We had a very nice and comfortable stay! The hostel has a familiar atmosphere and the family owning this hostel tried to fulfill the wishes of every guest. I highly recommend this hostel for a stay in Puno!

We loved our stay at this hostel. The staff was friendly and very helpful. We didn't pay a lot and still got good value for our money. The hostel was clean and cosy and every morning when we woke up they had organized breakfast at the dining room table. The breakfast was good, white bread, marmalade and tea/coffee and included in the prize. Comfortable beds and hot water in the shower. The only downside was that it's located a bit outside of the main streets, but still within walking distance.

We stayed there for two nights in double room. It's the cheapest we found. So we booked it. Hot water shower, simple breakfast. Location was little out of center but its quiet. We paid 5sols to take taxi from bus terminal. The staff was ok. Let us check in when we arrived 5:00am in the morning. I believe it's because of the low season. However when we check out, we notice that they cleaned our room but didn't change bed sheet. We could be wrong but just a headsup.


Very helpful staff and a nice quiet place to stay!


I stayed here with a friend during the first leg of our Peruvian tour. Enrique, the owner, was absolutely lovely, the beds were very comfortable, and the shower was awesome, especially after our cold, dusty overnight bus trip from Cochabamba. I highly recommend this place, it was absolutely excellent.
