Loved this place. The staff was incredible. They talked to everyone, made them feel very welcome, and invited them dancing. :) The rooms were nice, with large individual lockers. The only downside was that there were only 2 bathrooms in the hostel and you have to go outside to get there. This wasn't fun to do in the freezing cold. However, the hot shower was well worth it and, from talking to other people, is a real find in Tilcara. Breakfast was simple but delicious. Would definitely return!
It's hard to know what to say about this hostel. It has great potential, for example a nice sunny terrace to sit on. However the kitchen was not useable, there is not really a common area and no where to sit after 11pm, bathroom was not cleaned often, the sheets and towels were handwashed in cold water a tiny sink on the terrace and hung there to dry, and they didn't feel that clean when we used them! Description of the hostel online does not match the reality.

This hostel was great. It's well located on the way to hikes and the archeological site in the city. Best of all was the patio overlooking the city.
Albahaca Hostel was the perfect place to enjoy Tilcara. The staff is wonderful and helpful. They offer joint dinners with their sister hostel several nights a week for a good chance to meet fellow travelers. Don't miss the breakfast that includes homemade apple jam and fresh squeezed orange juice! You will quickly feel at home and part of the family here. Also - a great location, right between the town center and hiking trails to Garganta Del Diablo, Pucara and Cerro De La Cruz.
Nice hostel, the staff was really friendly and helpful. They were kind enough to wake up earlier to prepare me a breakfast because I had to take the bus early. My only complaint would be that there are only two bathrooms/showers for all the rooms, which is not really practical. And the hostel is situated a little out of the center.

We cannot confirm all the positive results. Our room was ok, so the overall value for money was indeed ok. But the shared bathroom was not cleaned once in the 4 days we stayed there. In front of our room there was a very disgusting smell all the time - not sure where it came from. The breakfast: we had definitely better ones in other hostels, but I won‘t complain too much, regarding the cheap price. The staff does not speak any English, so this is definitely a problem if you don't speak Spanish.
