This hostel is a beautiful place, they have a kitchen open for everyone to use. Breakfast is included Peruvian style only bread, juice and coffee. We walked everywhere. The room was clean and the bathroom as well, the hot water is not consistent so you either burn yourself or freeze during your shower. Other than that it's good, keep in...

We stayed in a double room with a private bathroom for 3 nights and we really enjoyed our stay. It's not a party hostel and it was quiet while we were there. The building is central and secure. Our room was on the main courtyard so we had great wifi in our room, but I heard others didn't. We never...

Beautiful hostel, location is good. Hot shower is not consistent. Staff wasn't very attentive. I arranged to be picked up early in the morning (3:30 am) to Colca canyon. The manager told me to speak with the staff because he was busy. After having paid for the ride it never showed up the next morning. After speaking with the manager...

We stayed here for 3 nights in a private room. The room was huge! The shower was lacking as the hot and cold water kept going in and out causing either a boiling shower and then a freezing shower. Our room had high ceilings with a window up above that was too high to open. There was no ventilation in...

Lovely hostel. Pretty courtyard when you first walk in, which leads to spacious tv room with pool table as well as outside kitchen. It has a rooftop terrace also. Staff are english speaking and nice. Dorms are nice with good beds. Two points where this place falls down. 1) the traffic is loud a lot of the day as drivers...

I stayed here for 2 nights in a female 8 bed dorm. I decided to do the 2 night 3 day trek of the Colca Canyon and left my backpack at the hostel which they stored in secure cupboards. It was a sociable hostel and quiet at night which was good. The staff were friendly and helpful.

It wasn't perfect but I think deserved 5 stars for the overall experience. Pro - amazing well maintained building with lots of communal spaces. Breakfast was buffet with fresh bread, marmellate, cheese and ham, yogurt and cereal, juice, milk, coffee and teas all day. Well equipped kitchen. Friendly staff. Clean. Good location. I found a large amount of people around...

Unfortunately, even if this hostel was recommended by Peru Hop, there is nothing positive to retain from this place (except maybe a good location): 1- very tiny and basic room (not even a soap!) and a tinier bathroom 2- no housekeeping 3- when asked for a soap on the first day, the answer was a "cold" no 4- basic breakfast...

The hostel is central and absolutely beautiful, one of the nicest we've stayed in. As part of Peru hop we got a discount rate and was really cheap. The courtyard for breakfast is lovely and really relaxing. All was good except one night the bar was extremely noisy and we had to complain 3 times during the night. To be...

This place was great. Our Peru hop bus arrived at 5:30am and check in isn't supposed to be until 1pm. The staff was friendly and let us have breakfast while we waited. We got into our room at about 9am. The rooms and clean and the beds are comfortable. The breakfast was very good. Wifi was pretty good but got...
