they really really need to add locks to the doors. the hostel itself was clean, the beds warm, the staff wonderful, and facilities and wifi were excellent, but the fact that you cannot lock the rooms and there are no personal lockers (the only ones there are maintained by the staff, only they have the keys, which is inconvenient). it would bring a great peace of mind if the rooms at least had locks or if they ever locked the front door.
Great! Nice staff, hot showers 24/7, kitchen, clean rooms!
Alberto, his family and his workers run a great hostel. Had a very beachy feel to it. Nice shared facilities and a shared kitchen. Alberto is extremely friendly and happy to help with anything. He showed us where to shop and where to eat. Would definitely recommend this hostel.
Alfredo and his boss are tops. Can't recommend this place highly enough. Paracas is a gem not to be missed.
Excellent option in paracas. Owners could not be more helpful. They can organise any tours, but aren't pushy at all. Only slight negative is that anyone could walk in and there are no locks join the doors and no lockers
Nice hostel with friendly staff. They offer a very good tour to the Islas Ballestas.
Great hostel in the center of Paracas. Close to amenities. Very friendly and helpful staff. Would recommend friends and family to stay here.
The hostel is great! It´s the best starting point to visit the islands and the national reserve. The owner is very helpful and organizes tours.
This hostel was in a great location and provided exactly what we needed for a day in Paracas to visit the Ballestas islands. The hostel owner Alberto was super helpful and everything was nice and clean.
The owner of this place is a champion and makes you feel very welcome and comfortable straight away. He explains and helps with everything. The place is very clean and has a good enough kitchen for most people. I highly recommend this hostel, not for a party though. Thanks for everything
Alberto is a very gracious and helpful host. We stayed in both a private ensuite and a private shared room, and we found the extra price for the ensuite is well worth it because those rooms are much cooler in the very hot afternoon, and much, much quieter at night. My only real complaint is that the internet wasn't very strong - half the time I could hardly get it working (my wife had less problems on her computer). The location is decent, beach is awesome, kitchen is okay. I'd recommend it.
Excellent location. Very enthusiastic manager, who will help you with tours (we used a different company) and answer whatever questions you may have. The rooms were incredibly hot in the afternoon, but we weren't around much anyway, and there is plenty of shaded public areas to lounge around. The kitchen looked great as well.
Nice location, close to the beach and to tour operators for your trip to ballestas Islands. Staf is very friendly and helpfull. Allowed me to stay to wait for my bus to Ica, later in the afternoon. Internetconnection was ok, but sometimes stopped. it had to do with the cell reception, so I was told. Dorm smelled, bed was little too soft, but ok for 1 night
It's ok. But having no locks on dorm doors and no lockers either is useless. Witnessing a member of staff simply rearranging a used bed for a new guest to use and not even changing the sheets made me angry. If you do one thing for backpackers at least give them a clean bed.
Alberto was super nice and helpful and made me practice my Spanish. Rooms were basic but clean. Would recommend to anyone taking a trip to paracas.
Basic conditions with a well equiped kitchen, friedly staff and a nice place for a beach stay with a surfers atmosphere
Very good hostel! No problems whatsoever and great tour packages!
Very nice and helpfull staff. The delux dobble room was great.
The owner was very friendly and helpful. Rooms were fine. I wouldn`t recommend staying too long in Paracas since there is not much to do except for the ballestas island and national park tour.
