Nice Hostal with nice outside area to hang out! Comfortable beds and good showers. Really basic breakfast and a small kitchen without basics like salt or oil. Wifi was bad during the day. Helpful staff. You can book tours and busses at the reception but you don't get a lot of information about it. I would stay there again, because the atmosphere was chilled!

Best hostel of our trip. It's a big hostel with a small hostel feel. Saucy staff, great beds, hot water and an awesomely challenging pool table. It's in a gated community so it feels super safe, and the old mansion it's in is awesome. I love you guys!

This hostel is perfect if you're looking to meet people but you don't want the traditional party hostel. The beds are comfortable and the hostel is clean. The kitchen it well stocked and there was always hot water (although I had to adjust the taps to get the right temperature quite a lot!!) Its a 10 minute walk to the main square. I would thoroughly recommend this hostel.

Great location - not far from the main square. Staff was so friendly and helpful. They offer tours of colca canyon and the prices are competitive with other agencies. Lots of amenities such as a TV, pool table, lots of rooms to hang out in. Felt very secure - each room had a lock and key and there was also a main gate. Pretty spacious.

Very dark atmosphere. Only hot water for showers 50% of the time even after mentioning to the staff. Awful smell in the kitchen. Floor was always sticky. Had to slam door to get it to close. Very annoying to everyone during the night. Loud neighbours. Breakfast was poor. Ran out of food before 8:30am Staff was friendly and helpful. Wifi worked well.

Good hostel offering kitchen, laundry service and local tours. Secure luggage storage. Short walk to main plaza.

The hostel is quite big, with a lot of people, so there is always someone new to meet. The bathrooms do tend to get busy on the rushhours. The beds are comfy with a good blanket. I did stay only one night, but would also stay again.

The safest hostel I have ever been in, it has it's own private gated road! Staff are amazing. Facilities are great, albeit the kitchens/eating areas were a little crowded at breakfast and dinner. Also the coffee was probably the worst I've ever had. Bathrooms were cleaned every hour and kitchen was cleaned every 5 seconds, super clean! Thanks for a great stay

This is the best hostel I've stayed in in SA!! Really. Stay here. Staff is super friendly and helpful. Very easy to book Colca canyon/el misti/etc tours through the front desk, and you can store bags easily in a locked room. Great common areas and decent bread/jam/banana inc breakfast. Nice backyard. Two movie rooms. Social but not a party. Staff keeps the place very very clean. Stay. Here.
