One of the Best hostels i have ever been.
Not a serious place.
The only good thing here is the location. Kitchen had bugs, administration decided not to respond. Bathrooms are clean but not enough to cover the passenger demand, so peak hours are a mess. Tobacco law is not respected here at night, so in mornings the place is a mess, filled with smoke and remnants of last nights party. If you complain about it, you will be asked to leave. Lots of stuff was stolen from the kitchen common places due to lack of preventive safety measures and drunk people who in the munchies eat everything they can. I made my complaints to several staff members who where not allowed to tell who the owner was until someone told me who he was, and to my shock and surprise one of the permanent party drunks was the owner, who kept smoking and strolling around the rooms flirting with random girls who clearly were uncomfortable. He did not care at all and cancelled our reservations the next day and we where asked to leave. Worst of all, this person tried to pick a fight with us and he could barely stand on his feet, a real shame for being at his mid 40s. worst stay in a long long time. 3 blocks north we found a street full of hostels, cheaper, more friendly and with a more serious focus on the customers.
great location, nice place, breakfast was average, computer extremely slow. overall a great place though.
Best hostel we've ever stayed
We stayed one week here. The double rooms are big, with balcony and a lot of light. The interior design of the hostel is wonderful, warm and friendly. It's very clean here. First I had to adapted to the showers, which are integrated in the toilet-cabin. But you don't recognize anymore after a while. Iquique has a big potential for touristic and sport activities. We went for surfing several times, because the beach and good waves a just a two-minute walk. Come here and feel really safe and comfortable!
Best hostel we've encountered after six months traveling. Stayed much longer than anticipated, as did many others, and was very sad to leave at it was such a comfortable and friendly place.
Cool relaxed place -- stayed here Feb. 2007. Nice rooms, friendly staff, although not the most outgoing atmosphere when I was there but guess that changes with the guests. Great location for the beach.
Absolutly amazing. very friendly owners. very welcoming. best hostel that i have stayed in around the world so far.
