Having spent nearly a month in Peru with a group of students we had almost given up hope of finding a decent hostel. On entry to the Hostel up a narrow flight of stairs we thought 'here we go again' but at the top it opens up into a sort of courtyard - incredibly well kept, spacious and self contained...

This place is in fantastic location just a short walk from Plaza del Armas. The day staff were really helpful; one told us the restaurant we wanted to eat in had closed and gave us an excellent alternative recommendation. The clothes washing service is really good and they also looked after our rucksacks while we went overnight to Colca Canyon....

Very good location and very clean for the price. Big rooms and a beautiful terrace for having breakfast and dinner. Much cheaper than othe hotel and hostels from the same block. Just a block away from San Francisco's church and a few blocks away from the Plaza de Armas

The room was clean and very comfortable, we were really close to Monasterio de Santa Catalina and from Plaza de Armas. My room had balconies to the main street and it was noisy, it doesn't offer a complimentary breakfast but we were able to find a local cafe really tasty and cheep.

I stayed here in a single private room for 2 nights. The room was clean, and the water was hot. I was able to book my Colca Canyon trek through them with no issues & was able to leave my bag there as well. The courtyard area is a very nice place to sit and read. If you're looking for...

Stayed one night here- we booked a double with shared bath but they upgraded us to private bath for free due to overbooking. Nice clean place and friendly staff. The room is fine but not amazing- only windows are in the door. great for the price though.

We did not prebook a room and the rate was less than posted. The nine rooms are located around a center patio where breakfast is served. Breakfast is fresh juice, bread, butter, jam coffee and tea. The staff is friendly and helpful. There is a small selection of basics (water, food) for sale on site. The off street rooms are...
