The Happy House Hostel is a former residence, converted into 14 private hotel rooms on the ground floor, and hostel rooms on the upper floor. The interior is beautiful and the breakfast is delicious (cereal, toast, ham, huevos fritos). I stayed in one of the ground floor hotel rooms as part of a Habitat for Humanity group of 12. The...

This hostel was excellent. Likely the best breakfast in Santiago, great central location, the kitchen is huge and well stocked, but best of all there are so many wide, low slung almost 70's style couches scattered around the property which makes this place a readers paradise.

I spent just over a week at the Happy House Hostel. It is very centrally located which makes it easy to get to all the touristy places. I would stay there again if I ever go to Santiago. The staff were very friendly and helpful booking my day trip to Vine Del Mar and Valparaiso.

We stayed in a private room with shared bathroom for 3 night. Hostel is located in Barrio Brazil, within walking distance to main square (approx 10minutes). There is a supermarket, restaurants, bars etc all nearby. The building itself is incredible. Huge rooms with high ceilings and shutter windows. Really very nice. Our only complaint was that we had a room...
