Ají Hostel Reviews

Ají Hostel is a multi-level house on a residential street just outside the busy centre. With its communal meals, guests will find socialization very easy and natural. Rooms are located up above the common general area, making for a quiet and uninterrupted sleep when desired.

The Location

The hostel is located within walking distance of supermarkets, restaurants, and the university nightlife district. It's a twenty-minute metro ride from the main bus terminal and within a few blocks of a metro station. There is no sign on the hostel, but it's the only bright red house on its street! The main square and fresh food markets are a thirty-minute walk or ten-minute metro ride. Although the possibility of buying fresh food is not directly nearby, the property's location near plenty of peaceful parks and fountains makes up for it.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The main floor of the hostel is where all the common areas and kitchen are located; the rooms are isolated up above, away from the noise. Options include private rooms, mixed dorm, and female dorm. Dorm rooms all have six beds, and the rooms are spacious with fresh air. The rooms become very dark with very little artificial light getting in, making for great sleep. Beds are made daily and mattresses are comfy! Rooms are left unlocked, but guests are each given a locker big enough to fit a large backpack. Each room has a toilet/shower combination. Hot water is variable and pressure is lacking.

Common Spaces

The hostel's main floor is where the couches, dining room tables, and kitchen are located. There are plenty of dining room tables to create the social atmosphere with travelers in the hostel all dining together. Kitchen is existent but lacks proper equipment; without quality knives and cookware, it is very difficult to make an extensive meal. Most guests don't cook as half board is included. Although the common areas are not overly cozy with a central area where everyone can gather, the true major positive of this hostel is the communal meals where travelers are almost required to sit together and talk. There are two communal computers in a quiet places also.

Breakfast and dinner are both included. Breakfast is a serve-yourself array of eggs, fresh fruit, juice, bread, marmalade, coffee, and tea. Dinner is a basic meal, which changes from vegetarian variations of pasta and rice.


This hostel organizes evening outings and is a great place for travelers to meet, exchange stories, and leave as companions. It is a very friendly and social atmosphere where many new friends can be made at every meal. The included dinner attracts a large crowd, making this hostel busy every night! With clean, comfortable beds in quiet rooms and great prices, this is an outstanding choice in Santiago.
