As soon as you enter hostel rural you feel there is a great vibe about the place. On our last night, the new roof top bar opened which can only mean this place will get even better. They are adding more dorms in the next 6 months also. The staff were great and booked every tour we wanted to do,... More

I really love the energy of this place. Amazing communal area to relax in hammocks or sit around a bonfire with some wine under the moon. I trusted Nate to coordinate my tours and he hooked it up with the best tour guides I've experienced in South America. I really had the best time there and would recommend a stay... More

We stayed here for three nights having just finished the salt flats tour from Bolivia. The hostel was cool and quirky with nice hot showers and a big bathroom which was just what was needed after the basic accommodation on the tour. The hostel was really helpful in recommending and organising tours/taxis etc. would really recommend this chilled out, cool... More

When we arrived at this hostel after the worst trip on a night bus they told us there was a problem with our reservation and we had to get another hostel and come back the next day. We had booked and paid online and left for a few hours and when we came back somebody canceled and they my let... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and met some great people as the hostel is so communal. There is a book shelf with all the travel books you want. The staff were very friendly when they greeted us however during the stay some were very rude and they were up all night partying (which we weren't allowed to) and making... More

We spent two nights in a guesthouse of sorts in San Pedro and when we decided to extend our stay we booked with hostal rural. Helps to book ahead as they are quite busy but incredibly friendly helpful staff with a kitchen and cool hangout area. We had bonfires every night and met some really cool people, rooms were warm...

One of the best hostels I stayed at during my travels. The atmosphere was fantastic, Hector and Nat who worked there were so friendly and interesting, and the whole hostel was relaxed, fun, with awesome arty quirks everywhere. The amenities were absolutely fine, and they gave great recommendations on where to shop and eat. Didn't want to leave!

Super nice hostel with cool common place to hang out (you can take this literally). But I think the biggest advantage this hostel has, are the wonderfull people that work here. Willing to help and advise you, everytime, but also sitting around the campfire at night with all the other guests (when they are not on duty offcourse). So... great... More

Loved, loved, loved this hostel!!!!!!!! When I showed up in San Pedro, I was dropped off at the hostel, to be honest I wasn't initially blown away by the asthetic, but it had a really cool vibe to it with hammocks set up, and once I stepped fully in, I saw why everyone says to stay here!! I instantly felt... More

Thanks to Hector and Nataniel for their help and great recommendations during my stay. The hostel has a great social vibe. The beds comfy and hot showers. Only reason I give 4 instead of 5 stars is the noise from the construction of renovations at the hostal. These are only during the day but really noisy. The end result should... More
