When we checked into Aji Verde we didn't receive a tour, they didn't have any maps, the staff were very rarely at reception and seemed more interested in socialising than working. The room by the front door is the worst for noise, between outside, the doorbell ringing every 2 seconds and the staff at reception area talking and playing music loudly at night. Beds were lumpy, breakfast was poor and the kitchen was quite messy. There are nicer places to stay in la Serena. Location is the best thing
Good hostel to meet travelers, lots of common areas, well located. They do not have a city map, very basic breakfast, it's not particularity clean (as we left they were fumigating one of the dorms for bed bugs), staff partied loudly well into the night. Average...
Best staff ever. Herman and "maddie" ( pronunciation??) we so helpful and friendly. Nothing was a problem for them and we felt really at home there. Great social atmosphere and 3 different common areas to relax and hang out it. Loved our stay.
Aji Verde was truly a fantastic experience. The facility provided everything needed for a comfortable night and a delicious breakfast. The showers had warm water and the hostel's location was quite central in La Serena. Above all, I would like to applaud Germán Blanchard for being unbelievably helpful in helping us find things to do around La Serena and essentially organizing our entire weekend. Without his help our stay in La Serena would not have been nearly as enjoyable.
The hostel is close to the town centre, and makes a good base for exploring. The rooms are clean and comfortable, though the place could do with more bathrooms. Lots of common areas and a well-equipped kitchen. The hostel had a good atmosphere when I was there. Oh, and they have a SNES.
