Dear Kathy, Thanks a lot for your great evaluation, comments and also suggestions. As you were part of a big group, sometimes it´s difficult to fill everone´s expectations, especially if 40 people decide to use the guests kitchen at the same time (or being loud), however, we´ll keep un eye on it in order to always have all the neccesary...

This was an ideal location. It is very convenient for bus, metro and links to airport. It is quite close to the city centre and all the things a tripper would want to see. It's clean, the staff are friendly and helpful and the breakfast is very good. Overall, it's excellent value. Would definitely recommend and would chose when I...

Happy House Hostel was definitely the nicest hostel we stayed at during our Chile/Argentina travels. Common areas were charming - spacious, with high ceilings. Rooms (we had a double with private, attached bathroom) also spacious and very clean. Included breakfast was great value. Desk staff wonderful - friendly and informative. Locked luggage room if you need to remain in the...

Clean and spacious rooms. Staff were very helpful. Hostel is only a short walk from grocery stores, restaurants and bus and subway. Bus to airport was especially useful as it was close and convenient. We would definitely stay there again.

This hostel provides decent value for money with very friendly and helpful English-speaking staff, common areas that are inviting to spend time, and clean & comfortable rooms. This is a beautiful old building with wooden floors, stairs and walls - which means you can hear everything going on in the hallways, neighboring rooms and even downstairs. People staying up late...

Happy House is a retreat! Great staff, great facilities in a quiet residential neighborhood. I'm coming back the next time I'm in Santiago. This old mansion with high ceilings and a beautiful back patio couldn't be better!

STGO is a busy, loud city. Happy House is the perfect haven away from it all. A bit pricey, but worth every penny. Great breakfast, comfy beds, big lockers, great pool, and ample sunshine. Would go back in a heartbeat.
