The only problem was that they play loud music all night and early in the morning, then again I never asked them to turn it down. Fun and friendly staff and awesome place to hang out!

Great location, right beside the beach and a few nice restaurants


One of the best hostels Ive stayed at. You can really tell that have their stuff figured out. Close to the beach and they have a nice outdoor shower to rinse of your suit after some shredding of the chilean gnar. Big lockers, good beds, clean restrooms, good vibes, good food and beer. Definitely recommend.


Nothing to complain about. Maybe the night was a little bit cold and I couldn't close the window, but once you get under the cover, everything is fine. The shower wasn't warm, though... at all!


Kitchen facilities were very good and the hostel was clean. Hostel has a good ping pong table and a pool table (not such a good table). Close to the beach front. Overall a good hostel to stay at in Iquique.


Such a great and social place. Best hostel in iquique


Really nice place. A fully equipped kitchen, many cozy tables both inside and outside. Good breakfast. We loved our stay in the double room!


Very beautifull and clean hostel. Nice area to sit outside. The hostel is also near the beach. I really enjoyed my stay. I planned to stay one night and ended up with three!


Amazing location, and comfortable rooms. However the price was a little high for a basic room in a hostel.


Excellent kitchen, very helpful staff, nice location and very near to supermarket. Communal bathrooms were decent enough although our double bedroom could have done with a bit of work. Overall a decent hostel.


The nicest hostel I've stayed in during my 6 month travels in South America. Very clean and new! Spacious. Lots of great areas to hang out. Awesome and spacious kitchen. Great location ... 5 minutes from the beach. 10 minutes from a grocery store. Only complaint is that there was never warm water in the showers. But I'd definitely recommend this hostel.


Surfer orientated hostel across the road from the beach. Short walk to a shopping market and Mercado Central.


Well run hostel, helpful staff and just across the road from the beach.


Perfect for Surfers, just 1 minute away from the beach! Nice Location, nice people. cheap price! They organize paraglyding, surfingclass and sandboarding for you!


This hostel is close to the beach and is about a 20 minute walk from the town centre. The staff are English speaking and friendly and the facilities here are good. There is a spacious kitchen for guest use and plenty of communal areas to chill out downstairs. There is a computer for guest use and a TV to watch movies. The dorms are spacious and comfortable and the bathrooms are clean and there`s hot water for showers. You will need to get a taxi to get here from the bus station.


One of the better hostels around Chile, clean, friendly and relaxed, so we stayed longer then planed.
