The rooms were clean, but a little cold. There is a useable kitchen and bathrooms. The shower was incredible. The staff are friendly and there is a climbing wall if it takes your fancy. Arturo was also very lovely and hospitable offering us tea when we walked in the door. It is cheap and basic but great for budget travellers.

A relaxed place with cool owners. I came for a few days and ended up staying a week after planning various climbing trips with the people I met. The owners are very friendly and laid back and always hang out with you in the hostal. You can also rent their climbing gear which was new and good quality. And they...

I recently stayed here with my brother and my wife and had a great time. The price is also right. Arturo (staff member) was so good to us. I had altitude sickness and he made me tea. He is so social with his guests that we even shared a meal together. The rooms are nothing fancy but nonetheless you have...

Cheap at 20 soles a night, I used this place as my base between treks and mountains. Was great to hang out with other climbers and to hear about their travels. Downside is that hot water only available from 9am until it runs out around 4/5, and the organisation is a bit haphazard. My bed wasn't clean the second visit...

The hostel has everything you would need including hot showers / climbing wall. The rooms are quite basic, but the prices are very low and the beds are really comfy! Gustavo, the owner is unbelievably helpful with whatever problem, or if you're trekking / climbing around huaraz; a must!
