Very simple hostel. Nice, helpful staff who aid in booking any trip you could want with fair prices. Fairly close to the main plaza and very close to a fruit and veggie market. No breakfast but free coffee.


Great hostel only 4 blocks from the centre of town, the staff are brilliant and very helpful👍 the young girl that cleans never stops working so it is also very clean.. The only downside is there's only 2 bathrooms.. Def recommend this hostel😎


In all a great stay. The rooms are around the common area which sometimes makes it noisy even in the room.


Mi estancia fue perfecta, tranquila y descansada. El patio es muy agradable y los dormitorios son suficiente grandes. El albergue esta ubicado un poco fuera del centro pero practico del estación de bus.


The first impression wasn't good, but then I realized that I was wrong, the hostel has San Pedro atmosphere, simple, but clean and confortable. The staff was really kind all the time and I ended up enjoying it a lot. The dorms were OK, but they seems to have nice private rooms.


Room was cleaned daily and shower was good. Bloke who checked us into our room was lovely but then another bloke was on reception next 3 days who was not very good. He okayed us to stay another night but then we were told later in the stay that it was not possible, given no apology. We booked a tour at the reception desk also but when it came to being picked up the tour company was not aware who we were and another company had to be contacted. It is a 10min walk to town. Bit overpriced.


we just came back to San Pedro from the uyuni tour and decided to stay at Laskar again. It is within walking distance of town (as I guess most other hostels are), staff is very friendly and there is a nice backyard with hammocks and a fire some nights. Lights in one of the dorm dont work properly though.


The hot showers worked sometimes, sometimes not. Some of the staff are friendly and helpful, one of them wasn´t really friendly, even tried us to pay more than we should. The common area is just great, a lot of hammocks and an awesome place to relax =) The Hostel is a bit away from the main area where all the restaurants and other stuff are, but still okay.


Very good hostel with friendly staff. The room was a litle bit small, with no individual energy plugs, in fact, there was just one energy plug for the whole room (6 bed dorm). The hostel had a nice atmosphere, with a nice outdoor area. The kitchen was ok, well equipped. We didn't book the tours with Laskar because the hostel overpriced them, so we can`t talk about the quality of that service. Just 2 bathrooms to all the hostel.


Aardige hostel om 1-2 dagen te verblijven, helaas geen ontbijt, moeilijk te vinden


This is a fab hostel, great outdoor area, really clean and very friendly and helpful staff. Also really enjoyed the tour we took with the hostel too. Thanks for everything!


15-20min walk to main plaza but still close to a couple shops and a very handy fruit and vegetable market. Best to just get a taxi from bus station because the address doesn't show up properly on maps. Great outdoor area for relaxing.


Good hostel, nice people

The Hostel is quite ok, it is nice to chill out. BUT: It is really hard to get some slepp. During the night there is one guy from the staff who should let the people into the hostel. In fact he is sleeping whole night. That is why people ring the bell and knock on the door during the night till someone (not the staff) gets up and opens the door!!


I stayed here for a couple of nights before going on a salt flats tour. The staff were not particularly helpful, I do not speak perfect Spanish so that could be a reason. The person on the nightshift also slept in the dorm I was in - this was rather annoying. It is a very basic hostel - I am sure there are better out there.


Great chilled out hostel with very friendly staff. Nice beds and rooms, everything was clean and nice. Would recommend this hostel


This place has a great atmosphere and unique style. It was also very clean... something I'm really particular about. Good social areas too and the staff were helpful. Would definitely recommend.


One member of staff was lovely and super helpful, the rest seemed like it was a massive effort to help out. Nice outside common area with the fire, easy walk to town but not super close. Kitchen facilities weren't bad, bathrooms were ok. Overall a decent stay.


Location is not the best 5 mins to town, hard to find when off the bus, some of the staff are a bit clueless about what's included in the tours but are helpful. The common area is nice and the beds are comfy.


When booking a tour through the hostel make sure you find out about all extra costs as staff are very forgetful and don't tell you that extra money is needed. The staff are rather disorganized. The hostel is clean and the kitchen big enough to cook in.
