We had booked one of the private rooms for the night and when we arrived early in the morning (7am) the room was ready and they let us check in at no extra cost. Check in time is usually from 12 noon. Our bus left for Santiago the next night at midnight and they were happy to let us keep... More

A nice little hostel located a block away from the main market and the buses to Valle del Elqui. The view of the city from the roof-top terrace is stunning. There's also a small bar where you can buy beer or wine if you don't want to go out for it. The largest dorm is a six bed that lacks... More

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

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.
