Just by saying that when I first got to Don Santiago's hostel I was thinking about staying for 1 or 2 nights the most and the great staff, Alberto and Rodrigo, hosted me so friendly and kindly that I decided to stay more, I think that speaks for itself. They were all the time taking care of what you needed... More

The staff were really helpful, enthusiastic and laid back. Excellent breakfasts and good socialising in the communal areas. Location between 2 metro lines was good, plenty of shops, bars etc in the area and easy to get to airport and bus station. Unfortunately as it's a very old building, a few things let it down. The kitchen was tiny, very... More

So, this hostel is listed as one of the best in Santiago. Were it not for some bad things that happened to us, I would agree. Lets start with the good. The hostel is situated in an old aristocratic looking building, that is fully painted red. It's in a quiet street, with easy access to either supermarkets or the subway... More

Perfect breakfast with fruit and real coffee (it seems like they grind their own beans), eggs, marmite, nutella. The staff was helpful and nice and the beds cozy. The kitchen is not perfect but it doesn't matter. Definitely recommended!

Staff was super friendly and everything was clean. Breakfast was one of the best Ive ever had at a hostel, well worth it. Also one of the staff recommended an empanada place a few blocks away that ended up being the best empanada ive ever had by far... Definitely recommend

Everything about this hostel was amazing - the staff were super friendly and helpful, the atmosphere was cool and the breakfast was the best I've had! It was such a chilled out vibe and staying there was like being at a friends house. Definitely my favourite hostel in South America!
