“Chill out in La Serena”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2012

Lovely hostal with rooms which surround a lovely patio with loads of space for chilling out. The hostal is about a (pleasant) 10 minute walk to the centre and (very helpfully) a short walk from the bus station (easily done while carrying rucksacks).

Staff were friendly and smiley with English spoken by one of them. Breakfasts were a bonus and included eggs - would have been nice to have some cereal or fruit offered but that's pretty standard for Chile.

Rooms were basic but practical and the shared bathrooms were kept really clean.

The guys were really helpful when we had to check out but needed somewhere to leave our bags and they were more than happy to let us use the shower after we'd checked out and before we had to catch a late bus. Much appreciated!! Thanks.

Came here after the Hostal el Punto next door cocked up our booking. We had a private room but had a shared bathroom which is something we are not used to. However, as the rooms to bathroom ratio was good it was not a problem. Free tea, coffee and internet, a very helpful lady in charge and at only 16000 pesos a night this was excellent value. We ate dinner at the Congria del Pirata in town – an excellent meal.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2009

Las Luces is a really lovely place, good location to the centres and near the bus terminal. The family are lovely. Breakfast can be included and it is worth it, and you can a different breakfast every day (not just bread and jam!) Free internet, shared bathrooms with hot water (which get cleaned really regularly), cable tele, near shops/amenities. You dont get a front door key though, so you have to wake up the family if you party late - but they dont mind. Good garden spaces. And you can use the clean large kitchen.
Lovely lovely place, and cheaper than the other places along the same road.
