Sylvia was an absolutely excellent host from the very start of our booking. She responded to emails and when we arrived on the overnight bus from La Serena, she met us at the bus terminal and took us to Hostal Solor. That nice touch was very much appreciated.  The room was just what we needed and it also had heating... More

I booked a triple room from the UK using Paypal for the deposit. Very easy to do. The room was large enough for the three adults and the bathroom was also good. Breakfast was fine and our host was very accommodating. We can get by in Spanish but those who cannot may find it a little more difficult although every... More

We stayed at hostal solor for 5 nights and overall our experience was excellent! We never stayed in a hostal before so wasn't sure what to expect but the host was very warm and welcoming. The rooms are spacious, cleaned every day, hot showers, wifi friendly and breakfast is continental. Car parking is on the road outside although the host... More

Overall this was a great place to stay in San Pedro. It wasn't cheap, but then, as many others have said, San Pedro is not cheap! Sylvia, who runs the hostal, is a lovely host. She doesn't speak much English but her son speaks it very well and when he was around he was very helpful. We thought the location... More

I had a good staying at the hostal, the service was good, however the hostal staff keep saying to save water (little annoying) but necessary once you are in the desert - the shower takes a little long to get hot. The breakfast is great, location is ok, for those who dont mind going for a walk is close to... More

The advantage is that it's really silent here (opposite to San Pedro's Center). +silence !!! This means a good sleep in comfortable bed. You need it in this climate. Mind that... More

As other reviewers have stated, this hostal is quite a long walk into town and you really have to plan your day to avoid unnecessary returns in the blistering sun. It is a long, dusty walk, but the whole town is dusty and I think there are only two taxis, so don't count on using them. Most tour operators pick... More
