Good wifi. Hot showers. Close to the main street. Would stay again.
Probably the best hostel we have stayed in in South America. If you're reading this review don't look any further in San Pedro!
Best hostel on our six-months trip around the world so far! Staff is very competent and helps with tour bookings. There are cleaners running around during the whole day. Unfortunately, some guest do not take as much care with cleanliness.. Breakfast is varied and simply amazing. There are plenty of blankets on each bed to fight the cold.
You could improve online directions from the bus terminal, it was a bit confusing since street sings in town are virtually absent.
I liked my stay at the hostel, and also the fact that thye make you a foodpacket, if you have to leave early in the morning for a earlt pick up to go on a excursion or for a airport transfer. Staff was very friendly and helpfull. I would go back again to this hostel if in San Pedro.

Mamatierra is an excelent hostel, the girls of the reception are always prompt to help you. Every part of the hostel is cleaned daily. Very good breakfast.
This is a fantastic hostel and relatively cheap for San Pedro standards because it's on the outskirts of town (10 mins walking to center). Extremely helpful staff- they helped us book tours and didn't charge us a night we had booked when we were stuck in Calama due to snow. Excellent breakfast with eggs you can cook! Highly recommend.
We had a lovely stay at Mamatierra. The staff is amazing, very helpful, caring and efficient. Cosy atmosphere, very good breakfast, clean and hot water all the time.
such a chilled out place to stay, the Wifi was fantastic and easiily accessible even sitting outside in a hammock! Great staff and a really nice vibe.
Very well run hostel, helpful staff, good breakfast and spotlessly clean
Nice to stay somewhere off the main touristy strip. Be prepared for the most touristy town of your travels. Breakfast was alright and even had fresh cut up fruit one day. Very thin walls were our major complaint. You can hear normal conversations going on next to you in the night as if there was only a curtain dividing you. Even if someone rolls over in bed or zips up a bag, its audible from the next room. Overall vey clean but we would lookfor somewhere without the sound issue.

It's a very nice hostel to relax after the tours around San Pedro. It's a bit away from the centre but therefore very quiet. There is a small supermercado just next door. The 3-bed-dorm is quite small, but I've never had such a comfortable bed for the last five month of travelling. Lockers are outside the room. The kitchen is very well equipped and the breakfast is big! I appreciated the soap in the toilets and in the showers.
Very nice good hostel. Its a little far from the center of San Pedro back nothing too far away, maybe 10 min walking. Is not a party hostel, but is really really nice place. Very nice staff too.
Very clean, kept dust out of the hostel well. Excellent kitchen and breakfast (don't forget to help yourself to eggs which you can cook however you like!). Friendly helpful staff. Wifi worked well. Showers hot. Located just 5 mins walk out of town.
Helpful staff who can book tours, decent breakfast - especially liked the fact you got fruit salad and can cook your own eggs, very clean, nice patio area and book swap. Fairly quiet and chilled vibe. Three bed dorms bit on cosy side when you have all your bags in there but fine. Directions from bus station completely incorrect and meant we got lost trying to find the hostel and walked much further than needed to, so ignore them and ask someone when you arrive.
Very nice and clean hostel for Chilean standards. A little outside the centre.
Great hostel. Very clean, Nice kitchen. Be aware that all busses now stop at the central bus terminal of San Pedro, the directions indicated by the hostel in the confirmation mail do no longer count. Bus terminal is now 2 blocks from the hostel. 10 minutes walk to the center, small supermarket (as all supermarkets in San Pedro) nearby.
It's a great hostel for travellers that enjoy quiet and privacy. It is not a hostel where you will be partying and drinking late into the night with other backpackers but is more suited for couples, families and private travellers. The staff were really lovely and breakfast was quite good! It is not too far from town - approximately a 5-8 min walk but feels quite safe. There is also a mini market next door which is cheaper than those in the main town.

Nice hostel just 2 blocks from the busstation and 5 minutes walk to the city center. Great atmosphere (not a party hostel), very clean and good breakfast. Staff is very helpfull and speak english. Also tours are good and the staff confirms them every evening just to be sure you will be picked up next morning.
