Hostal Rural has been one of the best places I have stayed in on my travels. Comfy beds, wifi, great music played throughout the day that you can just chill out to, hot showers available 24/7 (still amazes me this is available in the desert!) and is very funky and cute with cool mosaics and ornaments in every available space...

I have been traveling for years and this hostel was something special. Hot showers, always clean, the best vibe (if you want to chill you can, if you want to party you can). The hostel has the best set up you can imagine with beautiful artwork everywhere. I do not even have words to describe how beautiful and helpful the...

This hostel is funky and cute and the guy on reception spoke good English. Our room was warm and we had hot showers (though heard others were not as warm). Cute surroundings and good location, close to all tour agencies and reaturants but could also arrange tours through the hostel. Would recommend to any traveller passing through. Recommended resturant: LO...

Staff are friendly and helpful, price is fair, and rooms and beds are adequate. The cleaning service is very good, and the showers/bathrooms are always in proper conditions. The only downside is that it can be very noisy the whole day, not ideal for a day nap or early sleepers.

The hostel atmosphere is really cool, and relax. The staff is very helpful, I had a problem with my luggage and they were very supportive, called the company everyday. The rooms are nice for a hostel, shower outside the room and clean. I would go back!

This was a very cute hostel. It is located just off the Main Street in San Pedro, and it has so much charm. There are hammocks and plenty of sitting area in the main lobby which is open to the outdoors. The rooms are comfortable. The reception was wonderful - incredibly nice and helpful with suggestions and bookings. No breakfast...

Chilled hostel just off the main street in Atacama. The staff here are friendly and sorted out things like changing the gas in the kitchen very quickly. The tours they organised were also good quality. The atmosphere was good and people seemed relaxed and happy to talk to each other. The kitchen had about the right amount of equipment but...

The staff was very helpful, from helping us book tours to checking in on us when we returned, and making sure that everything was fine. We even got to participate in their free barbecue one night (amazing food!!). Otherwise the Hostel was clean, and everything worked fine. The music choices were also good during the day and night! given the...

I had a reservation for one night, i thought i can extend if i like the place. I did not. The staff is not helpful. The rooms are noisy and toilets did not work. Security is not really existing. The plus is the place, located just a few steps from the main road.

Amazing hostel, totally worth the extra few £. Such a great atmosphere, especially in the evening when the roof terrace, bar, and bonfire opened up. Hammocks and cave were such a cool edition too, and really added to the quirky feel. Loved all the handmade deco and paintings everywhere. Beds were combfy and the hostel owner was great, really welcoming...
