This is a very quaint pretty hotel close to the main road with the shops. Very pleasant rooms with space and nice clean bathrooms. The hotel has a nice communal courtyard and has a very open feel to it all. Bigger than it seems and has a camping area at the very back but do not let this put you off - it is at the very back and there was no noise from this. In fact I never even saw the area! Would definitely recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Stronger wifi connection near the hotel reception

Puritama gets all the basics right - location, cleanliness and comfort (by hostel standards) - and for 28,000 Chilean Pesos for a 2-person room offers good value. It's not a party hostel, and is meant for those who would like to turn in early and get a good night's rest before embarking on an early morning tour.

The location - on the main street of Caracoles, but just one block off the start of the really commercial section - is excellent. The bathrooms are very clean and there is a well-stocked kitchen as well. Wi-fi is available, though this does not reach all the rooms yet. There is a nice patio for guests to sit and relax.

While all the factors mentioned are very good, there is nothing which stands out as excellent (perhaps the location), hence the 4 stars and not 5.

Room Tip: Near the patio, where you get wi-fi.

We stayed a few days at the Puritama. First, they were almost fully booked so the very accomodating lady at the front desk kindly let us (a family of 5) share a quadruple room. It was cute and cosy and cool. The garden is great for having breakfast (self catered) or lunch or just reading and relaxing. There is a small kitchen available for heating water for tea or coffee. It is a pity the kitchen is not available for more serious cooking.

When we arrived in San Pedro de Atacama, we were meant to be camping. However, after a long journey from Bolivia a bed was needed. This hostel did the trick. They had availability for my husband and I, as well as some of the others from our group. We had a reasonable priced double room. It was modern, clean, a comfortable bed and a hot, powerful shower. Just what was required. There was a laundry service and excellent wifi was available. No breakfast or bar, but there is a communal kitchen if required. My husband ended up getting sick and we needed to extend our stay and the staff were very accommodating and helpful.

Room Tip: A standard double is great!

Stayed in a double room which was lovely. Very clean. Thoroughly cleaned after the first night. No breakfast available (but plenty of options nearby) and no air conditioning in our room (but there is a fan which helps in the heat). Excellent location and good wifi. We availed of the laundry service which was very good and the clothes were very clean on return.
