Didn't have a booking but they had rooms on arrival. We were going to stay in a private double room (25k) but ended up asking to go to a dorm as the room was very damp. You could smell it as soon as you walked in and there were large patches on the wall (downstairs next to bathroom). The four... More

We really enjoyed our 3 nights here. The common areas were nice and there was a good atmosphere. The staff are all really friendly and speak English. In particular a guy called German (pronounced Herman). He couldn't do enough to help and gave us tips on where to go in Valpriaso too. Also a very interesting guy who spoke perfect... More

Unfortunatly I only had one night here. I wish i would have stayed longer. I arrived at two o'clock in the morning, and got the grand tour of the hostel like I would have in the day. The property itself was just awesome. Easy to meet people up in the roof terraces. Even if the breakfast is till 11, there... More

Jekyll and Hyde staff. The older guy is unresponsive, disinterested and unhelpful and rude. The younger guy was friendly, helpful and genuine. The rooms are basic, unloved as is the kitchen, common areas and lockers. Showers are ropey. The concrete stairs to the common room is a death trap. No handles and no lights, they will be the scene of... More

I came to stay two nights in this hostel and ended up totally changing my plans and leaving that night but the hostel were so helpful! They let me shower, did my washing and stored my luggage all day for me. When I came back they let me hang out in the hostel until my bus then called a me... More

Nice enough place. Laundry done in house but had to remind twice for it to be done/prepared. Breakfast nice but not all stuff including bread available by time breakfast was supposed to start. Good size private room. Clean bathroom with decent shower. Good location from town centre. Information given about top sights in area.

Unfortunately our experience with Aji Verde was very poor. We had reserved a room and had emailed ahead to say we'd be arriving at 4am as our bus arrived in La Serena at 3.30am. We received a response to say that it was all OK as they had 24 hour reception. Unfortunately when we arrived at 3.45am and rang the... More

This hostel is well located for the town centre and markets ( all walking distance). It's bit far to walk from the bus terminus - Taxi about £4 and bus just under a pound. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. The kitchen area was kept clean and there is free coffee/tea all the time. There was heating in the... More
