Learning & Fun


It was the best experience I ever had in a hostel. I found a second family there that helped me find a better way to enjoy my traveling and life. The environment was so cozy and welcoming.
The friends that I made there I'm gonna carry in my heart for a life time.
The staff is great, the structure is really good, and they have a lot of partner places that you can go for free, wich makes the expierence really fun.
The best party hostel ever.



I’d definitely recommend La chimba! I had an incredible experience. The work was good, the place has a really nice atmosphere, the staff is amazing and a great location. I’m going to miss this place a lot!
