Amazing, helpful, and kind staff!

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 30 Jun 2016
The staff who work at this hostel are very helpful and accommodating. I found the amenities very clean and quite modern (while having a cool old vibe). I stayed at this place twice- at the beginning and the end of my trip. My first stay was excellent. I did not enjoy my second stay. The room faced the main road and was unreasonably loud, even with ear plugs. If you are a light sleeper I might request a room away from the main road!
I would definitely stay here again though!

I stayed here for a week, and had a good experience, the staff was friendly, and spoke some English. There is a pool area , and pool table(not in the best shape, but), and ping pong, lots of space to chill, and free internet. But I really appreciated the staff when I had a a bunch of friends over for a going away bbq/party, in the common area with the pool and all. They were very cool about it.

We stayed at the Happy House for a week while building with Habitat for Humanity. The staff were wonderful and helpful and the rooms were very cute and clean. Great experience. Breakfast daily, free wi-if, and lots of events through the hostel. Also a great place to make new friends!

It was great. It was very quiet. Rambling authentic building with good services and amenities. Good breakfast and friendly staff. Front desk staff helped me a lot with some IT problems. And then the airport bus was only a block away and a few blocks into the cbd. I'll stay there again.

The building is old and beautiful and they have done a great job remodeling and decorating, you kind of feel like in a palace. There are plenty or areas to lounge and relax indoors or outdoors, by the pool. The rooms are spacious, beds wide and comfortable. The bathrooms are big and clean.
Staff was friendly and helpful. We came back to stay here on our second stop in Santiago.

The staff were very helpful and friendly. The whole place was overall clean and tidy but being an old building the sounds travel a lot - from squeaking floorboards to other guests talking in the kitchen until 1am...which is ok unless you are a light sleeper.
