Without a doubt one of the best hostels I've ever stayed at. If you're looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, look no further. Clean rooms/bathrooms, outdoor hammocks, evenings spent by the fire having a drink under the stars, central location, warm beds...this place has it all. A special shout out to Clarence who works there -... More

Stayed 4 night and 5 dayd and loved it! Pablo was extremely helpful with booking our tours and even helped us find transportation last minute to the airport when our shuttle did not arrive (which was arranged from an outside company). Really loved the atmosphere, meet some cool people! The bonfires at night were a bonus and I loved the... More

The rooms are nice. I stayed in a shared 4 bedroom; it was very clean and had enough space for all my things. Bathrooms were pretty clean. I stayed there 3 days and noticed it was clean the entire time. The staff Pablo and Clarence were very helpful. From helping me book my tours to keeping my gear safe, to... More

The hostel "hostal rural" is excellent. We stayed there for 4 nights and the hostel rounded out my stay in San Pedro de Atacama perfectly! Rooms and bathrooms were really clean and the staff was friendly and took pains to make our stay amazing. I liked the atmosphere and the life together between guests and staff was very pleasant. I...

Hostal Rural itself is a decent hostal. It was clean, had a good overall vibe, and I liked the other travelers. However, it was kind of expensive for what it was, although I think all of the hostels in San Pedro are the same, as it is very touristy. My biggest problem with Hostal Rural was one of the staff...

I've stayed 3 nights in this hostel and it has a incredible atmosphere! It's almost in the main street and near everything! Pablo is the best staff I met so far while traveling through Peru, Bolívia e Chile. A funny guy, always ready to help with your needs, booked me tours in excellent agencies and knows a lot about his... More

Highly recommend this hostel. Only downsides are no breakfast and not many bathrooms but that said it's beautifully decorated, the staff are kind and friendly and it's in a great location. It always felt clean. Kitchen is small but well equipped.

A must-stay as a backpacker. Perfect location just off of the main drag (Caracoles) but just far enough away (~100 meters) to avoid street-noise. Perfect atmosphere: Nights are spent around the bonfire, sharing drinks and stories with fellow travelers. Wifi, kitchen, hot water, laundry service - all good. A well-enforced quiet-hour of midnight ensures you can get some sleep before... More

We stayed here for a few days and we loved it. It's a really relaxed and friendly hostel. Clarence was also extremely helpful and definitely made the stay better! They also help you to book lots of different tours in the Atacama desert, which are great value and quality.
