Love this place. Incredibly relaxing, so many places to chill out. Small, adequate kitchen, staff are great and breakfast light but good. 10 minute walk from the plaza, ideal for couples wanting to relax before or after the heavy inca trail. Recommend!

Very kind staff. Very clean and breakfast for 8Soles looked good (we didn't choose to have it ourselves) Wifi wasn't fantastic, the router needed to constantly be reset. Location is good but note not on the beach but over the road. Kitchen good to whip up something simple. Good for a short stay, Paracas doesn't really require more than two nights anyway I would think.

Enjoyed our stay, helpful staff - WiFi in our large room. Very noisy but of course we have ear plugs, we had a road side room though. The beds are very small too, we just fit - if you are a big person or two big people perhaps check the bed size before checking in. Breakfast good.

Good breakfast, eggs, yog, delicious bread, three fruits, two cereals, hot drinks and yum spreads. Wifi very good, location great. More of a hotel but do enjoy the lovely courtyard. Helpful staff, an all round good stay. Would return.

9th May 2014

Incredibly basic but if that is what you are after it will suit you fine. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend to others. Basically behind bus station, and can be a little hard to find and we ended up walking the wrong way. Remember no breakfast included and check-in is actually 2pm not 12pm. Also you cant stay on past chck-out you gotta take your stuff and leave, a little rough.

Great staff, beautiful garden. This hostel would be amazing in the summer as it is light and bright and close to the beach. Large rooms and good bathrooms and kitchen. Communal room not too exciting and breakfast bit of a let down - cereal, yay! No milk, boo! Would stay again, great little shops and supermarket nearby

Fantastic location, very helpful and friendly staff. The private rooms looked incredible - we were in a 8 bed dorm which was good too. Don't forget your eat plugs, we never do so we were happy. Breakfast was yoghurts, corn flakes and cheese toasties, very nice and something different. Wifi very very good. We enjoyed our stay, only communal area a little small but only as outside was too cold to be. Kitchen was very very well stocked, so impressed.

Don Santiago Hostel, Santiago, Chile
6.0
30th Apr 2014

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 choose to get up, which in a small dorm room is not ideal and also means additional people using the already sparse facilities eg. Lockers, showers etc. This occurred all three nights.

View Property Reply

Dear customers: the 2 fellow buddies you saw sleeping in the couch were sleeping FOR FREE as they got stolen at the bus terminal, and they came back to our hostel. What did you want us to do? Kick them out? No way, we let them sleep for free in the living room as we were fully booked. That´s all the story. If you guys would´ve been a bit more social at the hostel, you would´ve known the whole story. Don Santiago is a hostel for travelers and backpackers. Please remember that.

Hostel Lao, Mendoza, Argentina

26th Apr 2014

Great location and lots of space to relax. Our room was however very very small, it was a private double, shared bathroom. Nice and quiet in the garden but NO where to store your belongings. Was rather strange also having friends & family over for a BBQ during our stay, we could pay $150 to join in but that is a bit pricey for us backpackers so instead we watched as kids ran around all evening screeching & jumping on the couches etc. I love kids, but it wasn't really appropriate for a hostel

View Property Reply

Small room for a small price! Storage; cupboard, clothes rail+hangers+backpack spaces. Good enough for most. Event/kids-AR$150 for a 3 course meal with plenty of booze is hardly steep. We are a family business. Argentina is a family orientated culture. There were 3 kids here for 3/4 hours. Most guests told us how much they enjoyed meeting locals. I would recommend doing the same, not just with locals, but with guests in the hostel. Join in, meet people. Have some fun. Smile. Its good for you.

LOVED this hostel. Amazing garden, lovely vibe. So much space to relax in. We were upgraded to a private with ensuite was large with so much space - seemed like a hotel and not a hostel. Breakfast just cornflakes, bread and spreads but the breakfast lady was such a sweetheart, even though we didn't speak the same language. We also had all our bedding changed half way through our three night stay! Great! Loved Cafayate and this hostel helped that too.

Pretty average all round. Not a great communal area at all, room was very dated. Breakfast just bread and medialunas plus drinking yoghurt which was nice. Found a dead bed bug in my bed too we changed beds in the actual dorm but no mention the next morning from the owner.

Intro is given when you arrive which greatly helps in your time here. Location not good, small hike to get back to the hostel from town - near large supermarket - plus. Breakfast, a joke, bread & crackers. If you don't drink tea/coffee you are in luck, you can have a glass of milk instead, however I tried to use that same milk that others were drinking to make cereal with and the man working almost had a nervous breakdown, tried to then make me use someone else's named milk from the fridge

Location is such a pity, as if you are staying more than two days the trip back and forth from town can be arduous after awhile. Huge place, no couches to relax just tables and chairs. Very basic breakfast, not even milk only the powered stuff which is disappointing - good to have media lunas though, some fruit would be good perhaps? Hostel very clean, having access to a laundry dream come true

wow this hostel is so so good. Breakfast has bread and spreads but also fruit and yoghurt, huge rooms with high ceilings and fantastic bathrooms. Great wi-fi, lots of computers to use, great book exchange, enormous common area, a DVD room, small kitchen is the only downside. Great wi-fi, lots of help from staff if you need it for booking things. I cannot commend this hostel enough AND a 11am check-out! Spot on - all for a great price. We stayed here twice, and love it!

It has only been open for about 5 months and is already falling apart a bit with locker doors, taps and hooks all looking as if they won't last the Winter however it is new and it makes the world of difference if you staying in hostels for an extended time. Mattress's and linen are all basically brand new, kitchen utensils are well stocked and the dirt other hostels tend to have has not yet been ingrained in every corner just yet. The building is incredible and we enjoyed our stay, would recomm

More like a family home, which is nice for. a change from a rowdy hostel. Would be good for older couples, not for groups. Big family kitchen you can use and a pool, the family are all there while you relax so keep this in mind. Breakfast was ok. Don't accept their bus station transfer. We caught our own cab and it was less than half of the $R40 they quoted us- bit cheeky!

We were moved three times as my partner was expected to be a female although we advised through this site we were male and female. The end room was good once we finally got to it. Breakfast was really disappointing, just bread and coffee - no water, cereal, eggs, fruit anything like that. So I ate nothing and had to go buy something to eat.

Lovely lovely spot. Would stay again. However rooms are a little shabby, which is ok as reflects in price. Breakfast was yum, best granola ever. But the lovely pool area stunk of cat p** and I don't think the girls working were very well trained, one would be running around doing a million things at breakfast time while the other would just stand and watch. The girls would be dusting the ground while we waited at bar to order and plates and glasses would sit by pool all day until the next.

Saturday night was an early night for me-got to bed about 11pm. That was when it started to kick off at the club next door and it went on until 2am. It was SO loud-your only option is to close the windows, but when you are in a small room with 10 people sleeping closing the window means smelly SAUNA! And even when the window is closed-there is no double glazing so is still extremely loud-even with my ear plugs in. All i wanted to do was get to sleep before my 5.30am wake up-it was so awful.

This is a great hostel with fabulous staff! So VERY unfortunate it is next door to the loudest club in Dublin! So lucky my partner both had ear-plugs in our bag , as we arrived home at midnight on a Saturday evening and it was PUMPING! (The same on Sunday Eve too). You NEED earplugs to stay at this Hostel. Really good location , great common room. Great for long term stay.

Alternatively a 20 minute walk to the river and all the main sites. Really Authentic Clean Hostel. Good shower too-although pressing the button every 5 secounds was a pain!! only bad point haha! 2 female travelers and it was all good at this Hostel.
