  • Cesar invited us to a BBQ one night, and made the best pisco sours and earthquakes! He truly never stops to ensure your stay is special and is very generous. Breakfast was the best we've had with fresh bread, still warm sometimes, meat, cheese, cereal, etc.

    The place is very close to the bus station, around only 10 mins walk. It's a great location, very central . The beds and bedding are lovely and new. Spacious rooms, great environment. Cesar has huge plans for the place, so it can only get better.

    This Hostal was amazing. It is nice, clean, and safe. It is literally 5 minutes or less from the central plaza in La Serena, also only 3 minutes from the bus terminal. The owner is super cool and fun. The breakfast is big and includes a lot of different foods. This is the perfect Hostal and the price is very cheap for what you'll be receiving! It's central, great price, new, fun, clean, and just perfect for any type of traveler! I can't say enough nice things about it, but if you're staying in La Serena...I don't think you can find a better place than the Valle Mistral.


    We stayed at this hostel for 3 nights, and loved this place. Cesar and his colleagues are adorable and always available for your well being and give you travel advice, restaurants ... The hostel is charming, tastefully decorated. There is a small patio and one can go to the rooftop to watch the sunset. Good breakfast is very plentiful. The room is new, spacious, with hot shower. The bed is very comfortable and the room is quiet. The hostel is well located, 10 minutes walk from the bus terminal, and 5 minutes from the center of La Serena. It is recommended and thanks to César.
