I'm in two minds about this place. When we first got here, they accommodated us into rooms even though we didn't have a booking. They gave us a map, showed us where to go and showed us the facilities. There is a rooftop terrace, bar/tv room, kitchen, and courtyard. The rooms are reasonably good, although they do get hot at...

I stayed here for 5 nights on a trip around Chile. I found the staff here to be very easy going, friendly and helpful. I stayed in a room just next to the kitchen and courtyard area - it got a little noisy but that's to be expected in a hostal, I didn't find it to be too noisy. The...

Checked in here, after staying at their (almost) neighbors at Andes Hostal where there was a miscommunication about my reservation (overbooked). In Aji Verde the staff is more pleasant and easygoing. Moreover they have this nice view on the city. The bed was very comfortable and clean. Other facilities were all right. The price is about the same. I liked...

Made a reservation on booking.com for four nights. A few days before our scheduled arrival we were told that our room was now double booked for the first night and we would need to seek an alternative. Then in a second communication we were told there had been an "error" in the original quote and the cost for the remaining...

This is the first time I leave such a low rating review, but I'm sorry I have left with no choice. With signs on common area saying to be quiet after 11 am, the guests seemed to ignore it, nor the staff to stop them. They turned the music "extremely out loud" since 10 pm and turned the hostel into...

Good location, very handy to catch a bus to the Elqui valley, just around the corner, and 10 min walk to the centre. Nice common areas and good breakfast. The walls are super thin and you can literally hear EVERYTHING, from the doorbell to noise in the street. My room was located directly above the dining area and if there...

I enjoyed a lot my stay there. The view from the terrace is spectacularous and you can lend the..... How do you call that? The thing to look far away, the one that the pirats use.

We arrived on a Sunday night to be told the 2 month old reservation I had made with booking.com was missing and they were full The unhelpful staff only rang around after we insisted. The staff then listed us as "no show" on booking.com and charged us for a nights stay. Awful experience!!

A good location with a nice outdoors space and a good size kitchen. The rooms are clean but a bit damp smelling. The location is close to the town and bus station. The staff are very helpful with lots of useful tips and very friendly staff. The breakfast is good and included in the price.

We spent 2 nights here and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hostel is in a great location and rooms were comfortable. The staff are very friendly and helpful and really engage with guests. There is a garden and roof terrace overlooking the city which is a cool place to relax in the evening. Would recommend it for any travellers passing...

“The rooms on the left and right as you go into the hostel are noisy as they are at street level and the windows face the street.I had on one occasion people banging on the window because there was no one opening the door at reception”

“The rooms on the road level are very loud as they face the footpath and road. The curtains don't quite cover the whole window allowng passers by on the footpath to see inside the bedroom.”
