One of the rooms had no ventilation and reeked of sewage. The staff were mostly (2 people out of three) attentive and pleasant. Our reservation was not fulfilled as requested (four rooms requested, only three rooms available), yet staff expected payment for all four rooms. Also, their choice of exchange rate was completely arbitrary and quite different from that used elsewhere (to their favor). Further, staff refused to disclose source for exchange rate. Cannot not recommend this hostal.

We are a family of three adults and we enjoyed our stay here. We felt the room was bright and well maintained. The owner was very helpful and really cared about his establishment and his clients. We cold walk into town in 10/15 minutes. They were able to organise trips out to Lake Titicaca and Sillistrano towers.

Located between the town centre and the port, with a 15 minute walk to the bus station, El Manzano was fine for the one night I stayed there. Expected temperatures for each time you want to use the shower are posted, as the hostel uses a mix of solar and electric power to heat the water. Nobody seemed to speak English, which was no big deal, though they did want payment in Nuevo Sol rather than the US dollars that it requests on your Hostelworld receipt. Not fancy, cheap and clean.
