Location and Contact


• At the metro(subway station) take Line 1 (red line) to Baquedano metro station, or pick any bus on Alameda (Av. Libertador Bernardo O'Higgins) that says Plaza Italia.
• We are only a couple of blocks away from Plaza Italia/Baquedano metro station. This is the cheapest way to get to our hostel.
• Street references are Merced/Estados unidos or Merced with Irene Morales. Coronel Santiago Bueras is the street parallel to Merced in Between Irene Morales and Estados Unidos.
• You can also pick up a taxi at the airport, the fee shouldn't be more than US$30, or you can also pick up a transfer for US$15 aprox. If you want us to book you a pick up transfer at the airport write us email after you have done the reservation. This way will be more efficient and cheap. The taxi/transfer driver should leave you at our door. Santiago is a safe city but like any other big city keep in mind the current exchange rates so you wont get fooled by taxi drivers.
