Liked: The San Pedro desert is an incredible place to visit and this place is a reliable option. The fires in the evenin are really spectacular, though for some strange reason they only really seem to do them when the staff can be bothered- even in the middle of winter. Although, the main receptionist is really lovely and helpful.

Disliked: Synthetic bed sheets heets, no hot water, dirty kitchen, insufferably rude and unhelpful night porter- no chill out or communal areas other than outside fire place which is too cold when staff can be bothered to do one, arbitrary alcohol regulations

Liked: Nothing

Disliked: The hostel had poor wifi and was not very clean. During our stay they were spraying to kill flies and they had to close the office because so much poison had been sprayed. We also gave them our washing on Sunday evening. When we went to collect it on Tuesday, it had not been cleaned. We were told this was because it had rained for two hours on Monday evening. There was no applogy and they were completely nonplussed as to why we were annoyed. The directions to the hostel are also terrible making it very difficult to find. As we were searching for the hostel we encountered another couple who were equally confused by the directions.

Liked: Nice outside area with hammocks. Many bathrooms so it doesnt get crowded. Two kitchen.

Disliked: It is far out. Even though they say it is safe, it is scary to walk home alone by night as a girl. The internet is bad. Stayed in other hostel in san pedro where the internet was really good. So it exists.

Liked: Average hostel with basic facilities and a large common area.

Disliked: Internet was shocking but to be expected in San Pedro. Rooms can be very loud and staff did not enforce the quiet zone at midnight, which is frustrating if you have the popular geysers tour at 4:30am. Only one staff member seemed to know anything as everytime we needed help we were told to wait until he arrived.

Liked: campfire, hammocks, cats.

Disliked: it wasn't new or anything so shower is not the best but it was not unbearable and depends on where your room is, it can get quite noisy. However, overall, you get what you pay for and it wasn't too bad. all male staff were quite friendly and chilled but there was a female staff who was quite rude and unfriendly. make sure to get her know if you are gonna swap your bed with anyone in your room otherwise she tells you to pay for 2 beds. although I could avoid it thanks to another staff, her rude attitude was pretty upsetting.
