Alex, the owner, spent time to help us planning our trip all over Peru. His kindness and all his tips had been very helpful to us. Very good address for backpackers. Rooms are ok and the living room very cozy.

We waited close to one and half hours, owner came down from upstairs (!!) and said the hostel was no longer a hostel and they didn't... More

My friend and i stayed at The Gallery House for a week and the experience was fantastic. The place is super new and clean. The beds are super comfortable and practically brand new!

We really really enjoyed our stay at this hostel - the rooms were good, there was a playstation 3, good film library, helpful staff, nice bar and garden area. The decor was great, the security was tight and we would have stayed longer if we had the time. And they are building more rooms and a new game room!

They also have a bar, dining area, video games and BBQ area outside. Once a month, or something, they have a 'club night' where they play loud music until past 5am. They played music until... More

The rooms are spacious. The common areas are quite big (TV room with lots of DVDs, garden, Playstation 3, kitchen...)... But that is it. The hostel looks old and is not well maintened (walls, chairs stained, sofas destroyed). It clearly does not look like the pictures. The rooms are a bit dirty but cleaner than the common areas.
