The best way to setup a staging site?

Whats the best way to setup a staging site on WordPress? Should we go for the plugin or ask our hosting provider for one?

Ideally a managed WordPress host would have support for this already. Besides that, there’s not really a “best way” …just set up a new site on the same hosting account with all the same environmental settings, copy the site files and database (can use a migration plugin to help with this, even if it may not be marketed as a “staging” plugin) and do whatever you need to do.
