If you are looking for a nice hostel in a brilliant location in the Old Town, but don't mind that there are no communal areas, this is ideal for you! The owners are very friendly and helpful and speak very good English which helped us! We had a private room with en suite - perfect for travelling couples.

Stayed 3 nights on the second floor. Twin room with private bathroom. Very quiet, comfortable beds. No noise from other guests. Plenty of hot water, good WiFi. Internal courtyard covered above but open at the sides so no trapped smells etc. Good cheap breakfast at the hostals cafe next door. Secondhand bookshop beside offering 2 to 1 on returns. 5 mins walk from the main square. Owner friendly and spoke good english. .

The lady that works there is very nice. They cleaned my room next day and they don't usually do that at other hostels. There was always hot water and the bed was quite comfortable. There was a nice desk and a cute closet for clothes. Wi-fi worked great. Really recommend this place.

thanks for your comment we look forward to serve you again


Located conveniently at Calle Larga and only about 5 blocks from the center. Very clean and friendly staff. Hot water was actually hot!


host were a little money-minded. charge for shower on 2nd day, and tour was only alright as they couldnt get a guide for us to cajas national park despite us paying quite an amount.


the hostel is situated in a good location and the staff "hostel owners" are very friendly and helpful to all guests. however, there is no common area so you can't meet other travellers, the kitchen is super tiny and you would struggle to cook anything. The lights are always off, so it seems dark and unwelcoming. Try get a room off the ground floor as these rooms are noisy and feels like you in a closet or store room.


Excellent location, excellent wifi, and the staff were really friendly and helpful. There wasn't breakfast offered but a lovely cafe next door which did great breakfasts so this wasn't a problem. However, this is more of a guesthouse than a hostel, so if your looking to meet lots of people then this probably isn't the right place. If you want somewhere with a great location and good facilities then it's perfect!
