We stayed at Hostal Providencia 3 nights before our flight back home and were sad that we couldn't stay longer! The hostal has everything you're looking for: the best location (everything important is nearby in walking distance), nice and helpful staff, the option to book trips (we made a vineyard tour and were very happy with our choice!) and good...

We were super pleased with the accommodation of late night check-in, unfortunately missed breakfast both mornings getting adjusted to the time change. Everything thing was clean and well maintained, the common areas were nice but often crowded. Over all a quiet and comfortable stay

Great location, close to most of the main attraction in Santiago. The staff are very helpful and friendly. I met interesting people from different countries. I fimd it a bit pricey for a hostel. But the overall experience was a good one.

A nice hostel in good location for sightseeing (not it the historic centre, but nevermind). Clean rooms, but it was cold in one of the two we booked. We were provided with a heater, but it was still cold. Water in the shower wasn't hot all the time. Breakfast is great for a hostel. Overall, a nice place for a...

All you need from a hostel: clean, well equiped kitchens, spacious common areas, nice and friendly staff, big rooms and lockers, a lot of bathrooms and toilets which are very clean, very good breakfast with boiled eggs and fresh fruits every day. The hostel is quite big but you have more than 2 kitchens and a lot of bathrooms which...

This place is a little far from the historic center, maybe around 20 minutes walking. But it's right next to Bellavista and Providencia so there's that. The hostel is massive. Lot's of kitchen space, lots of common rooms to hang out in. The rooms themselves are decently sized, good sized beds, large lockers and strong wifi throughout. The only problems...

“Ask for a room on the fourth floor, it's quiet and backs on to a circle with very little traffic. I think we may have been the only room up there”
