Roberto the owner was super friendly and very helpful, he stayed up with us talking and making sure we will be all taken care of. The hostel has a great vibe and it is super cute. Only downside is that is kinda away from the touristic part of the city but it is a cool place to stay in.

Pros: Great staff. Nice, comfortable hang-out area. Good internet. Cons: Far from center! Have to taxi or bus there. But this may not be a problem if you're here for surfing. Was just in Arica to get to Peru, so this was a comfortable stay for the night. Would recommend.

Amazing and still quite cheap hostel in Arica! Owner Roberto is very friendly and helpful and the right guy for up-to-midnight-talks :). Just the bathroom would deserve a renovation.

Hostel owner Roberto is the most enthusiastic, cheerful and welcoming person we have come across in any hostel. We arrived at midnight and were greeted with a welcome beer, a map and lots of helpful information. We stayed in a private double ensuite. It was a nice room but unfortunately didn{t have a lock so we had to use lockers which was a little annoying. Breakfast was great and the general atmosphere in the hostel is laid back and very comfortable. Easy transport to town in shared taxi

Short taxi ride away from the bus station (take black taxis!) Roberto and Bryan are so welcoming and really looked after us...free bottle of beer on arrival :) Organised our early morning taxi to the airport. Room basic but clean and comfortable. Would recommend to anyone staying for a few days in Arica.

Roberto was very hospitable and friendly, but when we were leaving after our two nights he was too hungover to get breakfast out for us. Bad form! Definitely a party hostel if that's what you're looking for.

We got here after a very long and tiring day to be handed an ice cold beer and to be told that they were having a BBQ that same evening!! It was like music to our ears!! We had hot showers and the staff were so lovely and accomodating!! I would recommend to anyone!!

I only stayed here one night but loved it. The atmosphere was fantastic and Roberto, the owner, is hilarious and super nice to talk to. Each room has their own bathroom and mini kitchen (with mini fridge) which is really nice. Breakfast was a nice spread too...bread, meat and cheese, yogourt, fruit...and you could have as much as you wanted. With tons of writing from past 'residents' all over the walls, you can tell fun is always had by all. I'd definitely stay here again.

- staff was very friendly and helpfull (told us how to get easy and cheap to peru, etc.) - room was very dirty (linen had been full of sand and nearly no water in the shower) - you can get easy to the city by colectivo (500p/person)

Great hostel! The staff are so friendly and very funny. If you want to chill out go to this hostel! The location could be better but it is very cheap to go to the beach or downtown so it's not that big of a problem.

Party hostel. Staff are nice, but the hostel itself isn´t, dirtier than others, no locker in the room, dorm was dark and messy. When I came back to Arica I did not stay in this hostel anymore.

We planed 2 days and ended up beeing there for 10 days, that should say everything. The owner Nino and his staff Roberto are really fun guys. We liked the big patio with pooltable, tabletennins, tv and hamock. Breakfast until 12 is perfekt and you get breadrolls, ham, cheese, sweets, yogurt, juice, coffee.... only the the kitchen needs a bit maintenance. Sure its not in the center but with a shared taxi its 1US to get there. If you wanna have a good situation in the end, just bring a mango :-)

-breakfast: very, very minimal. -atmosphere: loud rock music all day, also loud music until 1am or later in the patio where all the rooms are next to -location: normally wouldn't complain, but you really need taxi ride. costs money in the end -afterwards stayed in Arica Surf House for two nights, definitely the best hostel i've been in for ages. location, dorm, breakfast, everything.
