We stayed here for two nights and were 100% satisfied. The hostel is only 5 mins. from the center and all the historic attractions. Supermarkets , ATM's etc. are also near by. The hostel is big and roomy, there are no common rooms in that sense because it is going more into the direction of a hotel, something that did not bother us really. We had a huge double room with ensuite bathroom, very clean and very quiet. We even were aloud to leave our luggage in the storage room while we were hiking in the colca canyon and afterwords just went there to get them back and left to catch the bus towards cusco. The informations provided by the reception personal were accurate, the company which they recommended us for doing the colca canyon tour was indeed very good also. At the end we were sad not having the time to stay longer.
