Customer review

05 February 2010

Liked: Unfortunately the private double room faces onto a busy street. With buses which run until midnight. And there is no fan or cooling, so the staff provide earplugs as you have the door to the balcony open in summer. Oh and the buses start again around six.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: Nice big common area with sofas. It's not a big hostel so you won't meet tons of people if that's what you're looking for. Got a nice welcome breakfast (with fruits) after my night bus. Metro is very close and takes you lots of places. Turn-off: I witnessed one morning how the sheets didn't get changed before new guests arrived. Pretty gross when it's 35 degrees and everyone's sweating in bed.

Alan Hilvert-Bruce

06 January 2010 Alan would recommend this property

Liked: This place is in a pretty central location of Santiago, very close to a train station and in walking distance of the central shopping, eating and tourist attractions. It's one of those hostels which was previously a house, so comes with a "homey" atmosphere built in.It's a nice place to relax, breakfast is great (they serve actual fruit - rare for South America) and the staff are all helpful.If there was one criticism, it would be that quiet time downstairs starts at 1am, and you can hear most noises within the hostel. So if people are drinking outside, they may keep you up. I only encountered this once, but it didn't make me loose too much sleep.

27 December 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: The staff at Don Santiago are the best people ever. The breakfast is awesome as well. The location was ok-- if you want to go out at night, this is not the area to walk to bars. Most of them close at 12 midnight because of a city law. All the action takes place in Bellavista (i think thats the name of the area). However, Don Santiago is a fun place to hang out and drink pisco sours and chill. By far the best hostel i have stayed at!

Liked: Awesome, fun hostel with really friendly and helpful staff who speak excellent english. Also the garden out the back is so clean, no weeds at all. The staff must just roll all the weeds away. Recommend Pato's Pisco sours, they are delicious.

25 November 2009 Kati would recommend this property

Liked: from the moment we walked in the front door of Don santiago, we knew we had arrived somewhere special. This is like a small terrace house painted with beautiful bright colours and has a really really relaxed vibe. You come in and sit down in this comfortable lounge room to fill out your application. ... !!! The staff all speak fluent english and are really very friendly,approachable, and cool !!!! My first night i arrived, the hostel provided FREE ALCOHOL, the staff made lots of famous Chilean cocktails for everyone !!! The rooms are all clean and tidy as well as the bathrooms. The free breakfast everymorning is fantastic, eggs , toast, coffee, fruit. The location is good its a 4minute walk to the metro station and main road, but far away enough to not have really loud traffic. hmmm really there is no bad things to say about this place i can only HIGHLY RECOMMEND. I only booked this hostel because of the reviews....... and they all totally true. So I am adding another. xoxoxoxoxoxoxo
