We have chosen Newen Kara Hostel for some 4 visits but this visit had a major flaw which has to be corrected for us to return. Given the Hostel has so much that is positive (location,cleanness, security,helpful staff,etc.) we do hope they make the necessary change that either designates the Hostel as a non smoking *building* OR sets aside a...

If you are looking for a quiet and homely hostel, this is your place. It is located in the beautiful suburb of Providencia, an upscale neighbourhood, with a great cafe/restaurant vibe at night, and metro Manuel Montt super close. I had a twin share room to myself, the room however did look out onto the common area, so during the...

Very well located. Clean. Family environment. Pick the orange room. Breakfast is simple but sufficient. Located in Providence and close to many restaurants. Very good for couple travel. There is a kitchen and a backyard for use. Enjoy Santiago.

We booked a double room ensuite for one night in July, and for our surprised (as the hostel was with such great ratings) the room was terrible. Very old, and unbelievable small - it was impossible to open the suitcase in the room unless you putted on the bad, and with that you wouldnt have anywhere else to seat. Two...

Dear Mariana, I'm terribly ashamed about your failed experience. the cheap price you have payed is for a stardard room, there are other superior ensuites rooms much better and bigger for a little higher price. all the information about feature rooms, is on the web site or platforms like booking, hostelworld, hostels.com, expedia, etc. we will absolutely consider your critic....

We enjoyed a few nights at Newen Kara. It is a really good hostel and good value too. We had two different bedrooms during out stay, one to the front and one the rear. Both were large with en-suite shower rooms which were invariably clean and well presented. While in a quiet location the hostel is near a main road...

Stayed in Newen Kara for 8 nights, and loved it as soon as I walked in; probably because its a house converted into a hostel. Very clean, the rooms are cleaned each day, very friendly staff, beautiful wooden interior. I would definitely return and recommend it to anyone who is visiting Santiago for the first time.

I just stayed one night. This hostel is very well located, near subway station and great neighborhood. Good breakfast and friendly night-shift staff. The only bad point was my room - too small for a double room, specially the bathroom.

Located in a safe, clean and urban area of providencia, this hostel is on a quiet street.
