A really good hostel! when I arrived on the early morning bus they checked me in so that I could sleep. The hostel is super conveniently located, kitchen is fab and the staff are helpful with questions. it's not the rowdiest place but its not the most popular travel location either. I recommend staying here in Iquique


One of the best hostels I have been.. The best location in Iquique.


Right across from the beach and ten minutes from the supermarket. The kitchen is amazing and always kept very clean. Most of the staff are really friendly and make you feel welcomed. They have one girl there who speaks English and German and she is very helpful. Falling asleep hearing the ocean every night was really wonderful. I had a problem to do with the hostel and they immediately dealt with it. Could use more showers and toilets throughout especially if the hostel is full of people.


Good bar, nice staff. Kitchen gets a bit crowded, but the facilities a very good and clean! The bar is nice, and it seemed that it is a bit of a party Hostel, so it can be a bit noisy, but did not annoy us at all.


Just recommend for infrastructure and location. The staff does not have the skills to solve problems for guests. The cleanlinness is not good, there are animals (dog) inside the hostel sharing at meal times.

Mr. Pablo Castro. As you know, the paragliding problem was solved in 10 minutes. As we told you is not our fault that the paragliding company didn´t answer the phone but inmediately we called another company and they came to pick you up. We also made a discount to your bill for that inconvenience. The dog has been part of the hostel for more than 10 years, sorry if it bothered you.


Great hostel!! Breakfast is not included but make sure to try the coffee place attached to it.


Too noisy at night. No hot water in the shower. Not enough light in the rooms to see what you're doing (sorting through luggate, etc). Not all the staff are friendly. Unreliable internet.

This is a good hostel with a good atmosphere. The kitchen and communal facilities are great. The location is perfect (right next to the beach). The only bad things are that the dorms are quite small and there's not much space. Also, if you have a shower in the evening, the water may be cold.


Very good and extremely clean hostel. I very much enjoyed my stay there.


Great little hostel with a great atmosphere... Feels more like staying at your mate's house who happens to live right next to the beach. Great place to go to if you're into surfing. Definitely would back!


The beds are comfy but the showers are cold! The staff are really nice and you can organise surf lessons from reception.


Amazing to have a duvet and place was very clean. Offered a great kitchen to allow you to save money and cook yourself. However the night life was none existent.


The hostel is nice, greate kitchen! But it closes at 22 and then you can't go inside there anymore.. The securetyguy at night is also really strikt, so if he does not like you, you can get fast in truble ore sendt to bed. But if you want ti sleep, no problem!
