Lot of services for free : coffee, tea, international phone, towels, Wi-Fi, huge breakfast, TV, computer.... We strongly recommend this hotel to stay in Santiago. In addition, the hotel is very well... More

I have been staying in Hostal Providencia for just shy of a month now and I absolutely love it. The whole staff is incredibly warm and welcoming and will go out off their way to accommodate you and make you feel welcome. My Spanish is ok at best but the staff here is international. They speak a multitude of languages... More

Let me start by saying, I'm an incredibly fussy woman. Oh no, you can stop thinking "yeah, I live with one of them!" I'm worse!! For realsies!! Shall we get the boring bits out the way...? - They offer airport transfers but we managed to haggle on slightly cheaper from the airport for 14,000 pesos - book well in advance... More

This is by a long shot the best hostel my friend and I have stayed in since we started travelling 3 months ago. The staff are upbeat, friendly and extremely informative. I only wish I could remember their names to give them personal mention, as they were that good to us. I{m going to give a slight description though. The... More

The location is great for anything you need in Santiago, it's a short walk to the nightlife and restaurant areas, and the metro station is right around the corner for further distances. The staff was super friendly, rooms are a decent size, everything is clean. I stayed twice, once in a private room and once in a shared room, both... More

The staff at hostel providencia were welcoming. The day we arrived they had been fumigating so we could not get into our room straight away but they let us strike out big bags and pointed us in the right direction to get some food. They gave advise on things to do. The private room we had was a good size... More

Great location close to the centre of town and only a short walk across the river to plenty of restaurants/nightlife or to the metro to explore further out . Very friendly and welcoming staff who were more than happy to help out with any requests or recommendations. The private room was small, but good, whilst the shared bathrooms were good... More
