Really nice hostel with a great terrace and breakfast, but not enough bathrooms for amount of people. Also the hot water went out for a day. Otherwise great location and good value.

As others have said, the rooftop balcony is legit and the location is conveniently right off plaza de armas. Delicious breakfast. The bathrooms were a little run down (cracked toilet seats, sinks sagging) but were clean. Hot showers too! Lockers fit large padlocks. They helped book a Colca Canyon trek but some of the info on the pamphlet was wrong; double check everything. There was construction and a dog that wouldn't shut up making it a bit difficult to sleep in.

Very good location literally 1min away from Plaza de armas with a lot of restaurants, cafes and bars very close. Nice rooftop and breakfast (pancakes or eggs) and very helpful staff. Good equipments in general, just missing a bit of plugs

We stayed in the private room on the patio and it was very quiet with a gorgeous view. And you could not ask for a better location. Breakfast was really delicous and made individually. Highly recommend!

Pros: great central location, breakfast is decent, nice rooftop to chill out (but inside common areas aren´t that inviting), helpful and friendly staff Cons: bathrooms are a bit dirty and building generally felt/looked very run down, would be nice if storage room for luggage could be locked, 6 bed dorm didn´t have a window to the outside so smelt really bad

Overall my stay at MB Backpackers was positive. The majority of the staff was extremely friendly and helpful (plus they make a good, basic breakfast). I was able to easily book my trek to Colca Canyon and store my non-essential belongings at the hostel while I was away. Only negative thing is if you stay in the 10-bed dormitory do NOT expect it to be quiet. It has windows opening up to the very busy street (no cars, but LOTS of people) and the door opens up to the hostel lounge. Choose wisely!
