I travelled Chile for one year, and kept Santiago as a base, returning every couple months to a new hostal or airbnb. By far, my stay at Hostal Sendero Sur was the best! I stayed in a single room, and the bed was so comfortable, the room was simple but cute and well furnished. There was no breakfast but I did get coffee every morning, and actually preferred that because the hostal is in the awesome neighbourhood of Providencia, so there are amazing breakfast and brunch options nearby. Whether a quick empanada in Parque Bustamente, or a short walk to Barrio Italia on a weekend for their amazing brunch options, or even a short walk to Bellavista for some good greasy food, the hostal is perfectly situated. I went hiking almost every day to Cerro San Cristobal, again, a very short walk from hostal. After partying with friends in Bellavista, it was so nice to not have to take a cab to far neighbourhoods, and to actually be able to walk home. I loved getting fresh bread and cheese and just chilling in Parque Bustamente on a picnic blanket with friends, or by myself to read. The hostal is literally across the park. Oh, and the guy who works there is so friendly and attentive. I practiced spanish with him, but he also spoke English. The price you pay for the convenience to local attractions, service, and comfortable sleep is incredible value! 100% recommend Hostal Sendero Sur and I'll definitely be back soon!!!
