People often write best hostel they have stayed in - after 6 weeks in South America this would be mine. Staff are very helpful and were a great help booking tours and for general information. Breakfast was great with eggs that you could cook yourself and way you like - good change from sweet cakes and sugar cereal. We arrived early and they even let us have breakfast th day of check in. Big fluffy towels, water supplied everyday and always kept very clean. Just a little walk in to town.

This is a great hostel. The service is like no other I've seen in hostels. They make the beds everyday and leave water bottles. They have the greatest breakfast with eggs you can make yourself - as many as you want. They have tea and coffee you can use all day. It's about 5-7 min walk from the city center but given that this is a tiny town it's not a problem. Definitely recommend it if you want a cozy clean quiet hostel.

If you are going to San Pedro de Atacama, this hostel is an excellent place to stay. - The staff is amazing, always willing to help you with the tours, or any problems you may have. The tours offered by the hostel are at a fair price. - The facilities (rooms, toilets) are always clean. Hot water all the time! - You can stay before or after check out, drink coffee, chill around the hostel. - The breakfast buffet is very good and if you leave before 7.30, they prepare you a breakfast box.

You can not ask for more. This hostel is very clean, the rooms are very cute and comfortable. The shared toilets are clean at all times. The staff is extremely helpful regarding tours/walks/directions or anything else that you want to ask. We've been travelling around Chile for a while and it was the best hostel by far. Totally worth it.

Mijal (owner and manager) is amazing! She's restless and helped us a lot when we most needed (we stayed there while there were rain in Atacama that stopped the tours). I strongly recommend!

We stayed for 3 nights and in 2 months traveling in south america it was the best hostel we stayed at. Mijal the recpetipnist helped with everything from planning our trip and arranging documents for visas. The room was comfortable and was cleaned every day with a small bottle of mineral water per person every day. The breakfast was very good and wifi was great too.

Too much spray / air fresher being used to clean rooms

Very good very very clean hostel! They clean every day, hand you new towels and every other day they give you new bedsheets. The breakfast is really really good too- with eggs, bread, fresh fruit salad. They also make a lunch package for you when you have to get up and leave the hostel before 7 am (eg.: when you do the Atacama desert tours- Geysiers or Lagunas Altiplanicas). Its very close to the main street- but nothing is really far in San Pedro anyway... All in all: VERY GOOD!!!

Nice place to stay. Very good breakfast, even prepared individually for you when you have to go early. It's possible to use the facilities after checkout and the suggested tours have a good price and agency. Housekeeping is included, as well as soap and shampoo. Just three blocks from the main street (Caracoles), lots of people of other hostels do the same path all the time, you won't be alone. Thanks to Mijal for the attention!

This is an excellent hostel: the rooms are pretty and spotlessly clean, with comfortable beds. The wifi works and the staff is wonderfully helpful. The breakfast in the morning is a great touch, and if you leave for the airport before breakfast opens (as we did), they'll prepare you a breakfast-to-go pack, which is fabulous service. Only downside is that it's a good 10 minute walk to downtown, but still well worth it for a great stay.

Great stay. Everyone was very friendly. Stayed in the dorms, it gets a bit loud at night with the window facing the street and all the tour buses going by, not to mention all the dogs barking. I would definitely stay here again, the breakfast was fantastic (fresh bread, eggs, fruits, meat, cheese, cereals, yogurt, juice, coffee, etc) . Thanks for a great stay!

One of the best hostels we stayed in during our Chile-Trip. Very clean, extremely nice and helpful staff, great patio with a hammock. We also booked our tours at the hostel. We decided to stay a third night, but unfortunately there was no room available, so we went to another hostel for that night. The staff from Mamatierra offered us to come back the next afternoon, take a shower and grab as much coffee as we want - and wait for our shuttle to the airport, which they booked for us.

The owner was extremely helpful and lovely, the breakfast was amazing and free tea and coffee were available all day. The rooms were cleaned everyday and you're given towels on the bed which are fresh and fluffy not the usual gross towels you get from hostels.

I traveled alone and felt super compfty and would choose the same place if I ever come back. The stuff is extremely friendly and helpful, eg preparing your breakfast if you go on an early trip. They all speak a very good English which makes this place also pleasant for non-Spanish speaker. The facilities are clean, shower and WC separated, the kitchen is fully equipped and its possible to hand wash some of your clothes. This hostel definitely made me enjoying my trip even more.

Everyone at Mama Tierra was so kind and helpful – we booked all of our tours through them. They even packed us breakfast for the early morning when we visited the geysers! We were also pleased to return to our room in the evening and find our bed made. This hostel was a little farther away from the main town (10-minute walk) but the tour buses picked us up and dropped us off for each trip, so it didn't matter. Overall, a very comfortable, friendly place. We would recommend it and return again!

Nice place to stay. 10 minutes from the main street Caracoles, but this is not a problem. If you go to a tour before breakfast, they make you a breakfast to go. Nice staff also. You can book the 3 most important tours there with a good price.
