We stayed here for four nights with a group of twelve family members -- five of them under the age of six. We had a wonderful stay and found the staff to be extremely nice and tolerant of our boisterous group. The kids were thoroughly entertained by the three hammocks in the courtyard and swing and trampoline and although they... More

Breakfast is very poor. You are served at the table so you don’t pick what is necessary for your hunger. You choose between scrambled eggs or ham+cheese and bread. The breakfast hours are very bad. 07h30m until 09h30m. Usually breakfast extends until 10 or 11h. They give you a VERY small cup of artificial orange juice and one fruit of... More

We hadn't booked this place but we had trouble when we arrived in San Pedro at 1am, as our taxi driver couldn't find the hostel we had booked! After knocking on several doors, we found this place and stayed here instead. So despite our impromptu arrival we had a lovely stay. The staff didn't speak much English but we managed... More

We wish we could review the hotel but didn't get the chance. We have a few emails of communications back and forth from Maria only a few days before our arrival confirming our reservation, room type, rate, and dates. She even talks about arranging transport from Calama airport for us. When we arrived Maria wasn't there and another woman found... More

Hostal Elim is a bit of a walk from the centre, but as San Pedro is tiny this means not even a 10 minute distance. And it is actually quite welcome as the centre can get quite lively. So you can retreat to the lovely green garden and relax in the hammocks for a bit. Our room was nice, you... More

The service here was very good, the room was kept very clean with daily room service, and the price was fair for the time of year that we went. We stayed 4 nights and booked no more than a week in advance for the new year and paid $50,000 CLP/night for two people in a room with a private bath... More

What a lovely little place. 5 min stroll from town and no issue with walk back at night. Staff speak little English but super friendly and helpful. We stayed 3 nights in small but clean and comfy room. Breakfast included scrambled eggs or ham and cheese with fruit and toast. The garden is so relaxing and shady and hammocks made... More

It's a few minutes walk from the central shopping/dining/touristy area of San Pedro, and it is beautiful! The staff are SO kind and helpful and the hostel grounds are just so lovely an peaceful, a great place to come... More

Hostal Elim is a cozy and quiet hostal on San Pedro de Atacama. I had a pleasant 6 day stay there in october 2013 and nothing to complain about! Rooms are simple and not big, but have comfy beds and very good shower with hot water all day long. Breakfast is fair with coffee, milk, tea toasts, juice, butter, jam... More
