Hostal Providencia: a home away from home for travelers and backpackers in Santiago de Chile! With the perfect location, varied breakfast, comfy beds, spacious and decorated common areas, a cozy bar and an efficient staff, Hostal Providencia guarantees you a pleasant and fun experience with the best price-quality of the city. We are located in the heart of Santiago, just 5 minute-walk from Plaza Italia, Baquedano metro station and the neighborhood of Bellavista, where you will find the best nightlife with many pubs, bars and restaurants. Hostal Providencia stands out for its capacity and big variety of rooms. We have shared dorms (new ones have USB and own light points) and privates single, double, triple and family (4, 5 and 6 people), all with private or shared bathroom option. You can also choose the standard economic type -a large heritage house- or superior - more like a hotel with 32 "plasma TV and central heating. Another great attraction is our unforgettable activities: nights of "terremotos" (typical Chilean drink), pisco sour, pasta and wine, hamburgers, fajitas, choripan, hot dogs, risotto, wine tasting and much more!

This hostel met my expectations with all of the items I look for in a Hostel. The front desk staff was eager to help. They monitor the front door avidly for security. There is a tour desk that can give you information and book over 20 tours. I did have to wait until 2:00 to

I stayed three nights at this hostel last October during a trip to Santiago. This is probably one of the largest hostels I had ever been to, but due to the size of it, it often very crowded with backpackers and large groups, which means that you need to wait for your turn to

Hi, you can but it's complicated. You can find detailed info online, just search for "public transportation from the airport to Santiago center". However, your own variables will tip the balance between public versus taxi. How many people in the party? How much luggage? What time of the day do you arrive? Public will consist in bus, metro, plus walk a few blocks from the metro station. I suggest using Uber, it's much less than regular taxi. We, party of two, with heavy backpacks, arrived at 11pm and the Uber ride was 12,000 pesos (just under $20). However on the way to the airport the demand was higher, around 5pm, and we paid 17,000 pesos (under $30). Good luck!

"Upstairs dorms are probably quieter but hotter."
"We had a private room with a shared bathroom on the second floor."
"The rooms on the first floor have a very nice hallway."
"Choose a room away from the street, bring warm clothes (heaters dont work well), breakfast included but limited, shared bathrooms"
"Room 39 was at the end of a hall and very close to the bathroom. We liked this location!"
$13 - $63 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
