This would be the perfect hostel if there wouldn't be some pretty basic things missing: 1. the room had no heating, so it got really cold during nights 2. the shower wasn't hot 3. wifi didn't reach the room. Good sides were the extremely helpful & friendly staff. The room was separated in half by a wall, so even though there wasn't a door and people walked pass you, it did feel more private than most 8-person-dorms. Good location - not long way to the beach or to the center.

I had an overall great experience here. It was a clean hostel with very nice and genuine staff that were very helpful and planning trips and things to do in La Serena. Would recommend this hostel to anyone all the way.

I had a great stay! The staff was very helpful and kind, and the hostel is really close to downtown and the plaza de armas.

The hostel was so old at night! We asked the guy at the front desk to light the wood burning stove and heat the house but he said there were no small branches so he couldnt. Then he left to go party at the other hostel at the beach! There was no set curfew and my bed was in the dorm room right next to the common room;people stayed up until midnight making lots of noise until I went out and told them to please leave the room.

The Hostal El Arbol is a house transformed into a Hostal which make it feeling like at a friend's place. The staff was really taking care about us feeling good. I was sad to leave.

The hostel was pretty nice and breakfast was great. It was convenient and neat the bus stop, downtown, and a huge supermarket. The only negatives are that there isn't too much space to hang out in (but there is some!), and the space between bottom and top bunks was scary- about a foot! I had to shimmy to get into my bottom bunk.
