I stayed here after having a horrible experience at Hostal Rural (dont go!!). HI offers comfortable beds, working WI-FI, hot showers and friendly staff, right in the centre of town, for leas than $20AUS a night, it was a bargain for this town! A stones throw from bars, restaurants and cafes, yet is still quiet. A cool little courtyard to...

1. We booked an en-suite room weeks in advance. Once we arrived, we were bluntly and without apology told that the owner or manager decided to give our room away to someone else that showed up that day! And no, no other en-suite rooms were available. 2. The showers and toilets were disgusting. Dirty water was ankle deep in the...

Very dbad, I dont recommend. I was there in January 2016. I booked my place by the site and paid a percentage to book online. Protests were happening on the roads of Bolivia. Because of these my arrival at Uyuni was delayed one day and as consequence my arrival in San Pedro also delayed a day. I could not warn...

Stayed here for two nights as base for San Pedro de Atacama adventures (altiplanicos, Valle de la Luna, etc). Well located (though it's hard NOT to be in San Pedro de Atacama!) on the main drag, and cheap. I haven't stayed elsewhere nearby, but this place was bare bones. No storage space for bags, bathrooms that were basically part of...

Do yourself a favor and stay anywhere else. Even though this place is slightly cheaper than most places in San Pedro, it is not worth the savings by any means. Just for a few extra dollars, you a newer, cleaner place with much better service and actual hot showers. I stayed here with two friends and we initially paid for...

The hostel is old, dirty, dark and empty. I was so depressed that I couldn't sleep here not even one night and I decided to go to another place even though I had already paid the first night. Compared to other places in san pedro it's slightly cheaper and the locatio is good (on the main street), but still, I...

We slept there three nights. The location is really good, but everything is a chaos. Every time we wanted to ask something, there was nobody at the reception. Two out of the three times breakfast was empty and we had to wait untill somebody could go to a supermarket or whatever. First we said that we wanted to stay two...

It's not matter of comfort, but there were sand on all the beds, there is a bar next to the hostel and you can hear the loud music all night long. The showers have only cold water (at night the temperature is really low there in the desert!). Ok, if you are Alexander Supertramp you can enjoy it otherwise I...

All rooms open into common courtyard where people drink/smoke/ chat or meet for early morning excursions, so noisy. Rooms are cramped, dirty and basic. Light fittings falling off walls etc. there's hardly any space for bags because of the overcrowded conditions. Some rooms look like a concentration camp. Bathroom and kitchen all awful. Toilet and shower Doors don't lock, they...

This hostel certainly does not live up to HI standards. Ill start with the good - the staff were very friendly and helpful. I did most of the tours offered after checking with other agencies and these were among the cheaper. The tours were great a well organised. The bad - the bathrooms were not clean and it was a...
