The hostel is pretty far from the town center. True: you`re away fgrom the chaos, but it`s still too far. The road is kind of creepy, though safe. There's no permanent staff on the premises, you might get locked out, or if you haven't told them about you're exact time of arrival you may never get checked in. The bedrooms are really cold at night. And the hygene of the bathrooms is poor (there were strange hairs stuck with tape to the shower). The kitchen is dirty. Best to avoid.
They were realy nice and receptive

Good value for money. 20.000 CLP for a private room for a couple. 10 minutes walk to town. Rooms are very basic. Good breakfast. The only bad thing.... The staff wasn't very friendly. If you want to pay cheap, this is the place!!
Really enjoyed our stay at this hostel, it is a little outside the town but this wasn't an issue for us. We enjoyed the desert landscape surrounding hostel. Accommodation was very clean, breakfast and wifi was good and getting picked up from bus station was an excellent facility.
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.
