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!

Nice hostel with friendly owner. At the time of our visit it was quiet both in hostel and the (beautiful) city. Located centrally. One remarkable thing about the hostel is that taps fool you all the time as they close the contrary to what humanity is used to.


The hosts are really warm and welcoming and they also give good information about how to reach certain places. The location is excellent, just on the edge of the historical center. Rooms were cleaned every day which is not common in hostels, and the nights were quiet with an excellent sleeping quality.


Nice hostel in a good location. More of a guesthouse than a hostel. No facilities really except a really small kitchen. Really nice staff and comfy room.
