A lovely hostel in La Serena, great staff and fantastic breakfast. A chilled out, friendly atmosphere. Very well placed in the city of La Serena although if you want to stay at the beach then its about 30minute walk (although there is a 'sister hostel' that is much closer to the beach!).


Lovely hostel! The staff were very friendly. The woman that makes breakfast was fantastic! We arrived very early but she let us leave our bags and we had breakfast for 2000 pesos each. The rooms were comfortable, although a bit squashed with everyone getting ready in the morning. Breakfast was nice and included bread, cereal, ham, cheese, juice, tea and coffee. Were able to rent bikes from the hostel. Close to bus station and 10 minute walk to town.


This is one of the best hostels I have ever stayed at. The staff are very friendly and they went out of their way to make our stay a positive experience. The breakfast is very good and the kitchen is excellent. I felt more like I was staying with relatives in their home than at a hostel. I highly recommend El Arbol hostel.
