BLUE Tambo will never make you feel Blue! How could you not love this place. Right in between Valle Nevado, El Colorado, and La Parva as a serious snowboarder talking my first trip down to Chile I couldn't ask for more. It was crazy how much it snowed while we were there! This was a great find that we did... More

An ex-con may feel at home here but not sure about anyone else. The rooms were like jail cells, the staff unwelcoming, the hours for showering & heat were restricted, and the food was barely edible. And to top it all off, the place is more expensive than 4 star hotels just down the road in Santiago. The only redeeming... More

Great location and social area. The over stretched staff are lovely and very friendly but unable to keep the place clean. It's bitterly cold in winter and the heating was non existent. Very noisy as a club is situated within the hostel. My advice is to explore other alternatives before you book here!

I stayed there about 1.5 weeks in 2009 on a solo ski trip to chile. Pacho el dueno es de muy buena onda, blue tambo is a great hostel, serves you food 3x per day, its also a bar so the parties are great. Beautiful views of santiago below...that is when the smog allows you to see it! Definitly returning... More
