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...

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...

I stayed two nights at this hotel in November 2014. I enjoyed my stay at this hotel. First, the location is perfect - it's at one end of the main tourist street. The hotel has a lovely inner garden/courtyard which is a great place to relax in the sunshine or shade, depending upon your preference. My room was quite comfortable,...

We stayed here 4 nights and we found the place quite pleasent. I must admit, you get better places for the money, but probably not in San Pedro de Atacama. We have looked at so many different hostels and Hotels and found this one of the better options. The patio is very nice. The rooms are average, but for our...

There is no soap, no windows in the rooms and the shower does not work properly. When asked to fix they became angry. Also not one word of English is spoken by any hotel staff. There are better hostels for your money!!

Before arriving, we were told the rooms would be 12 mil pesos a person but upon arrival, we were told that our rooms had been given to other people and we would have to share two rooms for 5 people, each with one double size bed. Not only did she not give us a discount for three people sleeping in...

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Hostal Puritama. Their location is as good as it gets on Caracoles street, very close to all the good tour agencies and restaurants. The staff was fantastic. They heated up the water extra when I asked how warm the showers were. They organized two great tours for me with very good companies. When I...

When you are in hospitality business, you need to meet certain ethical criteria and this place definitely does not. First of all, this place is overpriced like the rest of the town and this is one of the cheaper accommodation you may find. We stayed there 4 nights and in our last night we had to change the room because...

We ended staying here for 6 nights, as we found it difficult to leave San Pedro, partly as it's a great place and partly due to the demand for buses!!! Pros.... Good staff, great location, good common area, nice kitchen, comfortable beds, good shower, quiet and relaxing vibe (especially in rooms at the end of the garden), very clean throughout,...

The place is quite clean but 2 days into our 4 days stay we got the last night cancelled simply because a bigger group had arrived and they needed the room. We were simply told that it was "the boss' decision". We couldn't talk to the boss because he was "far away". It should be a basic premise that one...
