The hostel is well located, just a few meters from the main street, close to all the bars, pubs, restaurants, banks and the main square. Breakfast is great with many options as oranges, bread, te, coffee, mate, milk, cereal, bread, cookies, butter, dulce de leche and jam. Toilets and room were spotless, hot water in the showers which sometimes could...

I had an amazing time in the hostel. The ambience is really cozy and relaxing. Its located just a few meters away from the center of the town. Staff did everything they could to make my stay comfortable and memorable.

I stayed at Waira Hostel for two times with some friends and we really enjoyed the time there. The rooms are lovely, cozy and clean, only the bathrooms aren't so big. The price is cheap for the quality of the place. And also the breakfast is very good!

That night I got to Tilcara for the first time to 1am and asking, some guys recommended me: Waira Hostel. I don't remember the name of the owner, this person very kindly helped me with my backpack and we went to her hostel to 2 blocks from downtown. As a warm and sweet home.

The place is big and relax. The kitchen is great and the wifi was working normally. The location is also good. However, the bathrooms (both common and individual) were not really clean, and neither our room. We had a lick with the toilet flush in our room that couldn't be fixed. Not bad, not great

Good value hostel. Nice breakfast that is practically all-you-can-eat. Lovely courtyard area with seats and hammocks. Bathrooms need renovating, especially the showers. Wifi is also a bit patchy. Great location, close to everything.

This hostel could be really nice because of the large common areas outside (hammocks, tables, parrilla). But the facilities in the rooms aren't great, small, musty, a toilet that needed to be fixed after every flush and a cold shower. I can live with that but what made this a 1 star review was a staff member waking us up...
