Overall a pretty good hostel. Clean, spacious, good kitchen, friendly staff who can book you on many excursions. Wish they had more outlets in the room. It is expensive though - no breakfast and they have a number of rules / fees for many things (but don't seem to enforce them all) - like changing beds or STORING LUGGAGE. You can pay with credit card, but there is a fee. Iquique in general is expensive; this is a good option for here. Great staff!

A lovely place to chill, there is loads of communal space both inside and out. The kitchen is large, well equipped, and spotless. During high season this place is probably a party hostel as it has it's own bar, however whilst we were there it had a relaxed atmosphere. Two moans: pretty pricey for the room size, and locking the kitchen from 11 is a real pain! Finally, make sure you go paragliding, it's quality and the instructors are lovely.

Really nice hostel. My dorm had bedbugs, but the staff handled it really well, took it seriously and had the room fumigated immediately. I would stay here again.

Hip backpackers Hostel with easy, great access to Cavancha Beach. The hostel had a great kitchen for personal use. Unfortunately, the bathrooms were disgusting. Hostel owners to pay more attention to cleaning shared bathrooms more than once per day with the amount of guests using the facilities. Only one sink worked during stay. Staff were knowledgeable about renting bikes, paragliding and local amenities.

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

Loved it here. Laid back vibe, barbecues, met loads of lovely people. Right on the beach front so you can traipse over any time you want. Near the supermarket. Toilet and shower combo a little eccentric but does the job. Did paragliding through the hostel which was great. Also did the Humberstone tour through them: they didn't mention it would all be in Spanish but I could JUST about understand with my school girl Spanish!

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