Nice, clean and quiet hostel. Perfect to relax after having enjoyed the peruvian live and sights during the day.


Location beside the bar/nightclub makes sleeping nearly impossible during the weekend. Rooms are good and shower is adequate. The kitchen could do with some more pots and pans. The fridge needs to be cleared out more often as no way is it full with stuff from people cooking daily (we never saw anyone cook there). Internet badly needs to be upgraded as only good under the router.


I would definitely stay here again. For the price this hostel is excellent. I stayed in a single room and it was cheaper than dorm rooms at other hostels in the city. The bed was very comfy. The staff were friendly and helpful. There is a open air kitchen on the roof. The bathrooms were always clean. The WiFi worked fine in the room. The only downside is that their weren't many common areas so its difficult to meet people.


The staffs are really nice and helpful. The floor in my room was dusty, other than that great place. I would recommend this hostel.


Very friendly staff! Good price!

After weeks of dormitory stays without much privacy I was very happy to get my own room for the price of a dormitory bed. But it's not only about the bargain for a single room. The hostal is located close to the main plaza and next to a few nice restaurants, WIFI is strong, there is a cosy terrace and you can use the kitchen. The place is kept clean, hot water showers work and stuff is very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.


Good place to stay , safe and clean with nice and helpful stuff


Great hostel. If you're after a private double with ensuite try to request a room on the roof terrace. The room opposite the reception feels like a letdown in comparison.


The hostel is very noisy! And the shower cold most times! However people work over there are great, the rooms are clean, and the location is perfect!


Great location with friendly staff. Kindly let us leave our bags for a night free of charge. Only problem was the bar next door played music that could be heard through the walls but other than that overall an excellent place!


I had a single, so just for the price that was excellent, this was a very basic room on the roof. The shower is solar heated so you have to time it right.


This hostel is located in the heart of city centre, 3 minutes walk to Main Square. Staff very helpful. Environment conscious, providing recycle bins for plastic and paper. It also provide many facilities for low budget travelers, such as kitchen and fridge where you can cook yourself, rope for hanging your washed cloths to dry outside, etc. it has a terrace where travelers can get together for travel experience exchange. Above all, room price is very low compared to others hotels in the area.


We arrived from Puno at 5am in the morning and although check in is supposed to be at 12pm they let us check in early which was greatly appreciated! Private room was a good size, decent hot showers and wifi. Located 5mins from plaza de armas. No complaints
