Maruja is really helpful, when one of us was sick she came in to make us extra tea. The atmosphere is nice, clean rooms, warm shower, good wifi. - Location is a bit far out of Huaraz, but a taxi only costs 4 soles. Breakfast is a bit simple, 2 slices of toast with jam, coffee/tea and juice. Staff also advised us on hikes to do around the area and tried to sell them to us with overprised taxi's.


At Night the rooms were a bit cold, but a warm sweater goes a long way. Gilf and his wife were very nice and helped us out with the tours we wanted to take. Highly recommendable! :D

A lovely hostel, very friendly staff


Gile and his wife are great hosts. They serve up a great breakfast each morning, Gilf is always around to give advice to trips and hikes. Really great family sun hostel. It is a little out of town, but easy to catch a 5min taxi into the centre for cheap.


This hostel was a nice soft landing. What a nice surprise to be met at the bus station so we didn't have to worry about finding an honest taxi at night. Gilf was an outstanding host. He was very helpful with all the information we needed for hikes etc. Even though it was not right in town I would reccomend this hostal as the service was outstanding and besides Huaraz as a town was uninspiring it is its location in the mountains for the outdoor activities that most people are there for.


We had a spacious room with a large bathroom. Everything worked and the property is well maintained. Wifi worked well in the room and there was hot water as required. Maruja and Gilf are lovely people and concerned to help you get the most from your visit.


Excellent stay, hostel and family are amazing and have a massive knowledge of hiking/activities in the area. Only booked for 3 nights but stayed for over a week. Great roof top view of the Codillera Blanca, location is a nice quiet neighbourhood and easy 4 soles taxi/80c colectivo to town. Would strongly recommend.
