This hostel is great for a large range of travellers. There are different kind of rooms( budget to fancy what ever you need). You may even park your car-there's enough place for 3 jeeps-saw that). There's a clean well equiped kitchen(we prepared breakfast there) and a big yard with tables, where you can sit and relax. As for the rooms,... More

I stayed here as part of a G-Adventures group and was really impressed. The room we had was great - the beds were incredibly comfortable and warm and the bathroom was very nice as well. The wifi was a bit patchy, but you can go to any restaurant around and get better connection. There is no breakfast but a pretty... More

This hotel is well located, the rooms are very small, there is only wifi beside reception or in the bedroom beside reception. It can be noisy due to large group bookings, there are self catering facilities.

We stayed in Hostal Puritama together with a G Adventures group in January 2016. There unfortunately we had the worst experience while travelling in South America. While we were having drinks in the patio we left our belongings in our locked room (one of the little huts). When we came back to our room at around midnight everything seemed normal... More

The hostal is located right on the main strip in SP Atacama. There is a nice courtyard that you can sit in and they have a kitchen. The rooms are small and basic but have everything you need. The wifi is decent at times - hit and miss. The showers are sometimes cold and sometimes hot. The hotel caters to... More

This hostel is on the main street in San Pedro de Atacama and is within easy walking distance of all the great restaurants and shops in the town.

This is a good place with a unique character. The whole town has a funky bohemian backpacking sort of style. The beds were comfortable and there was plenty of bedding. Although my bunk bed did tend to creak and shake. There is good hot water but showers are limited to 5 minutes due to the need to preserve water in... More

This place offers several accommodations, from rustic to basic. Be sure to discuss with the staff (helpful in my case) where are you being sent. Again, they have from no-bathroom, to wood cabins, to brick cabins. Well located. Clean. Friendly.
