Had to leave a review! Love love love how comfortable the beds are in the dorms! and the location is prime. Breakfast was well organized, staff was helpful, bathrooms were clean and well stocked and I felt fairly safe walking around and going for a run in the park

Lovely hostel. Very well organized, great atmosphere. Room was clean and bright, beds made each morning. Breakfast includes eggs! Bar is fun and always lots of people hanging around. Hostel provides many activities and has a tour info desk on site. Bathrooms were clean and showers are great! Definitely would recommend. Curfew is 12:30 so you can have a good sleep


Really good hostel in the centre of Santiago, and a short walk from the "cool" areas. Great facilities all round, and would only really knock them on quality of wifi. Fun activities every night, and comfy beds. Would stay there again.


Great people, great location near the subway and pretty part of town. Excellent wifi, clean rooms and hot showers. Came for two days and stayed nine.

Very well located, near subway station, parks, restaurants, markets. The staff was very nice and helpful. It is not very silent at night, because they have a bar inside the hostel, but for people that sleep late or not bother with that, it is OK.


Great location, good breakfast and spacious room. However when we arrived at 2.30pm there was a huge backlog and considering this was after the time to check in I thought the hostel should have been able to facilitate multiple check ins. We waited 20 mins to check in and then another 1.5 hours before our room was ready. One guy on reception is really helpful (English guy), the others not so much. Bathroom mat in our private ensuite was disgusting, would advise changing type of mat.


Nice hostel, big, reasonably clean & plenty of activities offered. Great breakfast including eggs and fruit. Free Pisco sours on Thursday nights are awesome. Only negative is that you need to ensure you put all your belongings in the lockers as it is commonly known that the rooms are 'cleaned' too well.


This is a massive hostel, so if you want peace and quiet it's not the best. There is a small kitchen that gets really crowded if you want to cook. As soon as we stepped into our dorm ankh we girl staying there told us she had had money stolen from her suitcase. There were loads of drunk people shouting outside our room very late.


Brilliant hostel with clean rooms, a nice breakfast and the added bonus of being able to wash your own clothes. Really liked the style of the hostel and the staff were friendly and helpful. Have a travel agency in the hostel for trips around Santiago.


The English guy in the reception was very friendly and helpful. Good breakfast including eggs. Safe area with the metro 3-4 blocks away.


Good hostel, good breakfast, nice and helpful staff, can defenitly recomend this hostel.

Thank you! Great to hear you had a good time! Happy travels and we hope to see you again! Hostal Providencia.


We stayed here for one night in a private room. The room was comfortable with tv. Great location very central. Staff we friendly and helpful, explained things to do and where to go and also arranged taxi to airport. Good breakfast included (eggs, bread, fruit, tea/coffee/juice). Overall really good value.


rooms and beds were ok, showers with hot water, maybe a little less showers for all the people. stuff was friendly, could speak english and helps u. breakfast was good. they have a own bar, value for price there and good to meet people. location is good, 5min to the next metro, 10-15min to street bella vista where are a lots of pubs, bars and clubs.good hostel to stay in!


All round a good hostel! Nothing to complain about. Helpful staff and clean comfy beds. Nice bathrooms too!


We had a great stay at Hostal Providencia. Staff were very nice and helpful. They had something planned each night for guests to participate in, like food and/or drinks. Guests from all over seemed very happy and comfortable. Recommended 100% :)


I stayed there twice and enjoyed both stays. the room was very spacious as was the ensuite bathroom and both were also very clean. Every person had their own locker. The breakfast is good and the bar is a nice place to meet new people. Would stay there again!


Excellent hostel. Staff is great and rooms are very clean. Strong wifi signal throughout. Only three blocks from Metro and five from the bars. Great atmosphere since you can chill in the bar area or plenty of places to hang out away from the noise. Only negative I can say is if it is busy bathrooms maybe tough to come by. Forgot one thing great breakfast with eggs!!


Great atmosphere, facilities, location and cost-benefit value. I'll definitely recommend!
