Although the Hostal has a very high Ranking, it has a few negativ aspects. First of all the Staff, in the Beginning very friendly, but when a problem arises, they get rude and even lie to you. One is the Internet, it offen crashes in the hostel, and till they fix it it may take 24h - like in our case. Another one is the laundry, they lit a fire EVERY evening and when u wanna sit outside, all your clothes smell. And the clothes they wash for u, smell as well, because they dry them outside.
There were no hangers in the bedroom, showers were often non functioning, the bathroom doors were always closed from inside, wifi did not work in the second bedroom area ol(and its pretty slow when working). Atmosphere is good specially when the fire is lit in cold nights. Recommendable for those who searches for low profile stay and time to enjoy the hostel.
The hostel and the staff was amazing and very helpful. They looked professional in their roles: they organized the trips very efficiently and helped to solve any problems. The location is a bit out of town, but since the whole town can be reached in 10 minutes, it does not really matter. The WiFi was someone slow, that could be a little bit faster. Cleanliness was also perfect, they cleaned the common areas every day.
Nice for a few days. The rooms are really tiny but the atmosphere in the hostal was good.we had a great time there.they have a pool :-) and of course hangmates. We had warm water and the bathrooms were clean. Negative was that they had problems with the internet connections. So it wasnt working for the hole day but maybe its an lokal problem
A little out of town (5-10 mins walk), but excellent staff and atmosphere. Booked several tours through hostel all of excellent quality and reasonably priced. Poor water pressure in showers (I think fairly typical for San Pedro) and only warm in the mornings. No included breakfast but good kitchen facilities. Rooms clean and warm at night.
The hostel is basic, but provides what is necessary. The staff are very friendly, helpful and have a good knowledge about the activities that are available around San Pedro Atacama. There are also often meals cooked at the hostel, which help people to meet other people staying at the hostel, and to mix.
Def the cleanest hostel I stayed in, staff cleaned the bathrooms multiple times a day. Didn't like the large amount of cats though walking around everywhere. Very practical that the hostel serves food every night if you don't feel like going out/cooking. Although kitchen was pretty well equipped.
Cozy common areas; real backpacker feeling at hostel; at nights bar with fireplace
