Lovely hostel with a beautiful rooftop terrace to watch some of the best sunsets, only four blocks away from the main plaza. Great if you are on a really low budget. Rooms are nothing fancy, yet had a lot of character with cute paintings on the walls, even had our own private terrace. A shared kitchen is available for use and showers always had hot water. Maria, the woman in charge, was super sweet and helpful. Overall I would highly recommend!

The staff is strange, you have to wait very long for them and the price wasn't right! we've paid 16 PEN, but in the internet stands 4 PEN. And the washing-service is very bad- because our clouths were were'n't dry!
We spent 2 nights in 2 different rooms . It´s really cheap accommodation close to the city centre, it´s a budget hostel for those who don´t mind much the lack of cleanliness and comfort. The rooms were not very clean, neither the bathroom. Sometimes there was a hot water, sometimes only cold, the water flow in the shower was terribly low. There was only one electric plug in the room, in the bathroom there was any. We were also bitten by a flea which was in the room.
When we arrived at 1am despote a reservation it was full but they already organised a room in the hostel next door. Great terrace, hot water, wifi and the Colca Canyon Tour we booked was very good.
