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.


Great, cozy place to stay in La Serena, close to the city center. The owner was very friendly and helpful with all our questions. Good kitchen facilities, clean and spacious dorms with private lockers and excellent mattresses and with good Wifi connection. Hot showers are only in the morning but that doesn't matter. All in all this is just a great hostel for the budget traveler staying in La Serena.
