10.30pm, La serena. Me and my 14 years old daughter arrived to the hostel with a booking reservation for a double room. As soon as we got in Ms. Jovisa informed us that even if we got the booking reservation, they actually didn't have the real space for us. So actually, at 11 pm, me and my daughter didn't have...

Smoking in the breakfast area and the main space where people socialize. Perhaps nice for smokers. I was misinformed about when to communicate about extending my stay. Due to this mistake I was forced to move out. The assistant even went so far as to blame me for their mistake! Not a nice experience.

The rooms and showers were clean and comfortable. The owner was friendly and very helpful, he let us check in at 7:30am into a 4 bed room for the same price as the 6 bed room we had reserved. Breakfast was very filling (bread with cheese, tea/coffee, cereal) and the owner booked our tours for us at a decent price....

Having paid to stay in a larger dorm room, we were happy to receive an entire dorm to ourselves! Kitchen and bathrooms are clean, showers are hot and communal areas are nice to hang out in. During our stay my girlfriend was ill, but the staff were very helpful and let us move to another empty room when other backpackers...

I stayed here a few nights while visiting La Serena. The location of the hostel is great. It is just a few blocks from the main part of the city. The beach is about a 30 minute walk away. Grocery stores are close and plenty of shopping, dining and night life around. A few friends and I stayed here on...

I had a great stay at this hostal, even extending my stay. The staff were friendly and helpful, the atmosphere social but calm. The beds were comfortable and the location is great.

First the good part. The hostel itselfs is really clean and feels safe. But the owner clearly dont know about how het works in hostelworld. The owner sort of lives in the hostel and he looks like he doenst like that people are in his "house". He doesnt interact and it feels like he is controlling you all the time....

We stayed here for one night on our way to San Pedro de Atacama. The atmosphere is not really like in a hostel. There is no comfy living room and there are no bathrooms, only showers. We had to brush teeth in the corridor. The house is actually just not made to use it as a hostel. The staff was...

“the rooms number three and four are more quiet, because the first rooms are more close to the street.”
