    Amazing hostal to enjoy your stay in San Pedro. The hot showers are great, especially after the cold nights to the desert for stargazing and the tour to Laguna Cejar. Great staff that is always ready to help out!

    It’s the best located hostel in San Pedro - this is fact not opinion. The beds are a bit shaky, but fine. The bar is a great place to socialise, however, they should make beer specials all week round. Staff are great. Hostel is very clean.

    The staff were super friendly and helpful in everything they did, particularly Alejandra in reception who is a saint! Really clean, decent free breakfast, good atmosphere, great location, WiFi pretty dodgy but all round would highly recommend

    One of the best hostel experiences I've had to date. Good social vibe, the bar and garden are really good to meet people. Clean place, maintained well. Fantastic location in the middle of everything, yet quiet enough to enjoy a good night's sleep. Breakfast is spartan, but hey, it's not a star hotel. Friendly, helpful and cheerful staff. Fully recommend this hostel!

    The staff here made the hostel, both the man and women at reception couldn’t have been more helpful going above and beyond their role. Hostel nice layout, not sure if it’s ideal for solo travellers though. Good location.

    I loved the place and it had a really good vibe. However you need to accept the fact that it’s a party hostel and you will hardly get any sleep there (music blasting till midnight / people arriving from parties at 3 am / people leaving for tours at 4:30 am - that was every of my 3 nights there..)

    Staff were really nice and very helpful giving advice on tours etc. Atmosphere was lively and easy to socialise, bbq on Saturday is great, however even if the bar is dead the music is played loudly until midnight, which can be annoying as many tours start before 7am. WiFi is terrible and there were power cuts while we were there along with a sewage flood in the kitchen making it unusable. Cash only for tours and room payment which is inconvenient as ATM’s are limited. Would still recommend.

    I spent almost a week in Rural and had a great time there especially for the atmosphere that reminded me of a decent techno party (that ends at midnight) and the staff (Alejandra is an amazing person and always there to help). The rest of the staff is a bit slow sometimes and the internet doesn’t work that well but in the end that is the vibe of the desert. Totally recommend this hostel for a journey of adventures and nice people

    Loved my staff here! Friendly staff, great atmosphere, great social vibe, so easy to meet other travelers! Cons- WiFi is basically non existent, which is super annoying when you can’t even book a plane ticket/ hostel for your next destination. Also, everyday the cleaners make everyone’s bed (regardless of whether your checking out or not) and throw everyone’s bags/ clothes in a pile in the middle of the room to do so. This is totally unnecessary and causes people to lose things

    No Wi-Fi. No security for bags. Hostel is really cluttered not leaving much space for guests. No atmosphere. Breakfast is ok. Wouldn't stay here again.
