    Very nice clean room, and great location - quiet but an easy enough walk from the bus station and very close to the main drag and lots of shops, restaurants, and can walk to cathedral and El Morro. Very helpful and friendly staff, stored bags for us and helped us rent bikes. Breakfast was wonderful - eggs and toast (always nice to have a hot breakfast). WiFi didn't always work great and in the middle of the night there was no water running (ie. no toilet flushing), but otherwise perfect

    Overall good hostel. I love the big trunks at each end of the beds in the 10 bed dorm which easily fit the entire backpack, overall a lot of space in that dorm. The whole hostel seemed a bit outdated tho, everything is already half broken. Breakfast could be more, but very delicious. Super friendly staff.

    Good place to stay if your are looking to surf the waves around Arica. Little bit of a walk to the waves but the owner had a van that he would drive all the guests to the waves, which was very nice. Owner was a nice person and very helpful. The free breakfast was good!

    We just stayed one night but the dorm is so massive there is loads of space. Breakfast was decent too. Bathrooms could be cleaned more often.

    So so far from the ocean. Pros: staff, breakfast and chill area. Cons: security, beds, wifi, kitchen and bathrooms. They lock the doors early so it's hard to enjoy any type of night life or leave early to caught a plane. The area is shady and is known for a old lady named Kypyka, she takes in children from the streets and only has two toes. Very creepy lady when you see her you'll feel the chill.

    Grand place... Highlight is coffe at breakfast which is very nice. Decent location near main drag, beaches are a bit of a distance but that would be the same for any down town hostel. Main issue ;at check out they wanted to charge us full price and disregard the deposit we had already paid with hostelworld. Apparently this was 'an extra charge because we booked online' took some effort to fight this, an extra telephone call with owner, not worth it, just stay somewhere else!
