I stayed in a single room w. Private bath and an outside porch. It was quiet and clean and comfortable. Highly recommended. Staff we're especially helpful especially Beatriz and Laura. Excellent location. Bed very comfortable.

We stayed in a nice and airy double room with ensuite bathroom. However, it was rather cold and I thought it unfair to make guests rent a heater when the room is not heated - especially in winter. The cafe offers an adequate breakfast (anything else - like juice or eggs available for an additional cost). We have tried their... More

My husband and I recently spent two nights here. We arrived from santiago by bus and the hostal is located a very easy walk from the bus terminal - literally 5-10 minutes. We reserved the room that day and were left with few options. We settled for a small matrimonial with shared bathroom. The room was an ok size, we... More

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...
