It is a nice, very clean and peaceful hostal. The owners are helpful as well.It is good to have rules respecting other guests. The place is within walking distance to the centre, if you like walking you can stil reach some beaches in the South or take a bus.

There are couples rooms that are tiny but room 15 is pretty big, but it's at the entrance so your hear everyone that's coming in the hostel. The rooms are very very clean, and you get new towels every day (only in the couples rooms). Cons: A lot of rules and extra costs - All the common areas can't be... More

This hostel was good. Although the room was quite small it was adequate and was very clean. No heating was provided but the room was not as cold as some hotels. Breakfast was basic but adequate. The Hostel is walking distance to the sights, shops, and restaurants.

This place has great amenities, including a comfortable TV room where you can even use Netflix, lovely seating area, computer room and kitchen BUT as soon as you enter the building you are confronted with the many rules this place has. You are not allowed food or drink in your tiny bedroom (so small that the sink couldn't fit in... More

This hotel offers great value for money. It is very clean, secure and welcoming. Close to the town centre, it offers lots of information on possible tours in the region. One of the best hotels we have stayed in for the money.

The room and shower area was very clean. Probably the cleanest hostel we had been in so far! There was good wi-fi and a TV in the room. There were several common areas that were very comfortable. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Kitchen facilities good. Near to main shopping area and restaurants. Room was a bit small for the... More

A warm welcome for visitors from the enthusiastic staff. Standards of presentation and cleanliness are very high here. The location is close to the popular 21 de mayo pedestrianised street and yet you are within easy walking distance of Laucho beach. There is good advice available about what to do in Arica and nearby. The price represents amazingly good value... More

We stayed for one night as a couple. We were instantly made to feel welcome by the hostel staff and given maps /info on the area. Our room was small with double bed and shower / toilet. The hostal has strict rules about noise after 11pm which was good for us as we had to be up early. The breakfast... More

Jardin del Sol certainly has nice aspects. The interior court yard and the breakfast are part of these. Still, it is an expensive place that seems to hesitate between being a Hotel or Hostel. We reserved for the family (two adults and two children) a full room. What we got is a double bed and an adapted slide out bed... More

I stayed at the Hostal Jardin del Sol in Arica on 2 occasions recently and was very pleased. Their public places like the upstairs and ground floor patios are wonderful places to relax and pass the time. The hostal offers free computer and kitchen use, which came in very handy for me during Christmas. I had a room on the... More
