Stayed there 4 nights, great staff very relaxed environment... on the downside they were doing construction right above my room which was super loud and went on until after 7. Also, the music is blasted in the courtyard until midnight which is great if you're out there hanging out but not so great when you've got a 5am bus to catch.

This hostel was amazing! The staff was really nice, their tours were awesome and the location was perfect! I really recommend to stay at this hostel and book the tours with them! It's a bit more expensive, but all hostels are more expensive around San Pedro! Showers were cold, you have to ask for hot water (I didn't know I had to ask...)

Very cool hostel, with wicked managers that can help with anything at all you need! Very easy to book tours through the hostel as well and we'll priced compared to around town.

It's a nice hostel with a good atmosphere. However, we didn't get a very good sleep. They offer tours starting at 5 in the morning but they are pretty loud until late. One night the music was very loud and we were unable to sleep. We asked the staff if they could turn it down a little bit, but when we went back to bed they turned it up. There was no toilet paper a lot of the times which was pretty annoying. We had a decent stay but we wouldn't stay again.

hands down the best hostel ive ever stayed in! as a solo traveller it was nice to feel like i was coming home at the end of everyday. Hector and Nathan are awesome, kind, funny people and i would highly reccomend this hostel to anyone. No breakfast but thats pretty standard in San Pedro. Sitting by the fire everynight is the best! Thanks hostal Rural for making good memories for me in San Pedro de Atacama :)

Really cool place with a sunken chill out area and a fire at night to chill beside giving it a great atmosphere. WiFi can be a bit temperamental and kitchen a but small but otherwise great.

Not worth the money

Rural was a lovely chilled hostel. The beds were so comfy and big. Each bed had a light and a charge point. There were also small lockers with chargers inside so you could charge things overnight or while you were out doing things. Hector and Nathaniel were both really helpful and gave great tips about what to do. I booked my salt flat tour with them and it was really good. The hostel had a good atmosphere. They put a fire in every night and you can sit around and chat to the other travellers.

Loved it. Staff (Hector and Nathaniel) were friendly, knowledgeable, helpful and generally quite awesome. Was easy to book all tours from the hostel and they advised me on what to do and where to do it (moonlight sandboarding definitely more than worth the sand in my butt). The only thing missing was a lock for the locker, but luckily there were plenty of guests in this fine establishment to lend me one. Also, the evening campfires and chill out zone (complete with books in Dutch!) were great!

Great hostel! Helpful and friendly staff. Tours you can book through the hostel are very good. Only one bathroom with a shower but that was never a problem :)

Hostal Rural was great, there's a reason why everyone wanted to extend and it was always full! Nathaniel and Hector are absolute legends who played non stop good music and they were always making sure you were satisfied with the tours they booked for you. Very easy to book different tours and activities from the hostel and they were always good.

I understand the need for growth, but as construction was happening above us, there was sand and dirt all over our floor and beds. We were in room #2.

Hector and Nathaniel were both awesome. Gave great recommendations for places to eat and tours to take. Great social vibe at the hostal. Lots of hammocks and areas to chill out. Good kitchen and always a hot shower.

The hostel was great mainly because Nathaniel is so helpful and goes above and beyond to make sure you enjoy San Pedro de Atacama. The artwork, hammocks an feel of the hostel is really chilled and makes for a great place to stay.

We really enjoyed our stay at Rural! Main reasons being that the atmosphere and staff were great. The hostel is laid back with good common areas, making it easy to meet other travelers and relax between tours. Nate at the front desk was an absolute dude! Super friendly and helpful with booking tours.

Delightful decor. Wonderful staff - they felt like friends! Hammocks in the shade for the daytime and a fire in the courtyard at night. Very pleasant atmosphere- everybody got talking - but also very respectful of others, so quiet at night and first thing in the morning. Only downside was the occasional wait for the bathrooms- but they are extending the space so this may become a thing of the past. If you want a different experience, stay at the Rural.
