We stayed in the Hostel for 10 days while finding an apartment in Santiago. We had a comfortable private room, although no heater was a problem as it is freezing in the winter. The staff were very helpful, they went out of their way to make our stay a pleasant one. They are a fun group to be around, there...

Hostal Providencia is the perfect place for international travelers. While you explore the city in the day you are welcomed to the hostel with nice guest gatherings and events within the hostel to relax and interact with everyone else. The staff is great and very helpful. They have the right information to help you go around the country!

Good hostel for a short stay. Stayed here for a few days before our flight home to Australia (Santiago is the only gateway home). Rooms are clean and the hostel is big and easy to chat to people. Staff are really friendly and helpful when trying to navigate around the city. Good tours to nightclubs too-had some really good nights!...

Hello, ezofoz! We appologize for the incovenient. Actually the big main house where was located your room is historical heritage, so we are not allowed to make major changes. Still we are trying to somehow improve the insulation to prevent this type of issue. Thank you very much for your comment! (: Kind regards!

I only stayed here a few nights, either side of a trip to Easter Island, but I did enjoy my time there despite it feeling a little quiet. The hostel is huge and sprawling across a few different building areas, maybe that’s why it can feel a little empty at times, but I still managed to make a few friends...
