The owner was VERY helpful - he booked all our tours for us and recommended bars and restaurants that we tried and loved. A great place to base your Chachapoyas adventure.

Nice hostel, Jose who runs it is a good guy and speaks good English. Very helpful booking tours for us through their partner tour company and very cheap too. Good value. Drinking water available. Bed was comfy. Showers not great, take a while to get even warm. Internet is seriously bad. I'd recommend it, it's not perfect but its a decent place. Oh and it's really central too.


Great staff! Very helpful! They also offer nice tours for a very reasonable price, value for money :)


Such a price-worthy and nice accommodations. The owners are very friendly and will help you with anything within their power. Nice and big rooms that you share with only a few people and a sweet kitchen with free access to coca-leafs. 10/10!

One of the best hostels I have ever been! Jose and his wife make you feel like if you were part of their family. The environment itself is really nice. Rooms and bathrooms were clean and spacious. Also, you have an avaliable kitchen where you can prepare your food while interacting with the other hostel guests. As a plus, they offer many tours with really good prices. Highly recommended!

This hostel was so great! We took a night bus to Chachapoyas so we ended up arriving at 6:30am but they already had our room ready for us. They make seeing the sights in the area so easy! We were expecting to have a hard time going out to see the Gotca waterfall and Kuelap but they made it so we didn't even have to think about it! The rooms were comfortable and there are plenty of bathrooms on all floors. We took another night bus from Chachapoyas and they let us just chill in the hostel all day


What a great hostel! The staff and the owner, José, couldn't be nicer. They sorted good tours and bus tickets for us and were always ready to help with anything. Our double room was big enough and comfortable. Great service and excellent value for money!


Dona & Jose were excellent hosts -- they definitely put care & service before dollars. We would have moved in & stayed if time allowed. All staff were extremely friendly & I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hostel to anyone looking for a safe & friendly stay.


the owner was so helpful and every time we saw him he was smiling and that really made our stay so welcoming. everything was good with our room & bathroom & kitchen facilities and its also a great place to meet other travellers as you'll most likely be doing a tour with some of them! the only downside of this hostel is the slow internet connection but apparently the whole town is a bit slow so there's nothing to be down about that. the hostel can book you tours for a good price, too. stay here!
