    I had a pleasant time even though they did not have many people staying at this place because of the protest going on at the time.

    We absolutely loved this hostel; the showers and bed were the best we’ve come across over the last 3 months (the beds had curtains which were great for some privacy, massive lockers to fit our big bags and lots of space in an 8 bed dorm)... only thing was there were not many plugs by the beds. Kitchen was huge and fully equipped, staff were really friendly and helpful and lovely roof top terraces. Location is good but a little bit of a walk to places.

    Lovely hostel with a great breakfast. Lots of outside communal spaces, would definitely recommend if you are staying in la serena. Their sister hostel in the Elqui valley is also really great.

    Well located hostel, about 15-20mins walk from the bus station. The staff were very nice and helpful throughout, check in was easy. I had a bed in the 4 bed dorm which I was all single beds as a nice change with w shared bathroom. Dorm was clean, comfortable, had plugs and lockers. WiFi was good and kitchen is spacious. It was quite quiet whilst I was there which is a shame as the rooftop space is cool.

    Place had a cool vibe, but was a tad bit run down in some parts. Maybe just my room, but the lockers in the room were all messed up. The bathrooms were maintained well, and the kitchen was clean. Staff was friendly and helpful, but there seemed to be a bit of miscommunication between everyone. The Cosmo in Pisco had way cooler and friendlier facilities and staff. I would consider returning. Overall, place has a nice chill vibe. Good for the acid backpacker.

    Stayed 2 separate nights a few days apart. Comfy beds & great showers with plenty of hot water. Rooftop bar is great to hang out on & you can stay until 10pm after check out, handy if you have a late bus. Breakfast included which was good too. Staff are friendly & location is good for the centre of town: bit of a trek from bus terminal in hot weather though! Spolit by some tw*t stealing my wireless headphones but partly my own fault for not realising I'd left them after our 1st nights stay

    I thought this was a really cool hostel. I think I just got unlucky with the guests on my first two nights there and it rubbed me the wrong way. It was very loud at night so if you're not one to stay up this isn't your hostel.
