All rooms open into common courtyard where people drink/smoke/ chat or meet for early morning excursions, so noisy. Rooms are cramped, dirty and basic. Light fittings falling off walls etc. there's hardly any space for bags because of the overcrowded conditions. Some rooms look like a concentration camp. Bathroom and kitchen all awful. Toilet and shower Doors don't lock, they... More

This hostel certainly does not live up to HI standards. Ill start with the good - the staff were very friendly and helpful. I did most of the tours offered after checking with other agencies and these were among the cheaper. The tours were great a well organised. The bad - the bathrooms were not clean and it was a...

I think it was the worst hostel i stayed during my trip. The staffs are very rude, the rooms are dirty and has no space to put your stuffs apropriatelly. The bathrooms are very cold and dirty. The only good thing is you can taje shower with hot water. Breakfast is bad too. I didn't like and for this reason... More

The lockers were a closet area where every one would put their bags in it and by the time you would get yours, it took a while to find it. The rooms are cold at night too, so it's not a place to go in the winter cause the walls had holes in them which made our room super cold.... More

I totally agree with the previous comments and Hostelling International is the worst hostal of Atacama. It's is very expensive for the worst quality ever seen: very durty, impossible to close the doors of the bathroom, no water for two days, very noisy, unsafe, etc (and we were in a private room!!!). When we tryied to explain it to the... More

Personal advise: don t book this hostel! Service absolutely poor. Rude, unfriendly and not good to tourists. To expensive, not clean, stinky noisy. I can recommend you all other hostels in SPA but not this one

Chose this hostel due to it's Hostelling International association as I have never had any issues with a HI hostel before. This hostel was so rundown that it was unsafe, and there was no security what so ever. There were no safes/lockers or even locks on the doors so anyone could enter at anytime. In fact my husband wasn't feeling... More

Horrible Customer Service I am really surprised and shocked that Hostelling International (HI) associates with this hostel and Lonely Planet recommends it. We got to Atacama and started shopping for Hostel, despite being one of the expensive, we decided to stay at this hostel coz of the association with Hostelling International and recommendation by Lonely Planet, BIG Mistake. Second day,... More

Maybe the place has brushed up a bit since these reviewers visited but we, as a group of three female travellers 18-22 stayed and had a perfectly fine time for the price we were paying. We paid 7000 CLP for beds in a six person dorm (two three-tier bunk beds - very exciting!!) and were in the dorm just opposite... More

Actually there is nothing positively to say about this place. Except the location. Is located quite conveniently in San Pedro. Otherwise it's absolutely not worthy to check-in. I ve booked a double room with private bathroom for 33.000 CLP - what I got was a real desaster in terms of service, quality, staff competence and infrastructure. i m not going... More
