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.
Nice quiet hostel just 10 minutes walk to main village, staff friendly too
Wonderful hostel... Friendly and helpful staff, rooms and bathrooms very clean, excellent breakfast, very good rates for day tours. Would happily have stayed longer!
Very nice staff, really care about customer service. Very clean and great breakfast. Best of the 3 hostels I stayed in San Pedro
One of the earlier hostels we used during our trip in South America, but one that my girlfriend stands by in saying has the best breakfast in South America. We enjoyed outstay here and would recommend the hostel to any other travelers looking for a base in San Pedro
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.
Excellent hostel, the best part was the staff, thet always help us and were always nice. Great facilities, clean bathrooms and 10 minuts walk from downtown. If I returne for sure I'm going back to Mamatierra.
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.

We stayed in a lovely, clean private double room. We loved that they cleaned the whole hostel everyday and left a bottle of water on the bed (great when at altitude) and there was free tea, coffee and hot chocolate you could help yourself too. Downside was location as it wasn't as close to the centre as other hostels but meant it was quieter at night so depends what you're looking for!
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!
Knowledgeable staff, but sometimes hard to track down. Great breakfast. Very clean.
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.
