Badly in need of modernisation, and a decent clean. It has a great set up (i.e. Garden, movie room etc), but the lack of cleanliness made it uncomfortable. There is hair blocking the plug so it doesnt drain and you shower in other peoples filth. The taps were encrusted in scum. The floor and furniture was dusty. It just needs some tlc that's all. Wifi was poor and the hot water was irregular. Staff were really really great and the trip we booked through them was great too.

Great place to stay. Near to Plaza de Armas, clean, nice and helpful staff, they have tours, renting bikes, it makes you easy the stay. If they will add something more to the gem and bread breakfast, that will be awsome.

This hostel was a bit on the outskirts of the plaza/central area. There are better hostels just a block from the hostel. Breakfast is just jam and bread, nothing too special. From my experience was not a social hostel, everyone seemed to stay in their dorm. We came here without any plans, so we booked the 2 day tour to colca canyon, which was awesome! You have to wake up really early, so a good nights rest is a must - I wore ear plugs but my friend said it was pretty loud all night.

I had a great time and felt at home at this hostel. It has a great common area to chill out and a great view from the volcanos. The staff is just like a family for travelers and it is very clean and organized. I had a great time and felt really happy there!

Staff are really nice. I booked my Colca Canyon trekking through the front desk and it was a great experience. Laundry service is fast and the price is fair.

Your hostel rocks!!! The only thing that can be improved is the wifi network (booking tickets etc. needs a stable connection) other than that this is one of the best hostels I have ever been in both in Europe and abroad!

Great hostel! The prices are reasonable, especially when you consider all the great things that come along with it. It's really secure- the hostel is gated, and all rooms have large lockers. The staff are wonderful, and it is always so so clean. Lots of common space to hang out and meet other travelers. A quick walk from downtown, in a really quiet neighborhood.

Clean and well located hostel. Airport pick-up worked out great. Hot water supply could be better.
