Me and 2 other friends went to San Pedro de Atacama on late July, 2014 and stayed at Hostal Rural. For sure, it is one of the best hostels in SPA, it is placed right next to the main road, the rooms are just fine and as so it is the kicthen. If you´re a young backpaker, travelling across Latin...

This is a great choice for anyone on a budget! I had the best stay in this place. Tours will be organized for you by the hostel and the ones I did were all amazing. There is hot water from the showers (although it took me some time to figure that out...) and when I was there, there was always... More

Rocked up to this hostel and a party was in full swing. Mainly of drunken staff members. So checking in was a bit of a pain, but after that blip we could enjoy the fun atmosphere underway. Rural is a very social and friendly place to stay, with so many excursions on offer in the surrounding area. Staff are helpful... More

Good facilities, great atmosphere and the best staff (thank you Clarence and Pablo)! Hostel Rural is one of those places that you regret having to leave - had a lot of fun here and hope to return someday!!

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...
