Liked: We liked the open spaces and the common room was super cozy and nice to hang out. The staff went out of the way to help us and hang out with us. The electric blanked in the double was amazing.

Disliked: The location was safe but somewhat far from lots of attractions.

Liked: The staff is very helpfull. We even got breakfast on the day we arrived (although we didn't sleep there yet) and it was amazing. Best breakfast we had so far. The guys made us a wonderfull BBQ (Try to stay there on Fridays ;-)) and they are always there to help you. I even had a little Jam-session with them.

Disliked: The showers could use a little painting, but they had really hot water (which is not that common in Chili, we found out).

Liked: Nice little common area- though a bit crowded. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

Disliked: Bathroom was really really old and dirty. Only dorm room had the only window down to the terrace at the back where people tended to sit and talk until late.

Liked: A convenient little place in the central Santiago, and one of the best breakfasts we've had in South America. The staff is nice, relaxed and cool.

Disliked: We stayed at Don Santiago for a couple of nights and there were some things we didn't like. When you a staying in the double bedroom it is located just under the staircase, which makes alot noise. In the dorm room there might have been bed bugs, because one of us got nearly between 50 and 100 bites just in one night.

Liked: The decor was really cool, and we had a huge room with a balcony. The staff were really helpful and friendly and spoke good english - Victor even acme with us to talk to a taxi driver to make sure he didn´t rip us off. The breakfast was also great - fresh fruit, scrambled egg and hot bread with butter and jam.

Disliked: There are 2 showers - one of which was really good (the one that is just a shower room) but the other (the one above a bath) was hot and cold and not very powerful. And the breakfast table only sat 6 people, so if you came down and it was full i guess you would have to wait...

Liked: Very nice staff, very clean and silent but also a good place to meet people. They have a very warm and comfy atmosphere. There is a reason why this hostel has one of the highest ratings.

Disliked: If there is one thing to improve it would be a sign at the wall. However also without that it is not too hard to find.

Liked: It's a very nice hostel with tasteful decorations and a very good breakfast served until 11 a.m. The common living room is very cosy and a good place to meet other travellers. They also have a fully equipped kitchen and supermarket is 5 min walk. Very friendly english speaking stuff. The rooms on the streetside are a bit noisy (traffic) but thats no problem because they give you earplugs for free. We would definitely stay here again.

Liked: everything about the hostel is just perfect! the interiour is more of a piece of art than just a hostel, the artistic designs and decorations are beautiful. the hostel is very clean and the owners superfriendly. at the morning table they serve a nice breakfast where you easily get in contact with other guests of the hostel. or when they offer a delicious bbq to all guests for a more than reasonable price. to cut this short: it feels like coming home to a big family from the very first minute on...

Disliked: nothing
