Very big hostel. Cool Building layout. Kitchen is small for 100 people. Everything else is great. Clean, lots of room to lounge, comfy beds, great showers never runs out of hot water!
The room we had was very moist and moldy in the bathroom. The floor was dirty and there was left over food and clothes in our room from someone before. The food was dependable at the restuarunts though and the travel agency at the main building is convenient.
It was loud at night. The room was good size and it is right across from the beach.
Jenny and Nico are great hosts! She let us in early at 6:30am. The atmosphere is great. We originally planned on being there for only 2 nights but stayed 9, to study Spanish and surf classes with Yoyo everyday. We had a BBQ with them one night. The location is right across from the beach but a taxi ride to downtown. It is close to the bus and a market. The new addition up stairs are very nice. Would recommend this place to anyone. We will only stay here again in Arica.
The kitchen wasn't very good. Only a hot plate for cooking. The breakfast was good. Fruit bread and a piece of cake and a smoothie. Great location. No wifi in our room.
