Stayed for one night at Hostal Providencia. Loved the funky design and decor and appreciated the warm, friendly welcome. Rooms were very basic, but clean and comfortable. Same for the bathrooms. Breakfast was just enough to get you going in the mornings and there was a great vibe around the bar in the evening (although I did not partake). Felt...

We really enjoyed our stay of 5 nights here. Good location to city centre, nightlife and metro. Very good breakfast with eggs (boiled or raw so you can cook yourself). Only negative is there is only one kitchen and for a very big hostel with a lot of guests this just isn't enough. Between 6-9 pm it is very hard...

The hostel has a really nice atmosphere, the room is comfortable and clean,and the common area is also great. There are three kitchens so there is no problem if two or more people wants to cook at the same time. The hostel location is very good.

I stayed 3 days in Hostal Providencia. I was not really caring about the place, as long as it had a good localization. Hostel Providencia has a competitive price, the bedrooms are OK, internet is good, it´s a big house, you can take a hot bath (extremely important), and they have good tours to offer to the guests. I might...

This hostel is conveniently located (walking distance to the metro station and Bellavista). It's a big hostel, with really good breakfast, clean rooms and bathrooms. The bar is ok and they have several social rooms for you to just hang around. Great option for staying in santiago.
