Not much atmosphere but nice clean rooms, hot powerful showers and secure. The breakfast is basic, just toast,ham, jam and coffee. 30 mins walk to the beach and 10 mins from the bus terminal. Cable tv was pretty good as well. We enjoyed one night in watchin Top Gear. Nice change to sight seeing.
Friendly helpful staff, however, like us non Spanish speaking, it would be more enjoyable to spend beautiful La Serena if we had a bit more touristy information in English.
More of a hotel than a hostel. Good kitchen (though small). Excellent breakfast. Good location near bus station and downtown. Supermarket down the street. Good price for a private with ensuite.
