Had a fantastic time staying here after travelling from Bolivia. Don't be put off by the negative reviews. Muriel and Ivania were wonderful - they made us so welcome and couldn't do enough for us. We were upgraded to a larger room as they were quiet when we arrived. Rooms and Bathroom comfortable and clean and they provided an excellent breakfast! Location is a 10 minute (if that) stroll from the centre. Thanks Muriel - from the English Mum and Daughter.

After travelling in the salt flats and taking a sweaty bus across the border we finally arrived in the town. The tourism office was closed for a holiday, so we borrowed a map, asked a couple of tour agencies, several local people and even two other hostels/hotels - no-one knew where this hostel was. One guy google mapped it for us - causing us to walk twenty minutes in the wrong direction. We ended up giving up and staying in a hostel in the middle of town. If you stay here have directions ready


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!
