Very much a guesthouse as opposed to a hostel, Lucia runs a beautiful and clean home in the heart of Vicuna. The rooms are large and incredibly well kept with towels and a nice bathroom with hot showers. Breakfast of fresh fruit, bread and an omelette is the perfect morning meal and Lucia will go out of her way to... More

Stayed one night on a backpacking trip with my cousin. Very nice lady who has opened up her family home to travellers. We arrived at 7am in Vicuna by overnight bus. We had no reservation and just rang the front bell and were welcomed on in given a room right away. Being allowed to check in early made a huge... More

Beautiful colonial house completely restored. Very clean and friendly. Very affordable with a good breakfast included. It is within walking distance to the "plaza de armas" and Vicuña is a very safe place to walk at night. The best part was our interaction with the owner. She is a great source of stories and tips for places to visit. Having... More

We booked this hostal after we saw it in the lonely planet. The owner Lucia couldn't have been more helpful form the moment we first exchanged emails to the day we left. The building itself is spotlessly clean with rooms situated around an open courtyard. These are cleaned throughly, daily and have evrything you need. If you are looking for... More

My friend & I stumbled across this 'hostal' as we had not booked anything before arriving in Vicuña. We were welcomed with real warmth by the hostel owner. Hot showers & easily the most comfortable bed I have slept in during my South American trip so far! Felt like being at home 😊Phenomenal Breakfast too. Coffee, a homemade omelette, great... More

I turned up mid-afternoon without a reservation, only to find all the rooms were booked. The owner very helpfully 'phoned her sister who lived 2 doors down and I got a whole chalet for the same price. Very warm, accommodaing and helpful owners.

Stayed in very pleasant single room with ensuite that has a strong hot shower and ample space. Quality breakfast unlike any I've had (lots of variety of fruit which gave me much needed vitamins missing from my Chilean diet). Star of the show is Lucia, the owner, who just takes you under her wing whilst you're here and is just... More

We stayed in this beautifully presented hostel for 2 nights. The rooms were fully equipped and it was nice to have a locked drawer in the room. The bed was one of the best beds we've ever slept in. The two sisters that run the place were lovely and welcoming and cleaned the room daily. Breakfast was nice (roll, jam,... More

Lovely hostel with bright, airy, clean rooms and a lovely central open air courtyard. The best part about it though is the hostess Lucia who acts as a surrogate mother for the weary traveller! We mentioned laundry at one point on our arrival then came back from lunch to find our big bag of dirty clothes had been whisked off... More
