The Place is extremely unorganised and besides The lovely receptionist the owners are rude. Even though the Place seems Nice at first, it Lacks of Atmosphere entirely. There is No space where People can Hang out comfortably. The one Tiny Space that is offered is entirely crowded and doesnt fit more than 6 People. The kitchen was just disgusting, way to Tiny and horribly equipped. I would NOT recommend to stay there.

I would recommend this hostel! Breakfast us basic but you can buy extras. Showers are awesome! Nice terrace to chill during the day. Wifi was good and staff friendly and books tours and buses for you. Only negative, they were a bit unorganised and had to come to the rooms early in the morning to check which beds are available.

Great staff, super friendly and let us stay and use the facilities once we checked out as we had a late bus. Walking distance to all restaurants etc. Double room was big and clean with strong wifi and really hot showers. Was a bit noisy in the morning as everyone is up really early to hike so goes with the territory I guess! Would stay again

This hostel is great value considering it includes breakfast as well. Don't book your tours at the hostel as you can book with the same company (mony tours) in town for 10 soles cheaper - something I find a bit wrong that the hostel doesn't offer its guests the best price . Could do with another communal area other than the kitchen, as people often grouped together there

Pretty amature staff. Breakfast is not good.

Nice well put together Hostal. Has all the facilities you need for hiking the surrounding areas: messages, tours, equipment, storage and knowledge English speaking staff. It's clean and well worth what you will pay. Only downside for us was they seemed pretty pushy about going on tours when we wanted to organize our hikes, but outside that no complaints.

The hostel itself is perfectly fine, located close to the town and clean, with breakfast provided. Huaraz is a town for hiking and the hostel offers several tours. Unfortunately, the hostel staff were not helpful in booking these tours, could not give us basic information about how long/far/high the trecks were and booked us with a Spanish speaking guide when we specified we needed English. Luckily another person on the tour was able to translate the safety instructions for hiking the glacier.

Great hostel, very big place, cheap, with free breakfast included. Im traveling alone and i really wanted to go on some day excursions to see the mountains, the staff was great about arranging them for me. Great place to stay while you check out Huascaron National Park, which is the most beautiful mountains ive seen in my life. a few blocks from Cruz del Sur bus station. Defenitelly recommend this place.

Great hostel, very clean. The staff are very friendly and let us check in at 6am without any additional cost! Booked all our tours through them too - Laguna 69 is a must! Breakfast is good also.

One small complaint is that the tours booked through the hostel (I did the Pastoruri glacier and Laguna 69) don't have an English option, not even a summary version which is a shame as the locations are interesting. Great hostel though, nice.common areas so easy to meet other people and some really nice touches like being able to borrow hiking boots and providing breakfast on arrival day because they know you've come off a night bus at 7am. Would definitely stay again.

The Staff at Alpes are SO helpful and friendly. They booked a tour and bus for us easily and answered all our questions. The hostel was closed in and had lockers available. Good free breakfast of bread and jam, banana, juice, and a hot drink. The room was standard - clean but very shabby. Showers were amazing!

This place is fine overall. Lacks atmosphere though. There is a bar area but it wasn't utilised. The shared kitchen is tiny. There is a roof terrace which we spent a lot of time on. This place has the potential to be awesome. We had a private room with bathroom which was cleaned regularly and good value for money. We booked two tours through them that were great and cheap.

Up a side street, not too far from the Plaza de Armas, this place was beautiful and had some really solid amenities. That said, it also seemed like someone there was always trying to sell us something, which got a little tiresome. It would have no doubt been a really fun hostel during the high season though, and the rooms were clean, well cared for and super comfy. I'd definitely go back.

This is my 2nd time at Alpes Huaraz. They have possibly the best showers I have been in in Sth America, hot water 24x7 with excellent water pressure. The bar/common area was busy, I meet a lot of cool people. The views from the roof top were as stunning as I remembered. Beds super comfy and clean. Close to the main plaza/shopping area. The wrist band that you receive on check-in still has some amazing deals on food and drinks. Breakfast is included. Staff are really friendly and speak English.

One of the best hostals I've stayed at in Peru : clean, comfortable, only 4 bed-dorms with a nice ensuite bathroom. The english speaking staff is very nice and helpful, they have good information about what there is to do in the area and they organise all the hikes and tours for you. It's walking distance to the center and includes a nice breakfast in the morning. We arrived at around 8am and the receptionist spent some time to explain us about the area and what activities we can do in town .
