It seems they've tried to get as many beds in to as many rooms as possible. The dorms were really cramped and not big enough to hold 8 beds meaning there was not enough space for bags. Also, there weren't enough bathrooms or toilets, and they were in the same cubicle, meaning the toilets were wet or the showers smelt from the person next to you. The communal spaces, however, were really nice, a good kitchen, a decent breakfast from the inhouse cafe and a good spot.

The hostel with its huge common area and awesome balconies/rooftop terrace has a great vibe and it's easy to meet other travelers. The kitchen is big and well-equipped (no oil though!!) and the location couldn't be better: only 20m to the beach. The only downside: the bathrooms SUCK!!!! only two showers for girls (of which only one door closes), the drain is clogged, no hooks/shelves to put your stuff or even hang a plastic bag and you cannot close the tap -> water's running day and night

Very noisy and hot double room. A fan would make it more comfortable. Showers are not really clean. Rest is okay.

One of the best hostels in my south america trip. Great location across the road from the beach. Large communal areas. Clean. Friendly staff. Good wifi. Cute cafe adjoined. Walking distance to big supermarket. 30 mins walk along the ocean to town centre. Only two negatives, beds a bit lumpy. And the showers are sort of over the toilets. But those are minor in the scheme of things

The location is beyond excellent, right at the beach and a big supermarket 5 minutes away. You will need a taxi from the bus terminal but was not too expensive at 3000 clp. This hostel and town is easy to get stuck in, beware! The hostel is nice, comfortable and doesnot need to be perfect as you have all day sun and the beach so near. If you go to iquique come here!

Great location, 2 minutes from the fantastic beach! There is not a great deal to do in Iquique, but this hostel kept me there for 4 nights more than I planned! Nice communal areas, pool table etc. Awesome balcony on the roof as well with a great view of the city and beach. Highly recommend, but I warn you, it'll be difficult to leave!

A lot of people there, but ok anyway, kitchen ok (hard to find a knife though, too much people i guess), not enough shower i think and not any hot water left at 9am (too much people i guess again) even if they say there are solar pannels and at 9am the sun is shining.. Good view from the dorm terrace. One of the men on the dorm told me he could not sleep because of the noise (there is a bar in the hostel so a lot of people drink at night) but i had no problem..
