What a find! This hostel is clean and basic as far as the rooms are concerned (we had a double and it was quiet) , but the gem of it is the friendly atmosphere in the shared area - the bar in the evening was more like a party - not in a raucous way, in a 'friends rather than...

I stayed at the Hostal Providencia for two nights and was a little disappointed. While there were lots of people staying there it felt crowded and chaotic instead of a place to meet others for a solo traveler. I arrived at 11pm and it took 20 minutes for someone to help me check in as I stood there with all...

Extremely friendly and helpful staff who would let us store our luggage for two weeks and allow us to have a shower (they even gave us towels!) after returning to pick it up without being checked in anymore.

We only stayed overnight as we were just passing through but this is a great area to stay in Santiago, with many cafés and tourist sites within walking distance. They had a good breakfast included (with eggs!) and the room was nice and clean. The hostel is easy to get to via the metro. Would stay again. Room slightly noisy...

Hi, RenAndMike! Thanks for your evaluation, it's very important to us. (: They are not all our rooms that have that type of drape. Actually it seems people from outside can see you, but they can't. Anyway, putting another type of curtain could make out guests feel more confortable, thanks for the tip. Hope to see you guys soon! (:
