Didn't stay as we headed off to Santiago in the evening. But lovely staff offered us a great breakfast when we arrived needing food in the early morning.
A lovely hostel, friendly, efficient, clean and with a real sense that they cared. the 3 bed dorm I was in was clean and secure but as others have said, all 3 of you can't be sorting backpacks at the same time...space is a little tight! Room 6 is next to the staff prep room, so I was woken by the chat
Staff were all excellent. Paula and all the staff did everything possible to make our stay enjoyable.
generally good beds. One mattress in the dorm should have been replaced as it is quite uncomfortable.
Very Nice hostel with good breakfast and hot showers. Perfect location. I would return!!
Great location... only 5 minutes walk from the bus terminal and 15/20minute walk to the centre of town. Or just hire a bike & make it an even quicker trip! The hostel had an above average breakfast with eggs & fruit salad on offer every day.... a lovely courtyard with hammock for people to chill out in. The only issue with this hostel was the constant dogs barking through the night but unfortunately this happens alot in sth america & there was not much the hostel could do about this.
Nice hostel, in a quiet location close to the bus station (although the describtion of the direction was misleading). Due to the thin walls, the cats and dogs could be heard too well at night. As most of the hostel in San Pedro, the prices for the rooms are a but too high. However they serve very nice breakfast!
A great hostel to stay in whilst on San pedro. Yes it is a little walk from town but really not an issue as only 10 minutes. Otherwise a great place to stay!
Showers were hard to adjust to correct temperature. Breakie was good and staff friendly. Cleans and a nice place to stay
It was a great hostel. Worth it for the price. They have breadfast but I couldn't take it beacause I was leaving so early. The rooms were quite clean and silent. The bathroom and showers were just great. The receptionist was really nice. The only problem for me was that was really hard to find in the map. The street didn't appear. They should send better indications in the booking or maybe a map in pdf.
Good hostel and pleasure stay. Location could be better. Takes something like 10 minutes to get to the main street. All the tours in the morning leave very early, which is not a problem because most of tour companies included breakfast at the local. Because of this, we have not tried the breakfast at the hostel. Considering that most people leave early would be better if breakfast could be paid a part when you are able to enjoy it.
The receptionist was fantastic! Very helpful and extremely sweet!

Awesome breakfast! Comfortable beds, nice outdoor area. Recommended.
The staff was very friendly and the hostel was very clean with tood accommodations (bathrooms, rooms, and kitchen). The hostel is about a ten minute walk from the main street, but it is totally worth it. Iws very happy with my stay.

The breakfast was awesome!! A little out of the way but San Pedro is really small so it doesn't matter much.
Nice hostel, with nice people. A 10 minutes walk from the main street Caracoles. Some might think its far, but for me was ok. The only thing I missed is a heater in the bedroom.

I really liked this hostel. It's off the main strip so it's a little quieter but that's what I was looking for. The staff were extremely helpful. Only slightly negative was that the showers were a little temperamental. Otherwise everything was great.
The place was cute, but what made this place great was the staff. Cynthina was AWESOME! Super friendly and accommodating. While we were waiting for the bus to leave San Pedro, one of the staff members made himself a smoothie and then shared it with us. Not to mention, when we accidentally broke the outlet, they were really nice about it. Definitely recommend this place!
Absolutely the best hostel I have stayed at during my 7 week South America tour. First of all, the breakfast was brilliant. Eggs, bread, fresh fruit, juice, coffee, tea, milk, etc. One is allowed to access the kitchen, refrigerator, appliances and cookware at any time. The hostel was very clean, the water was HOT (unlike many other hostels who claim this), the staff was friendly, and the rooms were nice. Overall, I would highly recommend this hostel to anybody and I will certainly be back!!!
The team is very friendly and helpful, they made me feel very welcomed. I enjoyed my time there. I liked it that the kitchen could be used at any time and so did the bathrooms. Only one thing I forgot to mention during my stay. The locks of the bathroom doors were tricky to lock and unlock and quite noisy. Maybe they can be repaired. During the nice sunny days I enjoyed the outdoor area, for the cool days I prefered to stay in the kitchen with some hot tea or in the room.
