Staff members are friendly and helpful. There is a bar on the property which occasionally gives out free pisco sour. The room is not spacious, and there aren't a lot of amenities, but it is what you'd expect from a hostel. The location is good, being close to a Metro station and several dining options. Overall the experience is pleasant.

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.

Short stay in Santiago
A friend and I stayed at Hostal Providencia for 4 nights as part of a trip around south America and I can thoroughly recommend it. It is a lively hostel around 15mins walk from some of the key tourist spots in Santiago through perfectly safe areas. There is a very good free buffet breakfast and usually something going on in the bar area in the evenings, though we were taking drinks out to the quieter garden/yard area. You're not allowed to bring your own drinks in, but the prices in the bar are very reasonable (6000 Pesos for a bottle of wine, I think). The reception staff are very helpful and can book taxis (agreed rates for things like airport transfers), suggest places to visit and during the day a rep is available to book tours, excursions etc. with a number of tour operators. My friend and I shared a private twin room with a shared bathroom at the end of the hall. The bedroom was fine, plenty of space and quiet at night (I'm not sure how noise didn't travel up from the bar, but it didn't) and there was always at least one bathroom free when we needed them. If/when I ever come back to Santiago I would happily stay here again.
