This hostel is nice. The attendents are kind and helpful. The accomodations were ok, except for one bed that had fleas. The main problem was that the water shower was cold, differently of what was announced. It's a good place to stay in San Pedro de Atacama if you like the party type of hostel with cool street art. Anyway,... More

Great hostel, staff are as good as I've ever experienced, incredibly helpful and fun to be around. A family atmosphere is aimed for and achieved. Probably aimed more at the younger crowd but a noise cessation rule at midnight is excellent, especially for those up at 4 for the geysers. Yes, sometimes the wifi didn't work or the water was...

Stayed here after I had two so-so nights in other hostels in San Pedro and this is definitely one of the best hostels I've ever been in. Hector, Clarence and Nataniel are super friendly and helpful and they also speak perfect English. Hector in particular was a great help in suggesting good places to eat/drink and also telling me about... More

If you want a place to hang out and party, this is it. The smell of marijuana is always in the air and at night the staff sets up an area for a DJ to play. If you want a place that is clean (the bathrooms in my 6 bed room where at one point not cleaned for two days)... More

It was really nice that the hostel set up (good) tours for guests! I liked the environment of the common areas with murals, hammocks, and a cave to hang out in but I would trade all of that to just have clean sheets on my bed. Which unfortunately, I did not. The wifi was spotty at best, dorms were noisy,... More

We had a great time in Hostal Rural, when we visited San Pedro de Atacama. The rooms were very nice and the hostel offered the opportunities to do all the tourist stuff nearby. It's a great place to relax, and the staff there are great. In particular, Clarence who worked at the front desk was a bloody legend, and he... More

Great hostal with very nice staff. Starting with the New Years party to the last night of my stay I had a blast. Staff took a group of us to a few local Bon fire parties, to having a DJ play right at the hostel. If you are looking for a fun time in San Pedro this is the place... More

I spent 5 days in San Pedro de Atacama and had a great time in this hostel. If you are on your own, it is the perfect mix of being small and chilled out, and at the same time really easy to meet people. I organised all my tours through the hostel and they were fantastic! Also, if you can,... More
