Good location, honest price, well organized. Everyone speaks English, cordial attendance, good tips for city tours or any other kind of visit you plan to do in Santiago. Great location, near the metrostation, secure neighborhood.

The place is really nice, with a good location, nice people, good breakfast and really comfortable common areas. But don't go there in winter, the old house (almost a palacete, as we said) doesen't have heating at all! I have to sleep in my clothes to be worm.

In some ways, one of the nicest hostels i've stayed at. The outdoor area and pool is lovely, especially in the evening when it is all lit up. The dorm room was nice and spacious. However, even though check in time was quite late (3pm) my bed still wasn't ready and they didn't even let me put my bag in...

We stayed one night at Happy House Hostel in a twin bedroom with shared bathroom. We enjoyed the warm, relaxed atmosphere in this beautifully decorated old house. Plenty of community space available for relaxing, reading, eating. The best was the patio with a pool - perfect on a hot summer's day. Our room was clean, pretty, with wooden floors, towels...

Nice big spacious dorm rooms. Comfortable beds. Fairly noisy at night as is an old building so thin walls and squeaky floorboards and doors. Great location just a 5 minute walk from Los Heros metro station so easy access to the airport, bus terminal and neighbourhood of Bellavista. Would stay again!

Dear Meg, We really appreciate the time you have taken to write your review, however and according to your comments, we think it´s a little bit unfair to be ranked with only 3 of 5 points.

The Happy House Hostel is very convenient just a 15 minute walk away from the city centre. It's a very charming old town house with lovely furniture and decorations. You can definitely see that the owners love what they are doing. They even have a pool and kind of a lounge area in their back yard. Considering that this is...

The Happy House Hotel was excellent for experiencing near-downtown Santiago without paying too much. It is superior to most other hostels I have seen because it had a variety of room types. Ground floor is separate rooms with ensuite bathrooms, but upstairs was more typical hostel accomodation. It was simple but clean, comfortable and well maintained with helpful staff available...

When I received an email from Aerolíneas Argentinas, in Spanish, the staff helped by phoning the airline to find out if I was actually booked on the changed flights and showed me how to get a free transfer between the airports in Buenos Aires.

A fantastic and very affordable option to stay in while in Santiago, Chile. Close to the historic centre of the city. Friendly staff and great guests you can chat with. The rooms are appropriately appointed for the cost. I can't wait to get back.
