눉I note that some people gave this accommodation a very good and others a real bad review and I cannot explain this difference. Perhaps the rooms differ greatly … but for me - quickly viewed – they looked all very similar. Just that one room was equipped for 3 persons. How is it possible to give this accommodation a good review? For me it had the worst price-quality ratio I ever experienced somewhere and I do have some travel experience (in five continents). There was no breakfast possible. You can make coffee in a small kitchen. The room was cold - as cold as outside and it was July (= winter in Chile). The bathroom the same and during my three-night stay, I checked several times whether there was hot water in the shower. Never! I had to shave with my coat on (a funny sight, but only funny afterwards when I was back at home) The bathroom smelled like sewer. OK, you get used at that smell and you can lock the door of the bathroom of course. Don’t judge too much on the pictures on this site. Pictures may give an incorrect image. On my journeys I’m not looking for luxury. I have stayed in worse places (in other countries) but there I didn’t get a big bill and that makes a difference! Chileans conclude too easily that their country isn’t exactly cheap and that you have to accept that fact. Clearly, this is a fact but the hotel owners could learn to ensure some sound basis elements for that price. I really regret that I had booked online for three nights. My advice is: When you will arrive lately, book in advance only for one night and for the following nights go and check the places on the spot. Or better: make sure that you arrive early and don’t book in advance. In July (season with many European tourists) it is surely possible to find a room without reservations. Have a look outside the two or three blocks in the center. Try Lincacabur Street. There are some hostals.
눇The hotel manager did his utmost to speak English and he was really a sweet, kind man. He even let me use his cell phone once. He can book all kinds of tours for you (and these tours are the real reason to go to San Pedro). He also gives adequate information and advice on these excursions. I really hope that in the future this man will be able to complement his natural charm and friendliness with a concern to improve the quality of the accommodation. Then people will not leave San Pedro with the feeling that it was a real rip off. Oh yeah, not unimportant, the room and bathroom were cleaned every day and the bed was also made every day. It's possible here to save 19% taxes if you pay with cash in US dollars (not in euros). The change also consists of dollars.

눉Everything was wonderful! Not a bad thing to say.
눇The owners are so friendly and helpful, and they provided THE BEST service we had from a hospedaje on our entire trip. Anything you need and they will find it for you (whether it's recommendations for things to do in San Pedro or additional items or services needed for the room). The hot water in the showers is amazing! We stayed at a few other places in San Pedro before, and most others do not have great hot water. The showers at Hospedaje Rural North Terra have great pressure and stay hot forever (even with 2 people showering back to back)! The beds are really comfortable and the rooms are super clean. The location can not be beat...it's super close to the main street. They will do your laundry on site which is so convenient. They also have portable heaters if the room is cold (many accomodation in San Pedro de Atacama use portable heaters). Overall, a great find in San Pedro at a great price.
