I booked this hostel primarily based on location. The service was touch and go. When we first arrived early in the morning, we were greeted with tea de coca which was very nice. However, as far as the continental breakfast goes, that was the only time it was actually offered to us, the other time we had to ask. We were also once refused breakfast service because it was past 10 am, but the day before we had received breakfast at 10:30am.
The first day we got there we were let in our room to rest. a couple of hours later we get a knock on the door and a lady wanted to come in and change the sheets because it hadn't been done yet. Kind of a turn off and made us wonder if the room had actually been clean.
The hot showers are nice, if you want sleep get a room in the back because there is a club down the street from the hostel.
Also, they offer private airport pick up for 5 soles/ person. There were two of us and they charged us 15 soles instead. I think taxi's probably do charge that, but it's discouraging/annoying that they tell you it will cost one thing and ends up costing another.
Also, I'm not sure if this is a hostel for those who want a late night here or there. One time we came back at 12:30 am and had to knock several times for someone to let us in. I am unaware of and was never told of a hostel curfew. The staff did seem annoyed when asked to be let in to the place as per other reviews.
