Loved this hostel! It was very clean and comfortable with a great kitchen, dining area, and lounge. I enjoyed using the kitchen to cook dinner and loved the free breakfast! My only critique is that there were no locked luggage rooms. If there is a time that you want to leave your bag in the hostel but you have already checked out of your room or have yet to check in, there is no secure place to lock it up. But other then this small inconvenience, it is a wonderful place! Very helpful staff!!

A very nice hostel in a perfect location for the centre and bus station. The rooms were well decorated and cleaned each day. Really good breakfast included and the staff were friendly. The kitchen is a bit small for when the hostel is full, but there was a nice chilled atmosphere.

Very cute little hostel, very central to main plaza, shopping malls & walking distance to the bus station and the beach. The staff are amazing and go above and beyond to help. Hostel is very clean and they serve a decent breakfast. The downstairs bathroom is very small, the pressure is good, but it wasn't very warm. The kitchen is well equipped, I had no problem cooking my meals. There are two outdoor areas (front & back) for socializing, but it wasn't a party vibe when I was there, very chilled

Hostel is in a really great location. It's on a nice quite street but so close to the bus terminal, restaurants, bars and iconic landmarks for the city. Found there was very minimal hot water, and most has very very cold showers. Bed were so comfy and clean but breakfast was really nice as well.

Awesome stay at Hostal El Arbol - would gladly stay again! Felt very safe and comfortable as a solo female traveler. Good breakfast, clean cooking facilities and bathrooms, great location, wonderful staff, very cozy beds and laid back atmosphere. I was in the 4 bed dorm and only watchout is that this room is located between the kitchen and dining area, so when people start to eat right at 8, you're going to hear it!

Loved it. A pleasant place to stay. The rooms are a little cramped but that's no big deal. The beds and doonas etc very warm and comfortable. Great place.

Great staff who were very friendly and helpful and made the stay very homely. Breakfast was great and facilities were good and easy access to everything including only about a 10 minute walk to the bus station. Highly recommended

Had a fantastic time staying in El Arbol. It's well located, close to the centre of La Serena, its shops and bars/restaurants. It's clean and tidy, quiet, the beds are very comfortable and the water hot. I stayed in the 8 bed dorm and have no complaints at all. The hostel has a very cosy feel, with a small dining room and equally small living area perfect for getting to know other travellers. The staff are so friendly, always willing to help and bring you a nice breakfast in the morning!

Loved this hostel. The ladies who run it could not have been nicer or more friendly. It's always very clean and breakfast is served up in the dining room in a lovely homey way.
