Happy house is a clean, quiet hostel just round the corner from barrio Brasil so away from the main tourist area. Rooms are a little old, but comfy and staff are friendly and accommodating. There's plenty to to with a rub room, pool table, table tennis, swimming pools etc.

Great building. Secure. Few blocks from metro station. Supermarket a few blocks away. Well equipped kitchen. Lots of communal spaces. Great breakfast - eggs, cereal, yoghurt, bread, fruit, juice, tea/coffee. Friendly staff. Spacious dorm rooms. Big bunk beds and lockers. But very squeaky floorboards - take ear plugs. Stayed for a week and the bedroom floor did not look like...

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.

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...

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...
