I got a bed in a shared 6 bedroom for 10,000 pesos or ~15$. Everything is clean, the staff is nice, and the breakfast was great. He had fruit, coffee, yogurt, rolls, local cereal options, and tea. I don't need much and it was far better than I'm used to. They also have a kitchen you're welcom to use, and... More

We thank Nate for this review which highlights the most important meal fo the day for travellers. A good breakfast sets you up for the day and the unknown answer to the question - when and where do we get the next meal. Clean rooms and good beds,+ hot water 24 hours round out the basic requirement for most backpackers.... More

Nice, clean and cozy Hostel. Feels like home. Breakfast is really good, good beds, good shower, good wifi, close to the beach and with the colectivo you'll be in a few minutes in the City centre. Nothing to complain. Really like and highly recommend this place!!

We thank this traveller for their review, it confirms we are on the right track with what we are trying to do. Sunny Days is focused on providing good basic accommodation for international backpackers – nothing luxurious just the important things to make you feel at home. Good healthy breakfast, good beds, clean rooms, good showers with hot water day... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and then 1 more on our return from Putre, in a double room with private bathroom. Although it's out of the town centre, it's still in a good location, near to the main bus station and a few minutes from the beach. The rooms were fine - comfy beds and good towels. Breakfast was...

Thanks to the guest that sent us this review. It is excellent that you mention the issue of hot and cold water in the shower. That particular room has a gas califont that operates on water flow so adjusting the controls from being too hot to cold requires a slow movement or the gas cuts out and all you get... More

Stayed here for 2 nights. Bit of a walk to the town centre but you cannot have everything. Nice breakfast and host Ross a mine of information and assistance. Got to be neat when summer gets here. Not sure if the body boards would be much use on the beach near the Hostal but ....

The hostel is situated a few steps from the bus termina and the beach, the market is near by and a supermarket is 10 minutes away. i had a bunk bed free 6 person dorm, the chillout area is great and the breakfast familiar and you get everything you want. and the owners are superfriendly!

I was there for 2 days in April and 4 days in May. Everyone was very pleasant, friendly and helpful. Lots to eat for breakfast. Clean rooms. This is the way a business should be run. Sunny Days is a great place to stay.

Sunny Days is a great place to stay when you're visiting Arica! The owner, Ross, is more like your uncle then a hostel owner. Warm, friendly and welcoming! He greeted me with a smile a glass of juice and a piece of cake! Rooms are clean and spacious. Bathrooms and showers are spotless. The kitchen is huge! You won't be... More

Having arrived really early in the morning on a night bus from San Pedro I was welcomed by Ross to a freshly made pot of coffee and breakfast, before being shown to the shared room and my bed. I was given a map and lots of local information by Ross, he was also very helpful with directions before I had... More

Like staying with your favorite auntie and uncle, Ross and the team are great! Definitely a home away from home and surely the best place in town. Rooms are clean and spacious, breakfast plentiful and the hostel conveniently located walking distance from both the bus station and beach.
