Cute hostel in a great neighborhood

Posted Jun 2, 2016 on Hotels
Great little hostel in a very convenient neighborhood - very well situated and within short walking distance of Bellavista and subway station. Hostel staff was very helpful and breakfast was good (lots of fruit in addition to bread and cereal). Only major downside was that it was very very loud in the evenings and hard to sleep if you weren't planning on staying out til past midnight. But it's a hostel, so expect noise and bring earplugs.

We enjoyed our stay at hostel Forestal. And came back again for our 2nd visit to Santiago. The cleaning ladies were constantly cleaning and the breakfast was pretty good - there was fresh fruit! We would recommend this hostel

I enjoyed my stay at the Hostal Forestal very much. I stayed in a shared room with 2 bunk beds and 3 other girls. The beds were comfortable, I enoyed a good nite's sleep everytime. Each of us had a locker big enough to fit one medium-sized luggage plus a backpack maybe. I chose shared bathroom and that might be the only thing I regret because even though it was always clean I have this thing for shared bathrooms (I just found out). But the have hot and cold water and they lend you a bathroom towel for a 300 chilean pesos deposit, which is like half an american dollar. Nicest staff ever; young, international and willing to help. Nice atmosphere with good music (you can take your pick too). Breakfast is usually juice, milk, cornflakes, bread (they offer apricot jam, blueberry jam, butter and dulce de leche for your bread), eggs (which you have to cook in the kitchen yourself as you like), fruits and coffee/tea. I loved staying there, and I'd do it everytime I visit Santiago!

Nice hostel, but too noisy

Posted Jan 20, 2015
Hostel is clean and staff are friendly. Located in a good neighborhood. Unfortunately our room was overlooking a court yard, and was just WAY too noisy.
