“La casa maravillosa de Gabriela”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

My friend and I travelled throughout South America for three months and Gabriela's house has to be the most warm, hospitable and lovely place we stayed at. Gabriela did welcome us with open arms into her house and we felt so comfortable there that we extended our stay in Pisco Elqui. Gabriela's house is an oasis of peace and tranquility. We were given a lovely, cozy and very clean twin room which we loved and you can use her kitchen to cook and of course her relaxing porch to have breakfast, dinner or simply watch the stars at night. Gabriela is absolutely charming and she made us feel completely at home. Sam and Estrellita, her cute puppies, are also great characters and they used to jump on our beds every morning to wake us up. If you are looking for budget accommodation and a lovely place to stay with a great host look no further. Gabriela doesn't advertise so you will only hear about her place through word of mouth. To find her place walk up the hill from Hostal Triskel about five minutes and her house is on the left hand side or ask any locals for la casa de Gabriela. Everyone knows her in Pisco Elqui.

Room Tip: The twin room on the porch is absolutely charming.

I arrived at Hostal Baquedano through a recommendation from Vicuña... I arrived in Vicuña through a recommendation from La Serena... etc. Basically it was word of mouth that unexpectedly led me here! The first time I stayed, there was another group of travelers who were possibly going to occupy the rooms. So, Gabriela set me up in her personal taller where she had another bed. The room was large and it was great to be able to see her works as well.

The hostel is a steep hike away from the plaza, but it's very tranquil and close to the mirador as well, for walks at night to see the stars.

I liked it so much that I came back to Pisco Elqui in November 2013 with my boyfriend, and we spent our nights at Hostal Baquedano.

This place exudes peace and quiet and friendliness.

We stayed for 3 blissful nights, met some really great Chileans and Europeans, found our own space and peace, and were treated to warm hospitality and friendship by our beautiful host, Gabriela.

While all of Pisco Elqui is a treasure, it was great to walk up the hill and get away from the tourist crowds (and noise) to our own little tranquil haven. This place is highly commended by two grumpy, hyper critical old travellers.
