La chimba is a sweet hostel. The staff and volunteers were all great. The hostel is beautiful with tons of art everywhere and the night life is always big in the neighborhood.

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.
