Loved this place, great atmosphere, great staff, looking forward to returning in a couple of weeks!


Cleaners appeared to be working non stop


Great guys running the place, great location and atmosphere.


This hostel was safe, secure and provided good opportunities to meet new people. The staff were friendly and the location was pretty central :)


The hostel is great! Staff is friendly and the facilities clean and new. The atmosphere is very nice, but do expect a lot of people there as it is a big place. There is enough space for everyone though in the community areas. Internet is super fast!!! One downside when you arrive really early in the morning is that you might have to wait a while until the night shift opens the door as they might not hear the bell - that is what happened to me and some other people I talked to. So prepare them.


Impossible not to have a great time. Staff were great and always promote a good time to guests. This is a very well kept hostel. I highly recommend it.


Great hostel. Nice atmosphere, great staff, good breakfast, nightly activities and drinks but doesn't stay loud late at night. Lots of lovely common areas. Free use of skype phone! Excellent location near Bellavista and Lastarria for going out and close to metro. Longterm luggage storage for my bag of souvenoirs. I'll definitely go back.


Providential had a great atmosphere, we loved the massive timetable at reception with all the daily, free and night time activities that you could do. They really encouraged people to be social with lots of themed nights, mostly centred around food and drink, nom nom! 😄 free towels, great wifi, eggs for breakfast and comfortable rooms with large lockers, I'd definitely recommend this hostel!


Amazing hostal. Great location and impeccably clean. Really awesome environment with awesome energy. Incredible value for the money,

Greatest staff ever, awesome facilites and servicies, wifi works perfectly in every corner of this HUGE place and there are plans for every day and night. One of the best hostels where I've stayed


Overall good except: Twin room was tiny with bunk beds. Front door was annoying had to ask reception to buzz it open to leave. Staff helpful in general but one tried to rip us off. We got them to book us a taxi to the airport for the advertised rate & when we came to check if it had arrived the person on reception quoted 2000pesos more. Kitchen was average but dining room doubled as bar & around 7PM the bar started playing incredible loud (& awful) music making it unusable as a dining room


lovely hostel, staff very helpful with any requests we had. free breakfast which includes option to make your own eggs. daily activities board although non suited us we did get reception to book us another day trip.


We had a booking problem and they did all they could to help and fix the problem as soon as possible. The staff were amazing and helpful and great to talk to. The hostel its self was grand with a great homley feel about it. We couldnt have been happier with Hotal Provindencia and the location was close to everthing. Do your self a favour, spend some time here and explore Santiago!!!


nice Hostel for a few days in Santiago. good breakfast. showers could be better and there should be more bathrooms available! skiing trip is too expansive
