I loved this place!! It is everything you need in a hostel, great rooms, great social areas, clean, the pool area is great, friendly staff! The only downside is that wifi doesn't seem to work in all parts of the hostel but you can always get some. Wish I could stayed longer!
Perfect. Everything you would want and expect from a hostel! Cheap, clean, good location, good staff, great bar and awesome guests!! Only 97% as no wifi in the room... But hardly a problem as it's quick at the bar! Big ups xx
Wifi was sporadic on the first day of our stay - only worked on the bar. The second day no wifi at all.

Enjoyed my time there. Shame about the weather and the sand storm but overall agreat experience!
Nice staff. A bit disorganized but very helpful and amicable. Some of the other guest were a bit disruptive and performing inappropriate acts in a shared dorm space but the rooms were otherwise clean and comfortable. The bar area was very welcoming and nice.
The staff are really friendly and helpful. Breakfast is average and better at Kokopelli in Cusco. There is also no laundry service available here. Security in the hostel is good, however, when the beach doors were open a woman walked into our dorm from the beach and asked how much the beds were. Although people wear wrist bands, these are never checked when people are coming and going. Also, unfortunately there hot water brke whilst I stayed so there was no hot water for at least 3 nights.
Had a great one night stay in Kokopelli. Only complaint I have is how they rented the bikes to me. They said I could bike to Reserva Nacional with hardly any guidance. As a strong biker, I thought this meant it would be easy. Not the case. It was confusing to get there, and once I did I found all the beaches to be far away from one another. Moreover, I had to bike along a highway.
best hostel structure we've seen. beds are really confortable and have their own outlet and night light. the art identity is great and gives the hostel a cool atmosphere
Great hostel, right on the beach. Staff are really friendly and down to earth and the rooms are spotless. Massive DVD library for when the weather's not great. Paracas is a fantastic place to chill when between the big cities and treks.
If you want to relax by the beach, that's the place to stay. We loved kokopelli so much!! It is right by the beach and after traveling for so long, it is so good to relax
The staff was great, the volunteers in the bar not as great

Kokopelli brought Paracas to life. Fun place to be and well worth the price. Great amenities by the bar.
More beach chairs is a must. More options for breakfast would be great. Being able to toast bread would help. Less rules at the bar...be more chill. Ensure you have stock on happy hour drinks. Otherwise we really enjoyed our time in Paracas!
The staff were very helpful. The hostel is clean and pleasant and right on the beach. We did have to air out our room by leaving the door open for some time after arriving because a cleaning ammonia smell filled the air at first. They arranged our Balestas boat ride with no hassles which was great. Kind of a party place in the evening with music at volume and a game on the TV in the bar but it quieted about 11:00 so not too bad. Recommended.
Really nice laid back place. Love the hammocks and it backs straight on to the beach. Really clean and safe.

Didn't stay long as we were on the Peru hop bus but kokopelli was great. The dorm rooms look crowded but the set up with lockers next to your bed and your own power point is the best thing ever! The beds are also really comfortable. The hot water was a big hit and miss but the rest of the facilities were awesome, especially the bar area. There was pool, fooseball, ping pong and the little Peruvian frog and coin game.
Great location next to the beach, lively bar, great number of facilities. Bar volunteers were very friendly, hostel staff itself less so. Good place to relax.
This is probably the number one place to stay in Paracas. Everyone stays here, so it booked up the night we were there. It opens to the beach in the back. It is near everything and it has many amenities. It has hammocks, bar challenges, a breakfast, etc. It's a great place to stay.
party hostel so go here if you're into that. private rooms are slightly away from the bar so it's not too bad but it is noisy at night. swimming pool looks nice and there are pool tables and hammocks etc and it backs onto the beach. staff aren't great, pretty unfriendly and not helpful. overall it's average, we couldn't find many options in paracas so it was the best of the options available to us. beware the tours you book through them you can book cheaper yourself a 2 minute walk down the road
Pretty good hostal. Large lockers, with plug ins for every bed. Wi-Fi could be stronger. Nice pool large common area and a tv room.
