Wonderful hostel in the heart of San Pedro. We had a fantastic group of random people in our dorm so that made things even better. But it was still an awesome hostel. Nacho was so helpful and honest. We brought in drinks from outside to share around the fire at night and the cave was an awesome chill space. The beds were warm and comfy (no ladder to the top bunk which was a nice challenge). Respect that it's in a dessert and limit you water use please. And enjoy!!

Rural was one of the best surprises during my trip through South America. It felt like home, great place to relax and recharge for more adventures.

Overall the atmosphere was incredible, including a bonfire every night. You could always have a good time with the staff, but in organisational way there can still be done a lot of improvement. If you have some important things to take care of, ask more than one time to get the right information or a booking. But still things worked out and we had a great time!

Staff was very friendly and the hostel had a good vibe. The only bad thing was the price.

Stayed 4 nights at Hostel Rural and definitely recomment it! Very good staff always trying to help... You can book all the Atacama tours directly from the hostel which waves you some time.. and by the way they are the best tours ever!

This is one of the best hostels I have stayed in! Pablo and Clarence go out of their way to make sure everyone has a great time - the nightly bonfires make for a very sociable hostel; perfect for solo travellers. The hostel is right in the middle of town, and the rooms are clean and comfortable. Tours can be booked via the hostel and are the same price as going direct. It was hard to leave this place and I would happily recommend Hostel Rural to others.

Great location, just 10 mins from the bus station and about 10 seconds to everything else. Atmosphere is the biggest draw, this hostel is made for socialising with loads of communal space and a great bonfire every night. Staff are excellent too...Clarence is THE MAN!! Thanks for a great stay.

Emma you rock!!!!! Clarence.-

Easily one of my best stays in South America. The hostel is located right off the main street in San Pedro, 10 min from the bus station. The hostel is built around a courtyard, which creates a great atmosphere as everyone gathers there at night for a bonfire. WiFi is great and the beds are comfy. Most of all what made my stay so awesome was the staff. Clarence and Pablo are both fantastic, and really go out there way to show you a great time. Appreciate how hard they work for your benefit!!

Great hostel. Fun and helpful staff. Super hot showers. Bonfires at night were a huge bonus. Bring lots of warm clothes if you're coming in winter since there's no heat.

Awesome staff and hostel, with a bonfire every night and a great set of common areas! When I was there, the hot water was sketchy but did work when I played with it and asked the staff for help.

Fantastic hostel! I've stayed in a lot of hostels in the world, and this is one of my favorites. The location, cleanliness, beds, internet, etc are all great... Mostly I judge hostels by the atmosphere though, which hostel rural excels at largely thanks to the staff. A special shout out to Clarence at the front desk, who really goes out of his way to help make sure each guest enjoys their stay and gets the most out of this fantastically beautiful part of the world. Highly recommended!
