    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 staff were incredibly helpful when I had issues making my reservation. The place is beautiful and offers tons of stuff to do closeby. The bus that goes from La Serena to Pisco Elqui stops right in front of the hostel - if you don’t have a car, it is still easy to get around and discover the area. Incredible atmosphere. Great people. Clean. 100% recommend.

    Great place to meet so many different people, both guests and volunteers alike. It gets really cold at night but the beds are really warm with plenty of blankets. The breakfast is good.

    This hostel is great to relax at around the pool (although need some hammocks and comfier seating). The setting of the hostel is great, very cosmic, bright and colourful. When we went it was very quiet, one night there were three guests (more volunteers than guests), was a little disappointed that although the staff were nice they didn’t interact with us, there was no atmosphere. Kitchen is massive and well equipped, good location and easy enough to get the bus to various places.

    Cool idea for a hostel with individual pods and nice to have camp fire. Very remote so take everything you need with you, including cash.

    It’s easy to get to by bus and the hostel is beautiful - murals, a pool with loungers and lots of colourful fabric that blows in the wind. We were greeted by Susana, the sweetest dog in the world (seriously) & a cute cat. The staff are very friendly and despite our little Spanish we were able to share jokes and tips for the area. There are small shops nearby for food, water, etc as the hostel doesn’t sell these. Beds=comfy, breakfast=good. No WiFi but who needs it with that night sky! Stay here!

    Nice hostel, cool outside common areas. Friendly staff and volunteers. Beautiful location, but a bit outside the valley villages.
