We reserved a room in the pirwa hostel, but were given a room in the adjoining camiluz hostel. Pleasant staff but little to no atmosphere or natural light. Shower was warm but no more than a trickle. Nice to be picked up and dropped off at the station but staff seemed pushy about booking tours/positive ratings. Advertised kitchen was out of bounds, even to wash hands.Far out from central nasca and beware the benevolent old women offering to do your laundry, it's extortionate even for Peru.

Excellent hostel, when i first arrived the owner was there waiting to pick me up without me even asking. He was very helpful at arranging tours of the Nazca lines and sandboarding/dune buggying. Location is only a few minutes away from the bus station also.


Lovely hostess,she saved breakfast for us when we were delayed getting back after our flight over the lines. No English spoken by the staff. Hostel is actually called something else (can't remember exact name, begins with C) but is Pirwa on Hostelworld


The place was awesome and me and my buddy had this huge room and bathroom to ourselves. Worked out swimmingly :)


Great place two blocks away from the main square. Clean. Lovely staff very helpful. Huge locker in the room but only 2. Lovely breakfast. Shower don't have much power but they are hot.


The showers were not vey hot and the presssure was awful
