Backpackers San Pedro

We are a family business, whose owners, Alvaro and Fabiola, a young couple, decided to venture on their own business after working years in the tourism area. Alvaro is a professional chef and expert in international food; Fabiola is a tourism studies graduate and professional bilingual tour guide. Our hostel is oriented to the backpackers all over the world, who wants to live the warmth and good vibe that involves the abrupt and arid landscapes of San Pedro de Atacama.

Antes de llegar tenía mucho miedo de dejar todas las comodidades que tenía en mi ciudad, en mi hogar. Pero con el paso de los días me fui sintiendo como en casa y ahora lo es! Gracias a los chicos que trabajan en este hostel me he sentido muy bien. Todos son muy simpáticos y hemos hecho grandes amistades. Almorzamos juntos, salimos a fiestas, compartimos historias y experiencias. Nos apoyamos y también nos reímos de todo. No me queda más que agradecer a este grupo de personas que me hizo sentir como en casa. Mi nueva familia!

I´ve stayed at Backpackers San Pedro for a month, during october/2015, and had a great time! Since we were in low season by that time, the main job was to "hunt" guests arriving at the bus terminal and also from the Uyuni tours, and try to take them to our hostel. Also, the owners opened the posibility for me to cook for the guests and sell the food, so I could make a good extra money to use on my trip!
The atmosphere is really great, with two patios with hammocks and even a pool and ping pong table in one of them, where we used to light bonfires during the cold nights and have some drinks!
