My name is Charles Pankow and I started Hostal de Sammy in Santiago with my best friend Sammy, an Australian Cattle Dog mix that I brought with me from the United States. Since opening of the hostel last year, I lost Sammy to cancer but his name and spirit lives on in the hostel. I like to say that staying at the hostel is much like staying at a friends house where you have a comfortable place in which you can rest after a long trip. The best part is that everything is included in the price with a great free gringo pancake breakfast, pool table, table football, 5 actually working computers with fast internet, and a living room with a super BIG TV and hundreds of movies to choose from. Sammy is your best friend in Santiago de Chile.
Sammy is looking for people that are willing to give up a few hours a week (OK, well more like 18) in exchange for the opportunity to live in the hostel free of charge. We even have a dedicated dorm just for the freeloaders with their own TV and DVD player. Interested? More
