    This place rules! Absolutely amazing atmosphere (firepit, pool, star gazing domes, etc) with super cool and friendly staff! Only recommendation is to cut the amount of waste they use for breakfast. Everything unfortunately is individually wrapped which could easily be ammended. Anyway would highly recommend to any young travelers. Cheers guys!

    After spending time in cities around Chile, this hostel was just what I needed. An oasis in the desert, this is one of the most unique hostels you'll find. The staff are awesome and will help you arrange activities and plan your day. The hostel is the perfect place to relax and see the stars. The pool is amazing on a hot day and you get a good breakfast. The beds are comfortable and I slept well at the hostel. If you visit during summer then take a swim in the river and pisco tours are a must!

    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.

    Great location and hostel! The pool is a real nice touch. The bathrooms are bit tough round the edges but still suitable. Easy reaching distance to other parts of elqui valley. Short walk to start summits of a couple of the hills near by and to get to the river if you fancy a swim in Rio claro! A bit pricey for my liking but this may be ongoing trend in rural areas in Chile by looks of it. Worth asking if you can pitch your tent if you've brought one.

    Staff were lovely and very helpful. Dome room too hot to stay in from 10-7pm! Need more shady areas - some trees would help. Not enough lounge places - like being in fish bowl, play pen! Too noisy - music all day and loud all night.

    For a hostel who advertises as a star gazing place, staff were not informed about the nearby activities. We stayed here especially to do the observatories tour, they forgot to call to book us in for the 1st tour (resulting in us having to stay another night) & then they booked us in for 2am (instead of 9pm) in Spanish the next night, despite us specifically requesting English. All the staff gave us different info every time we asked. Better off staying somewhere cheaper & sorting it yourself.

    The staff suggested that we go up the mountain near the hostel at night, for a beautiful view of the stars. Only 1,5 hours up on a marked trail. We reached the top within the hour but couldn’t find our way back. We were stuck on the top until 03:00 AM and had to sign SOS 3x because we were in the middle of a cliff. The hostel staff did not take us seriously, had never been up the mt and complained about rescuing us. They should never recommend climbing in the dark, very unsafe!!! Traumatic!!
