We stayed 3 nights there, everything was good. They have only one electric heater for the rooms so we should share it. And to have a really good hot shower, you should use less water (but its not a big trouble, just need to know that trick). Is a nice and clean place!

My boyfriend and I ended up staying at Maria Casa for a week while in La Serena. From the moment we walked in Maria offered us coffee with bread and marmalade and her son sat us down and gave us a detailed explanation of La Serena and the surrounding activities. The hostel is impeccably clean and Maria and her two... More

Excellent place to stay and with great prices. The owner family is very kind and helpful. Very clean as well. We had internet normally (not limited, as it is in the picture). Stayed there for two nights and was a very good choice.

The reason I have rated this hostel a 4 is because of the fantastic location to the bus station and the easy going owners. This place is great value for money also. The rooms and clean and comfortable. The only down sides are it is a pretty decent walk to the beach, around 30 minutes and the shared bathrooms were... More

The woman running this pretty, small place is an absolute sweetheart! When i told her i was feeling unwell, she showed genuine concern, and offered me anything she had to help. I was very humbled and appreciative. Simple, clean accommodations, in a beautiful garden setting. I only stayed one night, but had a really nice morning, chatting and having tea... More

When I arrived at midnight, with 700 CHP, I was given a double room for the price of a single and told to sleep well. I spent most of the next day trying to figure out my banking situation (the bank thought my card got stolen and blocked it) and checking out La Serena a bit. Needless to say I... More

I didn't actually end up staying here due to the fact that my wife and I booked a cama matrimonial only to discover that the owner had made a mistake and one was not available. He was very apologetic about this and let us store our bags while we made other arrangements. However, I can say that the rooms nearest... More

Very friendly family that runs it. And helpful with info on tours and transport. Lovely garden area to sit around in, and decent wi-fi. Sometimes have to wait for the shared bathrooms to be free and it can be noisy in the rooms towards the front (near the kitchen and eating area) Note that there is no breakfast included, so... More
