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

We have stayed in Hostal Solor for 5 nights. We even extended our stay there. +perfectly clean +the location is good. It's 10 minutes walk from San Pedro Center. 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

The hostal frequently hasn't someone in the desk. I wait at the closed door for 40 min until be able to do my check-in. The distance to Caracoles is 13 min walking (1100m), i don't mind to walk, but in the way have a lot of sand. Good Breakfast, no noise, clean bed.

This is a very simple hostal, located a good 15-minute walk from the plaza in San Pedro. The rooms are small but comfortable, with great complimentary wifi. Breakfast is basic, but very good. What really makes this place is Silvia, the owner. She is about as 'hands-on' as you could ever wish an owner to be; friendly, helpful, and being... More

Silvia waited up until we arrived at midnight. She does not speak English, but we had a Spanish speaking friend call ahead and make sure Silvia knew when we were arriving. The accommodations are simple but scrupulously clean. The hostal is on the far edge of town. We walked home from the center of town twice around midnight. We weren't... More

We definitely would recommend Hostal Solor. Its location, at San Pedro' suburbs - what is expressly mentioned by the owners - is in fact a surplus, as we can easily get there from town and rest in a very comfortable and quiet place, while admiring the Licancabur.volcano, right on the other side of the road. Señora Silvia, the host, is... More

Hostal Solor is at the edge of town, a 15 minute walk from the center. The rooms are very simple, though clean. The shower barely functioned at least in our room. It is quite noisy with packs of barking dogs braying all night. And when walking do not get near the dogs as they will charge. Breakfast was decent though... More

It's been nearly a year since I stayed at Hostal Solor (Aug. 2010), but I just got onto tripadvisor and had such a great experience that I wanted to write a review. My finance at the time and I stayed for 5 nights. While the accommodations are pretty simple (remember that you're in the middle of the desert), Silvia went... More
