We are renting this spectacular Loft Apartment located only 3 blocks away from the hostel. You can still use the facilities at Don Santiago, joining our weekly activities and having the very best breakfast that you have had at any hostel in South America! If you have been staying in hostels with stupid rules for everything, try us! We appeal to travellers common sense! We have no reception desk at the hostel; we want you to feel at home. (Staff is always around in order to answer questions) Don Santiago is a hostel for travelers run by travelers. We are proudly one of the cheapest hostels in all of Santiago, and as you can tell by the reviews here, we provide a real free breakfast! (Scrambled eggs, toasts, real coffee (no instant coffee, tea, loads of fruits (orange- bananas-kiwis, grape) milk, butter and jam. Also, we have Vegemite available for Aussies and Brown Sauce for English people!) In Chile, you can easily pay 4 USD for this kind of Breakfast in restaurants. (Oh, and sorry that Chile is so expensive for all you travellers coming from Argentina, Peru, and Bolivia - that's not our fault!)

During the day, children play hide-and-seek among the colourful sculptures; while night-time sees the plaza morph into a youngsters' meeting point before the party moves on to one the many nearby clubs and bars. Our staff are really cool, always ready to throw a party, or just going out to the best spots in Santiago. Diego is musician, a little crazy but really cool, Ibo l, always up for hanging out and partying, Ester, already a legend making fresh breakfast every morning and Pato whos, has been working with backpackers since 1999. The house has no rules, only respect each other. The famous Pisco sour madness evenings on Wednesdays and BBQ`s on Fridays. Peace for all of you!
