The hostel is in a short walking distance to the beach. There are many places for lunch or dinner and a big supermarket, all in a short distance. I was there in the second week of January and there was a beach rugby tournament among some Argentinean and Chilean universities, and a lot of beautiful people were on the beach till late in the evening. So it was a very nice and enjoying staying. Arica is beautiful and there are nany interesting things to see and do there in the Summer.

Fantastic staff. Ross is very knowledgable and helpful. It's the perfect location near the beach and the markets, only a 20 min walk to the city centre. Loved my time here!

Ross and Beatriz are fantastic hosts, providing a well appointed hostel in a city full of places to stay - many of them not great. They are always available with suggestions, directions, and assistance. The facilities are well loved but clean and fairly quiet - this is not a party zone, thankfully. Kitchen areas are perfect for those on a budget, with plenty of places for food nearby. The bus terminal is within walking distance, as is the beach. Definitely highly recommended!

Main reason to come here (and Arica in general) - if you're looking to get into surfing or spending time at the beach. The hostel is close to the beach, and through Ross (the owner, a super cool friendly and helpful kiwi), you can meet Yoyo, a local surf instructor for tourists. Yoyo is a former surf pro that has taught some seriously great surfers - highly highly recommend you taking the lesson or at least finding a way to hang out with him. He is a legit quality and fun dude.

I loved this place -- Ross is friendly, helpful and has the right information for tourists. He is also a native English speaker. The hostel is vary spacious and the breakfasts both wholesome and social. The hostel is close to the bus terminal, a beach, and a market but about a 25 min walk from the city centre. In general the place is very clean but I found my room to be a bit dusty and stuffy. Also be aware that laundry may come back quite damp (but should dry quickly in the Arica heat).

This is a great hostel. Ross is so welcoming and helpful. Breakfast is incredible!!!! I arrived in the morning after an overnight bus and was offered breakfast when I arrived. No bunk beds is a nice change. The shower was hot. About a 30 minute walk into town, but only 5 mins from the beach. They have towels and beach towels you can borrow. Highly recommend!

Very friendly owners and staff, who offered us breakfast on arrival at 8am and gave us an upgrade to a private room when our beds became unavailable at no extra cost. Very lovely breakfast and map provided was also helpful.

Ross is a great host! He was a wealth of knowledge, and had a lot of information ready for the guests who are staying there. And he speaks perfect English. The location is a bit outside of the city, but it is a quick walk from the bus terminal which is useful getting in and out of the place. during the day, collectivos from city center are frequent. It is also a quick walk to the beach. the rooms felt a little run down, but the price is reasonable.
