I went to ask for avaibility on the Hostal Granada in Lima, with my partner, and since there were no rooms for 2 available, I told to the lady at reception that we would have been fine also with a double room (or matrimonial).
The lady said that the matrimonial rooms were (quote) :'only for couples, which means a man and a woman'.
Now, I am on a round the world trip, and travelling since 9 months and I have never heard such arbitrary and homophobic comments, in any othe Country visited in Asia,Australia New Zealand, and other South American Countries.
As long as I abide to the rule of the hostel, my sexual preferences should not be of any interest to the receptionist, and I should not be discriminated against it.
If this hostal wants to survive, the staff should get updated on human rights lessons and hospitality.
I would not reccomend anybody to get close to this backward hostal.
