Address:  Maria Luisa Santander 0329 

Neighborhood: Providencia

Closest metro (subway) station: Baquedano (known as line 1 or the red line) 

Important Note: NEVER take your eyes off your bags in areas of heavy transit and tourism like the Bus Station and Plaza de Armas - all the thieves need are two seconds.  This year ´s popular method is someone spraying you with a stinky liquid - while one person distracts you by helping you clean, they´re buddy quickly snatches your bag.  Just keep walking and hold tight to your bags!   Also, we recommend UBER to avoid taxi scams.  You can pay UBER drivers in cash as well.   

FROM THE BUS TERMINAL: 

Take the nearest metro (subway) line to metro Baquedano.  Once exiting the metro train, it is only a 10-15 minute walk or a 1.000 CLP taxi ride to the hostel.  Check our relation to metro Baquedano on the map below. 

 FROM THE AIRPORT: 

1.  When you leave the airport terminal, you will be surrounded by aggressive taxi drivers.  Choose one and tell him the address and general area, Maria Luisa Santander 0329.  In the neighborhood of Providencia by Parque Bustamante.  Agree on a price, nothing more than 18,000 Chilean pesos.  If they want to charge more, look for another driver.  30-40 MINUTE TRIP

2.  There is a simple airport bus.  When you leave the terminal, escape the taxi drivers and look for a light blue bus with the word "centropuerto" on the side.  Here is a link http://www.centropuerto.cl/.  This bus departs every 15 minutes and will charge around 1,500 Chilean Pesos to take you to metro Los Heroes.  From there you can take the metro to Baquedano which is a 15 minute walk or short taxi ride from the hostel.  1 HOUR TRIP

ALWAYS LET US KNOW YOUR ARRIVAL TIME AND FLIGHT NUMBER, EVEN IF YOU ARE NOT EXACTLY SURE.  IT´S MUCH APPRECIATED!
