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

A hostal with a hotel feel which is a nice change if you've been on the road for awhile but still need to stay in budget. Breakfasts were plentiful and delicious and served in the lovely patio area. The place was spotless and safe. Owners and staff extremely nice and helpful. They know some English and is enough to get... More

On my way to Santiago I stayed two nights at this place. The rooms are comfortable and get cleaned every day. The price is really nice for a private room including bathroom. The hostal is situated close to the center but in a more quiet area. Most of all the owners are lovely andere friendly people. Which really helps when... More

We had a very pleasant 3 nights here as a chance for some R&R between bus journeys. The lady on reception spoke no English but spoke Spanish so slowly and clearly for us that we managed quite well (and we only speak a tiny bit!). We had a room on the first floor. The room was very small - a... More

Over the course of three weeks in south America this was hands down the nicest hostel we stayed in and rightfully merits the top reviews it has received in various travel guide books. The couple who run the hostel are exceptionally enthusiastic about the area and spent a good amount of time running through all the areas of local interest... More
