Four friends and I stayed at Don Santiago for a number of nights during our trip to Santiago and we all agree that the hostel and its employees really helped make our journey fun. The beds were comfortable, the people were interesting, and the wifi was functional. For the price, I can't think of a better place to stay. We... More

This was our first hostel at the start of what has so far been a 10 month trip, and we quite enjoyed it. We found most of the staff helpful, and I liked that it was located a bit out of the city, the walk is not far! We ended up going back there after some time in valparaiso, and... More

I stayed in October, 2014. When I made the reservation, donsantiagohostel@gmai.com sent me the rules of the reservation. Nowhere did it mention that check-in is at noon. NOWHERE; rather, they told me, "Send me your flight itinerary to know what time to be waiting for your arrival at the hostel." I let them know well in advance, and reminded shortly... More

Hey there! I am so sorry about that. I can not look into this matter as it was 6 months ago, however I am sure if you come back eventually you will have a great time. We have great staff and hostel has been renovated. Hope you find out check in/out time in order to avoid frustration when you travel... More

I would only recommend staying in the donsantiago if you don't mind being kept awake all night from staff and guests partying in the hostel. On two mornings there seemed to be people who werent guests sleeping in the common area. One of the worst hostel experiences in 6 months. Expected more given the high rating on tripadvisor. The wifi... More

BACKPACKERYOHOO, Propietario at Don Santiago Hostel, responded to this review

Dear Irish couple: I´m sorry but we advertise a youth hostel. Currently is summer time in Santiago, and people tends to have a cold beer in the patio, and, subsequently, to socialize. We are not a party hostel though. Curfew starts at 1:00, then people can choose between going out to parties, bars close by or go to bed. Unless,... More

Small hostel with the best staff ever, heplful, very funny and attentive. I stayed for the whole month and I have no complaints about it. The beds are comfortable, the breakfast is nice, no luxury but everything good and the prices are fair.

Don Santiago is a great hostel with a laid back vibe and lovely stuff. It feels like a house full of roommates (; All of them (I have met like Hasan, Daniela and Rodrigo) have been very helpful, care taking and funny! I would definitely stay there again!

The first thing you notice when you enter is the feeling of a house full of roomates. First time I felt in a hostel like the owner and staff were more concerned about us having a great time than the money. Breakfast is awesome, wifi is working well, super atmosphere, good location - all you need for a pleasant stay.... More
