This hostel is located next to the Cruz del Sur bus station and shares a reception desk with them. Checking in can be a bit chaotic when you arrive on a bus together with 30 other people. The rooms are basic, towels are not included and internet was non existent in our room. It is located a little bit outside...

Sleeping right next to the bus station does not sound very glamorous. It isn't. But interesting enough the rooms are clean and it is a very convenient place to stay in Paracas. Additionally you barely hear the buses come and go. I would stay here again when visiting Paracas..

The Zarcillo Connections tour company is located right at the Paracas bus stop and is owned by the same owner Luis. The owner was very helpful and arranged a full day tour for us as we only had 1 day and wanted to do a few activities. The morning started with Ballestas Boat trip that was just great. The guides...

Nice, clean and modern rooms. Customer service is not good at all, except for the hotel's tour guide Luis. Check out is too early (before 10 am) and breakfast wasn't included...and for S/10 you would only get a piece of bread and coffee.

This hotel is super convenient for the buses as they stop right next to it. The rooms are away from the road so are not too noisy. The rooms are basic but clean and the staff are friendly. They can arrange all kinds of tours to the desert and Islands. Greta service and value for money

Part of the bus complex so definitely handy if your traveling with cruz del sur. The room was basic and our wifi did not work until the last hour of our stay, however nothing else wrong. Very basic breakfast. There are definitely many closer hostels to the main shops and restaurants

Part of the bus station complex, rooms are simple, showers warm, nothing fancy but as a base for the tours this is ideal. Noise was not a factor, especially given the early island tour start. Breakfast was fine 10 soles more. Zarcillo connections works out of the same office so arrive an book upon arrival Tours of the islands and...

Although this place adjoins the bus station and a busy road, I heard neither. Modern bathrooms, great hot water. I'm not even interested in TV, but they reduced the price because the TV was out for repair. Five minute walk to the embarcadero and lots of restaurants and shops along the water. Estephany was so friendly and helpful; put me...

Zarcillo Paradise is a Bed and Breakfast situated at the entrance of Paracas Town, and the reception also serves as the Cruz Del Sur Bus station. Boat trip to Ballestas Islands and Paracas Reserve Tour were the only activities I found interesting in Paracas - They can be done as a combined tour, between 7.30am and 4:30pm with any Tour...
