This hostel is a great place to stay and explore the neighboring district, Barrio Brazil. There is a good selection of restaurants and bars nearby, and it is about a 10-minute walk to sights in the center of Santiago. Plus, the hostel is close to the bus and metro station Los Heroes. 5/5 stars!

A very clean hostel with an amazing breakfast and very attentive and helpful staff. The wi-fi was reasonable and allowed for basic tasks, and the corridors (and rooms) were quiet. Due to time constrictions, couldn't use bathing facilities, so no feedback about that.

Room tip: been in a 6-bed room, which was astonishingly clean, so the single rooms must be suite-like

We only stayed in Santiago for two nights, but the Happy House hostel was a great find. Rooms are set in a old mansion house that has great character. The hostel has a great outdoors seating area (I went out to enjoy the winter sun) and a pool.

The included breakfast is great - especially the scrambled eggs. Staff are friendly and helpful in giving suggestions about the city. We would stay here again.

I stayed at the Happy House Hostel in May. It's located in the student district, walking distance to shops, restaurants and the metro. The hostel itself is a beautiful old mansion with super high ceilings, hard wood floors and lots of windows. Furthermore, the interior design is amazing. I didn't realize Chile was known for design, but I was impressed with this place as well as many others.

The outside area had loads of seating, a bar, a pool and washrooms. I found a nook by the washrooms to play my ukulele one night and a balcony another night. The staff are super nice and so helpful. I don't know a lot of Spanish and was nervous about booking my airport transfer. One of the staff members took the time to help me- very appreciated.

Happy house has 24 hour concierge, laundry facilities, internet, and breakfast every morning.

My only suggestion is a cork screw for wine!! I had to use a knife one night and another night had my wine opened at the store- lol!

Also make sure you lock your door! A French high school group came to stay and at least 3 of them opened my door, said sorry and closed it again- too funny!

I hope to be back next summer to ski in Chile and I will definitely stay at the Happy House hostel.

Room tip: I stayed in two private rooms - both lovely.

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!
