We were welcomed by caring staff who went out of their way to make us feel welcome. It is a well located hostel with lots of space to either chat with other travellers or have your own space. Breakfast is provided & better than the average hostel. My only gripe is that room 1 is located right between reception &...

Stayed here for two nights and absolutely loved it. Very friendly English speaking staff and only a short walk to the metro (subway station) and main shops.

Great location, close to the neighborhood Bellavista. This hostel looks first quite small but is big! As there are a lot if small common areas, it feels small. Great breakfast and the staff was welcoming. However they didn't have a good control of who is staying in the big dorm we stayed, but the problem was quick and friendly resolved.

Hi and thanks for your review! I'm so glad you enjoyed the hostel! It really sounds like you made the most out of your stay! Paying up front is unfortunately necessary in such a big hostel, it is more an organisation issue than about trust. Hope to see you again in Santiago one day!

Hello, Marco! Thanks for your evaluation. About the heating, we use an automatic system that turns on when the temperature is under 16 degrees. However, if people feel cold, we can give them how much blankets they need for warmth; also you can rent a electric heater at low daily price. Now explaining the credit card charge before your arrival:...

I travelled alone and had a great time at the hostel! They have night activities, but if you want to sleep, you find no trouble too! The decoration is great. The bathrooms are clean. It´s close to the subway and downtown. The staff is super helpful. I just loved and for sure recommend the Hostel Providence.
