Thank you for this accurate and friendly review.
We are glad that you felt the good vibes of our hostel and that you felt welcome by all the Staff, especially by Angel.
Come back whenever you want
Ended up back in Santiago unexpectedly and found a private room at Forestal. It was really comfortable, warm and perfectly located for sights and great eating / drinking spots. I’d highly recommend this friendly hostel.
Nice review keensontour!
Always the unexpected is better. We are glad to know that you had a very good experience and that you will recommend us to your friends.
And keep expecting the unexpected.

This is a Hostal in the middle of the historic center and next to the Cathedral. Rooms are very old fashioned and in need of redecoration. I had a very small and shabby room with a shower in the corner. The wc was across the hall. The area is very noisy so you have to expect some noise from the outside even with a room at the back of the building. Also a lot of noise from the hall and the stairs. There is a bar on the ground floor. Wi-fi was very slow.
Thank you for the review, but we think you got confused about Hostels. We are not next to the Catedral, neither in the middle of the historic center. And we don`t have a bar here :(
Be welcome to visit us anytime!
Big hug from the Staff HF :)
An amazing hostel, one of the best in all of Chile. I stayed here for a long time while waiting for a package to be delivered and the staff couldn't be friendlier, more helpful or any kinder if they tried. A great atmosphere in the hostel which is cosy, fun, friendly and very clean. Everyone that works there is amazing and I would just like to say thank you to Kass, Juan, Angel, Ben, Erica, and everyone else. Thanks for all the fun and I'll be back very soon
Thank you so much for the lovely review!
It was a pleasure having you around. We miss you already, and we hope you can get back to visit us soon <3
Big hug from each of us from the Staff HF :)
Stayed here for a few nights and are so happy we chose this hostel! The Brazilian lady at the front desk (can’t remember her name!) was outstanding, she goes above and beyond to help and is super friendly. The hostel location is perfect and in walking distance to everything you need. Rooms are big and clean, we even had a TV! Cooking facilities and BBQ are also great.
Great review! Thank you so much <3
It feels great reading that, it was a pleasure!
The Brazilian lady name is Erica :)
We hope to see you again on another occasion.
Big hug from the Staff HF
We stayed a night in Hostal Forestal and decided to book it again on our return to Santiago. We liked everything -- the room, the social vibe, the location, the breakfast; but the main thing that stood out to us was the staff service at the front desk. The staff were super helpful for anything and everything -- booking really early taxis to the airport, getting bus and subway directions to a temple on the outskirts of the city, making homemade hot chocolate when the machine went down, etc. They also gifted us a free bottle of wine to thank us for re-booking with them, and we enjoyed the wine while relaxing in the lobby and chatting with other guests from around the world. It didn't matter who was at the front desk -- each staff member was friendly and helpful and went out of their way to make sure that we had everything we needed to give us the best possible experience. We would definitely stay here again if ever going back to Santiago! :)
Amazing review AndreaMariePerry!
We are so glad to read that! Thank you so much :)
You should come back to have a good time with us at the hostel again <3
