Cómo llegar:

1. From the Bus terminal:
Take the subway (”metro“) Line 1 (red line) to the Metro Station “Baquedano”, or pick any bus on Av. Libertador Bernardo O´Higgins (everyone just calls it “Alameda“) that says Plaza Italia. As you can see in the map above we are only a few blocks away (4 minute walk) from Plaza Italia and Metro Station “Baquedano” (we recommend you print the map and these instructions in case you forget this stuff). As a reference, the address is Vicuña Mackenna 92-A (a very well known street). If you’re walking from Plaza Italia on Vicuña Mackenna street, you’ll cross the streets Arthuro Burhle, Almirante Simpson, Eulogia Sanchez, Viña del Mar till you get here. This is the cheapest way to get to our hostel.

2. From the airport:
You can pick a taxi at the Airport, the fee shouldn´t be more than US$ 25 (beware that some Chilean taxi drivers may want to rip you off charging by charging extra). You can also pick up a transfer minibus (TRANSVIP or TURBUS) for US$10 aprox at the counter in the airport.
These 2 should prove the easiest and safest ways to get here. Just tell the driver our hostel’s name, address and that it’s right next to Plaza Italia.
The cheapest option (and still a pretty safe one anyway) is to take a bus (CENTROPUERTO, which leave every 15 minutes) right from the Airport. These will leave you in Metro Station “Universidad de Santiago“. Then you do as explained in 1. (take the “metro” and so on).
