This is a nice clean hostel. We had a private room with bathroom. Good size. English speaking staff. From this hostel you can book different kind of tours in the area like the Islas Ballestas a cycling tour and many more things. You can relax in the shared garden and meet some fellow backpackers. At the top of the hostel... More

The guesthouse has a nice location and really friendly staff. The common areas are nice, even one with hammocks. The room is clean but basic. We stayed in a double room with private bathroom and the room was small and basic. But fine for a overnight stay.

My family of 3 stayed 2 nights here. The place is clean and welcoming, and you can book your tours through them for a good price. We used the kitchenette for breakfast, costing us only 1USD with food from the local store. The staff is very friendly and made us feel welcome with our 4 year old. They were knowledgeable... More

I booked a private room with own facilities and that proved to be good value. I also booked the double tour with them, to the islands and the national park which again was good value. Overall, I didn't have much interaction with the owners - but they seemed pretty friendly - limited English, but better than my very limited Spanish!... More

The hostel is nice and nice atmosphere. It's becoming noisy early in the morning. The owners are incredible and let you feel comfortable. It's not very clean. The rooms smells humidity They offer 2travels which are the cheapest in the town.

Nice place, nice people. The owners very kind and friendly. I recommend this place very peacefull, with a big kitchen to share, close of the chaco bridge and very close of all too. I enjoy sharing room and bathroom (very clean) with a good price. They have single rooms with private bathroom.

I've been told the place has been renovated 6 months ago, but if that's the case they haven't done a great job. Walls left unpainted, cables hanging, doors not closing. Having said that, that's the standard in Paracas and if you are adaptable you can have an enjoyable stay. I stayed in the 10 bed dorm, but there are lots of... More

This hostel is definitely one of the best I've found in Peru. The price of my bunk room didn't include breakfast, but there was always hot water and tea available, and they even boiled enough water so we could have potable water! So thoughtful! Lidia was extremely helpful and accommodating, making sure we got the best experience possible. I would... More

We stayed in a double room with private bathroom. The room was nice and clean, the bed comfortable, the bathroom clean and big enough. Unfortunately, the wifi didn't work in the room which was annoying when wanting to plan the next days. Breakfast wasn't included but the kitchen was good. The hammocks were super to chill in for a bit.... More
