Staff extremely unhelpful and unfriendly. Wanted to charge another night just we check out 10 minutes to late which was actually not our fault...

It is impossible to put into words how bad this hostel is. It is run by people who are completely incompetent. Reservations are not honoured, beds and rooms are allocated to other people whilst people are still in them, the staff lie repeatedly when claiming they are resolving the multitude of issues... the list goes on. During three horrendous days staying here we didn't meet one person who had not been similarly affected. Do yourself a favour and don't stay here!

Basically it took them a whole day to give me a bed (that wasn't already occupied), after moving me 3 times because either they realized someone was already there or they gave my bed away to someone else, even though I had done my check in. They didn't apologize or make any effort to make the situation a bit less of a mess. They were rude to me, barely changed the bed sheets in the bed, the floor in the room hadn't been cleaned in quite a while... and I wasn't the only one with problems.

Fantastic place to stay in Huaraz! Clean, affordable accommodation with comfy beds, very helpful and friendly staff, decent little bar with cheap drinks and a roof terrace with a beautiful view of the surrounding area. We even booked our tour to Laguna 69 through the hostel, as it was cheaper than most of the other tour operators... The best the other companies could do was match the price! Only downer was the state of the kitchen, but everything else was spot on!!

We were in a private double room and everything was perfect! Not far from restaurants and shops, friendly staff, beautiful views from the terrace and the tours through them are good value for money. Only downer was the state of the kitchen, but everything else was spot on!

Staff were friendly and helped us book our trek and give us ideas of to do even if it wasn't through the hostel directly. Sorted us a room when we turned late and didn't ask for more money. The only negatives were the noise at 5:30am for people going on treks (hard to avoid) and the slow service at breakfast.

Only hostal I really didn't like on my trip. The owner seems genuinly not happy to have any guests in his 'house'. He told me bluntly that I didn't have a reservation, and that I should show my hostelworld reservation on paper. He wanted to kick me out, but luckaly one of his sons, who was laughing about the matter, arranged a bed. The sons, who organise the treks, are party animals unable of arranging the most basic things and are just out to sleep with every girl that comes in. Don't go here.

Great hostel with a central courtyard and indoor soft seating area with bar. Had some epic nights in the bar hanging with the staff. Arrived to some confusion; no record of my online booking and fully booked due to the holiday weekend. Staff did accommodate me however, others where in the same situation. The older couple are pretty unfriendly, but the brothers who run the place are helpful and knowledgeable about hikes/climbing in the area.

Good hostel, clean and basic rooms.Good breakfast, lockers and nice accomodation room. Kitchen was ok, but sometimes dirty. We booked the laguna 69 Tour with them and it was amazing. But a lot of strange and dirty People stay there and are the hole time drunken and loud.

My view is clouded by being robbed of my passport, cards and my money as I slept in the aptly-named room 101 dormitory by another person who checked out early. Neither the hostel management showed any interest in trying to catch the culprit. Management just said it was my fault for not locking my stuff in the lockers in reception. The hostel itself was ok and the bar staff friendly.
