I stayed at the Point for 6 nights and I could have stayed there much longer.
Let's start with the negative things, the staff was always nice but sometimes a little slow, e.g. when we came back from our inca jungle tour and brought some friends so that they would stay there as well, they started telling that the prices have changed and told confusing things, like there was space in that dorm and then there wasn't. finally everything got solved and our friends got to pay the same price as we did. also it happened twice to me that there was another person sleeping in my bed, after i discovered it, it always got arranged and i could sleep in another bed for the same prize. also my tooth paste and the tooth brush of my friend got stolen in the community bathroom and i heard about other things getting stolen, so don't put your tooth paste/brush in the community bathroom but in the lockers ;)
that might sound quite negative now, but the atmosphere made it all! i met the most amazing and relaxed people there. already during breakfast (extremely good: perfect, strong coffee, as much good bread as you want) you would constantly talk to other travellers, either to the ones working behind the bar or other guests, i made really close friends there and i never felt alone. in the nights i never felt like going out because the bar of the hostel offers beer pong, pool and such a cool atmosphere. the music is really good and diverse and the people just give it the vibe. you have to be the right person to like the hostel, but if you are, you will love it. i was really sad to leave, with all the people constantly around you, it started feeling like home. next time peru i might think of working there for a while :)
definitely recommended!! you get lots of cool people, activities (beer pong, table football, ping pong, pool, free shots), basic dorms and bathrooms, perfect location (5 minutes walk to plaza de armas) and really good breakfast for small money (22 soles for 12 bed dorm) ..
