Average enough hostel. Two bathrooms to share between a lot of people and a little out of the town, saying that it's not far away and did the job perfectly. Internet is good!


Location is good, it's a small town and everything is walking distance. Hostel is clean, has good showers and a nice patio area. Didn't spend much time in the place as San Pedro is very much about tours but it has everything I needed. Staff could be a bit more knowledgeable and enthusiastic about what tours to take but they were good with regards to everything else.


Staff is so kind! And the rooms have cozy comforters and the kitchen is very nice. Bonfire pit and hammocks outside make for a good atmosphere, but the highlight is the people that work there!

Good hostel, 6 to 10 minutes walking to the center. Only 2 bathrooms so you have to wait sometimes to use it. Had hot water every day, stood there for five nights. There are no lockers in the rooms, but some smalls ones outside, the backpack stays in your room. Good wifi and great staff. I'd recomend it!


Nice place & staff. Very clean. Comfy beds and not cold at night at all. Hot showers but unfortunately one of the days I was there there was no water or internet. Good to be able to use the kitchen facilities. Close to the market and a little bit if a walk to the centre of town. No lockers. Recommended.


Cool little spot away from the main plaza. Very relaxed social atmosphere with pretty outside courtyard. Staff were friendly and wifi was good. Showers were average but hay you are in the desert. 100% recommended.


A no frills hostel that delivers what it promises. Nice common areas, surprisingly good wifi and hot water. The dorms are a little small and the lockers are outside. But the facilities are there. There is a water restriction in the evenings, but you are notified on arrival and can plan around it. Sebastian at reception is a character and very quirky and helpful.


San Pedro is pretty overpriced for being a touristy town... Laskar is actually quite good value. The dorm rooms are quite small though, but the chill out area with the fire, and the super clean kitchen are great.


It's like a guest house, a simple hostel. The staff is very nice and friendly. Not in downtown, but you reach there in a 10 min walk...and its very close from the public parking, where all the tours leave and comeback. I think they just should have a liitle bit more of character/fun


Clean ROOMS, good atmosphere , very good kitchen , free coffee and tea, amaizing staff . Everything was spectacular.


A no-frills hostel with everything you need. It has well equipped kitchen, pleasant patio, good WiFi, friendly staff and wonderfully hot showers (a real treat if you are coming from the 3 day Uyuni tour). There is no breakfast included, which need not be negative. The hostel would not be good value for money elsewhere but in San Pedro it is pretty good. Located an easy walk from the town.


a fine hostel for a couple of nights in San Pedro. Standard of accommoation in the town as a whole doesn't seem that good. The hostel was clean with a comfortable bed and plenty of blankets. However, the showerdidnt work very well (just a trickle) and the WiFi cut out regularly. The staff, although friendly, weren't able to organise tours. In general though, a good stay and a reallreally nice kitchen and outside space

This hostel is just outside the town centre: about 5-10 minute walk to the main square, which means it is quiet at night so you get a good night's sleep. It is very close to the bus terminal.


My room didn't have lockers in. Toilets often ran out of paper and there aren't enough in the hostel. Staff are friendly and helpful, speaking English and Spanish. Wifi is good but doesn't reach many rooms. Good location and good value for money.


The staff at Hostal Laskar are super friendly and were really, really helpful getting me internet access when I urgently needed it and it appeared to be down in all of San Pedro! When they didn't have space for me for a second (unbooked) night they rang nearby hostels to make sure I had a couple of options to choose from. The hostel is equidistant from the centre of town and the bus station, so is in a good location for getting around too.


Very nice stay. The only thing that annoyed a little bit was the shower, it sometimes stop suddenly the hot water. In the other hand, it was very good place, the staff is very helpful and has good location.


I guess it was not what expected as credit card payment was not allowed. Internet failed during our stay and comparing to other experiences staff was not that friendly.


The hostel was okay (comfortable beds and hot showers). Though wifi didn't work for around three days and the personnel changed everyday, so they never really knew who was staying at the hostel and who wasn't. We lost a tour because apparentely they didn't know we were staying at the hostel (so thumbs down for that).


The outdoor area with tables, benches, and hammocks was really great!


Overall good hostal! Pros: Beds were really comfy, bathrooms were clean, the terrace is really great and one of the best kitchens i have seen so far! Cons: only 2 bathrooms in total and the lockers were to small to store your backpack (it only fit my daypack)
