Location is great.
Shared bathroom showers were very low power- more of a trickle.
The location is perfect, the space itself is really bright and calming and the roof terrace on the top floor has a gorgeous view!
The shower pressure on the top floor isn't amazing but the water still runs hot!
It is a very welcoming place, staff were very kind and always helpful (we arrived at 2 in the morning and there was a very kind gentleman who was there waiting for us). Rooms (we had private rooms) and communal spaces were well maintained and clean. Showers good.We did not use the kitchen facilities, so I can not comment on that, but the sitting areas were very comfortable. The area looked very safe ( there were policeman every 50 meters) and we were able to park our van , at no charge, just outside the hostel. The manager (Lourdes, I believe), was extremely helpful with recommendations of local places to visit and helped us organize our flight on the Nazca lines.
The common place is really nice and the location is very good.
There arent many electrical outlets (2 in a room for 4 people, and maybe 3 in common place), so its not that easy to charge your phone. Also you dont get a room key so everytime you want to go to your room you have to go to reception and ask for the key.
That we only had to stay one night. You can store luggage for free. Ideal location.
Ants all over the floor and even in the bed of our first room. Moved to another and there was still ants on the floor. Both rooms were on the 4th floor. Cobwebs all round room. The stairway and top floor smelt of cat urine. Cats kept trying to follow us into our room. Showers were awful and nowhere to put your clothes etc apart from leave them outside the cubicles. The towels provided are hand towel sized. Although it was reasonably cheap I still felt this was overpriced for what you get.
