Backpacker's Hostel Iquique
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 January 2017 via mobile

First of all, the location is awesome. It's right next to the beach.
The hostel is pretty big but you won't notice because the rooms are distributed across different parts of the house and floors. And it's pretty popular, during the days many backpackers come by and ask for a place to stay.
The rooms are nice and spacious, shared bathrooms are totally fine and the kitchen is well equipped and big enough for everyone.
We would totally go again!

I planned for a 3 night stay and ended up staying for 11 instead. Fantastic location, only a 2 min walk to the beach, with a grocery store and mall close by. Great, helpful, friendly staff. Amazing kitchen and BBQ. The location and atmosphere were incredible. I highly recommend.

The hostel is in a great location. Right next to Playa Cavancha. It is so close, I could hear the waves sometimes. The vibe at the hostel is pretty chill and laidback. There is a cafe and bar attached to the hostel. There is a lot of space to hangout and chill plus there is table tennis and pool. Good spot to meet other gringos.There is the option to go surfing, paragliding, and sandboarding. Breakfast is not included in the price. It is about a 15 minute walk to the main plaza.
I stayed in the female dorm of five beds. Clean room and comfy beds with attached locker. But, the beds were shaky and noisy if top bunk was occupied. The bathroom was across the hall. It is recommended to take a quick shower, 3 minutes or less to save the water. Staff was helpful but seem uninterested and bored.

Pretty funky place with table tennis table,pool table and good garden for a drink.

Stayed in the dorms for one night cause we couldnt stay anywhere else. Dorm was ok but toilets were pretty dirty. I just used downstairs toilet which was actually kept clean i think.

Staff were ok when we checked in but after that i think they are genrally quite busy probably on their facebook accounts. Pretty un interested generally.

They also have a dog which is basically starved and completely miserable. staff dont seem to give a **** really. please give him some food if u stay here.

Overall the place is ok and great place to meet other gringos but is extremely overpriced. Check airbnb and you can get a private room for the same price as a dorm bed here.
