It's the owners who truly make this hostel as good as it is. Jose is a fountain of knowledge - he's like an encyclopaedia of information for the area, local tours and activities. While his wife Doña is always ready to welcome with a warm smile. Just a block from the main plaza, there are no bunk beds here - just nice three bed dorms with TVs for those who want some downtime. Adequate kitchen, hot water, great laundry service, wifi can be slow at times but when it's good it's good (and works al over the hostel even in bedrooms). Thought has been put into this hostel - little things like having a bedside table with reading lamp for each person, hooks and shelves in the bathroom for your stuff, loo roll and soap in each toilet, clothes line on each floor for drying towels etc. highly recommend this hostel also for its sociability and Jose provides you with all you need to fill every day in Chachapoyas!

This perfectly located hostal would be nice anyway but it is made into a winner by Jose and Dona, plus everyone else who lives or works there! They are so friendly and helpful and you feel like part of the family straight away.

The rooms are also clean, spacious and the beds comfortable. Plus you get a towel, always nice. The kitchen is clean and well stocked too.

The only downside was really unreliable WiFi but with internet cafes everywhere in Chachapoyas, plus such informative hosts, it wasn't really an issue. You can also use the hostel computer if you need.

Clean, comfortable, hosts welcoming and helpful with advise about Chachapoyas. Nice kitchen with groups of guests making space to cook around each other. Best of all (you will appreciate this if you've been traveling in Peru) it has toilet seats! Everything works, even the hot water. Quiet spot within a few steps of the square. Highly recommended.

I had a wonderful stay here. It was one of my highlights of being in Chachapoyas. The place is clean and friendly. Jose and Dona were very patient and informative and helpful. I also had the best sleep here in the super comfy bed. !

If there are Hostel owners anywhere in the world who work harder for their guests than Jose and Dona, I would be amazed. From the moment we were met off the overnight bus at 6.00 am until the time we left 5 days later our every question-and we had a lot!- were answered. Trips to Kuelap, Gocha Falls, vegetarian food, mountain bike hire and coffee from the excellent Cafe Fusiones not to mention advice from a doctor friend when diarrhoea struck...The Hostel is clean and social- and perfectly placed to explore the town..don't miss the market! Jose and Dona are as proud of Chachapoyas as they are of their Hostel. This is a centre for world class archaeological sites, stunning natural landscapes, wondrous wild life and the friendliest of welcomes. Top place.

Room Tip: We had a triple room which was next to the office and kitchen so not the quietest but we were offered other rooms but never got round to changing!
