Not very friendly staff
I spent with my girlfriend two nights in hostal La Florida in San Pedro de Atacama. The rooms were simple, but nicely clean. The toilets were unkept and the mens shower room had only cold and once lukewarm water. There was only once hot water in womens shower. There is one PC with internet for free. We hired two bikes from the hostel with one spare tire. I had to change it after thirty minutes using the bike. The spare tire blew out in another fifteen minutes. We had to walk back to the hostel. There we were told we had had a bad luck. No refund was provided. The hostal staff was lax. The way we could close our room was not very secure, just a tiny padlock on a loose latch.

Absolutely to avoid!
Very noisy and unsafe. The door of the room was supposed to be close but in the night a person entered the room, you can imagine. The kitchen and the bathroom are all but clean. about the shower you need to be very lucky for the hot water. The management and the person in the hostal are not the most friendly.

We stayed here because every other place in town was full. It was more expensive than other places but offered no services. There was no hot water (for three days), there was no internet, even though both were advertised. We were told to wait at the bus station on the day we checked out, even though our bus did not leave until late in the afternoon. Management was extremely unfriendly for no apparent reason.

  Residential Florida is conveniently located on the road which runs from where the buses stop to the main street in town. You'll find it on the right hand side, about half-way along. Its a reasonably large hostel with comfortable rooms and great common areas, including a large lounge and an external courtyard filled with hammocks. Hot showers are available however the hot water is sometimes a little erratic so be prepared to settle for a cold shower if you're luck isnt in, eg if the pipes have frozen solid during the night. Kitchen facilities are available and the hostel has water and other beverages available for purchase. The main drawback with this hostel is the management can be somewhat adversarial, making the atmosphere here less friendly or pleasant that it might otherwise be.
