“Hostal without atmosphere”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

We stayed for five nights. A double room without private facilities costs 25'000 pesos. This seems to be a normal price in San Pedro. There was no discount for five nights. I can only confirm that one lady (Alicia) was always in a bad mood. The atmosphere mentioned in the Lonely Planet is definately nowhere to be found. The rooms are very small and cramped and there are only small windows. The courtyard is not well maintained and everywhere is garbage, there are no hammocks and nothing green, just concrete and dust. At least, there were a few tables. The bathroom has no toilet paper or soap. Hot water almost always works, but it is difficult to regulate the temperature. No breakfast and no towels were provided. The only positive aspect was, that the bathrooms were always cleaned properly.

The lady always in bad mood and reluctant to answer questions, (we never found the family friendly atmosphère that the lonely mentionner...) otherwise very good hostal. Quite cheap for the extraordinary expensive san pedro. Clean and big room. Could provide towel...

I stayed for one night. The place is under construction and the only service person does not speak any other language than (very Chilean) Spanish. The room looks rather run down. The atmosphere mentioned in the Lonely Planet is nowhere to be found.
