The facility is well-maintained. I had a small room, which was fine, but there were (more expensive) rooms in the back portion of the premises that were nice. The breakfast is excellent. There are clean bathrooms and sheets. They can help organize tours for you, if needed.
No towels for the budget rooms. I wasn't shown all that was available; I needed to ask about all of that. It's easier when the staff simply gives you a quick tour and gives you reminders. They should remind us that breakfast isn't included and that it should be paid for (with the budget rooms).
They force you to pay cash with the excuse of a tax of 18% if pay with card, that is not legal because that tax doesn’t apply to foreigner but even if you tell them they will not change it and say “we give you opportunity to do not pay the tax by paying cash”. The room was small and under the roof, so was not possible to stand in it.
Clean ,close to center, felt safe and the staff were great. Also have hot water for the showers which is a privilege in this cold cold desert! Has internet but some areas the signal is not that good.
It is very noisy. The cleaners basically wake you up at 9 weather you want or not as they clean they keep talking on the corridor for 2 hrs minimum without any considerstion for the people trying to get few extra hours of sleep! So if u want to get a sleep later forget about this hostel as u will wake up early or break your sleep weather you like ot or not! And this happened every day! Also the rooms are very very very cold. It is warmer on the corridor and the bathrooms than my room . I basically froze to death and could not sleep I used my trousers and winter jacket and still could not sleep for hours without gloves and hat so really really be aware there is absolutely no heating at all as they advertise is false!! Outside 20 degrees during the day and in the room like less than 10 !
good kitchen, friendly staff, quite good location, unique atmosphere, hot water
a little cold room
This is probably the cleanest hostal I've ever stayed in. Toilets are cleaned a few times a day. Kitchen, available to guests, very clean and tidy. It is very cheap and economical and about 5-10mins walk to the centre of town. The Residencial Restaurant Chiloe is at the intersection of Domingo Atienza and Gustavo le Paige. Walk out the front gate, turn right walk 50m. The restaurant is almost always empty so you get served quickly. The food is excellent and most days I ordered the "menu del dia" CLP6500 which was very tasty and filling. Perfect for a quick meal when I would get back late evening from touring/photography in the calderas.
The listing on booking.com said that onsite parking was available. It isn't. There is a hotel and hostal on the same site. Parking is for hotel guests not hostal guests. If available you can park there. I was only able to park there 1 night out of a 9 night stay. All the other nights, I parked in a public parking area 400m away. There are only two showers for men (and probably two for the women). In the mens, one cubicle has hot water, the other had cold water from both hot and cold water taps. So you have to make sure you get the shower cubicle with hot water. Stairs to the rooms are very steep and narrow. Very difficult to carry a large suitcase more suited to a backpack. There is no heating anywhere so the rooms and everywhere else is very cold. This is all to be expected in such a cheap place. Just make sure you have a sleeping bag and extra warm clothes to wear in winter.
When you a stay at Hostal Corvatsch in San Pedro de Atacama, you'll be in the historical district, just steps from Plaza de San Pedro de Atacama and San Pedro Church. The front desk is staffed during limited hours.
