Pros: good shower, hot and with decent pressure, one of the staff members (the Dutch girl) was really nice and trying to help me with my booking my tours. Dorm is spacious with a big locker, plugs and bedsite light. Cons: they make you pay for everything. I arrived early on the day of checkin and had to pay for my breakfast, but only got half of what was advertised. Zero atmosphere. More for surfer guys than for people travelling by themselves. Good for one night but nothing more.

Really bad showers (men's). Only two shower stalls had curtains, and of those, only one had a shower head. Nowhere to put your clothes or towel. Water cycles between cold and hot (mostly cold). Breakfast is nice with great coffee but not self serve so I was still a little hungry. Dorm was nice with personal locker, light and power point/socket/outlet. Staff were very nice.

The best hostel in Arica, definitely. Best free breakfast, best location, cool staff, cool atmosphere! And they offer you surf lessons at a very cheap rate also!

It's a really nice hostel in a really good location. It's very quiet though and there's no much atmosphere in there. If you're into surfing you should be wary of the fella they bring you to rent surf boards. He's very expensive and only brought us for a half a day. He was supposed to bring us after lunch again but stopped answering his phone and we never saw him again. My advice is to go to someone else on the beach who are half the price.

Run down hostel that only vaguely resembles the photographs. The staff were friendly and as helpful as they cold be with limited resources.
