Overall: Quiet hostel in Huaraz, about 5 mins walk from main square. Met some great other travelers while here. || Rooms: Rooms were very nice. Beds were warm, ensuite bathroom was clean. || Security: No lockers in rooms, but padlock lockers in reception area. || Internet: Generally reliable, covers common areas. || Other: Staff (particularly Daniel) was very friendly and helpful. Can book day hikes (and maybe treks?) through reception. Small bar/common area.


Great hostel that feels like home, with a kitchen and great TV area with heaps of DVDs. Staff are really helpful, especially when it comes to organising day tours and treks. Beds and pillows are a bit hard, but still comfy. It's a little bit of a walk from the main plaza (5mims), but not that far.


The staff here were so super friendly and helpful, though just a warning- only one of the sons speaks English! We arrived at 5am off a night bus and were let straight into a dorm to sleep, also given free breakfast that next morning, really nice. We booked Laguna 69 and glacier trips through the hostel. Staff hung our wet clothes afterwards and brought it in when the rain set in later in the day. Didn't realise but they also rent hiking gear which is really handy!


good little hostel with a very helpful young lady that works there. catch the boss on the wrong day and he's pretty scary but on others he can be helpful too. overall a decent hostel with some good info on local treks and activities


Staff were super friendly and the tours organised through the hostel were awesome.


Nice building, once you've got past the building site entrance. Do not buy tours here! They tried to overcharge me 10 soles for the Laguna 69 trip - why, when they were charging other residents 40 soles?? Apparently the guides they use don't bother to accompany the group on the hike either, so book elsewhere! It was low season, but they couldn't be bothered to open the bar for those of us who were there.


It's only few blocks from main square, very quiet during the night. Staffs cannot be more helpful and friendly, not just because they found my passport.


Alpes was so great! Friendly, accommodating staff, nice and relaxing atmosphere. I highly recommend Alpes when traveling to Huaraz.

It was simple but clean and the staff was very helpful. I stayed for three nights and would stay here again.

Our second time there. Staff are awesome! (Main reason we came back)


A nice hostel near to town. A good place to meet other travellers. The room was cold, a small heater would be good for the cold mornings and night.
