I had a lovely stay at this hostel. The family are very warm & welcoming. Maria greeted me with custard & poached apples! Mauricio had plenty of travel tips for La Serena & surrounding areas and even tailor made my itinery for the 2 days to spend there. It is a comfortable, peaceful, clean, and well maintained place to rest.

Found this hostel by chance walking from the bus station to the main plaza when we were approached by owner and offered a really good deal. The hostel was ten minutes from bus station and 15 minutes from main plaza, 15 minutes from supermarket and around 30 minutes from the beach. The hostel is run by a lovely warm and... More

I contacted Hostal Maria Casa for availability and a Hostal called El Observatorio answered. They said Maria Casa was full but we could stay at El Observatorio. I accepted as it seemed like they were affiliated and that the quality should be the same. The Hostal is located close to the bus station which suited us well, but the town... More

Great place to stay whenever you are in La Serena. When we arrived here, The family was very helpful. They even offered to wash our clothes and made us a meal. Foor $8,000 per person a day, highly recommend thuis place for everyone to stay. Showers are hot, and beds are nice too.

We stayed 3 nights there, everything was good. They have only one electric heater for the rooms so we should share it. And to have a really good hot shower, you should use less water (but its not a big trouble, just need to know that trick). Is a nice and clean place!
