the location is exellent, staff very helpfull, good value for money


A familiar hostel with a real kitchen, which is a good afford in this overpriced village. But there might be hostals with a better atmosphere. The rooms with sheared bathrooms might get really hot as they are just wood huts without any ventilation.


A basic hostel which needs a little extra attention on the cleanliness front (I showered with a used tampon). The rooms are basically wooden sheds which offers no barrier to any noise from outside or the other rooms which meant poor sleeping conditions. Also they do not sell any water which was really annoying when nowhere else was open. The staff here are nice but we had some friends at other hostels which were far nicer and of a similar price bracket.


The staff was amazing. They helped us book tours and were not pushy about it. They also have us detailed directions on the cheapest way to go to Lima from Paracas.


The owner in the workplace ,Alberto is very well spoken in English, he's extremely knowlegible about Peru. He also is very helpful to any and all who ask for help. I would highly recommend this hostel to everyone...


Nice, rustic beach bungalo feel. The owner was very friendly and gave us a good overview of what was in the town and where to eat. The room we stayed in was very basic, but it's not like we spent much time in there anyways. Good hostel for a night in Paracas.


Very pleasant stay, nothing to argue about! Very friendly staff, took care of everything and arranged all the tours for a cheap price. I would recommend this hostel to everybody visiting Paracas!


Great place to stay. Highly recomended. Alberto is awesome and his information 100% useful. Gracias.


Staff was really nice! Facilities although are not that good...


The man that runs this place couldn't be more helpful and the tours were well priced and organised. The main problem we had was the thin walls in the wooden cabins meaning that the incredibly loud events at the museum next door and the incredibly loud Australian students nextdoor who were up talking nonsense at 6am meant that I didn't sleep very well although I'm usually a heavy sleeper. Unfortunately the shower was also freezing the one time I used it. A shame as the man was so friendly.


Alberto is a really nice owner, he helped me a lot, thank you so much !!!
