Tatai offers everything you need, with great hot water to have shower. The only problem is the distance of the centre. For a women travelling alone, is not the best option. But despite this, is much better than other hostels in San Pedro de Atacama.


A great hostel, the staff is very helpful and sociable, and they organize a lot of different tours for a very reasonable package- price! Has a cute courtyard with great atmosphere,which is a natural place to hang out and socialize around the bonfire on the evenings 😊


Nice little hostel just outside the main area of San Pedro. Rooms were good. We only got cold water in the showers, and the drain were not working properly, so the water did not go away for a while. The staff were great. They offer tours to go out in the desert, which was awesome. Good common areas, with hammocks and benches. Wifi was not the best, but it worked okay in th common areas.


great staff. friendly and helpful. cool little hostel with comfy beds hot showers great wifi and 2 blocks from the main square. fun little town and great hostel. wish i could have stayed longer here.


I really love this hostel! In San Pedro you can mainly do 2 things: take tours to enjoy nature and relax while drinking pisco with new friends you just made in the hostel. Tatai's hostel combines the best tours (book them at the reception!) and an amazing atmosphere to relax during the evening/night (or during the whole day when you are lazy)! Don't look further, this is the hostel you're looking for!


Our booking was confused and we had to move room each day. We were told to move out of the room at 10am and our other room was still not available at 4pm..... which isn´t the best considering that its extremely hot in the middle of the day. Staff were also extremely rude when we wanted to pay by VISA (they say on hostelworld you can) and were talking about us in Spanish, which we can understand completely. The place is dirty, showers are cold and you have to wait a long time for showers. AVOID


the staff was excellent and they were super helpful. the day we went there the weather went really bad so we ran out of water in the morning


The rooms surround the outdoor area where there is a fire and at night the smoke from the fire gets into all the rooms and it is also very noisy. The private room doesn't lock from the inside and is next to the toilets so people were coming in to our room during the night thinking it was a toilet. Hardly any water for showering. Second night we moved to a dorm and I woke up the next morning with over 300 BED BUGS BITES. Do not stay here.

Overall a good place to stay


Dorm room was the smallest I've ever stayed in. No atmosphere and staff were not that great.


Nobody in town knew where this hostel was or the road it was on and was not on any maps. We stayed elsewhere after searching for an hour...... hence cant review properly


Really lovely hostel. I especially liked the court yard area, which was nicely decorated and ideal for chilling in. Not all of the staff speak English and as I speak little Spanish communication was sometimes difficult, but we always got by.


Location is away from most other places and facilities aren't great. Staff were friendly but the biggest let down is the cleanliness. This place stinks. The bathrooms smell of mould because they are covered in mould. The drains don't drain when you shower so you end up showering someone else's previously undrained water.. Honestly this is the worst place we ve stayed in 3 months. Advice to owners- stop for 2 days, clean everything thoroughly and repaint because it feels dirty to stay there.


amazing hostel, absolutly loved it. staff are so nice and friendly, there is a fire pit in the backyard which is lit every night and often staff or people play music around it. really homey feel and safe and warm and amazing!
