We had booked a double room, with balcony about two months in advance of our Inca Trail trek, having read good reviews here on TripAdvisor.
Having confirmed things by email, we assumed all was sorted. However, our arrival caused a look of panic and much hair tugging at reception...
We eventually were given an internal twin room, which was not what we were hoping for, but it was fine. The hostel itself was good - very good showers (powerful and hot) in our private bathroom, and everything was very clean. Walls are thin, so it is a bit noisy - the internal ventilation shaft carried quite a lot of noise from rooms above too.
So... we recommend it, it's good value, but do send an email before you travel to ensure they haven't forgotten you!
