The hostal is reasonably new, clean and located close to the beach, shops, bus terminals and restaurants. The staff are friendly and helpful. Their level of English varies but we never had any trouble communicating. They also can arrange tours if you don't want to hassle with tour offices. The two things that slightly let the place down are there's... More

It's a nice hostel with spacious rooms and hangout areas. The kitchen is well equipped. The common areas were still kind of cold and plain when I was there, but I definitely enjoyed my hammock time in the nice patio. There is sun and shade and it's quite. It is a very good alternative to the overpriced Kokopelli nearby (2/3... More

Had various accommodation styles at excellent pricing. We stayed in a private room with its own private bathroom. Hosts were extremely helpful in books tours/trips and helping us organize our trip. Room was decently clean and functional. Only comment is that there wasn't a lot of sound proofing from outside noise. That being said, I wasn't woken up at night... More

Alberto and Lidia are great. They help book tours and busses, tell you where to eat on whatever budget you have, wat to pay for cabs, meals, tours. From the very start, the email they send you with instructions to the hostel, to the very end, where they help you get on the correct bus. The wifi could be better.... More

This is a clean, nice and spacious hostel. Location is great as this centrally located and walking distance to almost everywhere. Just stayed for one night and booked my Isla Ballestas trip when I checked in. The reception was quick and easy. Arrived pretty late and had the room ready right away and was very helpful if you have questions.... More

Fantastic international atmosphere. Great location. Hot water in shared bathrooms and reliable wi-fi in the common area. The only downside was the noise due to the ongoing refurbishment on the patio. No breakfast :(

The hostel is spacious and recently built/refurbished. There is a big communal lounge/sun area and a kitchen. The owners speak good English, especially Alberto, who is also very helpful - even for things like buses where there is nothing in it for him. My room and overall stay were great.

The matrimonial room was not great and even though there were lots of nice people in the hostel, the environment of the hostel is very poor and dull. Consider staying somewhere if you want to a cool place, not a dull looking one.

I stayed there 2 nights, the room and the whole place was really clean. The staff super kind, especially lidia whom organized all the tours for us. Also on my way to huacachina I left my jacket on the bus and she had someone bringing it to my hostel there. Very nice of her!
