I'd start by saying that this wasn't our first choice for accom in San Pedro de Atacama but, due to there being a long weekend (which we weren't aware of), hotel rooms in the town were at a premium. The Terracota was literally the only place we could get a bed for 4 nights and, while we were thankful to... More

We stayed one night here, as we realised that we could get something just as good for about half the price. Accommodation in San Pedro is very expensive but there are lots of new places cropping up so if you keep looking you should be able to find a double room for 25,000 pesos or thereabouts. This place charged 50,000... More

1) Great Location - Just a block away from the main street that has all the Tour Company Offices and the Restaurants. 2) Safe and Comfortable Stay - Even if you dont really see the other tourists / boarders / front desk (It's not like a Hotel) 3) Clean 4) Friendly Owners

We stayed 3 nights in Hostal Terracota. The family which owns the place are very friendly and helpful (especially Olga!). The garden is quite charming, it is very centrally located (just a few minutes from the main street) and the rooms are simply but nice and clean. There is great free wifi, the breakfast is very good. Had some problem... More

The place is nice and in good location and you can parked your car which is very handy. The rooms are in reasonable size. The breakfast however is terrible. Whether you share your room or not you get the same amount of portion. No eggs are given unless you ask for and even though you only get one egg for... More

Estivemos eu, minha esposa e meu filho no final de 2011, início de 2012, nesta pousada. Fiz a reserva por email e realmente não tinha ideia o que encontraria. Nos deram dois quartos conjugados, com um banheiro comum (um quarto com camal de casal e o outro com duas camas de solteiro). Os quartos são limpos e bem cuidados, o... More

I stayed here for almost three weeks in June and July 2011. The place is nice. There is no heating, and since I was there in winter, the rooms were cold. This is not a complaint, just a heads up in case you want heating. There is hot water 24 hours a day, but in the winter, the heater can... More

Very comfortable place. Just seven rooms around a central courtyard. Rooms are comfortable (big enough, clean and as prepared as possible for the cold San Pedro nights at Chilean winter) and in the porche you have table and chairs to read or to watch the Atacama sky. Minor problems with water but this happens in all Atacama. 2-minute walk from... More

Hi, I just wanted to say that Terracota is a beautiful place to stay. First of all the owners are really nice and friendly people. The place is very quiet and comfortable. The rooms are a bit small, but who wants to stay indoors! Only good things to say, I fully recommend it . And I´m really picky about hostals... More
