It is maybe redundant to post yet another positive review but the people who run this place are so nice that I could not stop myself from piling on. And, my room is great. The Hostel is in a pretty quiet area but an easy walk to the center. Be sure to reserve on their web page. The respond promptly....

We stayed here for 3 nights in the Elqui Valley whilst doing all the tourist stuff. It's actually quite an interesting impressive B & B run by the lovely Teresa. Very central location location for Vicuña and private parking at the rear for cars and bikes. There are 10 high-ceilinged rooms around a central courtyard in a lovely okd house...

Señora Teresa took good care to make me feel right at home. My room was spotless, the inner courtyard a marvelous place to sit and see the sky (or at night the stars!), and the breakfast was ample and good. She did not even mind that I came home after midnight at the observatories. I found my clothes washed and...

We wandered into Vicuña and happened to benefit from someone canceling last minute on the Del Pangue observatory, so we jumped on that with one problem......most of our stuff was back at La Serena and our tour wasn't going to get back to Vicuña until well after 2 AM. We wandered down to Valle Hermoso and she had one room...

We stayed 3 nights over new year party 2017. The rooms are clean and the personal is very kind. They speak only spanish. The breakfast is delicious with good bread, fresh fruits, marmalade, cheese, sausage, omelette :-) I recommend this hostel.

We stayed there for 3 nights. It is a lovely colonial house with an open inner courtyard. The room was big and spotless, and the bed was very comfortable. I was sick and could rest well. Breakfast was fine, with fresh fruit and omelette, I'd add some juice and fresh coffee, only instant was available. I also think that breakfast...

The hostal Valle Hermoso is in a colonial house with a small patio with a small stone fountain in the middle, very clean, wonderful breakfast and a lovely, very helpful owner. 5 min from Plaza de Armas. Great value for money

This hostel is like an oasis with delicious breakfast with homemade jams! The indoor patio is the perfect spot to relax after a biking trip through the valley. The rooms are spacious and very clean. Lucia, the owner is charming and extremely helpful. We originally planed to stay one night, ended up spending 3.

This was a very pleasant stay. The patio is really nice and full of light. The room (a single room for 16000) was fine, everything you need! It's really quiet at night, which I loved. On Saturday some bar in the area had really loud music though, but with earplugs this didn't bother me. The breakfast is great! One of...

... and host. The breakfast is not buffet style but freshly prepared in this carefully kept mansion where the rooms line around a courtyard which offers a very Zen atmosphere while the overall style has not compromised the colonial heritage of the building. Location is just three blocks away from the main plaza along the street where most of the...

“I expected a hostel might be noisy but it wasn't at all. Tucked in a quiet spot near the center of town but with little vehicular traffic.”

“Make room inquires via their website. We were on the street side, but there was no traffic or noise at night.”

“If you're a light sleeper, try to get an internal room (one with no windows). This way, if someone drives by with a loud vehicle you're not awakened...not that there's much traffic in this small town.”
