Overall a decent spot to base yourself while exploring the area. My only issue were some problems we had with the Santa Cruz trek that we booked through the hostel. There was a bunch of info given to us by the staff that turned out to be wrong. The guide they use is obviously one of the cheapest...and you get what you pay for. The sleeping bags were frigidly cold, the food wasn't great, and they didn't have some of the equipment we requested.

Showers are not always hot. Kitchen is quite small for the size of the hostel. Staff was friendly at first and then started to be rude. Main complaint: I used their laundry service, they lost something that belonged to me and were not helpful at all when I asked them about it. They did not even apologize. You can find better options in Huaraz.

Super nice hostel with a great staff. The morning we arrived they let us check in at 7'o clock and gave us breakfast - great service. Perfect spot to start your trekking in the area!

Great location. Breakfast was better than most free breakfasts - includes fruit as well as bread/jam/coffee/tea/juice etc. lots of tours and treks available through the hostel, although they are a bit more expensive than if booked elsewhere. Staff are mostly friendly but they are very aggressive about trying to sell you tours. It is a bit off-putting but other than that it is a great place to be.

Love this hostel! Great rooms, staff is super helpful and can book treks and what not for you. Showers are great, awesome common areas. Only things were that the hostels were far from the rooms and the kitchen for the guests was really small whereas the one for the staff was really big.

Staff is very friendly and helpful. They let me have a bed already when I arrived very early in the morning after a long bus ride. Bunk beds are a bit wobbly... could get some extra screws :-). Roof terrace is nice to chill out after a hike, and view is amazing from there. Breakfast is average, but for just a few soles you can pimp it. Definitely can recommend this hostel!!

This is hostel is ok but nothing special. Private bathrooms in each room which is nice, no lockers though. 11:30pm curfew is understandable considering many of the treks leave early in the morning, but also inconvenient if you want to have some beers with fiends. No music playing in the "common area" which is actually just the area everyone passes through from reception to the rooms. The hostel worked ok for what we wer doing, but I've stayed in much better.

Owner Comment (Hide)
generally we don't answer comet's , but our stuff think's this is totally " unfair" coment and punctuation . 1. we do have lots locker's, "70 of them in the reception" with a camara on them . 2. This is no a party hostel ,while we have a bar but we don't play miusic to loud to respect for our guest's they want sleep early . There is lots bar's and club's on town that this costumer could have party night

They were very nice when we arrived at 5am and they had beds for us. Breakfast was good, even came with hot chocolate. Were helpful at the front desk. Wi-Fi was good.When exiting the Cruz Del Sur door go left one block and left again 4.5 blocks don't need a taxi.

Nice hostel and good location. The best thing about this place was the super friendly and helpful staff. They helped with so much information about different treks and booking them was so easy. They even helped me plan my trip from Huaraz onwards. Thanks to Daniel who was fantastic and helpful. I would definitely recommend this place.

The best hostel in Huaraz! Great atmosphere free breakfast and plenty of things to do that you can book within the hostel for an affordable price. Ask for Daniel and his friend Andre and they show you a great time for sure! Beautiful town and great people!!

A charming place that has everything you could expect from a good hostel. The view from the roof alone is worth it!

Really great staff - so helpful and a good laugh. Comfy beds. Lockers for your valuables. Hot showers. Good coffee in the mornings with breakfast. Kitchen needs some improvements but this hostel is a nice place to relax and meet people in between adventures!
