This place is great for meeting other backpackers. The common area is huge and has a great vibe (ping pong included). The owner is so relaxed. All around great stay!

Super tiny Kitchen, staff were great but sometimes werent around and we played reception. Great showers, chill hostel with early to bed early to rise and explore attitude. Very much enjoyed our time, good value for the money, but you get what you pay for.


Nice and cosy hostel! The staff was friendly and very helpful, although they sometimes disappeared, so you had to wait a bit. But they made the stay very comfortable. Everything was very clean. The atmosphere in the hostel was really nice as well, we got to know lots of fellow travellers during our stay.


Small Hostel with a very very small kitchen (only for one Person) but it is nice there - good Atmosphere.


Good hostel at a really good price.


Very small but cosy hostel - good enough for a couple of nights in Atacama for its excellent price. Marcello was really friendly and helpful too!


Decent hostel around 5 minutes walk to the main street in Atacama. It didn't have much of an atmosphere while we were there but it all depends on how many people are staying. Marcelo was a nice guy but was occasionally not around. Cleanliness could be improved but was good enough for the price.


Chill hostel with hot showers and kitchen. 10min walk from town centre but the stay was very comfortable. Wi-Fi was fast when it worked but it was on and off.


Good hostel for the price. No breakfast and quite a small place and wifi doesn't really work. The place was a bit dirty so that's something they could work on. But when you're there you spend most of the time doing tours all day anyway so it doesn't really matter. Would stay here again as its close to the main square and bus station and is cheap


Small place, but confortable! Staff very kind and helpful. Good location When compared with another hostels.


Best deal in town. Perfect for me!!!


Hostel was fantastic with a lovely helpful owner. Best value bed in San Pedro. The only negative was the wifi was slightly temperamental but that was a small issue compared when weighed against the positives of the place.


The room was clean and comfortable. The owner waited for us on our late arrival which we appreciated. However, there was an issue with staff be absent which led to guests often answering the door. Eg. two people arrived and they were let in despite not having a reservation - a potential security issue - this would not have happened if there was staff present. Also- after being up late on the stargazing tour we were woken by a group loudly playing pingpong at 6am - no one told them to stop


Small quiet but friendly hostel. Loved the location, close to bus station and a safe walk to the center. Owner Marcelo was friendly and keen to help. Showers were great, only thing is the kitchen can be better equiped for cooking with essentials like oil etc.


We stayed in the double room for a week while visiting San Pedro. Hostel was an easy 5 min walk to the main square and very close to the bus station. Hostel was clean and had good bathrooms and kitchen and room was large and comfortable. Highly recommend.


The big problem of this hostel is that there's no employees all the time there. The owners are a couple, the guy is friendly and helped me and the girl is unfriendly, but I did't have troubles with her. Another problem is that is not allowed to clean your clothes there, even if I want to wash only my underwear in the shower, we are in the desert, clothes dry in some hours, so what's the problem? And there's nothing on the website saying that is not allowed to drink there.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Amigo, Justamente por estar en medio del desierto es que debemos cuidar el agua, la cual es muy cara y escasa en esta region. Lamentamos no tener patente de alcohol pero en el pueblo dispones de muchos lugares para beber. Queremos un hostal para descansar de paseos, recuerdo solo hablarte para bajar la música que pusiste una tarde, si eso te parece antipático, pues disculpa, el Heavy Metal no es de mi agrado, lo siento. Que tengas buen viaje.


Nice cute hostel with a small kitchen. A little walk from the centre but very close to the bus station.


For the price, this place is pretty great. Very chilled atmosphere, safe and clean. Only a few minutes walk into the main part of town. I would stay again!
