I loved my time at the hostel. Hours are good and Matias is very caring and helpful. There is lots of activities in the city! The beach is great and there are lots of cool sports to try. Food and accommodation was great, the team of employees are very sweet and welcoming. Felt at home and safe there! I would totally recommend this experience! And hope to come back one day!

The restaurant/hostel team are super lovely & really made me feel at home!! They recommended me lots of things to do / and try !! Iquique outside the season is very quiet so it can be hard to meet fellow travellers but overall I had a great experience!

Genial! Estuve casi un mes y disfruté cada día de mi estancia. Nos llevamos de maravilla con el equipo de trabajo. Mi principal actividad fue lavar platos y hacer jugos. La comida estaba deliciosa y probé algunas comidas nuevas para mí. No fue tan fácil la despedida. Matías contesta muy rápido por la plataforma y fue muy ágil para confirmar mi estancia e incluso adelantar mi fecha de llegada. La ubicación del hostal está buena. Muy cerca de la playa caminando. Recomiendo al 100% y volvería a hacerlo definitivamente. Se trabaja bastante pero lo vale completamente!
