So I booked this hotel a few days in advance whilst I was on my 3 day trip in the salt lakes of Bolivia. Jose was very quick to respond and very friendly. Upon arrival he was on time and collected me from the immigration place. His hostal is literally a 2 minute walk from there so do not get back on the bus as you will only have to walk further to get to the hostal. Do write down the address as I did walk around a bit a couple of times getting back there.
Upon arrival I met Jose's wife who was really lovely. The room was clean, bed was comfortable and it even had a fridge which I didnt expect. The bathroom was also clean but the water pressure was very very poor. It was in fact the poorest I had experienced in a long time and having just returned from the desert I was desperate to have a nice shower and wash my hair. From what I understand the whole area suffers from this and prices everywhere in San Pedro de Atecama are high everywhere. I also realised that having seen most of the highlights in the salt lakes and given the buses to Salta, Argentina would only leave on certain days, to spend only one night there. Jose who had been really nice I think was quite upset when I expressed my disappointment with the shower pressure. Apart from this my stay was fine. I paid about 40USD (20 chilean pesos) for one person for one night, no breakfast included. I'm not sure how this compared to other places but San Pedro is expensive so you might want to hunt around when going around restaurants etc. I paid 5,000 for my valle de la luna tour so I'm sure you can find one about that. Many other places wanted to charge more. Wifi didnt quite reach my room either so make sure you pick a room which is central and reaches the wifi signal.
Overall this hostal is fine if you are not bothered about a good shower - if so you might want to find somewhere else.
