We stayed in the 14 bed dorm which actually was pretty nice. Not as noisy as expected. This hostel is definitely very social. Location was so convenient to everything and right on the beach. Breakfast really average.


Very friendly and relaxed hostel with brilliant facilities especially when you consider the price! One draw back was the lack of any lock on our dorm room which was right next to the communal areas so we did get a couple of random people using the toilet in the night.


Beachfront bar, really nice hammocks. Good location for a quick stay in Paracas.


Great spot with pool, bar with tons of games and activities, kayaks for use, direct access to the beach and bikes for hire. Friendly staff who are typically work stays. Only complaint about rooms around the pool is the noise level at night when people sit around to drink/chat.


Good atmosphere, good staff and tours, however lacked a kitchen as food in paracas was expensive.


When I arrived I had booked. Basic 4 bed dorm but it was very small with a very low ceiling Which I found too small for me but the staff very quickly showed me a couple of other rooms and I upgraded To 4 bed deluxe room which was really good with a high quality feel and a beautiful bathroom, the location is great And the staff really helpful and nice. You must do the dune buggy and boarding, brilliant, found this to be a very Good quality hostel with good activities and facilities available.


Fun environment! Yummy slushy drinks! Love that the ocean is right behind it!

it was a very nice modern hostel with great location straight on the beach,clean and secure, kayaks, pool and pool table, hammocks for free to use , helpful staff, the only downside which is actually rather disturbing if you would like to sleep, the music from the bar is very loud until about 2am


Pros: The swimming pool was a great addition on a sunny day. The lockers were a good size to fit all your things. The hostel was right on the beach front and had a pool table and ping pong table which only requireda deposit. Cons: the 14 bed dorm is right next to the bar, so it's noisy at night. The price for the bike rental is a lot more expensive than other places in town. The 30 soles for the islas baellestas tour doesn' include the 15 soles tax and this was only explained at the last minute


We stayed only one night at this awesome hostel but the atmosphere is great and staff are awesome no the happy hour can get you into a wicked night with some good people!!


A great hostel with a great vibe and music. Three happy hours! Generally a bit more of a party hostel but they do it well! I loved it here. It's laid back and friendly and life revolves around the big bar area and hammocks or the pool. It's also right on the beach. The only minor issue was that food isn't served all day.


I really liked the very friendly and helpful staff. It's a nice atmosphere but in the end I pay a hostel to have a place to sleep. Having the music that loud till 1am or later which is next to the dorms is unacceptable, there is no way you can sleep before 1am. I'll give Kokopelli Cusco another chance and hope they turn off the music at a decent time!


The hostel is very nice, next to the beach and to the center. You can walk there by station to the hostel. But the atmosphere was not so nice, there was loud until late even if nobody was partying, so you couldn't meet people but you couldn't sleep either. Breakfast was basic and for every additional thing you had to pay.


There's a swimming pool in the hostel, what more can you ask for! And jammy hammocks. Samantha's lovely and cute.


Amazing place! Great atmosfere. Interesting design of all furniture. Comfortable and have you need. Bar is very good too. And Paracas an awsome place.


The hotel was great, and the price is unbeatable. The included breakfast is simple (just bread and jam, but unlimited coffee), but they have delicious other options if you want to pay a little more (very reasonable prices). The pool, common area, and bar are all great. I will most definitely be coming back and have told all my friends about it. One of the best hostel deals I have seen anywhere, ever. But don't plan on sleeping at least til 11, maybe later if you are near the bar.


Kokopelli had a lovely location next to the ocean, with an option to use paddle boards and canoes. It also had a small swimming pool, bar and restaurant - the restaurant cooked really good food. There was always lots of people around with a good atmosphere. The breakfast was the basic rolls and jam and hot drinks but often suffered from not being replenished enough - this did depend on which staff members were on.


Enjoyed my stay. The hostel has a really nice outdoor common area with a pool, hammocks, pool table, and kayaks. Food was great but drinks are a bit expensive. Great atmosphere but make sure you bring earplugs if you need to have an early night as the music is pretty loud. WiFi works great, hostel is clean, and staff are friendly. The only thing I didn't like was that my locker was broken so I couldn't use it. They should make sure all the lockers work. It's a major security issue.


Beautiful location and helpful staff. Couldn't ask for more.


Overall a pretty good hostel. Nice vibes and located right on the beach. Very helpful staff when it comes to booking tours and stuff. Hard to get any sleep, though. Music played literally until past 3 am, so don't stay here if you actually want to sleep. Also, breakfast was the absolute bare minimum of bread and jam, and the bread wasn't even good.
