Safe areas/hostels to stay in in Santiago?


I have a stop over in Santiago for 3 days/2 nights in around early June this year.

I was wondering what the safest centrally located areas of Santiago are. I am looking to stay in backpackers/hostels?

Thanks in advance,

Stay in the Lastarria/Bellavista area just east of the centre. There are a number of hostels, Los Andes receives a lot of recommendations. It is an area with god restaurants and cafes with wifi.

Try the Andes hostel, we were just there and it's in a great location. You can walk everywhere around the Bellas Artes area or jump on the metro. Lots of restaurants from cheap to expensive and good nightlife to boot. For cheap beers and crouded streets walk accross the river to Bella vista and sit down at one of the street cafes past the university.

Safe travels
