Fabulous 8.8 From 84 reviews

Good 6.0
We stayed for four nights but only had any hot water on the first day. The room had no ventilation or fan and as the window opens directly onto the street and gets direct sun in the afternoon we had to keep the curtains closed all the time. Like a cave really.... The bed was comfortable and cooking facilities were fine. It has a nice interior courtyard. There's free WiFi but the service was intermittent.

Cute clean hostel, very nice hosts
So pleased with this hostel! The host was very nice and accommodating to us. It is clean with lovely peaceful patio in the middle of all the rooms. Great location and walkable to all restaurants and shops!

Fair 4.0
Overrated place
I chose the place based of the excellent reviews, so I had high expectations that were not met. First of all, the hostal does not have its own parking space as said in the description: the first night we were asked to park it in a garage at the back of a restaurant they own in a very tight one car space; the day after it took us the best part of 45 minutes and a lot of walking around to get the car because nobody had the key to open the garage door. After that we parked it on the road round the block where there was plenty of free space. Second, the room was the real bad part: peeling paint, musty smell, cracked doors, paper thin walls; I could hear literally anything going on in the rooms around us: snoring in the night, road traffic, any type of conversation or bathroom activity. Only way to sleep was with very good ear plugs. Bathroom sink had a timer tap like in public toilets, so had to push it every 10sec and no possibility to change water temperature. Pressure of water in the shower was good but only 30sec of scorching hot water and then cold water for the rest of the shower. No water during the night. Basic breakfast is available in a nice cafe two blocks away from the hostal... location is very handy to explore San Pedro. I am generally happy to rough it out or to stay in hostel but not to pay hotel prices for it. Bottom line is I would not go back and this is not the hidden gem described in the reviews, it is a very basic that it is not worth the money...

Best choice for airport access.
2nd time in a week as we enjoyed it so much 1st time. What was disappointing, as we did not know prior, was that the restaurant was closed. So no dinner and breakfast was not a buffet.

Great location - Friendly, clean and comfortable
Paula and her mother Erica were fantastic hosts, could not have done any more. Rooms were spotlessly clean and comfortable. Do not be put off by the small number of reviews, this little hostel is well worth staying at whilst visiting San Pedro de Atacama.

Clean and would recommend
The host was great and super helpful!! She lives there 24/7 so always able to help if we needed something. Place was also clean and close to the centre.

Three perfect days in San Pedro de Atacama
I was greeted by name and with a huge hug from Paulo as soon as I walked in the door. She helped sort through the various tours in order to make the best use of my time which was super helpful. I stayed in a private room. The bed/bedding was incredibly comfy. The shower always had hot water and good water pressure. They also have a real hairdryer which I loved. My room was spotless and cleaned daily. Daily breakfast was served at a charming cafe nearby and everything was delicious. WiFi was excellent. I loved it here so much that I stayed an extra night. If I’m ever in SPA again I’ll definitely stay at Barros.

A home away from home in Atacama
Barros nativo is such a special place. The location is great - so close to the main square but still quite. From the moment you walk in, Paula makes you feel at home. She is great with recommendations (and local tips) and also makes sure you know what you should/shouldn’t do to avoid altitude sickness. I had a late flight and her colleague stored my luggage and let me use the shower after I checked out. I didn’t want to Leave!

Well located hostel, clean and nice. Just that no heating in the winter months and evening could be cold.
