The staff were nice, the place was clean, and the location not bad (though definitely hard to find at first), and shower had hot water. However, I stayed in a cramped 4-bed dorm on a terrible bed. It was hard to get up to the top bunk, I could feel the mattress springs poking me, and the ceiling was so low I'd bump my head on the ceiling if I sat up. There are three cats running all over the place, so people with allergies should be aware. No breakfast apart from self-serve tea/coffee.
We happened to be here for Chile v Bolivia during the Copa America. They had a huge BBQ with free food and drinks. It was a great night! Very nice staff and a decent bike rental service.
10-15mn to the main street of San Pedro, so a little far away from the center. The bed near the kitchen are noisy and it's disadvantage for early wake up. Be careful : the get south discount is not compatible with Hostelworld booking.
Excellent and helpful staff who go out of their way to create a friendly, relaxed and fun environment for all.
A bit outside of town center, but everything is within comfortable walking distance. Really nice accommodations with friendly and helpful staff and plenty of common areas to share time with fellow travelers.
Comfortable bed. Facilities were good with access to three kitchens, computer and stable wifi. Staff was helpful. The only problem would be it can be difficult to find the hostel at first. Perhaps a little pricey but overall it has good atmosphere and a nice place to relax.
Friendly staff, small rooms but very comfy beds! Good atmosphere with bonfire in the evenings. Located a few minutes outside of town but worth a stay anyway.
When I stayed here, there was 2 other people here. No atmosphere at all really. I think if they reduce their prices it will be more worth staying here as oppose to other more central hostels for better value and price. My bed was comfortable.
The good: We had a nice room in a house seperate from the main hostel that felt like a private house. The kitchen facilities were well equipped and functional, we even had a sharp knife ! The front desk staff was very helpful and friendly. The bad: WIFI barely worked, no computers, expensive for what it was, cold water in the showers. Cleaning lady was a piece of work, no secure lock up for passports and cash.
Nice hostel in the lovely San Pedro! Perfect location to star gaze and there are also tours through the hostel at a reasonable price. About a 10 minute walk from the bus terminal and about 15 minutes to the downtown. Would recommend...
A little bit out of the centre of town, but it wasn´t a problem. No breakfast but a nice enough hostel, did the job.
No electricity in our room or bathroom, no wifi, cats pissing over the furniture and staff stealing from the rooms .... What more can I say. DO NOT BOOK HERE
Quite a basic hostel. Cheapish by San Pedro standards (which is still quite expensive) but still not great value for money. No breakfast and a bit rough around the edges. Not a lot of other options in San Pedro though unfortunately.
Cool hostel, nice atmosphere, close to bus terminal and town. Easy to organise tours from hostel - really enjoyed sandboarding and Uyuni tour. Can rent bikes too. Clean. Lots of bathrooms. Tea coffee in a.m.
This was such a great, friendly, clean hostel that I stayed for longer - staff were so knowledgable about all the tours and everyone we booked through them was excellent - thanks :)
Place was fine for somewhere to stay while doing trips around San Pedro. Showers were cold most of the time though. Staff didn't seem very organised, we had left our laundry with them to find the bags the next day still left in the same spot and hadn't been touched, let alone washed. Slightly unprofessional. Other than that is was ok.
Very nice and relaxed hostel. The kitchen is well equipped, there are hammocks, a ping pong table and more than enough bathrooms. The staff are very nice and speak English very well, so they can inform you about all of the trips and book them for you. At night there are usually enough people around to have a chat with and sometimes there is a fire. After midnight, the hostel is very quiet, so you can get a good night sleep. The hostel is located about 5 mins from the city center.
This place is definitely fine. The staff i met was great and super accomodating (apart from grumpy maid). It's decently clean and cheap for San Pedro. Little note on San Pedro. As much as the scenery around the town is fascinating, the town is (became?) a horrendous place. What mass tourism as worst to offer - poor services, expensive... If you can manage to rent a car and stay in villages around, i would recommend doing that. If not, the hostel did feel like a safe haven.
I would never come back to a Loki hostel. There's no wifi, the staff is the worst I have ever seen in a hostel and the cleanliness is very poor.
San Pedro is a very expensive place. The staff here were very helpful. The hostel is no frills, no breakfast, but if you are looking for a quiet place to relax and stay for a longer period, then this place is ideal.
