I really recommend this hostel. I stayed 8 nights and it was a great experience. My room was really spacious. The shared bathroom are clean. The breakfast is really good (eggs, ham, cereals, juice, bread, coffee, tea...). There is a kitchen and many common space where you can just relax. And the staff is so nice and helpful! And the...

Great place, great location and the staff is very nice. Stayed there for a week, would certainly return when back in Santiago ! The Brasil area is nice and relaxed, lots of cafés on Brasil Avenue just a few blocks away. Also the airport bus is 3 blocks away, which is very handy.

I stayed at the Happy Heart Hostel for two nights. The single rooms were very comfortable, showers were great, and the breakfast was pretty good (they actually serve real coffee!). The staff were all very friendly and helpful. They all spoke very good English as well. I would definitely recommend this place to friends.

Stayed at this hostal for 2 days. We booked a matrimonial room (double) with a private bathroom. We were on a budget but not that strict so payed about $45 US each night. The room was enormous with huge bathroom and wet room. The bed was big and comfortable. The hostel itself was set in a beautiful building with, lounging... More

The receptionists were really lovely, helped us where they could. The location is lovely, in a calm street in Barrio Brasil. The hostel is lovely, an old building with swimming pool and nice terrace. Only thing that is not that good: there's only one fridge, no system for it, so it became a stinky, dirty one with no place for... More

I spent 2 nights as a solo traveler. Staff was helpfull and friendly, I booked a single room and since none were available (a big group on what looked like a college trip was occupying most of the place), I got a six bed room all to myself. Shared bathroom are clean, so are the kitchen and the nice outside... More

Stayed here for three nights in February 2013. The hostel was central, clean, silent and beautiful, with balcony, pool, big salons. The kitchen on second floor was not that clean, but this depends on the people staying there, I think. I stayed in a dorm for 6 people - a very big room, enough space and lockers. I recommend you...

Nice atmosphere and with all you might expect for a budget hostel. Rooms (private) are spacious, shared bathrooms basic but clean. Breakfast was basic, but enought to get you started in the morning (skip the coffee). They have a bar open in the evenings, and food can be brought in from nearby restaurants. Some problems with internet access were solved... More

We spent two nights at the hostel. First impressions and night were very good indeed: beautiful hostel, good outdoor space, big double room, helpful staff. We were really pleased we stayed here. The second night was a different story. Even accounting for the fact that it was a Friday night, we were kept awake between 23.00 and 03.30 by shouting,... More
