Great location in Iquique, close to some good restaurants and one street from the beach. Room was great but hot water not very plentiful for showers. Everything else was wonderful. The ocean view from our private room entry was a lovely teaser to explore. Staff very friendly and helpful for non speaking spanish Australians.

We really enjoyed our stay in Backpackers hostel. Best kitchen we had in a hostel, big lockers and soft beds. The showers were really cold. The atmosphere was good, we joined the bbq (salads, meat etc) and watched Chile-Germany in the yard with almost everyone in the hostel. Staff was friendly and helpfull. The location was near the beach but a bit far from the center and the bus terminal. Would recommend everybody.

One of the best hostels in the world! The atmosphere is wonderful. The location could not be better, just a few steps from a fantastic beach. I have been in so many hostels around the world, and this ones is great!

Huge kitchen. A lot of people use it and great way to cook something different to "pollo con arroz". The dorm was big and pretty clean. The bathroom wasn't the cleanest but they were hot showers. The outside area and the coffee is cozy. WIFI is fast. You can't lock the toilet in the ladies restroom. Strange guests in the hostel. You have to pay for the luggage storage and in the end it's so packed that you have to search for your backpack under all the others for 10 minutes.

Yeah, the kitchen closure overnight is kind of annoying. With 9 hours to tidy it every night, you think it would be cleaner. Other than that, good place. I love how they keep the doors open all the time to get that cool sea beeze. But, the price you pay is too many bugs get inside. Common area, patios and balconies are really well designed, good for relaxing to the sounds (or sight, if you're on the right balcony) of the ocean. Private rooms are quite cheap, recommend over dorms.

Overall a good, fun atmosphere right on the beach. The kitchen is a bit dirty but lots of space and equipment. The dorms are dirty, cockroaches and spiders in the lockers. Awesome views of the beach and an economic choice considering the other options. The receptionists were very friendly and nice although not very helpful. Don't do laundry here, it took three days to get back and it was still wet.

Very clean, friendly hostel just a short walk from the beach and supermarket! Great communal areas and kitchen, which are all really clean! Only negatives are that they could do with having some free coffee and tea in the morning for the price paid! And the wifi is a bit slow in the reception area!

I was planning on staying 2 nights, ended up staying there 2 weeks. Great hostel, perfect location next to the beach! No breakfast but there's a big kitchen. The little rooftop with view on the ocean is amazing. Would come back for sure!

Great location for the beach and short walk to centre of town. Good kitchen with facilities for cooking, good space for food storage. Friendly staff. Bed comfortable. Bathrooms ok, little small and water can be hot if you are quick in the shower and don't leave it until too late in the day or first thing in the morning.
