Great hostel! Comfortable beds, clean bathrooms and hot showers (probably the best shower we had in SA). The owner was very nice but didn't speak much English. We wanted to visit the Mamalluca observatory and he called them about the tour. Unfortunately the observatory cancelled the tour as the sky was going to be overcast (good that the tell you in advance though!). The kitchen was well equipped and hostel located close to a supermarket. Very good value for money.
We arrived 5 am and woke the owner up. But anyway he allowed to check in and get the room. Staff were friendly.

Nice couple running the hostel, but I suggest it for a more independent traveller, or someone coming in a group with plans already arranged - it seems like a quieter hostel, and La Serena is a less active destination than Santiago or San Pedro, for example.
It was perfectly fine for one nights stay. We didn't get there til 2am and were still able to check in which was awesome! Receptionist couldn't speak any English but we managed to get by.
I thought Ms. Elizabeth the owner was really helpful and she booked my trip to the Mamalucca Observatory. She gave tips on things to do and where to go. The hostel is a 20 minute walk from the water and from the bus station. it is close to several supermarkets and restaurants in the center of town.
Honestly? I couldn't find the place. Just couldn't.
