Best hostel ever! Amazing hammocks to lay in and relax. Fantastic atmosphere. The staff is the BEST! Easy to walk to from the bus station and close to an ATM and grocery stores. Probably the best hostel in Chile and maybe South America. Perfection!


No hot water which can be really frustrating. No breakfast included and no kitchen to use.


fantastic atmosphere and the staff couldnt be more friendly or helpful. Tip of the hat to Clarence


Atacama was an unforgettable experience largely due to the staff from H Rural. The staff spoke fluent English. The staff really cared about the guests and felt like true good friends. very knowledgeable on best toura, best restaurants, and cheapest buys. The hostel itself was made for connection where all the guests could talk all night, make fires, and relax in hammocks. Wi-Fi is FAST.

YEAH! This is it! please people who are reading the reviews, THIS IS THE KIND OF AWESOME PEOPLE THAT WE WANT!!! Thanks for getting us and helping us have a great time, because we are here for you but you make our job amazing, people like you girls! Fisk Over and Out!


A really cool hostel with a great vibe and unique designs. The staff are really helpful and the facilities are good.


By far the best hostel in which I've ever stayed,Hector and Clarence make you feel at home, speak perfect English,and give you really good advice on tours (you can book them through the hostel).The place has lively and energetic vibe and you'll meet a lot of new people.The guys want to get to know you and help you out in any way possible. Because of them and the overall atmosphere at the hostel,I ended up spending a lot more time in San Pedro than what I had originally planned.Don't think twice!

This hostel is extremely well located in the heart of the town - although a litttttle hard to find. Just keep walking that side street and you will get there. There are several toilets and showers in Rural which were also pretty clean. I must say I was positively surprised about that. The kitchen could be bigger/cleaner. But the most wonderful thing was the little cave they have in the middle of the outdoor area where you can safely charge your camera/phone/whatever in a small locker.


Located centrally in San Pedro and with cool staff, they were let down by absolutely screwing our washing (ruined hundreds of dollars of clothes) and there being ants all through our dorm. The vibe at the hostel is chill but there's also no breakfast.


Hostel all right, but expensive for what it is. For the same price, you can find better in the same area.


Great hostel, loved the hammocks! The staff was really friendly and helpfull. The hostel is perfectly situated at the main street of San Pedro. The only downside was the small kitchen.


Esta bien localizado, el personal que atiende es amable.
