I was a bit skeptical about the hostel experience but there weren't a lot of accomodations in this little town and this place was recommended by the operators of the Observatorio del Pangue. I was able to get a private room with ensuite bath for about $20. The owner was extremely helpful in suggesting places to eat, etc. The building... More

Staying here was a highlight of our 8 month trip. The hostess Lucia was incredibly warm and attentive. She made us feel welcome and gave us some great recommendations of things to see and do in the area that we never would have discovered ourselves. The house is lovely and full of history, the sun-drenched courtyard is beautiful and the... More

This was such a wonderful place. The host, Lucia, brings you in like family and really tries to get a feel for your interests when making recommendations for area activities. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. The rooms are very cozy, but the central open air courtyard is where you'll find the wi-fi signal, and it's great for... More

Very friendly and helpful owners, comfortable and clean bedrooms, good breakfast (loved the jam). The only downside was the shower--alternated between boiling hot/freezing cold--but this is a common problem in many places I've stayed in Chile.

The positive reviews are all accurate. The building is a traditional home with the bedrooms all leading off from a central courtyard that is open to the stars. Rooms are clean and the hospitality is evident from the first moment. Breakfast is excellent and the location is 5 minutes walking to the town center. It is also only 2 minutes... More

Lucia is an great host - friendly and passionate about the area. Vicuña is nice and an excellent place to explore Valle del elqui. i would have no trouble recommending people here at all. I really enjoyed it and found the breakfast quite good, fresh fruit, jam, avocado, cheese and ham. go out for coffee if it's important to you

We only had a short stay with Lucia, but she made us feel like family. She gave us a list of suggestions for things to do in the Elqui Valley, and took care of booking our evening visit to the Mamalluca Observatory.

We spent three nights here in mid August. The hostel is a traditional style house with a central courtyard, a 5 minute walk from the town square. The breakfasts were excellent with lots of fresh fruit. Lucia, the owner, is lovely and had lots of good suggestions for places to eat and things to do in and around Vicuna. When... More

Located only three blocks from the city square, the location is great, the hotel is very nice and the owner/manager is great. With an inner courtyard open to the sky, the lounge area becomes a great place to just relax a bit. Wifi worked great in the courtyard, but connectivity was spotty in my room.

I had the pleasure of staying at this wonderful guesthouse / hostel ... Wonderful large rooms .. Large ceilings ... Comfortable beds ... Great breakfast ... A historical building constructed by Senora Lucia's grandfather. Lucia was a wonderful and kind host and she made many suggestions on things to do in Vicuna. Thank you.
