I didn't spend much time here, but it was clean, good location, wifi worked. Not the hostel's fault, but there are roosters nearby that start making noise very early. Bring earplugs if that bothers you.


It's a beautiful hostel with amazing staff. Super kind, friendly and extra helpful! It had everything I needed and a relaxing hammock.


Very helpful, informative staff. Good location. I enjoyed my stay


I loved Paracas and the hostel. It has enough commun space to chill out. Lidia is very kind.


Nice hostel but was in renovation. Kitchen was small and a bit dirty. Nice staff.


Nice hostel but doesn't have lockers to put your backpack.quality vs price is really good


El personal es muy amable, las habitaciones son limpias y cuenta con una muy buena ubicación. Sería bueno hcerle unas mejoras al baño, de resto es espectacular!!!


A standard and friendly hostel. Do not stay in Paracas more than a day - the town is a dive with shifty nightclub music audible a cross the town all night long.

Great hostel with really nice owners and a good location. It´s under construction at the moment so it will be nicer when there aren´t piles of rocks and construction workers all the over the place. It was also very noisy while we were there, not related to the hostel but really loud party music until dawn and then crowing roosters for hours when the sun came up. Bring ear plugs. They Islas Ballestas tour they organize has a good English speaking guide and the price is favorable.


Hostel was in a decent location, but facilities were slightly annoying. Open air and poor construction led to cold and noisy nights. Lack of any sort of breakfast was also disappointing. For the value it was okay, and the staff were quite friendly (though it's necessary to know at least some Spanish to communicate).

Well located and comfortable for the money. Tea and coffee in the morning was a nice touch, and they did a great ballestas islands tour!


When we arrived we were given no information on the hostel/ its facilities. The hostel is still under renovations and our room was 2 doors down from the main building which had no WiFi only 1 hot shower (the other bathrooms were still under construction). The room we stayed in had no flooring, still concrete only, and the bathrooms were not cleaned over the course of our stay. When we asked about the tours the young female staff member was not helpful and it was a struggle to gain information


The owners were very nice, it was in a good location, and we were able to get a private double room (no bathroom) for less than $15, which was great. Negatives were: that the shared bathroom was on another floor and was shared with the 12 person dorm, the social atmosphere wasn't great, and there was no tv room (that I knew of).


I didnlike the staff at this hostel but it was under a lot of construction and there were no lockers. It was also a holiday weekend and they overbooked our room. They took care of it best they could by giving two peoplw their sons quarters because their son was gone. Again they were very nice but i think the construction caused some problems.

Nice hot shower and comfortable beds. The kitchen is basic and wifi works ok. They are building at the moment in the middle of the hostel. I would stay here again.


The staff were really friendly and helpful. The hostel is undergoing some construction work at the moment so we didnt stay in the main hostel so it wasnt as described and we couldnt get wifi at all in our room. But it was still a good hostel. We only stayed 1 night in the end though as there is not much to do in Paracas.


Everything was really perfect, near all the restaurants and supermarkets. Just a few blocks away from the bus stop and the room and bathrooms are brand new.

This place was a building site when we stayed there although assume this means they are improving it- really reasonable price for private room (s/45), central location (although paracas is tiny so everywhere is central), clean enough, staff are friendly & helpful, best option in our opinion as cheap but can use pool in hotel next door & walk 2 mins to kokopelli, which is a livlier hostel, for atmosphere'
