This is the first time I leave such a low rating review, but I'm sorry I have left with no choice. With signs on common area saying to be quiet after 11 am, the guests seemed to ignore it, nor the staff to stop them. They turned the music "extremely out loud" since 10 pm and turned the hostel into... More

Good location, very handy to catch a bus to the Elqui valley, just around the corner, and 10 min walk to the centre. Nice common areas and good breakfast. The walls are super thin and you can literally hear EVERYTHING, from the doorbell to noise in the street. My room was located directly above the dining area and if there... More

I enjoyed a lot my stay there. The view from the terrace is spectacularous and you can lend the..... How do you call that? The thing to look far away, the one that the pirats use.

We arrived on a Sunday night to be told the 2 month old reservation I had made with booking.com was missing and they were full The unhelpful staff only rang around after we insisted. The staff then listed us as "no show" on booking.com and charged us for a nights stay. Awful experience!!

A good location with a nice outdoors space and a good size kitchen. The rooms are clean but a bit damp smelling. The location is close to the town and bus station. The staff are very helpful with lots of useful tips and very friendly staff. The breakfast is good and included in the price.

We spent 2 nights here and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hostel is in a great location and rooms were comfortable. The staff are very friendly and helpful and really engage with guests. There is a garden and roof terrace overlooking the city which is a cool place to relax in the evening. Would recommend it for any travellers passing... More

We had booked one of the private rooms for the night and when we arrived early in the morning (7am) the room was ready and they let us check in at no extra cost. Check in time is usually from 12 noon. Our bus left for Santiago the next night at midnight and they were happy to let us keep... More

A nice little hostel located a block away from the main market and the buses to Valle del Elqui. The view of the city from the roof-top terrace is stunning. There's also a small bar where you can buy beer or wine if you don't want to go out for it. The largest dorm is a six bed that lacks... More

Didn't have a booking but they had rooms on arrival. We were going to stay in a private double room (25k) but ended up asking to go to a dorm as the room was very damp. You could smell it as soon as you walked in and there were large patches on the wall (downstairs next to bathroom). The four... More
