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.

location is good being a short walk from a metro station and the main nightlife area, in fact the main areas of santiago can be reached by foot from here. the hostel staff were great, there was always a clean bathroom free, the room was spacious enough. entrance/exit from the hostel seemed secure. there is a nice chillout area to have drinks in during the evening.they also provide tours, the one I did was reasonably priced and in a small group so felt like good value for money.

A good location near to the metro and attractions, the breakfast was good and rooms clean. If a hostel is what you are looking for then this is fine. We stayed in a private room so cannot comment on shared accommodation conditions.

I stayed at Hostal Providencia after examining MANY different options in just a few weeks ago. I checked in late, and after emailing the hostal a few times to tell them about this, I found using their "whats app" the best option. The check in was easy, and the place was actually rather quiet during this time (1 am...always a curiosity when staying at a hostal). The place is gigantic, which is super helpful when trying to organize those who want to sleep from those who do not. I stayed in a private room which was lovely, with a bathroom across. My only challenge was that there was a part of the floor missing outside my room. The staff did put a rug over it later on to accommodate those who might trip. Breakfast had cereal, some fruit, coffee, juice, and bread. The location was prime, and it really couldn't be beat. I was about 5 minutes from a subway, and central for all my walking excursions. All in all I was actually quite pleased for my first "hostal" experience. Totally worth it.

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.
