The best part about this place was that it had great and accommodating staff. My bus leaving San Pedro wasn't departing until about 8pm, but they still allowed me to stay in my room and use the shower well after normal check out times to allow me to wait for my bus in comfort instead of sitting at the bus...

This is a very nice hostel. It is not located in the town center but as san pedro is a small town you can walk everywhere within 10 minutes. The rooms and the bathrooms are very clean. As is the kittchen. The patio is very cozy (with hammocks) and the wifi very fast. The breakfast is simple but nice and... More

It is a confortable hostal at 15 min walking from Caracoles street in San Pedro de Atacama. The host helps on arranging the typical tours to be done in San Pedro through Juriques Tour Travel agnecy. The rooms and hostal are clean and confortable with a space to chill out and share a bit with the other visitors who are... More

We had to wait over an hour to check in when we arrived as the staff were rarely around. Despite having arranged to be picked up from the bus station no one came for us and the hostel is hard to find. Our room was okay apart from the smell of cat pee, there's cats all over the place. Other... More

We booked this as it was the cheapest on line with a bathroom. The price was $66.00 dollars for 1 night. After 12 hours on the bus from Salta, Argentina and being unceremoniously dumped at the border with no map or taxi. We were left to find our own way. Luckily the tourist office helped and recommended a taxi as... More

We were greatly appreciative that the owner picked us up from the bus station well after 11 pm. The room was clean, and the shared bathroom had hot water. The little courtyard has hammocks, and is a pleasant place to chill. It is a fair way out of town. Excellent value for money though.

Hostel prices are a lot more expensive in San Pedro than most other places in Chile. We chose Iquisa because it was the cheapest. Part if the reason for this I guess is that the hostal is situated a few minutes walk outside of the tourist centre of the town. This wasn't much of a problem though as if the... More

10 minutes away from the main plaza/center of San Pedro de Atacama, it is actually not far and there is also a nice fruit market on the way. Very fresh and yummy fruits! The hostel itself is nice. The room was not too big and not too small, shared bathroom but after a long time in the road it was... More

We had emailed in advance for a bus station pick up, emailed again to say the bus was late, on arrival we couldn´t see anyone so we just walked. At the hostel the people were really friendly, the language barrier was the only problem that held us back from chatting with them. I took loads of photos of the hostel... More
