    The location and the kitchen supplies

    It was too cold. Usually I like cold weather (and I like sleeping in cold bedrooms) but it was too cold. Not only the bedrooms but also the living rooms.

    The staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly. The breakfast was better than average. Santiago is a large city, no location can be perfect, but la chimba is in a trendy artsy neighborhood and the subway is close enough that one can walk there without much of an effort.

    Noise--not really la chimba's fault, bella vista in particular and south america in general come alive at night and there's street noise and bar/cabaret noise wherever you go, but if you are an early-to-bed sort of person bring ear plugs.

    The location was nice: the Bellavista neighborhood is pretty cool to hang out for drinks and trying good food. The hostel had a nice decoration and the breakfast was good (cereals and toast). Staff members, in general, were helpful in giving us information about what to do in the city, but some of them didn't speak any English which was frustrating at times.

    We got a room that was facing the street and it was very noisy Saturday night (loud music and people yelling) until 6am. The next 2 days the staff turned on loud music at 11pm. Our room was located right above the speakers and the whole floor was vibrating. We asked staff to turn the music down, and they did but it was still impossible to sleep, or even spend any peaceful time in our room. When we asked a second time the front desk guy said that he has to compromise between making the people who want to party happy and also keeping it quiet for those who want to sleep. The next day they were kind enough to move us to a room in the back of the hostel which was very quiet. While the first room was tiny - barely any space for luggage or a closet, the second was large and had plenty of space. So bottom line is that your experience will vary depending on your expectations (partying every night vs get some sleep) and the room you get. To guests, we recommend letting the staff know if you need to get sleep (i.e. if you have early flights or are leaving early for day trips like we did) so they can hopefully give you a quieter room. To staff we recommend avoiding putting guests in the room right above the reception as there is never a peaceful moment there.

    It was close to all the night life, but yet located on a quiet street. A very laid back atmosphere and the staff were all friendly and helpful.
