Bad experience in total, bad attitude, no toilet paper. We couldn't find any other place, San Pedro fully occupied. Would recommend to come here as last option possible. Super simple breakfast ( which included form 8am, all the tours starts at 7am)

No hot shower(just mild warm after I asked the boss), no toilet tissue and very very slowly wifi, the worst of all, she had bad attitude after we paid the charge. Furthermore, in the second day, she knocked the door at 8 am and asked to checkout.

We arrived here after our Salar de Uyuni tour and we had to search for a staff member as they were all in bed. They tried to over charge us which we found Out later and were so rude to us. We were exhausted after our trip and we were promised wifi which ran off a tiny USB and did...

The lady that runs this hostel is plane deceitful and nasty. We have had an awful experience, many issues including but not limited to: -WiFi just doesn't work. We tried 4 devices and none of them worked. The owner just argued about it. - bathrooms are falling apart. Window below head for one of the mens. No privacy. Doesn't drain,...

Shabby place, used blankets, no toilet paper, cold water in the showers and very tight fisted host who won't give you more than one slice of bread for breakfast. Asking the "lady" for a hair dryer was obviously too much and she would not borrow it to me. Host is very greedy concerning money and you won't get what you...

Hostel Likancabur is a pretty basic hostel. It provides you with exactly what you need, and not much more. But, that's okay! There's so much to do in San Pedro that you probably won't spend much of your time in the hostel anyway! The hostel is quite clean, but not spotless. The showers are warm enough, but not hot, the...

I wouldn't recommend this place, unless you want to save money. Did the dorm room, 8000 pesos per person for bunks. Room was dusty, but you get used to it at night. I think a double private room with shared bath was 18000. Good: cheap, breakfast included, staff pretty nice, good location Bad: wifi never worked, hot water worked 1/2...

Everything is wrong about this hostel. Wi Fi doesn´t work, cold shower in private staff. Horrible and rude (young) staff. They changed the price after a confirmation. Rented out another room after it was already booked. Private room is warm and without fresh air. Left after one night. Most horrible stay I had in all my weeks in Chille.

we shared a triple room for a reasonable price but no kitchen privileges. We couldn't even store leftovers in the fridge. The female staff were very unfriendly. The owners son was helpful. There was no soap or toilet paper in the bathrooms and no towels available even at a cost. A basic place to have a bed but nothing else.
