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

Maria is one of the loveliest people I have ever met .so funny and friendly. I cannot believe people complain about noise in a hostel and that they cannot sleep... Why travel then , sleep when you're dead suckers! Get a life! The rooms were comfortable and clean as with the hot water I ask where in South America is... More

Clean, cheap rooms provided by extremely friendly staff! The kitchen is well equipped and an enormous supermarket with laundry service close by. Just 2 blocks from the bus station and the city centre is on walking distance! Everything a traveler needs!
