This hostel (formerly known as Inca North and most tour companies still know it as this) is fine - it's quite far from town which was a tiring sometimes if going back and forth but does give you stunning views of the surrounding landscape. The staff are super lovely and our private room was beautiful, also the 'sunken' living room... More

One oof the best hostel in San Pedro de Atacama. The staff, Sandra, was so nice that just make you fell at home. Moreover, the place is really tidy with a very facilitated common place. Dont miss this hostel if you dont have much budget but still want to have great experience in SPdA.

The hostel has beauuutiful panoramic view of the volcanic range wich the hostels in the town don´t have. The rooms at the hostel were a lot more spacious and had more character than the ones i previously stayed... More

I truly liked staying in this place. The staff is nice, kind and always helpful. It's a 10-min walk from SPA center, but it worth. At night, the neighborhood is quiet... good to sleep. The property had some problems with payment mode in the time, but Karin, the owner, was totally helpful to solve it. I'd surely come back. They... More

The hostal is a great deal if you don't mind a 15min walk to the center. But if you are in San Pedro, you are supposed to support this kind of exercise:) Otherwise, it is clean, quiet, safe and reasonably priced. On top of that, it provides for free Trek bikes, which are useful not only to get to the... More

This is San Pedro de Atacama. This is an adventure. The whole puna is here. The sourrounding geography and the unbelieveble full stars sky are unique. This hostal is located in the north area of the small town, 15 minutes walking distance to downtown. They provide free bikes (this is a PLUS). Rooms are ok for this kind of adventure... More
