It's a little far from the main square but overall is a pretty nice hostel.

Enrique and Frida are very warm, kind and always eager to help: they made our stay feel like home. We recommend the tours to Uros and Sillustani you can buy from the hostel, they are really good. Enrique and Frida always cared to know if we arrived to the pick up time and place for the tours. Big bathroom, hot water, big bedroom with comfortable beds. Hostel not too close to the main square but that was not a big deal, you can easily walk or take a cab to/from the hotel for a few soles.

Hot showers, great wifi, and an excellent price make this hostel a good deal, but the hosts make it a very pleasant stay. The family provides a small breakfast, friendly greeting, and suggestions for Titicaca and Inca excursions. You can bargain down the price of the lake excursion. It's not located in the center, but it's a ten-minute walk through a rather safe city to the best restaurants, 25 minutes to the lake.

We enjoyed our stay in Puno, not least because of the hostel we stayed in. The staff is a very friendly and helpful family who lives on the third floor, so that we had the whole second floor for ourselves most of the time. There is a nice common room with TV an free internet access, and the full equiped kitchen is free for use at any time. The whole hostel was always clean (the bathroom as well!). For sunny days there is even a roof top with a view on the city and lake Titicaca.

The couple who run the hostel are very helpful and didn¡t try to push tours on anyone but that was probably because we were all there Candelaria. I toilets & showers could have been cleaned a little more frequently but on the whole it weas a good hostel.
