“Just needs a bit of work”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2012

The room was a bit small, but comfortable with a tv and nice bed. The day we arrived there was no hot water, and the following morning there was no water at all for about an hour. For the price we paid I expect more from a hotel. However, they have an excellent kitchen and the owner was very friendly. Overall, it wasn't a bad place to stay, but I would look elsewhere on a return visit.

The hostal is ok, nothing fancy but nothing else on its price range. I disliked the fact that the owners, specially a young lady, smoke right in front of the guests at the hostal living room. They think that's ok. It's just terrible.

great find when i arrived in town without a prebooked room for the night ... this cozy inn is right around the corner from the popular Surf House, however for my stay was perfect with its smaller size and less expensive price for similar ammenities. i am very please with the cozy homey feel and the very friendly service, will definatly stay again.

Pros and Cons: The only con is that the hot water was only lukewarm. Breakfast included coffee, tea, bread, butter and a delicious assortment of jams. Internet was available to guests. Good maid service. The rooms and bath were cleaned daily. The atmosphere was relaxing. Having a refrigerator and kitchen privileges was definitely a plus. With fresh seafood a few blocks away, my wife cooked in the evenings. The family that owns the hostal were gracious and very helpful with info on where to go and what to see in and around Arica. If we return to Arica, we will stay at this hostal again.
