|Über uns||A new kind of hostel in Santiago, Chile. Always book through our website www.castillosurfista.com|
Opened in 2012by a California surfer, we are a bright and rare hostel that is located a short walk from everything, but the neighborhood is safe and quiet - EARPLUGS AREN'T NECESSARY for a good night’s sleep. Close to metro Baquedano in Barrio Providencia. Check the map and you'll see we are truly at the center of it all!
WINNER OF THE HOSTELBOOKERS CLEANLINESS AWARD JANUARY 2012
Come and witness Chile's current surfing boom through a unique fusion of CALIFORNIA SURFER and KNIGHTS OF THE ROUND TABLE, nestled within a large 100 year old house in Santiago's BEST and SAFEST location - only a 10 minutes’ walk from metro Baquedano, Barrio Bellavista, Cerro San Cristobal, and Plaza Italia (the "Time's Square" of Santiago.)
My name is Jonathan, a lifelong traveller and surfer. This hostel is new, a place I created for tourists, backpackers, students, ocean lovers, and gonzo spirit soul surfers. This is a bright remodeled house with age and a magical almost ghostly vibe, where I decided not to cram the rooms with beds so you and intimate groups of new friends can stretch out and have the entire house to yourselves, complete with a large patio with BBQ, garden, hidden grotto, spacious kitchen, LED TV and Nintendo WII room, dining room with a big lion-headed chandelier, and a computer room with free internet.
The tables are shaped like surfboard tails, the lights fixtures are antique gothic candle bulbs, the floors are checkered like an a 80’s music video, and the back patio is home to a skateboarding dog. You’ll never find a hostel like this anywhere else.
