Great location and Comfortable Hostel
The Staff was professional and friendly and the overall experience was pleasant. Bathrooms were small and showers were acceptable at best. However, Hostal Forestall is in the best location in Santiago. For the price, it is worth every peso

Cute hostel in a great neighborhood
Great little hostel in a very convenient neighborhood - very well situated and within short walking distance of Bellavista and subway station. Hostel staff was very helpful and breakfast was good (lots of fruit in addition to bread and cereal). Only major downside was that it was very very loud in the evenings and hard to sleep if you weren't planning on staying out til past midnight. But it's a hostel, so expect noise and bring earplugs.

Very Good8.0
I enjoyed my stay at the Hostal Forestal very much. I stayed in a shared room with 2 bunk beds and 3 other girls. The beds were comfortable, I enoyed a good nite's sleep everytime. Each of us had a locker big enough to fit one medium-sized luggage plus a backpack maybe. I chose shared bathroom and that might be the only thing I regret because even though it was always clean I have this thing for shared bathrooms (I just found out). But the have hot and cold water and they lend you a bathroom towel for a 300 chilean pesos deposit, which is like half an american dollar. Nicest staff ever; young, international and willing to help. Nice atmosphere with good music (you can take your pick too). Breakfast is usually juice, milk, cornflakes, bread (they offer apricot jam, blueberry jam, butter and dulce de leche for your bread), eggs (which you have to cook in the kitchen yourself as you like), fruits and coffee/tea. I loved staying there, and I'd do it everytime I visit Santiago!

Friendly staff but overpriced
Whilst the staff were friendly I think the private room with ensuite was expensive for what it was. I ended up with a room right beside the front desk, which wasn’t the best set up for noise. I had to ask for toilet paper and towel, and my towel was not replaced on the second day of my stay. The bathroom was very cramped
