Right in the centre of the village, very clean , excellent welcome.Very good atmosphere.nice common areas. We had a ( very small) room with private bathroom .Solar lighting works at night, and we had no hot water in the evening .Could not understand the reason why there was hot water in the common bathrooms and not in our bathroom !!!

A bit overpriced (quite overpriced for those arriving from Bolivia!), but this is a good choice. Room was clean, pretty, and had a huge bed. Bathrooms are spotless. Wifi only works in the common area, but is fast. Pro: There are kittens! One of their cats had five kittens and they're adorable. Con: The rooms have solar lighting that only...

We really enjoyed our stay here. The hostel is very clean, with nice rooms and cool common areas with free wifi. Location is great, the main street is around the corner and there are two grocery stores next door. Staff is really nice and helpful. All travelers from Slovenia also get 10% discount since the owner is from Slovenia.

I enjoyed my stay here. Facilities were very well catered to the traveller with plenty of power points, very clean toilets and showers, and small lockable dormitories. The staff were friendly and it was set in a nice atmosphere. A small con is that wifi is only available in the courtyard.

We really enjoyed during our stay in this hostel. It has a great vibe, it is clean, sunny and it offers you everything you need as a backpacker:)! The rooms were warm and so was the water under shower. You can also use the kitchen and there is free wifi.

This is by far the best hostel I've stayed in Chile. We were there for 5 nights. It is super clean, good rooms, nice common areas and it's so close to the main street. The downside is there is no breakfast and wifi is only in common areas. But the staff and the cleanliness of the hostel make up for...

Well located in San Pedro downtown, near all the restaurants and travel agencies. The private individual room was small but enough to for what I needed, and it was comfortable. Warm water in common bathroom was insufficient though. Wifi works only in common areas.

The hostel is located in a central location, ideal for the shops and restaurants of San Pedro de Atacama. Whilst relatively basic, the rooms are pleasant and clean and the common areas and kitchen benefit from wifi. All in all this is a very reasonably priced hostel for the area.

Nice hostal, relaxed vibe, hot and clean showers. We stayed 2 nights in a four bed dorm (3 of us) and really enjoyed our stay particularly in contrast to some other places we saw whilst here! Recommend.

“The wi-fi works better in the common area, around outside the kitchen. On the other side it is not as strong. So getting a room closer to the former could be a good idea.”
