The location of this hostel is awesome. Right in the middle of everything you would want to do/see. The 4 person private room was a bit small but not a huge issue as we were only there for a few days. Wake up early if you want breakfast, 15-20 minutes before breakfast ends, everything is gone.

I speed 4 days on this hostel. It is a nice place, large kitchen - with microwave, oven - shared room with individual lighting and a cool decoration. They have a large living room with a nice tv and movies, for free. The wifi was good. The room, bed and toilet was clean. The staff, at the beginning was a... More

I stayed for three days and it was great. I haven't visited Santiago before, but at the check in they showed me every point-of-interest in a map that they gave me, it was very helpful since they told me where the minimarkets, liquor stores, bars and discos were. And there is a zoo not too far from the Hostel that... More

Now I'm going to give the honest truth about this hostel because for once TripAdvisor reviews failed me. The house states that it was newly renovated and it's very cute however it still needs a little touch up here and there. The hot water hardly works, when you use the sink your feet is getting wet (downstairs bathroom and main... More

We stayed at this hostel about 3 month ago even though long time passed since then, we believe it has to get our recomendation. First, the whole place is amazing, the design of the place is very welcoming, then, the staff was very professional and kind, Especially the owner who gave us feeling as we are at our own home....

We came to Dominica hostel after long time in Chile. Johan the owner is a really nice and welcoming person who helped us with everything. The facilities are really good and comfortable with the best location in Santiago.

The hostel is very good, free wifi, if you're going to Santiago in the winter like I did, don't worry they've got heaters in every room. The beds are very comfortable, and the style of the hostel is nice. The breakfast sucks though, it's not the best. It's right in front of the Cerro San Cristoban thing, very near a... More

I really had a great time at the Dominica Hostel in Santiago. I have been traveling for some months now, and I just needed a good bed and rest. I was highly impressed by their standards: the dorm I stayed in was super cool (I even had my own lamp and closet to put all my stuff). The showers were... More

We stayed in the hostel for 3 nights (during the weekend) the only good things about this hostel that the check out is at 12:00 and that they let you hang around and put your bags in the luggage room after the checkout. Reasons why we didn't like this hostel: the location is on the street with all the clubs... More

The Dominica hostel presents you with a perfect blend of laidback vibes in Santiago. Hostel with facilities, like free Breakfast, Free Wi-Fi, Luggage lockers and good localization. The best place to meet other travellers and visit famous tourist places around the capital. Facilities with metro and bus stop.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Good news!!! Dominica Hostel is finally open! This newly restored old house was especially design to receive travelers. Full of common spaces and with a practical design of the dorms rooms, that gives you the privacy that you need, we are sure that your stay at Dominica will be unforgettable!!!Located in the heart of Bellavista, the bohemian and cultural district of Santiago, the Dominica is the place to be. We are steps away from the funicular to the summit of San Cristobal's Hill from where you can have the best view of Santiago and from where you can explore the huge Parque Metropolitano. ... more   less
