Hostal providencia has been a fantastic experience for me. The hostel is huge and well-placed with a fantastic atmosphere, and is a fantastic place to spend time whether working or not. Only regret is that I couldnt spend longer.

Durante mi estadía en el hostel, me sentí como en casa, cada día fue una experiencia nueva, todo el staff siempre estuvo atento y pendiente para que mi experiencia en providencia fuera de la mejor. Me llevo a casa inolvidables momentos y grandes experiencias de muchos viajeros. Sin duda alguna es el mejor hostel de Chile y de Sudamérica. Un consejo para los viajeros que tienen sus ojos puestos en Santiago, no duden en hacer su voluntariado en Providencia, nunca lo olvidarán. Pienso que un mes es muy poco para lo mucho que aprendes de cada persona del hostel. Nos volveremos a ver. Gracias!!!!!

Bom demais :) o hostal tem uma estrutura absurda e o staff é muuuito amorzinho! Todos te recebem muito bem e tem paciência, de modo que você se sente muito confortável para tirar eventuais dúvidas e dar algumas sugestões! Recomendo demais demais! Puta experiência ♡

Experiência maravilhosa! A equipe do Hostal é demais, todos me receberam super bem e me ajudaram quando eu precisei! Fui voluntária por 1 mês, trabalhei na recepção e na cozinha. É uma ótima oportunidade para quem busca crescimento pessoal de maneira geral :) Obrigada por tudo, Hostal Providencia!

Experiencia incrivel, me senti em casa, todos que conheci que trabalham aqui, foram otimos comigo... Sobre o trabalho, muito tranquilo, trabalhei a maior parte do tempo na recepcao, nos ultimos dias trabalhei na cozinha, quando cheguei Joseph me deu toda a atencao explicando sobre o hostel, e alem de tudo fiz amigos aqui... Agradeco a todos por compartilharem experiencias e sorrisos... Gratidao... desculpa a ortografia, mas o teclado nao me ajudou muito rs
