Fabulous 8.8 From 105 reviews

Very good 8.0
Clean and comfortable
We stayed in a twin room at Hostal Providencia for 1 night in October. The customer service was excellent - we were given a full introduction and tour of the hostel when we arrived. Apparently it is the largest hostel in Chile and the second largest in South America! As we were only stopping over for 1 night prior to leaving Chile, we were just wanting a good night's sleep. Due to its size, we were a little concerned that it would be noisy, however we both slept very well and enjoyed the complimentary breakfast the next morning - bread, fruit, cereal, tea/coffee and eggs. Overall, it was a lovely hostel and I would definitely stay again if I returned to Santiago

Nice hostel
Nice place, cute decor. The first time we stayed, we had a room to the side of the building courtyard and it was very quiet. This time, we had a room directly over the courtyard and the music from the bar was very loud.

Travellers freindly hostel
This place is one of the best. They manage the hostel in a customer-center way. Staff are friendly and helpful. They even have a staff to organize local tours. Breakfast is wonderful, with lots of different fruits to choose. Kitchen is well equiped for self catering. Dorm rooms are spacious and ventilation is enough even when the room is full. Every bed is equipped with socket and light which is good for charging gadgets.
