a very social, friendly hostel full of crew enjoying their travels around Sth America. I enjoyed exchanging adventure stories & info. A well appointed communal kitchen & big bathrooms with plenty of hot water. The staff are extremely helpful & regularly offer hints & tips on how to get more out of sightseeing & travelling in the region. Very convenient...

La Chimba was my first hostel in South America. The staff are friendly & helpful, the beds are comfy and the communal areas are great for socialising. The location in Bellavista is definitely for the party orientated, which is why I booked! However I had no trouble getting to sleep early my first night with the help of earplugs ;)
