The perfect place to relax, to go to the beach, enjoy natur of the near beaches (mompiche, playa escondida, stero de platano), but also a godd place to make parties and dance till the morninglight......
The owner is nice, helpfull, open minded with a great heart and after the first minutes you are at the chill inn you feel at home....
Thank you for everything..

besos

I have been driving from all the way from california and to find little gems like this is a pleasure. When your driving you need a safe place to park your car . it was so nice to have that here, also it was clean and had a very laid back chill style hence the name. In the evening, good music and cheap tasty drinks and moto taxi right out the door for only a dollar to your favorite restaurant. It was a perfect stop for us. thank you chill in for all the hospitality

I stayed here early September 2012. The hostel is in a great location--just a half block from the beach and all the bars. But, it's pretty run down. The linens are old and worn. There is no hot water and VERY low water pressure. However, the owner/operator is very friendly and very helpful. She makes you feel welcomed.

I feel very sorry for the water problem - it is fixed and we have normal pressiom again.
New bed linen are on the way.
Hot water is not very common here in Atacames in this price range.
Thanks for the good comment about the lady owner, it is always a pleasure to help our guests wherever we can. Thanks for sharing with us some days and hope you had a good rest of your short trip through South America. Best wishes and thanks for your comment.

We spent one night in Atacames at the Chill Inn. The rooms were nice and clean, the kitchen made good food and was open to guests for simple use. Yolanda was a great host and gave us some good ideas on where to go and what to do. Attacames is a high energy place but the Chill Inn was relaxed with a great babmoo gazebo/bar in front with flowers growing on it where a few locals and guests were hanging out and talking late into the night. The room had a fan, fresh towels, window screens, a closet and well apointed private bathroom. No complaints.

This place feels like a home thanks to Yolanda who will take care of you. We spent four nights here and it was such a pleasure. Yolanda helped us on everything and made us feel welcome.

Room was huge and clean. There is not warm water showers but you don't really need one. There was some mosquitos in the room so remember to take repellant with you. The staff will clean the room whenever you want them to do so.

There is also nice outside lounge area with tables and chairs. You can also chill out inside and watch movies and cook something in the kitchen which is available for customers.

The location is just perfect: one block from beach street but it is very quiet.

For animal lovers: there are one lively dog and two cats. The dog is always ready to play with you.

If we have to find something negative from this place it was the neighbor's rooster who woke us up every morning. Some street dogs were barking too.

I went to Chill Inn on a weekend beach trip to Atacames. We arrived VERY early (6 in the morning) by bus, and Yolanda was nice enough to let us in and have a room ready for us at that hour. The hostal itself feels very secure because there is a large gate at the front that is locked at night. The rooms were very spacious and held many people, which was nice since I was traveling with 4 others. The shower was cold with OK water pressure, but it wasn't an issue since it was so humid there anyway. There were hammocks on the balcony, and a rusty guitar that we were free to use. Breakfast was a cheap $2.50, and we tried eggs in a hole (eggs in a basket), and pancakes, with a swedish spin on both! Breakfast also came with coffee and juice - quite worth the money. Our room itself only cost $8 per person per night, and we thought this was quite a deal. The mattresses were dirty, but the sheets were clean. The beds were perfectly comfortable. We were provided towels for showering, and if we wanted, towels for the beach as well. Overall we really enjoyed our time at Chill Inn and would definitely recommend it to anyone traveling to Atacames! It's right off of the main beach street as well, so really great location.
