    Lovely hostel! We enjoyed the decorations and the owner is amazing! He gave us a map of the city and told us everything to do in the area. The location is a little far from downtown but he also let us borrow his bikes to get around faster! We were also able to use the kitchen to cook which was great. Thank you for all your help Roberto! Strongly recommend :)

    Roberto is a great host. He explained how to use the collectivo to get to town inexpensively. The decorations are a treat for the eyes. Breakfast was good and the shower was hot. A pleasant place to spend a few relaxing days.

    Booked for night and ended up staying 3 nights. A great hostel to chill in and spend time as well being able to get an easy taxi into the main town to explore. The owner is always around to help out and offer you advice and really makes your stay here more enjoyable. Would definitely recommend if travelling through Arica :)

    A great place to stay even when its not close to the center. But you can get there easily by shared taxi. I enjoyed my stay and the owner was really nice and explained everything around so highly recommend this hostel.

    Roberto is amazing and is truly a great host! He gave us lots of tips and advice on where to go and what to do, and is extremely funny! Location is very secure, loved the layout of the hostel. There's hot water in the bathrooms! Hallejulah! Location is alright, close to grocery stores and food areas, about a half hour walk to downtown and 20 minutes to the beach. My only gripe was the 3-layered bunk beds! The bed itself was comfy but you aren't able to sit up on the beds.

    The owner of the hostel was really nice and friendly when he was around most of the time he just stayed in his room. The cleanliness of this hostel needs improvements so much. We arrived and there was hair in the sink and shower but we was the first in the room it was still there when we checked out 3 days later! We also witnessed new guests checking in and the bed sheets not being changed at all. It was our last day otherwise due to this we would of moved, it makes you wonder was ours changed.
