A great place to stay, it's small, cozy, and the staff is very friendly. Location is superb too. Couldn't be happier.


I love this place...full of love, beauty and warmth.


Awesome first hostel experience in South America! Pato, Alverto and Daniela were all excellent hosts who made my time here a memorable one. I chose the 8 bed dorm; the bed was very comfortable and the linen totally clean. All facilities were maintained to an exceptional standard by a 3rd party cleaner. Complimentary breakfast was great and consisted of: bread/toast, fruit plate, scrambled eggs and coffee. Lockers provided a great sense of security! Excellent on all fronts :)

We booked the 6-bed dorm. Clean and spacious with lockers and a heater. Beds were super comfortable. Hot water in the showers was unpredictable - best to shower at night when there are less people showering. Breakfast was one of the best we've had - spicy scrambled eggs, fruit, bread, etc. Staff were friendly and v. helpful. 10 mins walk from airport shuttle/metro.20 mins walk to Plaza Armes. Few eateries and big supermarket nearby.Thanks to Daniella,Pato & Javier for a great stay.


Totally fantastic breakfast and generally excellent hostel on general.


A pleasure as always - friendliest, most helpful staff in the world! Thx.Hugs! Un placer como siempre - la gente más amable y atenta del mundo! Grcs. Abrazos!

Nice hostel, friendly staff, comfy beds!! small but awesome!


Stayed for 3 nights in 8 bed dorm. Place has a very home feel nice staff and great breakfast! However the kitchen is really dingy and the pots and pans are really old. Just cleaning is definetly not an option anymore as this needs to be renovated. Other than that I can recommend staying here.

Oops Thanks for letting us know. We are renovating the hostel step by step. We Just finnished renovating Lounge and dinning área. Kitchen is next. We are working on it. :)


Very good hostel! Totally recomended


One of the best hostels I've stayed at in South America. The hostel itself is small and family run, which makes it much easier to meet people staying there. The beds were the best I've stayed in and the breakfast was brilliant, eggs and smoothies served to you!


היינו כאן 4 ימים בחדר של 4, ואחרי שבוע חזרנו לעוד לילה באותו חדר . יש שתי מיטות בודדות ואחת קומותיים ,הבודדות רכות נורא ,אפילו מדי . יש מי שיאהב את זה .החדר פנה לרחוב והיה די רועש ,אבל לא משהו בלתי נסבל לטעמי .מקלחת אחת היתה בשיפוצים או תיקונים ,והיה עומס על המקלחת-שירותים היחידים בקומה ,למרות שיש עוד שרותים ומקלחת למטה פשוט הם בתוך חדר ולא נעים להיכנס כל כך .מבטח נורא קטן אבל מצוייד היטב .ארוחת בוקר מהטובות שאכלתי בטיול או בכלל . צוות אדיר ואווירה מעולה ומגניבה .
