We had a great stay at Hostal Al Yaras. The owner and staff are very friendly, helpful and speak english. The owner makes a variety of tasty jams and yoghurt which you get to try. Easy to get there by bus, but would recommend to bring some food and drinks. There are only a few small shops in walking distance. Cooking facilities are available. Easy to take a bus to nearby Vicuna but it costs 800 pesos per person each way. There is also a nice micro brewery in walking distance.
Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Hostal Al Yaras for 3 nights set with the stunning backdrop of the Valle del Elqui. Richard (host) was very laid back along with Fanny who was volunteering. There was a slight mix-up with the booking however they were very accommodating in making me feel comfortable. Breakfast was great with homemade jam too. The Copa America was on at the time and although there was no TV it was no prolem watching on the computer which was appreciated. Great trekking nearby too!
