. Hedonists delight in the multitude of gourmet restaurants, cafes, and clubs to taste and explore. 500 years of civic history mean that the history buffs won’t be disappointed either.
Most Santiago hostels are located in Barrio Brasil or the Centro, both neighborhoods are within easy reach of metro stations and bus terminals. Breakfast isn’t always included in the room rate, but it is usually offered for an extra charge.

La Casa Roja
"La Casa Roja is popular in Santiago with a good reputation amongst travelers. Therefore, the crowd you will find here is very international with a high concentration of English-speaking people. The main downside is that the hostel allows smoking, so there is a smoky odour throughout the corridors, but not in the dorms as they are nonsmoking. The colonial high ceilings and wide corridors also contribute to the charming feeling of this hostel....
"The Bellavista Hostel is less about a 7 minute walk from the Baquedano metro station and is pretty easy to get to. From the metro station, walk three blocks towards the "river" and cross the Pio Nono Bridge. At the second street after the bridge, turn right. You will be on Dardignac. Go another one and a half blocks and the hostel will be on your left. The place is very clean and hygienic. It is a very relaxing and comfortable place to...
HI Santiago Hostel
"HI - Santiago de Chile Hostel, also known as Cienfuegos HI, is a nice and relaxed hostel in the central area of Santiago.

The area is quiet at night, but barrio Brasil is very near and there petty crime happens, so at night if you're not in a big group, it's better to return to the...
"This is a great hostel. It's small and friendly, and has only recently opened. There are only three shared dorm rooms which gives the hostel an intimate and friendly atmosphere - there's a good chance you'll get to meet everyone who is staying at the hostel.

Happy House Hostel
"Happy House Hostel is housed in an old, three-story mansion with well-done decor in a modern, eclectic, shabby chic style. The hostel is gigantic in size but maintains a casual and cozy feel.

Plaza de Armas Hostel
"This is one of the nicest, friendliest Hostels i've ever been to.

Don Santiago Hostel
"Loved Jamming sessions!!! - Best staff ever!!!! If you are looking for a party hostel, this is not your place. I personally try to avoid those hostels at all cost. If, on the other hand, you are looking for a super laid back atmosphere where everyone know everyone else, pisco sours abound, and EVERYONE is invited to the jam session in the music room (yeah! its got its own music room, how friggin cool is that!!) then Don Santiago is the place...

One of the best features of the hostel is the staff, all of whom are outgoing, friendly, and available to assist with any questions about the hostel or the city. It is secure, as you must ring the door for entry. There is an issue, however, with entering the hostel late at night. There is no curfew, but reception is not manned twenty-four hours and so if you are going out and returning...
"More Hotel than a Hostel - This is a nice new and clean hostel in a great location. It is just more like a hotel and not a hostel. No real travelers vibe. No activities. No easy common area to congregate except on the 4th floor roof area. The rooms were clean but the shared baths were not and they really need to be serviced during the day. It is a great value and I do recommend it but you may find better options." … "… centres...
