Hostel prices are a lot more expensive in San Pedro than most other places in Chile. We chose Iquisa because it was the cheapest. Part if the reason for this I guess is that the hostal is situated a few minutes walk outside of the tourist centre of the town. This wasn't much of a problem though as if the owner was around he'd happily drop us in town if he was heading that way.
The family that ran the place were very friendly. The women didn't speak English but we could get by with our limited Spanish.
We booked a 4-bed dorm but for the first night we had to stay in the 6-bed dorm which wasn't a problem as we had the room to ourselves. The problem was the inconsiderate guests who talked loudly right outside our room all night.
The next night we moved into the 4-bed dorm but this room was tiny, had no window and no lockers.
Breakfast is not included but there is a kitchen with a fridge and there's a local store at the end if the street.More
