I stayed at Aji Hostel for four nights while burning time before a flight from Santiago, and enjoyed my stay. The location is great; it is five minutes away from a metro stop, and within walking distance of a supermarket and attractions like Cerro San Cristobal and the Bellavista area.

Located in the quite area of Provencia in Santiago this hostel offered comfort and a comfortable base to begin exploring the metropolitan region of the city. Breaky included and the odd nights of a free/very affordable dinner made the stay more homely and provided a good forum for meeting other travelers. Almost luxury for those backpackers on a budget, clean... More
