Our host was very lovely and extremely helpful during our stay. However owing to average prices in San Pedro coupled with a public holiday the hotel was twice as much as we have paid for any other accomodation in Chile. There was no private bathroom and the facilities were generally quite poor. We purposefully paid over the odds for something we would be comfortable with and were disappointed. Thankfully we spent most of our time on day trips and as such didn't need to spend much time here.


Need more facilitéis, but is quite cheap and the owner is willing to make yout stay as confortable as be posible.

The hostel is about a 10-15 minute walk from the main streets. Staff were friendly and helpful and breakfast was nice with fresh juice and fruit. Our room was spacious, recommended.

A bit of a hike from the main square (about 10 minutes) but it's quite a nice walk so this was no problem. Room was clean, bathroom was nice with a great shower. Kitchen facility was also nice! Owner was very kind and made us feel at home! More of a hotel vibe than a hostel but we loved it!


I had a good stay at this hostel. The relaxed atmosphere around the place was ideal - especially after spending the mornings doing hiking excursions. The bed I stayed in was comfortable, the facilities in the kitchen were great and the showers were hot. However, the hostel was 15 mins walking from the town centre which proved to be difficult in the heat. I did not rate the staff - reception was always empty and they didn't clean our room once. For 15500 CLP per night this was disappointing.


No wifi even though clearly stated on their description. Please take that off. a bit out of town but quite a nice walk. Nice outdoor areas all though it is noisy if you try to sleep at night. Take your ear plugs.
