Not enough bathrooms during my stay. Only one for everybody. Some bathrooms were under maintenance, I hope it is now solved. But very nice place, cosy garden, kind people serving you, confortable and so on.

la chimba is by far one off the best hostels I've stayed at in Latin America. So welcoming, feels like a big family. Not a bad word to say. Clean showers,clean rooms, lovely volunteers, the cleaners are amazing and very friendly.

Very good place to stay, it was comfortable and we had fun. I would make breakfast better. The guys at reception were very gentle and even they were not Chilean they knew the city and explained us what to do.

The hostel is close to the mainly places, bars, metro, and tourists points. The staff is friendly, and always have a answer for the questions that I asked. I just don't like that they hadn't a fan in the room. December is very hot in Chile.
