A really nice place to stay in the center of Santiago de Chile. It was a really magical place with confortable rooms and the most important thing, with good vibes and nice people. All the staff was super friendly!!

I liked this hostel. It's in a good location, easily accessible to the bus station and airport, has a nice bar and one of the best breakfasts around! I appreciated vending machines and different foods each night. What could be improved is the staff - who didn't show me to my room, and one of them decided to get into...

Hi, i stayed in the Hostal Providencia in november at the start of my trip. Really really good, extra localisation, great services, à lot of people but you don t feel it and really calm.

The place was really nice. It is well located (just 5 minutes walk to neighborhood full of restaurants and bar). The staff was fantastic and they organized a lot of fun activities (especially during the evening) for guests.

I stayed here for 3 nights, there's loads and loads of info all over the reception area and the staff are very helpful too. The location is good, near to Bella Vista and about 5-10 min walk to the Funicular, where you can go up the hill for amazing views of the city and Andes mountains. The room was clean...

Hi, and thanks for your review! We're especially glad you appreciated the breakfast! We know it's important so work hard to put on a good one! We put on the meals and activities every night (free cocktails twice a week!) so there'll be more going on here if you're back in Santiago! Saludos de Hostal Providencia.

I don´t like writing a bad review but I also think that people needs to know that is not safe to stay here. First of all, reception doesn´t has any control or whatsoever over the people that comes into the hostel. Strangers can even go up to the rooms, that is why a thief got into my room and stole...

Hi, First I have to say we are really sorry about your case. Your case has highlighted that we need to go further to make sure that all the guests understand the rules, because ultimately security is the responsibility of everyone. Unfortunately in this case other guests at the hostel had brought in the offender as their guest, which is...

Friendly staff, decent breakfast, clean rooms, lots going on each day and night! Great atmosphere and place to stay. Location is brilliant, close to Baquedano metro and Bellavista. Can be a little noisy at night on the lower floors though.
