Very far from the centro. If u r a female travelling alone,, consider that at night there are only a few street lights and walking dark sketchy streets for 15 mins alone may be scary. Also most tours end around 8:30 when the sun starts to set. To go back when there.s still sun, u would have to cancel eating dinner at a restaurant. Plus, it wasnt cheaper at all compared to others close to the center.

Nice place to stay considering the price. They offer the chance to book the tours which makes it easier. Only problem the hot water doesn't really work. Wifi connection slow but work most of the time. Would recommend the host to spend few days in San Pedro.

Organised excursions were good. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The hostel is clean enough, (dust from the sand) and the hostel accommodation is lovely. Enough space, fire place swimming pool etc. wifi was pretty good for chile. Because you are near the desert there is less water and most of the time the water was coold

Everything is expensive in san pedro, but a good breakfast is essencial for me in a hostel. Otherwise they have a good kitchen and a good escheme for the fridge. What could be beter was the wifi and the hot shower, frequently we have to turn off and turn on again, both of then to work. But the place is great and the people are very nice.

Great staff, location is fine. Not very comfortable for hanging out. The furniture needs to be replaced and the showers could be better. Pretty clean though.

We had a room of 6 and it was disgusting. The roof was dirty and it was too small. There's not enough of toilet for the hostel, internet wasn't good and people stole our food everyday. Not my best stay in an hostel. But, the terrace is really nice!

I was not too amused waking up in the night and had a cat in my bad... But all in all it was a calm hostel.

Nice no-nonsense hostel. Lives up to its name; really good for backpackers (don´t expect highclass tourism in San Pedro anyway). Warm shower a bit unreliable. WiFi generally suitable for light surfin, but excellent for a desert. Despite the insructory e-mail sent by the Hostel, it is hard to find for the first time as there is no clear indication of the hostel whilst standing in front of it; paint the door ;-)

Booked the night but didn't end up staying as we were moving on from San Pedro. Staff allowed us to use the facilities and charge us for the night. Clean and relaxed hostel.

This hostel is fine and probably one of the cheaper in San Pedro. The wifi was really good. Not all the bathrooms were working and we had to ask the staff to re-stock the toilet paper on several occasions.

The doors to your rooms can be opened with a butter knife.. And they are not all the special. But the beds are good, the hammocks are life savers and even the pool is great to cool you down on a hot day. Kitchen is fully loaded with most things you need and if you feel the need you can crack up a BBQ or a campfire and sit round and have a few drinks.. There is not all that much going on at the hostel but it's not bad for what it is..

Hostel is a little hidden away,

Just like San Pedro, this hostel is bad value for money. Room was very small, door didn't close very good and bathroom was not very clean. On the other hand, staff was quite nice and atmosphere was good. Bonfire at night is a big plus.

That hostel is incredible, very rustic but at the same time very comfortable, and the the staff is really nice! The only problem is that the wifi connection is not very good, I got some problems a few times to connect and stay connected. But besides that, everything else is great

I booked a room with 2 beds, but we only got one bed. The most frustrating part was, however, the discussions with the staff as they tried to convince us, that we were in the wrong. We took the room for a night, it was very small and cold. We both had a cold the next day. Then we moved.

Hi, you made a booking for a Basic Double Bed Private w/ Shared Bathroom, and the web site says "this room has 1 MATRIMONIAL (COUPLES) BED (FOR TWO PEOPLE)", so, for sure is not our mistake. In November we have 32 celcius degrees during the day and 25 celcius degrees at night, that is why this room have a fan and not a heater! We are happy you found a good place for you.

Good hostel- really not far from the center, do not worry. Great outside area with hammocks and sun beds and pool (a tub). I would recommend looking in town for better deals on tours. Overall really pleasant stay. Staff were friendly. Beware of the 12am lights out rule- not a deal breaker but funny to watch the attempts at staying up (not hard)
