The kitchen is good, the backgarden is atmospheric at night (with fireplace, hammocks and bbq) and lockers are big enough. However, we had to move rooms after two nights because of the possible presence of scabies. They cleaned the infected room immediately, but still a bit uncomfortable. There is no seperate toilet as both toilets are in a bathroom. If two persons shower no one can go to toilet. Staff is friendly, but does not speak English.
All dorms surround a main courtyard where there's often parties so sleep is very difficult to get. Outside town centre so stray dogs bark all night and it's pretty messy. Not great, could easily do better

So far the best hostel experience, we decided to stay even longer. The staff, especially Luis and Ronald, makes you feel welcome and like home. great campfire atmosphere especially when Luis is playing guitar. If you need anything just ask Luis, he is really kind and a great guy.

Staff didnt tell me that there was no one around at night and that I needed to request a key. This meant I had to climb in through a window at 1am after returning from a tour. I also saw a couple of bed bugs. That said, the staff were v friendly and the outside space was great. 2 bathrooms is not enough, but there generally was hot water available.location outside main centre but only a 5 min walk.
Most rooms are built around a communal courtyard which can be very noisy, even after midnight when everyone is supposed to be quiet in the area. Can be frustrating, particularly when you have am early morning start.

The staff was really friendly and welcoming and the courtyard a nice and cozy place to hang around. This was one of the cheapest hostels in San Pedro but after Peru and Bolivia prices in Chile are quite a shock. 2 bathrooms/showers are not enough; many guests go on one of the early morning tours and had to line up.
This is definately a party hostel, so it has a good atmosphere, but is difficult if you have to get up early for a bus or a day tour. The 3 bathrooms were in clean condition, considering how many people used them.
Good Lil hostel , its a little out of town but towns so small its not far. Kitchen well stocked, common area outside with hammocks and fire pit. Can be loud between guest or the road.
When we eventually found the hostel it was great! Staff were helpful in arranging bikes to explore the area for 6,000 Ch for the day - with all the safety equipment you could need (helmets, lights, gloves, spare tyre, pump). The courtyard area is great to hang out in with a beer. The kitchen was fully equipped and free coffee and tea went down well. The shower inside was sporadic with hot water - but the one out in the courtyard was toasty! Get a better map for directions, this place is great!
The rooms are located around a central courtyard and it can be very noisy. The area is suppose to be vacated by 12 midnight but the first night we were there the staff decided to have a BBQ which went on until around 3 or 4 in the morning. The rooms are overpriced, but so is everything in San Pedro. The only upside was the good wifi and friendly staff.
There wasn't any hot water once in my three day stay there even though I asked every time I needed it. The dorm rooms are extremely hot and the staff don't try to regulate the amount of noise in and near the room at night. This hostel is away from the main center of town which can be good for some and bad for others.
Very clean! Good communal kitchen with the basics of oil, spices etc provided. If your a light sleeper or bothered by night time noise, the communal courtyard is outside all the rooms and you tend to congregate there until the wee hours. Courtyard is quite nice with hammocks and a fire pit.
Great atmosphere! The colorful patio with tables, hammocks, grill and fireplace makes people come toghether easily . Water is scarce - sometimes not at all, but that must be because it's a desert... What really bothered me is that the staff member who was sleeping in the same dorm with me (and other people) was speaking and shouting in his sleep. All freakin' night long!
Good: Nice staff, great bikes to rent, great outdoor area to relax in, good kitchen. Could be better: Hard to find, bit of a walk from centre (still just 10mins) , no breakfast (but cheap shop next door), room was a bit worse for wear, quite noisy at night and in-sufficient enforcement of the rule that guests must be quite after 12. Overall, despite the need for improvement I would recommend it and would stay there again.
nice hostal, the staff is very friendly and the room was clean.
We really loved the people in this hostel! Very good atmosphere and they organized a free asado for everybody. We would recommend it anytime!
Solid place. Great tours. Staff treated us like family. Will definitely recommend the place
Very friendly and helpful staff. Made sure we were getting our tours and provided extra things to accommodate our needs. Nice patio with hammocks for relaxing; firepit for the evenings. But - very sunny most of the day, so difficult to relax except in room. Room had extra shelves for our gear - one of the FEW hostels to provide this. We would stay there again and would recommend it to others. One negative - our food was taken from the refrigerator twice during our 5 day stay.
