    Incredible hostel with an amazing view and awesome surroundings. So beautiful. Great kitchen, nice social seating and good sized beds. No WiFi but you don’t need it this place is amazing. They offer tours which are good. The star gazing tour was great but a bit too expensive (£25). I would definitely recommend this hostel to chill and relax. Nearby in Pisco elqui you can do a free Pisco tour which is fun. Big thumbs up. Staff nice too! Buses easy

    Amazing little place. The domes are a real experience to stay in & in the desert heat the pool is a godsend! Staff were awesome, our Spanish isn't great but they were so friendly & invited us to join in birthday celebrations they were having. Elqui valley is a must visit & this place is perfectly located for making trips to Pisco & the surrounding areas. Not a lot to do in the village itself (Rivadavia) & no Wi-Fi but who needs it when you have that night sky to stare at. Highly recommended!

    Hostel Cosmos was such a relaxing and enjoyable experience. We actually ended up staying an extra night because we felt so comfortable there. The staff was always friendly and helpful. The location was great for hiking or going to the river. Close to other sightseeing places. Breakfast was simple but complete. And the facility was very clean. Also the cat and dog, Antu y Suzy really topped off the experience with their love and affection!

    The rooms and the kitchen were spacious and clean. They also have little cabins with class ceilings, which is super nice. The free breakfast was better than at other hostels and the staff were very nice. There was a pool and at night we could see the stars very clearly, because they only have red light to avoid light pollution . The location was in the middle of nowhere but there were busses passing by regularly. They didn’t have wifi, which was quite refreshing. I would stay there again!

    A lovely hostel with great views of the stars. The staff were amazing and very helpful. A shame the hot water didn’t work in the men’s showers.

    Hostel which is well set up for stargazing and disconnecting from the world for a few days. Staff do keep to themselves but are not rude. A little far from the town but the bus stops right out front.

    Amazing place to sit out on the deck and watch the stars, we didn’t even feel the need to do a tour. Nice pool which we used a lot. Bit untidy and slightly dirty in the kitchen. Easy to get a bus to Pisco Elqui and the hostel was helpful at showing us things to do.

    Very average place. It was nearly empty; asked for an upgrade to one of the cool rooms and they wanted to charge a ridiculous amount. Mostly volunteers there. And they were very antisocial. A very basic place in a terrible location. Only convenient for catching the bus to leave.
