Staying at this hostel is probably everything you imagine a hostel to be. Hostal Forestal is for people who want to save some money on both accommodation and transport. It is located at walking distance of most of Santiago’s attraction. However the place looks like a true backpacker’s hostel: kind of dirty, unorganized but also welcoming. The staff was friendly and gave me great tips on interesting tours to take around the city. The location is definitely what makes this hostel great: I would pay much more than what a bed costs here to stay at walking distance from the beautiful PArque Forestal, which is in my opinion one of the best attractions Santiago has to offer. Of course, paying less comes with a price.

I thought that the costs for staying here in this hostel, particularly in terms of the great central location which it affords, were really good. However, I didn’t really like the hostel that much at all. First of all, I wasn’t really sure about how to enter when I first arrived. It’s not clearly signposted that its a hostel from the outside. I didn’t like the smell of “antique house.” It was particularly unpleasant. Some of the communal areas seemed ok at first glance. There was a pool table in one room, the kitchen was 24 hours and they had a BBQ grill for guests to use. But when I was showed to one of the rooms, it really put me off. I didn’t like the bunk beds, or the carpet, and the smell of damp was so bad that I couldn’t wait to leave.

I wouldn’t recommend this place to anyone. It was definitely a cheap place to stay in, particularly in terms of its central location, but it really needed a repaint all over and it was small and pokey. I liked the TV lounge with beanbags to crash out on. The space was light, airy and spacious, but apart from that everything felt incredibly enclosed and really suffocating. Also, I didn’t like the reference to smoking weed on the walls. It was too clichéd — insinuating that all hostel travelers are only interested in smoking weed, getting drunk and partying. It lacked creativity. Breakfast wasn’t bad — on some days they served eggs and other days avocado was included on the menu — but even that wasn’t regular. Some days the food was good and other days it was really poor.
