Bed was comfortable. It was cheap.
There was loud music playing until after midnight. There was only hot water only between 10am and 3pm so we couldn't get a warm shower since we were only staying for one night and checked in after 3 o'clock.
The place wasn't expensive and comfortable beds.
The showers dont have hot water at night. Only at noon.
Very nice place with a great terasse to enjoy the sun! I recommend the tour they offer to the Colca canyon. We had a great time there!
Some cuttlery in the kitchen would be nice
Was in two difference single rooms, the first was upstairs and okay, the second was on the ground floor and super comfortable and romantic. Great value, and towel hire is only 2 soles, a big water only 4 soles, and the property seems very authentic and easy on the eye.
No breakfast included, but it’s so cheap to stay and there are many cheap and tasty spots around
The rooms were very clean, aesthetically pleasing, and the beds very comfortable. The location was a couple of blocks from the plaza and the staff was very helping.
The showers are powered by solar panels for hot water which resulted in us not taking a hot shower at all during our stay. I agree with the other reviews that this is the biggest downside to this hostel. It will be very rare if you ever get even warm water at the times they recommend to shower: 11 am - 3 pm
Clean, safe, well located, good internet connection and a friendly staff.
Only few steps to Main Square by the main walking path, the hostel has a basic kitchen and a pleasant terrace with views of the volcanoes .
We are environmentally responsible, we use solar energy to heat water for showers and propose different types of landfills for selective distribution of waste.
The property has free internet WiFi and propose services as Airport shuttle and laundry.
We also propose excursions to Colca Canyon and rafting at the Chili River.
