This hostel is absolutely amazing. The 2 brothers running the show are very knowledgeable about all the treks you can do in Huaraz. You can also rent some trek fournitures there for a very affordable price.
I really loved my stay there
I came to Huaraz to stay for 3 nights and end up staying for 9!!! The hostel has everything you could need, good hot showers, comfortable beds, nice kitchen and common area and the service is unbelievable! Esteban and Benjamin are the best!!!! They are...More
