This place was alright for the price we paid. It lacked hot water and the "curfew" is kind of early but the rooms aren't overly dirty and we got a room for two with private bathroom for 25 Lucas in the summer. Also it is about a half hour walk to the beach, 5-10 minutes to bus station and same...

This place is located centrally, and not super far from the beach, maybe 30 minutes. The owner is the kindest person and very efficient. The roooms are clean, there is hot water. Good value for the room and very close to the bus stop. They also provide you with breakfast.

Good location, only 10 or 15 minute walk to main bus terminal and Plaza de Armas. Maybe 45 minutes to the beach. Nice owner/manager, good breakfast (I don't think it's available with all rates), and convenient kitchen. Internet very fast but WiFi went out of service each morning I was there though I could attach my laptop to ethernet cable...

Stayed for two nights on a tour of northern Chile. The hostel was very cheap just over 7 GBP a night. It was located 5 mins from the bus terminal which was really handy and approx 10 mins from Plaza de Armas. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and Antonio, the owner was really friendly and a great help....

I gave this hostel an excelent rating, for the quality of stay it delivered for the price I was charged. The hostel is clean and located in a quiet part of La Serena, which is pretty serene anyway. Despite the quietness of its location, Hostel Jofre lies near all places of interest to most tourists. In addition, Sr. Antonio, the...

Antonio is a great host!!! This hostal is fantastic. The rooms are super clean. When you enter, an immaculate tile floor extends through the entire area which makes walking around a pleasure. We had a "dormitorio" style room which was right next to the shared bath, but you can have a room with private bath. Since it was winter (end...

Antonio Jofre is the owner of this beautiful hostel in La Serena. The rooms are very nice and they have hot showers. Antonio gives you good advice about tours and he helps you in many ways. The garden is a nice place to relax. You can use the kitchen and internet for free!

Got a Lonely Planet recommendation. The current price for a double room is 14000 Pesos (in Sept 2005, maybe more in the summer). He rented the room to me for 8000 Pesos because I travelled alone. The hostel is located between the City Center (Plaza de Armas) and the bus terminal, so you can walk both ways and don't need...
