Its a very quiet and clean place. Very close to the bus terminal.


Decente hostel, decent service. Nice plus with a ping pong table, not too far from the center. Hot water available, bad wifi, which cuts often.


I was a bit worried what to expect from the reviews but it's really nice. They have a nice outdoor area with shade and sun. It's very chilled. Nothin special but clean and comfortable. Kitchen is tiny but usable. Staff were really nice.


Very nice hostel with helpful staff and great atmosphere! Only disadvantage: VERS small kitchen and the showers didn't always work for us as supposed (no hot water).


Brilliant budget hostel for those heading into the Atacama Desert. Only a 10 minute walk into the centre and very close to attractions like Valle de la Luna. Lovely hot showers and comfortable dorm beds. Wifi not always strong but you're in the desert so can't expect this! Very friendly owner. Small but well-equipped kitchen.


Very helpful staff, if minimalist in facilities, only a few lockers for the whole hostel.

We stayed at a double room and everything went great. Well located (5 minutes walk to the centre), secure, clean. Nice and respectful people. The host is always up to solve any issue you might have. In sum, we felt very comfortable. Cheers!

We read a lot of bad references about this hostel but we don't know why! The staff are very friendly and helpful! This is a cozy and cheap place in an expensive city. Hot water in clean washrooms, the beds are comfortable and you can enjoy great atmosphere with people, the staff and.. two cute cats!


There was only one shower that was slightly warm all the other were cold. It was pretty cold in the room and the matress had seen better days


A hostel which is more like a home stay. Majority of people use San Pedro as a stopover for a Uyuni your which starts at 7.30am. The owners of the hostel would not be up this early so have to be waken or you need to check out the night before. There is no bar and no alcohol from outside permitted, which is strange for a hostel. Overall, it felt more like staying at someone's house than a hostel and gave us the feeling of being in the way.


San Pedro is really cold at night and at Sol Atacama there is no livingroom or similar inside nor heating in the patio and therefore we were freezing in the evening. Also the rooms are cold and need more blankets.


We stayed here last night and it is a small quiet hostel. After a long trip we just wanted to relax, have a beer, smoke a cigarette and play cards before an early night. Unfortunately the hostel has a zero tolerance policy to both smoking & drinking, literally you are not even allowed to bring in a single beer! Not only this, but when we did bring back a beer (not realising this rule existed) we were made to feel like total criminals and very uncomfortable! Wouldn't recommend unless you're dry!


very nice hostel just on the edge of town, 5 min to the main street. great value, v clean and quiet. has a table tennis table and tiny kitchen. very family friendly, dont know if it says on description but absolutely no alcohol allowed. would recommend

Very small hostel, so not much atmosphere. Hostel is very far on the edge of town, much better to book one in the center for a few pennies more. Basic hostel, much better in town.


Enjoyed my stay here, it gets pretty cold at night but there were plenty of blankets to keep you warm. The showers were hot, you have to keep show time to a minimum as water is in short supply in San Pedro. The owners are lovely and help with booking tours etc.


Really good hostel. We have such a great time. The staff was kind and helpfull.

Best value in town for a chilled out relaxed atmosphere. Tiny kitchen & very few rooms, but still fun. Good hot showers. Water & power cut off at different times, but the whole town was out, so not the hostel's fault.


Very nice place to stay in San Pedro. 5 minutes from the center, with lovely owners who can have you discounts for the tours. The kitchen is quite small and can get busy, and the wifi slows down when everybody is connected but it's a great value for money and with a very nice atmosphere.


Very, very small hostel. There are two bed rooms and two bathrooms. The patio area is nice and the small rooms kinda makes everyone hang out outside. We met a lot of cool people here! For the price it was a nice place to stay.


Sol Atacama is a great little hostel. It has 16 beds that share a modest common space with a ping pong table, two bathrooms, and a tiny kitchen. Showers are unreliable but sometimes hot. Wifi is pretty good. The live-in managers are really nice and they just give you a key to the front door. It’s located a little bit off the main drag, but nothing is a far walk in Atacama.
