“Very nice stay”
Reviewed 16 January 2013

First of all, we were floored by the prices hotels were asking for a private room in Cajamarca. We tried 5 other places before Los Jasmines and every one was between 110-140 soles for a very basic room with no breakfast included. We were able to get a room at Los Jasmines for 80 soles with a private bathroom (no breakfast) and it was very comfortable and clean.
This hostel was conveniently located just a block away from the main square and we were able to walk everywhere.
Our room was cleaned everyday and the owner was always available if we had questions. However, no English was spoken by the staff (but that is common in Cajamarca, not a touristy town).
There is also nice little cafe in the courtyard that serves beautiful banana bread and fresh juice.

Los Jazmines is a great place to stay and very close to the Plaza de Armas. It is kind of hidden away as it doesn't have a big shiny entrance as the hotel next door, but it's a jewel in its own kind.

My room was on the other end of the court yard, away from the street, with a shared bathroom. Everything was clean and towels were provided. I did miss getting a small bar of soap for the bathroom though (which I did get in other hostals/hospedajes during my trip).
The bathroom was very clean as well and has hot water for most of the day. The only time it didn't have much (hot) water was in the middle of the night when I tried to take a shower.

The cafe downstairs is superb, I got some of the best coffee I had here in Peru (and I have lived here for 10 months) and they also serve a superb fruit salad with yoghurt and honey.

There is free Wifi, even though my smartphone (Nokia Lumia) had difficulties grabbing it. Probably due to my own lack of knowledge of the proper configuration though, because on another phone I had with me it worked just fine!

All in all a great place to stay!

On arrival the hostal looked great...

A nice big open courtyard/garden. An espresso cafe! The room looked good and although overpriced we decided to stay.

First there was no hot water, they had to go turn that on and would take a few hours. When it did warm up it provided 3 minutes of luke warm water. It turns out the nice looking wooden panel walls are paper thin so we could hear the animal next door hocking his lungs up all night and watching TV. Combined with an uncomfortable bed and awful pillows it was right down there. 80 soles wasted.

If you do stay the hostal is located on a very busy road so make sure if you stay you get a room at the back.

As a final insult in the morning the 'Espresso cafe' does not have a working coffee machine!!! Haha. What a joke.

If you do stay.... good luck

Oh almost forgot the Wifi does not work in the rooms and is very slow.

Room Tip: Try a room at the back. We didn't but i can only guess it would be a little better.

Hospedaje Los Jasmines is a wonderful find, only 2 blocks off the Plaza de Armas in Cajamarca. It has a nice courtyard but the room we stayed in (70 soles/night) was in the back of the hotel, on the 2nd floor, with a view of the back garden. Nice, clean rooms with comfortable beds. Very quiet if you get a back room. There is a nice cafe that opens for breakfast with espresso drinks. WiFi works well in the courtyard, not so well in the rooms. We checked out a few hotels at this price and a little higher and this place was definitely the best.

Room Tip: If you are two or more get one of the back rooms over the garden.
