My wife and I spent a couple of nights here and would highly recommend it. The location is ideal: close to the main plaza but not too close. The hostel is colonial style with rooms looking out over a lovely courtyard. It is reasonably priced and the service was friendly and attentive. In truth it felt much more like a... More

A really nice hostal with good service and a tasty breakfast. The staff is friendly, attentive and helpfull. The rooms are clean, spacious and there is a nice patio. The owner is always in for a chat and gives good advice.

We were three people, two stayed in a double and one in a single. We felt welcome from the minute we first arrived. The breakfast was incredible, and the protected parking was just icing on the cake. We felt right at home, and felt a tinge of sadness when we had to leave. If you can, you should stay here!

I arrived early in the morning and was able to get in my room right away. Lucia greeted me after I put my things down and gave me a great itinerary for my day. She also helped me book a great star gazing tour! Breakfast was very good and the courtyard is the perfect place to relax. Definitely recommend!

I was a bit skeptical about the hostel experience but there weren't a lot of accomodations in this little town and this place was recommended by the operators of the Observatorio del Pangue. I was able to get a private room with ensuite bath for about $20. The owner was extremely helpful in suggesting places to eat, etc. The building... More

Staying here was a highlight of our 8 month trip. The hostess Lucia was incredibly warm and attentive. She made us feel welcome and gave us some great recommendations of things to see and do in the area that we never would have discovered ourselves. The house is lovely and full of history, the sun-drenched courtyard is beautiful and the... More

This was such a wonderful place. The host, Lucia, brings you in like family and really tries to get a feel for your interests when making recommendations for area activities. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. The rooms are very cozy, but the central open air courtyard is where you'll find the wi-fi signal, and it's great for... More

Very friendly and helpful owners, comfortable and clean bedrooms, good breakfast (loved the jam). The only downside was the shower--alternated between boiling hot/freezing cold--but this is a common problem in many places I've stayed in Chile.

The positive reviews are all accurate. The building is a traditional home with the bedrooms all leading off from a central courtyard that is open to the stars. Rooms are clean and the hospitality is evident from the first moment. Breakfast is excellent and the location is 5 minutes walking to the town center. It is also only 2 minutes... More

Lucia is an great host - friendly and passionate about the area. Vicuña is nice and an excellent place to explore Valle del elqui. i would have no trouble recommending people here at all. I really enjoyed it and found the breakfast quite good, fresh fruit, jam, avocado, cheese and ham. go out for coffee if it's important to you
