Very nice, family run hostel. The host is extremely helpful, he gave us all the details to cross the border to Peru for a cheap price. Room was good, showers excellent. Nice and quiet hostel. Kitchen facilities.

We stayed at Sunny Days for 2 nights but wish we could have stayed longer! Ross is THE most helpful person and he knows tonnes about Chile, not just Arica. The hostel is so friendly and has a fantastic kitchen, we cooked every night using produce from the local market down the road. The rooms are a decent size with... More

We really liked our room in the first floor, which was very bright and cosy. Breakfast was delicious and there was more than enough of it. Wifi worked exceptionally well. And we could store our big luggage in the hostel, while we went to Putre and the Lauca national park. Last but not least: the owner was really friendly and... More

This place was a real find for me and I ended up here by accident as I had vehicle problems and drove a very long way from the Bolivian/Chile border before stopping in Arica (where I knew I would not be able to start the truck again until repairs). Ross the owner is a great guy and helped me out... More

Stayed here one night. The owner is great and his English is flawless (as he is from NZ). What a relief! He has a lot of knowledge about arica and where to go! Rooms are ok, and the common rooms are huge. Lots of books and games, which makes it a nice places to meet people. Kitchen is very nice!... More

We appreciate all reviews but this guests opinions are particularly important because it has strengthened an impression we have gained over recent times. Our standard of cleanliness has slipped! We are addressing the issue - we have spoken with our staff - expressed our concerns and the situation as reviews show it. As a result we all discussed what can... More

The main asset of this place is Ross the owner, as an English speaking solo traveler it was really refreshing to be able to have a relaxing and informative conversation so far from home. The room was good and even had abundant hot water (sometimes a rarity in Sth America) The welcome drink and cake was a nice touch too.... More
