This is a great little hostel, with an excelent staff, cozy acomodations, in a nice location in Santiago. It´s an excelent place to meet travallers, very safe, with nice rooms. The only complain is about the noisy enviroment (because the street), but they do provide earplugs for free, so it´s not a problem. I definetly recommend this place!

I loved this place. All the staff were great, always up for a chat and offering advice on where to visit in Santiago and beyond. The rooms were bright and the bathrooms were clean. The human rights museum is close to the hostel and worth a visit. When I go back to Santiago I will stay there again. Lock up... More

We had a great time with the staff and the travellers at Don Santiago. The place is tiny but cosy and clean. It has a retro feel. The breakfast is honestly one of the best we've had in all the hostels in south america, with fresh fruits, eggs and toasts prepared to your taste, cereals, juices, marmelade, coffee, tea you...

We had a great three nights at don santiago. The World Cup game we wanted to watch wasn't showing so they looked it up for us on the staff computer and played it simultaneously with he game on TV. We got great restaurant suggestions in the area every time, and really helpful advice for getting around. The breakfast is as... More

This hostel has a very cozy feel - its got a lot of character and colour. Staff are amazingly friendly and helpful. They're real cool to sit n chat with. It's a small hostel so it's real easy to get to know everyone. Breakfast is amazing. Eggs, fruit, fresh fruit juice and different spreads including vegemite and nutella. Great location... More

We had a nice stay for our last days in Santiago. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. The breakfast is lovingly homemade and very delicious. The community, sharing stories and travel experiences is important in this cosy hostel. The style is kind of old school, colorful trash, we liked it! Thank you friends

The staff is very wellcoming and helpful. The beds are very comfortable, and every day everything in the hostel will be cleaned. The atmosphere is great, that's why I stayed 12 days instead of 5. However, one thing to improve is the kitchen equipment.

It is completely not on to have to come downstairs to the common/dining room to find bodies sleeping on the floor and all over the couches. This hostel accepts additional guests at a lower rate if you are happy to sleep out in the common area. This is very inconvenient as you have to sit on your bed until they... More

The staff was really friendly and helpful but in the morning when we were in a hurry - there was no hot water and I have stayed in cleaner places. Overall our stay was ok but I am far from being over enthusiastic.
