Clean rooms, nice staff and a good breakfast! If you are searching for a budget hostel, i would recommend it. However, there are better options on the island, especially if you want privacy and comfort.

This hostel on Easter Island is great! It's located halfway between town and the airport and is walking distance from many of the sights on the island (for example Ahu Tahai, the museum, Orongo, etc.) The staff are friendly and helpful. All rooms have their own bathrooms, breakfast is included, and there is a kitchen and bbq area.

The staff here is so friendly, the come and pick you up at the airport and greet you with a traditional polynesian flower "lei". The rooms are basic, but comfy and the water pressure and temperature in the showers is okay. There are lockers to put your belongings in, just bring your own lock. Breakfast is included, normally bread with... More

The owners here, Diego and Mara, make this a five star place. This couple reached out to us as though we were long lost friends and invited us into their home with open arms. I was wonderful to see them each day as they started our day with smiles. They operate a good hostel, the beds are good, bathroom is... More

Jordi for all he was very friendly (and the only staff that actually would talk to guests) he did not pick us up on our arrival. so i was very worried at the airport having no cash and the ATM not working at the airport. The hostel was basically attached to a local family's house. The kitchen was barely managable,... More

I found this hostel to meet all of my needs and the staff, mainly jordi, were very helpful and let you know that they cared about your stay. I would rate my stay as very good because of the people it attracts and there is a laid back atmosphere which enables you just to have a good time.

This hostel just came under new management which, although good intentioned, is unknowledgeable about the location and seems under qualified for the job. When we asked questions about what to do and where to go on the island, the staff would become flustered and give us incorrect information. As a hostelling international hostel, I expected a lot more and was... More

This is a Hostel with great rate, great service, excellent people and nice location. It is close to the city main road, supermarket and airport. It is about 15 minutes walk from the pier (dive and fishermen meeting point). Diego (owner) and his wife are always ready to help and make our stay a great experience. We had breakfast every...

The rooms are comfortable, the showers warm and powerful, and the people friendly. Internet is a bit slow. Breakfast is alright. I would stay here again though. Great for the price.

Lucked out staying at this place. Rates included airport transfers and a tour of the city (brief as it was). I had a 4 bed dorm (no bunks) to myself during high season. No issues and they provided towels which many South American hostels charge extra for, granted that Easter Island is pretty expensive. Claudio the manager was great providing... More
