Our stay at Sunny Days Hostel was terrible. From reading other reviews, Ross seems to be the key to having a good stay here but unfortunately he was not available when we arrived. Upon arrival a lady grunted and pointed at the kitchen, bathroom and our room as a form of introduction. Our room was located right beside the common area and as a result it was not quiet enough to sleep until 3 am. We stayed just one night and got the next flight out of Arica. When we were packing we found old sand in our bed sheets (this sand was also in the shower) and again I found the same dirt on my clothes and arms when we got to the airport. A terrible experience which was a surprise following the strong reviews of the hostel on Tripadvisor and other sites.
