As one guest put it, the Dominica Hostel puts other hostels to shame. Occupying a beautifully renovated house in the heart of Bellavista, it boasts modern, design-oriented accommodations with a fun, laid-back feel the likes of which backpackers usually only dream of. Solo travelers will find it to be a great place to make friends, and the English-speaking staff are always ready to provide friendly assistance with everything from laundry service to help with planning new Chilean travel adventures. The guest rooms are remarkably functional and even the dorms provide a bit of unexpected privacy. Common areas and facilities include a terrace, balcony, lounge, bar with a TV nook and foosball table, fully-equipped kitchen and grill. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the hostel.
The hostel is located in the heart of Bellavista, Santiago's bohemian and cultural district, mere steps from the funicular that takes you to the top of San Cristóbal Hill. Neruda's house, artists' workshops, live music, theaters and great nightlife are just moments away. However, the hostel lies in a quiet spot just a five-minute walk from the subway.
Food & Beverage
A complimentary breakfast is served each morning in the fully-equipped kitchen where guests are welcome to prepare their own meals. A grill is available, as well, and there is a bar for hanging out with fellow guests and having a drink or two.
How To Get There
To get to the hostel from the bus station, take the subway to Baquedano Station. From there, cross the bridge and walk straight down Pio Nono St. towards the hill for four blocks. Turn left onto Dominica St. and half a block later you'll arrive at the hostel.
