Liked: The atmosphere is really great at Arica Surf House!And one of the best things is the big common area, half inside half outside. in this room there is also the big kitchen, which is well equipped.Definitely one of the best hostels i have stayed in during my travels!

Disliked: The dorm has 12 beds, which can be loud. But until now I couldnt complain, it is surprisingly quiet. But that could have been luck...

Liked: The 11 bed dorm was surprisingly compfy and quiet. Common area with big tv screen and couches are very nice to chill, kitchen is quite big. Breakfast was amazing! And a very good location in the city center. Would stay there again.

Liked: Like everybody else here said before the staff is very friendly and helpful. The atmosphere is relaxed and I liked the view up into the stars from the kitchentable. It is very clean and the dormitory has lots of space. If you need a very quiet and dark place to get a good nights sleep, then it is the wrong choice because you here the traffic from the street and the streetlights are in front of the window. But for me it was great. The beds are comfortable and the kitchen is really fully equiped. Good breakfast. I recommend this place.

Liked: It has a really relaxed atmosphere, very chilled. Like the fact that there are no bunk beds in the 8-bed dorm and that each bed has it´s own light and lockable box.

Disliked: Could do with a bigger girls´ bathroom.

Liked: We really enjoyed our brief stay at this hostel, we wanted to stay another night but unfortunately all of the rooms were booked. The owner is really nice and helpful and went out of his way to provide information to us. He also gave us a fan from the communal area as we were warm in our room
