Ross, the owner rocks! His hostel has one of the nicest atmospheres from my recent SA trip. Single beds, big community room, lovely breakfast with juice, cereal, bread, fruits etc. Walking distance to the beach and about 20 min to Arica's Center. Ross will answer all your questions and will help to plan your daily trips if needed. Great stay in this lovely town!


Stayed 2 nights, arrived very early and despite having spare beds was not allowed to check in until 12pm. The free breakfast was probably the worst I've seen. Just tea, old bread rolls, jam & butter. Would be nice to offer coffee and milk, if not some fresh bread. Bathrooms, kitchen and common areas very well maintained and all in all very comfortable. Staff friendly and helpful, but breakfast lets it down.


Very Nice hostel with a homey feeling and friendly owner. Everything you wish for as a backpacker is there: from a well equiped kitchen, towels, great brackfast to a book exchange....


Pros: nicest owner possible, really close to bus terminal and beach and big supermarket. Attracts nice backpackers. Clean. Reasonable beds. Cons: not the newest infrastructure, kitchen could use a couple of new pans. All in all recommended.


Breakfast was one of the best we'd had in Chile. The floor in our bedroom hadn't been cleaned in some time.

They were very nice to us, had everything that we needed, they even let us sit down and have breakfast earlier than expected as we were silly to not sort out the time difference properly, it was a shame we only stayed there a night and had work to do, as it would have been nice to have seen more of the place. If we ever do go back we know where to stay!

Best hostel ever. Sunny Days has such a homely atmosphere and Ross the owner goes out of his way to make everyone feel welcome. He is also a wealth of knowledge. Breakfast is incredible, the place is clean and close to the beach and bus station.


Nice staff,very helpfull We had a great breakfast althought we had been one hour too late We had a very fast internet-the best internet connection at our journey by now The rooms were very clean and its near to the beach


Run by a great group of people, the owner is kind and extremely accommodating. The rooms are size able and the walk to the beach takes no time. A bit of a walk from the city center but definitely a great option in Arica.


Ross makes everyone feel at home and dispenses invaluable advice for moving on to your next location. Breakfast is very good. The hostel is very near to the bus station and beach and a reasonable walk to town. There is a good market nearby and a Unimarc is a shorty walk. Cooking facilities are very usable and frequently used. Sunny Days was recommended to me and I would recommend it to others.


Very nica place and nice owner, who is very helpful with a lot of tips for Arica and the Region. Just a few minutes to Chinchorro Beach and to Bus terminal. One of best hostels so far...
