Map and Directions


1.-Hostal Downtown:
The address of the hostel DOWNTOWN is Calle Eduardo de la Barra 29. We suggest to look at the map in our website

From the bus station, walk down to the highway and take the right . Walk along it, ( aprox. 200 mts.) until you get to the main Avenue Francisco de Aguirre and take the right. Walk half block along Av. Francisco de Aguirre and turn left in Pedro Blanquier Street. Go on 2 short blocks along Pedro Blanquier and you will be in our street Eduardo de la Barra . Look for the sign "El Arbol " ( Eduardo de la Barra # 29 ).

From the airport take a taxi and tell the driver you are going to Eduardo de la Barra 29, behind the "Costa Real" HOTEL.

2.- Hostal "El Arbol" BEACH is located 5 block away from the bus station,3 blocks from the beach, 2 blocks from "Jumbo" supermarket and 3 blocks from big Shopping center "Mall Plaza La Serena".

From the Bus Terminal, walk to the highway (Ruta 5 ) and turn left.
Walk by the sidewalk along the highway, until you walk past the big Shopping Center " Mall Plaza La Serena". Cross the street "Huanhuali", and continue walking until you see the store "EASY". In front of it there is a footbrige over the highway. Cross it and you will get to some footbol fields.
Continue walking straight through the path along the footbol fields (200 mts.or about 3 minutes) and you will get to a dirt road. Walk towards the beach and you will see a wooden gate with a black sing that says : PARCELA 34 VEGA SUR. That´s the Hostel BEACH!
The hostel BEACH is located in front of a brick construction with a sign that says "Club Deportes La Serena ,OTMAR RENDIC".

We don't recommend taking a taxi to the hostel BEACH since many taxi drivers don't know how to get here, and they will try to charge you 2 or 3 times the price.
In spanish you need to tell the taxi driver: Vaya por la avenida Francisco de Aguirre hasta el INACAP. Continue por el camino de tierra hasta pasar las cabanas "Serena Dream". Doble a la izquierda y continue derecho hasta el "Club Deportes La Serena"
A taxi should charge you around $3.000 to $4.000.-

If you come by CAR please contact us at

****From the hostel DOWNTOWN to the hostel BEACH it´s about 15 minutes walking distance.
