Happy House was accommodating from the very beginning when we tried to book a room. They were extremely helpful with arranging our stay and even got us a separate room for our children. They took a special interest in our family and we truly appreciated the help. The hostel is in a large, historic building with eclectically painted walls. There... More

I stayed here in late September 2014. The building is beautiful, and the location excellent with a main metro station within two blocks and some great restaurants/bars 2-3 blocks away on Ave Brazil. It's very easy to get to from the airport, via the bus to Los Heroes then a non-scary 4 block walk (even in the dead of night,... More

Amazing old building that they have done up in a funky creative way. Nice outdoor pool area and other bar/social areas although when I was there in October it was pretty quiet. My room way fine near the main hall way but my parents room upstairs was by the street and extremely noisy. Other than that everything was great, and... More

Had one night booked here by the overland company we travelled with up to Santiago, but after reading rave reviews, decided to book another two nights at our own expense... it was a great decision! Rooms are huge, good value at $67/night for two with private bathroom and large breakfast included. Didn't see the dorm rooms, but the kitchen was... More

Had a good time. Was happy with the service and breakfast eggs excellent. Good WiFi and helpful staff. Wooden floors creaked but not a huge issue. Kitchen facilities were great and BBQ option well used

This place really lives up to its name. The staff are welcoming and accommodating. We spent several short stays here while we were sorting out replacement passports in Santiago. We were able to leave bags while we went on short trips around Chile. The rooms are beautiful with lovely furniture and they wouldn't be out of place in a boutique... More

Happy House is a giant converted townhouse, think massive high ceilings and classic features. The age also means it's a little run down, but they were doing lots of work painting etc. the rooms have a tendency to be a bit cold at night. Positives include a wicked breakfast with eggs, a good central location, and a pool/outdoor area.
