After booking on the Web site for $12 per night, we assumed this was the amount we would pay. Little did we know upon checking out, they converted the payment to soles and used a conversion rate way above the average. We ended up paying quite a bit more and were extremely disappointed. They didn't bother trying to apologize or explain either. The staff spoke very little English and were generally unhelpful. The shower pressure was so light in order to get the warm water on... not hot. Bathrooms never had toilet paper and were cleaned randomly. Breakfast was ok. Nothing special. Just bread and jam. We're not picky and always laugh at negative reviews, but we were generally disappointed with this place considering it was #1 on trip advisor.
