We chose this hostel because it was cheap, and it fit the bill nicely but keep in mind you're booking into budget diggs - 10 minute walk from the center, in a dusty local (but seemingly safe) neighborhood. We liked the out of the tourist hub bub location, others may not. The central courtyard with hammocks and tables is a nice place to hangout and meet other travellers. While the staff were friendly - and kind enough to pick us up from the bus, they were rarely around.


The staff is very friendly and helpful. They picked us up/left us at the bus station. The hostal had a family, very safe environment. The room we stayed, although not the best in the hostal because it was right at the front and we woke up every time people left early in the morning for the tours, was clean and comfortable. Last but not least, the breakfast was only ok, but there was Nutella, and that makes a lot of difference.


Confortable, clean, good price/quality ratio and value for money. It is just a bit far from center but, you can reach there with a 10 a 15 minutes walk. The owner tooks us to bus station and it was excellent.


The hostel was nice. We had to wait an hour outside since we got to San Pedro a little late and they were coming back from a tour. Nataly was helpful and they gave us a ride to the bus terminal the next day. Her mom gave off a grumpy vibe, but who wouldn't in that heat / altitude.


Perfect hostel to have a quiet stay in San Pedro, the hostel is 10 min walking from the city but the walk is no problem, close to minimarkets and the amazing meteorite museum. The owner will help you to find tours and make your stay be comfortable. As other say you will find the owner in 2 houses away but that does not make any difficulties or problem for you, they are also on whatsap al the time.


No frills, and having hot water is a bit of a gamble, but overall the place is fine.

Nice and quiet hostel, 10 minutes walk from the center. We loved it here, great room and private bathroom, nice owners who kept everything clean and washed for us. Good common space with hammocks, good value for money. Nutella for breakfast - a highlight ( : Everything perfect.

Quiet and very comfortable place. The hammocks in the courtyard are great after the hikes and tours. The shower works 7-11 but it's good pressure and very warm. The computer in the lounge is free to use and Internet is fast for San Pedro standards. Natal has organised three different tours for all my stay within minutes and all of them with well known companies. Great value for money. It's a bit of a walk from the centre but San Pedro is tiny anyway.


Our room was clean and the shared bathroom was kept to a good standard. Hot water is only from 7am to 11pm which could be difficult with tours as you often get back late or need to leave early. Breakfast was good. One of the staff speaks good english and she was very helpful.


The breakfast goes only from 8:30 - 9:30 and there's only one bread per person. The restrooms could be cleaned more than once a day. By the end of the day or in the beginning of the morning, it gets quite dirty. The room for four people is very small. Also is about 10-15min walk under the sun to get to downtown. The hostal is very quiet and the common room is really pleasant.


When arriving at the hostel they couldn´t give us our room with a doble bed because the person who slept there te night before missed his bus and therefore was forced to stay another night....is this my problem ???? I dont think so !!!! So they offered us another room with 2 single beds...but this room was so tiny and dark without any window....awful...so we decided to search for another hostel and left this unpretty place...also the staff wasn´t very kind....thy did´nt even excuse.....


We were lucky that other travellers opened us the door when we arrived and called the owner. We then had to wait for almost an hour until she arrived to give us the key. During booking we indicated our time of arrival, which was worth nothing. The owner live two doors away, but this is nowhere indicated outside the hostal. We booked a tour through the hostal, which was with Terra Extreme. The bus driver was speeding like crazy, we would never ever go again with them.


All was OK. Good value for money.
