I was very happy with Hostal Providencia. The vibe was good despite not being a party hostel and it was great to be able to fry eggs and have fresh fruit and bread for breakfast. Activities to do in Santiago were easily visible and the staff were very helpful. The room lockers were also sizeable. Very important is the easy... More

Lovely staff, big and comfortable beds and a lot of activities to do. The bar is a big plus and the WiFi works great everywhere. You can make free calls to several south american countries for free, which is a great deal if you have to book or get information about your next adventures ;)

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!... More

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! More
