    I booked my stay in La Serena but finding that there sister hostel was in Elqui Valley, where you could transfer your stay for the same price, MADE! MY! TRIP! The view of the stars at nice and the friendly staff made it very comfortable as were the beds. I did travel in off season so the transfer to the other hostel is based on availability and in elqui valley there is no WiFi, which they tell you before you go! Extremely recommend

    I stayed 1 night in La Serena, two in Valle de Elqui: La Serena - comfy, clean, and warm bed, hot showers plus hair dryer, fun watching Chile play in Copa Americana, yummy choripanes. Agustina and Camilo were so sweet and helpful! Valle de Elqui - Melina made the stay amazing, going above and beyond by squeezing OJ for bfast, giving me a free Hostel Bag from the eclipse, and giving great local recs. Comfy, clean, and warm bed, free/large locking lockers, beautiful pool and lounge area. Go!

    Cosmo Elqui is a great hostel. The volunteers are fantastic. They know a lot about the local area and are great at helping you organise things for during your stay. The beds are comfy with nice bedding. The kitchen is big and well stocked but only has 1 cooker so sometimes people had to wait a little. They do pisco nights which are great for meeting other travellers. The rooftop area is lovely with views across the city. I felt very safe here.

    My experience at this hostel was great, although pretty solitary. I was the only guest there (however, this was likely due to the time of year I visited), which was sometimes a little lonely. But otherwise, hostel was comfortable, clean, and convenient. Staff were super nice, but there were a lot of them and only one of me, so this dynamic could feel a little isolating. But they are all really helpful! Plus, the Elqui Valley sister hostel is also cool and more crowded! (But no WiFi, womp :( )

    Hostel is really well set out, rooms are spacious, enough toilets and a cool rooftop area. I only stayed one night (Thursday night) and there wasn’t too much going on in the hostel, would have been better on the weekend. Location is really good; can hire a bike from the hostel to ride down to the beachfront and is an easy walk to La Serena CBD, bus terminal is a ~15min walk away
