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.
Despite having a reservation and also emailing the hostel directly to reconfirm the booking they had no room for us when we arrived. The woman just shrugged her shoulders and said they were full due to a miners convention. Eventually after she could see we were quite cross, she disappeared to check with another place and then walked us a block up the road to another hostal which was not great but at least we has a bed for the night. Cannot recommend this place after that experience.
Great price but a lot of extras that cost a lot, for exmple bad laundry for a lot of money, one shower for 5 soles (we stayed there for 3 days and the fourth day we just wanted to shower and leave bu we had to pay 5 soles per person) which was way to expensive for cold water. Apart from tha we enjoyed our stay and the very nice roofterras and clean rooms
The staff was very helpful and friendly. Hostel located only a few blocks away from main square. The hostel provided a generous kitchen to make meals and tea. Overall, I could not have been happier with my stay at La Posada del Virrey, and I would recommend this hostel to any traveler on a budget.
