5 minute walk from the town centre, some of the staff are very friendly and helpful, others were not sure much. The wifi is decent. The kitchen was also good with enough equipment. The common area was nice and the beds were comfortable and clean. The shared bathrooms got fairly dirty at times.


The hostel was okay. Lack of air con made the rooms stuffy at night. Too many flies in San Pedro in general and they definitely don't avoid the hostels! I was in one of the rooms close to reception and it was hard to sleep with people arriving/departing at all hours for excursions and the people talking at the front desk. Also tricky to find. There are no road signs from the bus station so print a map or something before arriving!


Generally good location - walking distance of 10 min to the centre of San Pedro. Staff is attentive and friendly. Unfortunately the dormitories are close to reception - very loud until night, small and the heat stuck as well during the night. But we had a god time anyway......


Good hostel with convenient location just a couple blocks from the main part of town. Wifi was reliable and the common area quite nice, with helpful staff. The rooms were basic but good (I was in a double room so can't speak for the dorms).


Nice and helpful staff. Cleanliness is taken seriously there, although the dusty conditions thwart some of the staff's efforts. Location a bit out of town,but just 5 minutes walking; the nieghbourhood is relatively quiet. Two bathrooms is too short for the number of guests. Lockers are small, outside rooms and in a very inconvenient location (outside in everyone's way or under the sun). Security is a joke with the room's window open 24 hours onto the street. But would still definitely recommend.


I really liked this hostel! Its a little out the ways from the main square which was nice as it was quieter. The man on the front desk was super friendly and aways happy to help. The courtyard is awesome with hammocks and a fire pit! There is no breakfast but the kitchen is well stocked and they provide tea and coffee. I was in the room right off the main reception so it was a little noisy but I managed. Would recommed!


I found the atmosphere very relaxed, it is possible to deposit a bike there. The staff was helpful, and very welcoming to allow me reorganise my baggage and showering after my hiking day and before leaving on an overnight bus. The Hostel is a mere 5 minute walk out of the very centre, quite close to the foodstands. Even if it might not look like it to everyone, it is a safe area. Some of the rooms were loud in the evening, and the bed was very shaky, but also not too expensive.

The staff are just amazing here. Super friendly and helpful. Also, the courtyard with all of the hammocks are a great way to spend any of your free time. They light a fire in the evening to sit around. It's only a 10 min walk to the center and so much nicer than the other hostels there. Definitely recommend!!


The staff were really great! They made the stay! They were really helpful about the tours and activities. We did all the tours through the hostel and they were great. The downside is the dorm rooms. I would not stay in a dorm here. They are right by the front door and next to the front desk. Extremely loud rooms. Very hot but no bars on the windows which go to the street. However private rooms were just fine but do not stay in the dorms! We stayed in both.


A bit pricey but all the hostels are about that price. I liked that it was slightly out of town (only a 5-10 minute walk though) Reception were really nice and helpful! The trips they can book for you are really good and the company you go with is good! Wifi was a bit funny at times. Good social areas inside and outside. Would definitely recommend!


Good location everything works, friendly staff. Nice patio. I had to stay one night across the road at Hostel Tatais, which was calmer, rooms were bigger, and they had a less touristic atmosphere with mostly chilenean guests. But, nothing wrong with Hostal Laskar, exept I found it a bit "busy" for my taste.


The hostel is close (5 min) to the bus terminal and about 8-10 minutes to the centre. The staff really helped us on getting information and reserves to different places such as Geisers del Tatio and bike rentals. The kitchen was fine, we were allowed to store our own food in the fridge (our cookies were eaten by someone else, though) and they also have tableware to eat; you only need to get food to cook. Finally, here's a backyard with magnificent sky views at night. Would definitely recommend.

Very nice hostel with a great common area to chill and relax. The staff is very helpful and speaks perfect english and the wifi is working all over the place! A great place to stay for a couple of days in San Pedro!


Eventhough I had book 2 weeks in advance and for 3 nights, I got the worst bed, my head right next to the entrance door. They changed it for the 2nd night. Really hard to sleep, bed not very comfy, very hot at night and noisy. I didn't get any infos about town or tours when I checked-in or after. But the hostel is kept well clean, the patio is really nice during the day and they made a nice bbq for new year's eve, that was great!


Very friendly place, decently priced compared to some other places in San Pedro. Rooms fairly small but incredibly clean - cleaned daily including beds made. Distance from the centre is easily walkable and not a problem.


Staff were great- incredibly helpful and good English as well. Location a little hard to find and outside the town center, but they enforce quiet hours so people can sleep for early tours, so it actually works out well. Was planning to originally switch to a diff place but was happy with the place in the end.


Totally recommended. Close from the bus station,close from the city centre, they help you with the tours, rental bikes. You have lockers if you want to have your perosnal belongings there. Next to a little supermarket. you can use the kitchen and hacpve free tea and coffeee. Marco and Natan are just great. feliz año 2015.


Excelente atención, los administradores son muy atentos, una buena atmósfera para compartir experiencias con otros viajeros. A las 12 se apaga todo, lo que es bueno porque los tours empiezan muy temprano.


Great hostel to relax at after the Salt Flats tour - or before. It's about a 5min walk to the centre of town and it's nice and quiet. There is no breakfast but a great kitchen to cook in. The rooms are a bit on the small side but other than that, this is a great hostel - I stayed here 3 nights and felt completely rejuvenated! Very helpful staff too :)


Stayed in a 6 bed dorm which was far too small - barely big enough for 4. Poor security - room was so hot we had to keep the window open which was on street level providing easy access. Two shared bathrooms which would not be enough during high season - clean but only hot water on occasion. Kitchen was fine. Nice communal area outside with evening fire. Staff were very friendly and helped us to book tours, although we did a separate stargazing tour with Space who were exceptional. Good wifi.
