    One of the best hostels we have stayed in during 4months of travelling. Miriam and family were always on hand to help, particularly when we left our passports and needed them sent to Calama airport! The hostel is spotless and breakfast is excellent, our private double was homely & spacious but the wealth of outdoor spaces are the highlight. Candelaria is great value for money in expensive SP (and with a kitchen!) - we highly recommend.

    It is a very good hostel. I had my room cleaned every day during my stay, which is important in a city like San Pedro. Breakfast is very good and the staff is very helpful. However, it would be nice to have a ventilator in the room during summer time. I asked the staff for a ventilator and they borrowed me one.

    Miriam was a delightful host. Double room was simple but let our needs. The outside patio and seating was nice. There numerous hammocks around. Good Wi-Fi. Dogs and cats were friendly. Some people may have issue the bathrooms being outside the rooms; must walk outside. Suggest the free breakfast; prices in town can be high if you're on a budget. Location is 10-15 walk to the central area; safe walk. You'll pass the Mari Mari stand; get the lentejas burger and pina jugo. Cheap/good.

    Our room at Hostal Candelaria was very spacious and super clean. They put on a great breakfast each morning and have a nice patio area with hammocks and tons of seating to relax. The walls are made of a traditional mud-like material which worked very well to keep the tempurature inside steady and comfortable. The place is a bit removed from the main tourist centre of town but only by a 5-10 min walk. This also means that the nearest store isnt quite as expensive as right in the centre of town.

    We really enjoyed our stay here. The room was cute and bed made daily. Hot showers, bathroom and guest kitchen kept really clean. Breakfast was quite good. 10 mins walk from town but this didn’t really bother us. Fairly quiet atmosphere wise.

    Great place to stay. Comfy beds and hot showers. A chilled courtyard with hammocks to relax after a day exploring. The host was lovely, even making us a packed lunch the day we missed breakfast for an early tour.

    We had a lovely relaxing stay here - I think we were the only people there at the time! It was super peaceful with lots of communal seating outside you could chill out in! It’s about a 5-10min walk to the centre of town along a well lit road. The lady who runs it was friendly and provided a different breakfast each day we were there. The bathroom was clean, as was the room. WiFi was fast and reliable. All in all a lovely place to stay after 3 days in a car on the salt flats!

    Very Good

    Pros: Good please to relax before the salt flats tour, hot showers, clean bathroom. It is a 10 minute walk from the centre which is a nice escape from the madness. Cons: Dogs/cats roaming constantly, harmless but not well kept at all, to be completely honest it was very off putting especially at breakfast, breakfast was okay but very basic. Bedrooms were cleaned daily but there was long hair trapped in the blankets. Bathrooms are a outside which isn’t well lit at night.

    Bathroom is across a 'yard'. I was only person there. All a little too basic. Your site says she takes credit cards - she doesn't.

    This Hostel was incredibly unsanitary. There are multiple dogs present who have not been groomed in years, who are urinating in all corners of the Hostel (dining area, the floor outside your room, everywhere). There was very little warm water if at all (none of my showers were warm). The rooms themselves were cleaned and beds were made, but otherwise, there was very little to appreciate here. We spent most of our time far from the hostel during the day.
