The staff speaks english and are very kind and helpfull. The room er had was located with view to the Road and just next to the stairs, and it was very loudly, but that is the only bad thing to say about this hostel.
Great location- hot water would run out of a night but in the mornings the showers were excellent. Breakfast good and our host organised a tour and bus with no fuss. We stayed again after being at a home stay at Lake Titicaca - highly recommend it!
The staff were quite helpful with advice and expedited laundry service to accommodate our schedule :) The front desk was not always staffed, which was slightly inconvenient, and hot water for showers would have been a great addition.
This is a really nice hostel, but make sure to ask for a room near the ground floor, and not on the 5th floor like we were! The breakfast is very good, a proper contentinal breakfast with some ham, fruit, yogurt, juices, tea and coffee, and bread, butter and jams. The rooms are nice, comfortable beds, and a clean bathroom, but the water was not hot in the shower. There are computers on the ground floor, and more on the 5th floor where theres another common room. Theres also free tea and coffe.
We only stayed here one night but could have happily stayed longer. Lovely clean double room with comfortable bed and great ensuite. Friendly helpful staff, great breakfast, computers and wifi and a proper book exchange that is one for one!
The showers were amazing!!! Hot water with a ton of water pressure, great after spending the day wondering around chilly Puno. The staff were all great and the free breakfast had more than most hostels. the beds and bathrooms were all very nice.
Simple but good and clean hostel. The location is excellent, just around the corner from the main street with all the restaurants, agencies, etc. The hostel doesn't have much of atmosphere, but we didn't miss that since we just stayed for 2 nights.
I found Quechuas to be over all a good experience. The rooms are nice and the bathrooms clean with hot showers. The breakfast was the best part; it was filling items beyond the usual hard bread and butter. Excellent offering for breakfast.

The free breakfast is the best - freshly baked (seriously, still warm) bread, cheese, ham and AVOCADO, as well as some grains, yogurt, real juices and tea / coffee. Wonderful. The location is pretty good, two blocks from the main street. There´s a store next door where I could buy bottles of water for 1 sol. Also, the receptionist was very helpful - we had a 6 am bus to catch, so the receptionist made us some hot pressed sandwiches for the road, for free. Super nice! Definitely stay here.
Family owned hostal in a 6 floor building (breath taking climb :p ) Rooms are small but with own bathroom, nice and clean. It's very close to Plaza de Armas and the Main Shopping Street within a small and chaotic city! Breakfast was nice and staff arange everything for you (kind of own tour operator). Definitely no party hostal, but a good starting point for Tours in Puno and Lago Titicaca!
I liked this hostel. The breakfast is amazing compared to other hostels in Peru (buns, jam, butter, ham, avocado, fruit, juices, yogurt). The showers have hot water and the facilities are up to date and clean. The location is great, about 2 blocks from the downtown strip. Definitely recommended.
It has the best value for money I ever saw. Absolutely recommendable (what I was doing when possible).
I felt like this place was sort of a dump. It was one of the worst hostels I have ever stayed at and I´ve stayed at many. The main thing was it was absolutely freezing. I couldn´t sleep at all at night. The atmosphere was basically non exsistent and I felt that the staff wasn´t very helpful and there wasn´t anyone who spoke english to help if you did not speak the native language. I was supposed to stay there again, but decided to go elsewhere after not being happy with my initial stay.
We stayed here 5 nights which was longer than planned since we got sick just after we arrived (nothing to do with the hostal). The two guys who run it were both very nice and friendly. The included breakfast is a little step above the average with coffee/tea, bread, butter, jam, cheese, ham, fruit, yogurt and juice, offered from 6:00am to 8:00am. The wi-fi worked well from our room. The room and bathroom were clean. We had a double ensuite for around 75 soles per night. Good location.
