“Good price, amazing service!”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

This hostel was excellent. I arrived early and the host quickly had my room prepared. The room had a flat screen TV with cable and separate bathroom. There was also a small refrigerator which came in handy. It was impeccably clean. The cleaning staff even tidied my stuff a bit! Breakfast of a sandwich, cookies and refreshments is offered.

Beyond the facility itself, the staff went out of their way to ensure that I was comfortable. One of the hosts speaks English fluently and provided me with directions, recommendations and helped me with my car rental (first searching for cheaper deals and ultimately landing me a free half day).

I totally recommend this hostel: clean, fresh and really cheap for Antofagasta (very expensive city!) and (good) breakfast included. I think It is also situated in the safest part of the city.
I got some transport's issue to go to an observatory and Gonzalo, the owner,
perfect English-speaker and very nice person, helps me the best he cans and
gives a lot of phone call to find a solution.
He also helps me to find facilities and recommend me good restaurants.
Definitively a good experience!

Dear Roland S,
We are very happy that your stay with us was as nice as you say.
We were wondering how your trip to Paranal went. Hopefully, everything went great for you on the observatory, and also on your return to San Pedro.

PS: Thank you again for the French-English translation ;)

We really enjoyed our stay at Hostal 1127. The hostal is unmarked (just the street number) and the street it's on may seem a little sketchy at first, but you're in the right place! They immediately made all of us feel welcome and at home, including our dog. Seriously the most kind and genuine hosts we've had thus far in South America! The rooms are clean and comfortable, with hot water, WiFi, and televisions. As other reviewers note, breakfast is included, and the family is super helpful with recommendations on where to eat in the neighborhood. Be aware that on Sundays, the majority of restaurants and businesses are closed, but they can point you in the right direction to find a place to eat. There is one parking space inside the property, and they invited us to park inside on the second night of our stay when the space opened up. But street parking was easy to find.

Room Tip: Rooms that don't face the street are quieter.

We spent three nights at Hostal 1127 and were received warmly by Gonzalo. This family-run hostal caters to locals and foreigners alike and is centrally located walking distance to the downtown, markets, restaurants and shore avenue. The hostal is quiet and tranquil, though the usual street noise can carry through if you're in a room on the front. The neighborhood is pretty quiet for such a central location.

Our hosts were very helpful with maps, car rental advice and tips on getting around. My husband and I are both fluent in Spanish, but Gonzalo speaks English with guests from all over. We had a double bed with private bath on the second floor. If you travel to Antofagasta you will know that water pressure in the dessert is not great - for obvious reasons. But we were comfortable and content with our showers and overall room. Plenty of storage, great cleaning on a daily basis and bright, airy windows.

Breakfast is served each morning and is the typical Chilean fare, but Gonzalo and his father warm the bread, cheese and ham, which is served with juice and tea/coffee. We were welcome to use the kitchen and provided utensils and dishes for our own cooking. We were made to feel very much at home. ¡Muchísimas gracias Gonzalo y familia!

We stayed for 2 nights and really enjoyed our time here. Gonzalo is very friendly and went out of his way to help us with our further travel plans in Chile. The room was extremely clean and very comfortable. Good internet connection and a huge TV in the room were both bonuses. I would definitely recommend staying here if travelling to Antofagasta.

Laura & David,
Much much apreciated for your Review. You were also such a lovely couple! :D
It was no badder at all to walk you to the bus agency... It was rather nice. And like I told you, I needed it to go there anyway.

Hope your stay in Taltal was nice and quiet... and also the rest of your trip.

Didnt actually stay here as when we arrived hostal was fully booked, but the owner was very helpful in calling other hotels in the area to see if any had vacancy and allowing us to store our luggage while we walked around.
