Hostal Jofre
Reviewed July 6, 2006

Antonio is a great host!!! This hostal is fantastic. The rooms are
super clean. When you enter, an immaculate tile floor extends through
the entire area which makes walking around a pleasure. We had a
"dormitorio" style room which was right next to the shared bath, but you can
have a room with private bath. Since it was winter (end of June), we had
the place almost to ourselves except for several other people who
pleasantly chatted in the dining area some nights. Breakfast was ready for
us when we awoke even without asking. Antonio, the owner, always is
scurrying about and offering help whenever you need it. I am leaving
late tonight, but he is letting me leave my bags here until 9:00 p.m. so
that I can catch the late bus in the nearby terminal. If you want to
know anything else, please write me.

Internet is free for 20 minutes per day on their computer. La Serena, incidentally,
is a very nice, safe town also with an active plaza and nightlife. I can not say enough about how excellent this has been!

Antonio Jofre is the owner of this beautiful hostel in La Serena. The rooms are very nice and they have hot showers. Antonio gives you good advice about tours and he helps you in many ways. The garden is a nice place to relax.
You can use the kitchen and internet for free!

Got a Lonely Planet recommendation. The current price for a double room is 14000 Pesos (in Sept 2005, maybe more in the summer). He rented the room to me for 8000 Pesos because I travelled alone. The hostel is located between the City Center (Plaza de Armas) and the bus terminal, so you can walk both ways and don't need a taxi. Mr. Jofre was a very nice person who showed a lot of hospitality. The rooms are clean and have a bath of their own, although they are a little chilly. Breakfast is included, although hungry people might ask for more.

Definitely worth the LP recommendation. Excellent relation between price and quality.
