reloj de flores: near the beach

yeah i would go to vina or con con. well, con con is not exactly a resort. it's not even that pretty. i think you will get more of what you want in vina. this time of year, there are many local travelers, meaning chilean families. there's no other beach near santiago that i know of. the bus ride is not long. i remember it being an hour and a half from santiago. but why do you say you are arriving in santiago? you will most likely arrive in valparaise, like the above poster stated. the bus ride from there to vina is short as well. i stayed at the reloj de flores and was very pleased.

Casa Amarilla: The lady is too nice not to be mentioned

This hostel has no exterior sign and is on a very quiet not exactly brightly lit street. It is about 10 blocks away from the well known Casa Roja Hostel. It did not appear in any of the guide books I had checked. I had it down as a possibility from a VT recommendation. I did not stay here because it was full. (Read my story of arriving on a Friday night to the Brasilia Comuna area of Santiago without a reservation in my Chile Albums.)

The lady of the hostel was extremely nice. She made multiple calls to find me a place to stay.

Casa Roja: Not cheap, but good

This is a highly recommended large clean hostel with a good location, good kitchen and what could be called 'full hostel services'. Even with the good number of available beds it seemed to fill up Friday and Saturday nights during my visits in October and November. One would expect it to be even more difficult during the Chilean summer to arrive in the evening and find a bed. They do honor reservations.

A hostel with a pool and a poolside bar.

Scott's Place (SCS Habitat): Santiago's Worst Hostel

I needed a cheap place to stay close to the bus terminal.... My South America handbook gave me some addresses and I chose the cheapest one- huuuge mistake! Scott's place is a dirty hostel and the owner is... to be nice, let's say: different.
I do not recommend to say there. Especially not if you're on your own, because the hostel is in a rather dangerous area (only at night of course- you are still in Santiago).
The only plus about the hostel was that I met nice people there, but I think you do that in almost every hostel in South America.
Oh, and I also think it's the cheapest hostel in Santiago and that's why a lot of travelers, who want to be in Santiago for a longer period of time, stay there.
Again: Not recommended!

Tur Hotel Express: Tur Hotel Express - Terminal Tur Bus

This place is handy if you need to stay one night at Santiago waiting for a bus. It is located in the 3rd floor of the Alameda (Tur Bus) Bus Terminal. There is also a subway station in the terminal making it easy to move around Santiago. It saved me a lot of trouble when I found myself with no option but to wait for a bus next morning.

Hostel Nova: THE PAD

This Place was great, HUGE room, not a dormitory, me and my friend shred this huge room overlooking the streets of Santiago. facilities are terrible..... Theres a sink in the room with no fawcets, theres a cracked mirror in the room we stayed in, betds were pretty uncomfterble, the lock on the door prtty mutch held the door together! there was a shared bathroom outside..... and theres a techno club downstairs....

WHy do i recommend this place?
well where else can u stay in the centre of town, with a pretty cool view overlooking the street, with a cleaner making sure its fairly clean, and someone always at the reception desk aswell as in the kitchen, the family lives there, so no matter how *** poor the lock was, we werent worried-
and most importantly...
3000 chilean PESOS per night! thats right for two people!!!!!!!!
But if your a true backpacker. ull love this place, 5 minutes distance to everything...

Casa Roja: Covenient an Clean

An old semi-converted 9th century mansion. The Aussie owner is doing a great job restoring the mansion. It is very conveniently located, clean and pull of everything that's needed.

It is gradually being completely restored, so when it's completed it will be unbelievable. However you wouldn't even know that there is continual work being carried out.

It can be a little noisey, but hey, that's hostelling for you.

The dorms are empty. Where they could possibly fit 16 beds in a dorm, there is only 8. There's more room in the dorms than any other hostel I have stayed.

Also, the kitchen is huge and completely loaded. There's so many cooking utensils, and plates and wine glasses etc, you never need to wait.

Cost is about US$9 per night. Double rooms are more expensive at about US$15 per person.

Holiday Inn Express: Free lockers for luggage

Excellent service. Pillows are firm, water is hot, and broadband internet is free. I particularly remember the very helpful and pleasant Antonia from the front desk who helped us book tours, etc. Would have given it a full 10/10 if not for the location. It is near a wonderful restaurant belt but is kind of far from downtown Santiago.

It has FREE lockers in its basement for storing your luggage - extremely useful if you are planning to go elsewhere then come back to Santiago to take a flight home. After my business trip, I left my laptop and business suits there while I went to see the Atacama desert. There is also a laundry room in the basement if you prefer to do your own laundry rather than use the hotel's service. (First time I've seen this.) Not to forget the free broadband internet in your own room, free computers and printers-cum-photocopiers in the business centre as well.
