+nice atmosphere +always clean bathrooms + toilets -expensive, but hay, you are in San Pedro, every Hostel is expensive there -a bit outside of the town -Don´t book your tours in the Hostel! there charge you much more than when you go and buy your ticket in an agency in town!

We might sell the tours a little bit more expensive then other agencies in the center, but that's because we chose a company for a best price and quality report. We also call every day to confirm the tours and make sure that every thing goes well so then you can enjoy your tours without any bad surprises. But finally, it's up to you!


Very kind people, too noisy for me


It's just a little thing.......if you can't smoke in the dorms ......for obvious reasons,.......then you shouldn't be allowed to smoke just outside the dorm window.......it blows right in!!!!! We all do not smoke or enjoy being next to people who do.

This is a good life lesson for smokers...!


Great atmosphere and common area. Two kitchens fully equipped. Impossible to find without a map, and even then a challenge. Don't stay if you don't like cats. I woke up with one on my pillow! Staff excellent.

Thank you Anna! Good trip!


Nice hostel. It is about as good as it gets in San Pedro. The only minor downside is the location, but luckily San Pedro is a small village and everything is still in walking distance.


Really good and clean hostel with a great athmosphere and helpfull staff (english and spanishspeaking/you can book all relevant tours here). Recommended aswell to single travellers because in the patio you can easily meet other travellers.


Great hostel, very laid back atmosphere. Campfire at night. Hammocks out in the yard. Beers cheap. Wifi slow but I think it's probably more of a problem with the town itself. No free breakfast but 2 kitchens so easy enough to make your own. Would recommend this hostel.

Hey! Thanks for putting the good word on us. Hope you and your buddy keep lovin' chilean landscapes as much as we do. We'll see you in a bit, hopefully! BackPackers San Pedro Hostel Staff


You were so helpful with booking tours and providing information about San Pedro but the barman plays music too early in the morning and the cleaners were banging around in the kitchen at 6am.


Great place to stay while you are in San Pedro. Close to the center. You have a garden to relax, 2 kitchens ( the breakfast is not included) and the dorms are clean. Very helpful staff, and the will make sure you feel like at home ! Bonfire is organized at evenings !


Nice hostel, nice place to chill out outside.


Excellent hostel! the personal was very kind, nice atmosphere.


I really recommend this hostel! Lies on the other side of town compared to all other hostels, but that is the only minus. Staff is great, rooms are fine, but the atmosphere is really good! Bonfire at night, nice music, hammocks, great! I booked all my tours and activities at the hostel and they were all amazing.

Hey: Thanks for the comments. We'll take you suggestion into consideration and we hope the next time you're here, it gets even better! Kind regards BackPackers Hostel Staff


The beds were super comfy and the fireplace is really inviting. There wasn't breakfast, but they made sure we had coffee and tea before we left to a morning tour. The bathrooms were clean and with warm water (what is a great plus in the desert).

Hey guys! Thanks so much for the compliments! The breakfast is one thing we're working on and we hope next time you're at BackPackers Hostel, to fill that need for you. It was nice knowing you BackPackers Hostel Staff


Lovely hostel with a great atmosphere created by the wonderful staff. The trip I booked to uyuni with them was a major highlight of my trip!


was good , but common places are near bedrooms and could be noisy during the night.

Como estas? Espero que bien. Gracias por tus comentarios. Seguiremos intentando todos los días el balance perfecto entre tranquilidad y ambiente movido. Espero nos encontremos pronto! BackPackers Hostel Staff


Perfect place to stay in San Pedro. Nice and helpful people all around you complete the great atmosphere.


This is a great place to stay and chill out between activities. Not many showers, but they are kept super clean. The kitchen inevitably attracts some flies (it's the desert) but otherwise great atmosphere, nice and helpful staff. Watch out for the cats at breakfast, they're bold. Don't be out off by the distance from the centre, is super close, the town is tiny.
