I was backpacking with a friend and stayed here for 2 nights in a 4 bed dorm. This is really a very nice and cosy hostel. There was even walking a rabbit around. It is a small hostel and thats why you feel home very quick. The room was very clean and comfortable with bunkbeds. I think this is one...

The dorm was share between us so it was perfect. The shared toilets and shower are always clean, the same as the kitchen area. The yard on the common area is well built, decorated and really nice to chill in the sun after a long early tour around the desert!

My wife and I travelled throughout Chile and Argentina in November 2015. This was an early stop on our trip. The owner of EcoExplor is very helpful. This is a nice hostel, with a big common area in the centre. We rented a private room that stayed warm during the cold desert night when the temperature dips to 0 degrees...

We had 3 nights in EcoExplor, and for what we were after it was perfect. It was possibly the cleanest Hostel we've been at in South Am (possibly cleaner than my house). It had lovely outside spaces to sit in the sun/shade, and comfortable, well-appointed rooms. Only observation is that there wasn't much of an atmosphere. It was super quiet,...

We have had a great time in this hostal. The two owners are very kind, the hostal is clean and there a limited number of beds so it remains calm. It is five minutes awat from the center of the city which is absolutely not a problem. We recommend without a doubt

Only negative thing to notice is, that the stuff is quiet seldom arround if you have question. And they tend to make out of litle things quiet big once- printing...

This hostel would be one of the cleanest with great kitchen facilities and very well kept. If you want a 24 reception for help etc then this is not for you. The owner is barely around to help Organise things and water was a big issue meaning toilets etc did not work in the evening and having water for showers...

This place is solidly OK. There are only 2 shared bathrooms but this never was an issue. Shared kitchen is clean and maintained. Has a nice courtyard area with hammocks, etc. My biggest complaint is that the proprietors, Victor and Maria, while very nice and helpful, are frequently nowhere to be found. So, if you have an issue, it may...

We travelled as a couple to Chile and Argentina in November 2015-We landed at the airport and were dropped off at this hostel. We sat down with the owner and she answered all our questions, and made us feel at home. This hostel is eco friendly and has an inner courtyard with hammocks and a lounging area. The room is...
