This is a good place to stay in La Serena with clean rooms and a pleasant though not outstanding breakfast - some fruit would have been nice; of three nights I spent in budget hotels in North Central Chile it was the least good breakfast. I was in a very small single room with the bathroom across an open air... More

A great place to stay in a relaxing atmosphere. Staff makes you feel at home and helps make your stay enjoyable. Close to bus terminal and city center. Finally, the breakfast which is included in the price, is the best!!!

Probably the ONLY thing that we would suggest is to have a guest kitchen. That is it. And this is the reason why we give 4 instead of 5 rating. Location is close to bus station and not far from centre, definitely within walking distance in both direction. Indeed, there are few more hostel in the same street. Staff speaks... More

Hostal El Punto is a great place to stay while in La Serena. It has Spanish hacienda feel, and the rooms and facilities are clean and well maintained. The breakfast about which they boast is, in fact somewhat limited. What's included in the room price is a large basket of very good bread, along with jam, butter, some cheese and... More

The hostel is nice and the location 5-10 minutes walking distance to the bus station la serrena is perfect. The rooms are well furnished. What I disliked where the advertising and that you have to pay extra fire most things. Our room was really cold, and even the facts that we had five blankets it was really cold that you... More

This hostel is definetly one of the best hostels in Chile! Good location (5 min from the bus terminal, the Mall and the City Center), clean and spacious rooms and hot showers (all day), (german) breakfast with tea & coffee. Especially nice when the sun shines and you can sit on one of the many sunny terraces. Might not be... More

Hostal Punto has a lot of positives. It is close to bus station so you can walk there and not have to pay a taxi. It has an in-house kitchen that stays open till 8-9 p.m. which makes it really convenient to pick up an afternoon lunch/snack. The food was excellent and prices good. They also have beer, wine and...

We had a spacious, airy private room, with nice facilities. Hotel quality. Communal kettles available in the courtyard. There's also a small cafe in the hostel courtyard that does home made quiche and burgers for a reasonable price if you don't fancy eating out. The breakfast included in the price is fine, but you can add 'extras' (real coffee instead... More

We stayed at El Punto for 2 sets of 2 nights (separated by trip to Valle Elqui) at the end of October 2013. It was clear from the website that this was a hostal which price wise was geared to those not on a very tight budget, does not have a kitchen, and that rooms could be cold in winter... More

I stayed in the hostel for one night during the weekend. Since I showed up at El Punto I felt comfortable with the funny welcome and talk with the manager. The place is surrounded by nice atmosphere and also close to the bus station, Mall, Main Square and If you want you can have a walk around the town. If... More
