Sol Atacama Hostel was the cheapest and the coolest hostel i could find in San Pedro. Located 5 minutes from downtown, has good vibes and is great place to meet other travelers and make new friends. The owner Andrés will welcome you as to his house, probably you will drink a beer and play ping pong with him. Highly recommend, this is the best hostel where I've never been.

Yes, that´s the idea: to have a good time and to be able to creat an environment where everyone can share their experiences with other people all over the world. It´s all about creating a great experience out here in the desert.


I stayed here over a busy holiday weekend (Halloween, Day of the Dead, All Saints Day), and had to book this place since my first place was full. Facilities were very basic, though I did see them being cleaned while I was there. The kitchen and bathrooms are very small, but the courtyard has enough space for a few tables and ping pong which is great for meeting other quests. I felt that the owner was a bit unprofessional, as a bunch of his friends were up partying later than the guests.

unprofessional because i invited a friend to my hostel to play ping pong and then go to the desert party, that's for sharing and have a nice time , sorry :)


There was no consideration for silence at night, considering most of the guest had to make up early to go on tours. No regulation at all.

sorry but when the guests is shared until midnight as all hostels, if you want no coexistence between the guests in the hostel, this clearly is not your place, thanks
