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...

We stayed here through Peru Hop. At first we were a bit annoyed as we were waiting in the morning in the common area for a trip to colca canyon. When the tour guide arrived the staff told her there wasn't anyone staying at the hostel with our names (even though he had taken our passports and we had filled...

We only spent one night here, but they were having some celebration all night long which kept us up. They have a really nice courtyard area with the rooms around it, however the celebration was out there and sounded like it was in our room. Also, when we got there we were told that they had no clean towels and...
