Lovely hostel with very helpful and friendly staff. The walls in the room were a little thin but otherwise the room, and toilets etc, were very clean. Thank you!


We spent one night in a dorm was on the third floor and the second and third floors were still under construction! There were nails on the ground and unfinished staircases. Dorm door did not lock and there were no lockers so security is poor. The bathroom and shower on the second floor. The ground floor looked lovely with double and triple rooms and a nice patio with hammocks. There was a kitchen and good wifi. The location is good and the staff booked our tours. Will be nice when finished!


Alberto and the staff was absolutely wonderful aiding us in organizing tours and sharing knowledge of the area. One of the best hostels we experienced in South America


Good location. Staff is awesome, they are very good providing information about things to do in Paracas, restaurants, and tours.


Great hostel, quite clean and Alberto the owner was extremely helpful and even helped us retool out itinerary. Only downside was poor Wifi. A little advice: I'm pretty sure the hostel pockets a good deal of the tour/shuttle money when you book through them so shop around for tours!


Staff very friendly and helpful. Good kitchen facilities and really good value for money!


The staff were really good here. Always happy to help. Really good place to stay in Barcelona

Nice place in a realy small town. Close to the action (Balistas Island boattours). Owner is helpfull with almost everything and explains the whole town clear when we arrived. Probably the best place to stay in town.


The best option in Paracas.


Nice hostel, and very helpful and friendly staff. They can book tours for your. The hammocks are great.


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.
