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.

One of the best hostels I have ever stayed in. Personable and warming staff that are extremely helpful. The best breakfast you are going to find at any hostel. The metro station is around 2 blocks away and there are many very good restaurants in the area. Only around a 20 minute walk to plaza de armas and bella vista.... More

My girlfriend and I stayed in this hotel one night (March 19th, 2014). Our flight was cancelled and we thought we were lucky to find a place to stay around midnight without knowing anything about Santiago. The staff is very friendly and they gave us a private bedroom with a full size. People staying there were nice too and breakfast... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hey fellow travellers!Why staying with us?If you check the reviews, most of them point out our staff as the best. Do you know why? Because they love working at Don Santiago, and that happens when the staff feel secure about what they are 'selling' a We know that staying a hostel is sucha a life experience, we know we have hotel style matresses in dorms and double beds. We do provide the best breakfast in Santiago as follows:Brewed coffee, tea, ginger lemonade.Scrambled eggs varieties: oregano, merken (spice smoked chilli with coriander); and ciboulette.Fresh fruit salad with honey. We are a million miles away from the business-like check-'em-in check-'em-out hostels Staff is fantastically friendly and the house feels like staying in a home with friends where you can relax and play music with the guys there, or just listen to them play.Toilets are cleaned everyday, maybe you will have to wait a bit when the house is full, but usually when people is having breakfast, the rest of people is showering, so it works wellWe don`t push people to buy tours, seriously, Santiago is such a safe city, where you can go anywhere (wineries, beach, Valparaiso) by yourself, and we can get you instructions in order to make it cheaper. However, there are tours available, just ask. =)The house is from 1910, wood floors are creaky, and if you are a light sleeper, we do provide earplugs on request. We are not a party hostel though, please know that. Quiet time starts at 01:00There are no rules in Don Santiago, once again, We do appeal to 'travelers common sense'Welcome to Don Santiago!!!!! , Certificate of Excellence TRIPADVISOR 2012'and remember, what happens in Don Santiago, stays at Don Santiago ... more   less
