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.


Loved our stay here! Great place to stay, very helpful with anything you need and allow you to stay the entire day after you've checked out and use the facilities. We arrived at 4am and they were there waiting and we were set to leave at 10 pm on our check out day and they let us store everything there all day and shower that night. Would definitely go back!

There was 1 nice staffmember, the rest was rude and more importantly: never there. Whenever we (me and a couple, all the guests at that time) had questions, they were nowhere to be found. At times I had to go outside, ring the doorbell and finally someone would appear, annoyed because they were watching tv. Not much better then the time I had to wait outside for 20 minutes because they went out to get groceries. When asked for help planning activities; they didn't even have a map of the city.
