Spent one night there before we did a tour to Machu Picchu. We came again :-) Beautiful room with good shower. It is really clean and yes, it is more a hotel than a hostel. Around 15min to Plaza de Armas, 5min to two supermarkets and close to close to Mercado San Pedro (don't miss it). Try to get a room which doesn't face noisy Av. del Ejercito :-)


It's a little further from the plaza than we realized but facilities were clean and safe.


The staff was very nice and helpful. Brian even helped us to call the agent of Puno by using their mobile phone several times to confirm the tour and the pick up time. And Vivian helped us to negotiate with the taxi driver to visit the Inca sites twice. Thank you both of you once again. Moreover, the breakfast was very delicious, especially the fresh juice, cripsy bread and the eggs. Although it is not close to the Plaza, it is a quite place to get a good sleep. Thanks all of you!!!


This hostel is more like a hotel, they clean your room everyday and you can choose from 4 breakfast options (incl). Location is a bit out of the center, 15-20 min walk to plaza de armas.


Extremely clean. Good breakfast. Helpful staff. Location is not ideal.


We loved the hostel. Unfortunately we got a recommendation for a Bus to Puerto Maldonado - we wanted to take another Company called Transzela (with which had really good expirences) but the woman (which was not directly from the hostel) told us to use Tepsa (with a presidential class, much better, blabla). Tepsa was ok, but Transzela was far better. And we had to pay 70 Soles pP - the same price we had to pay for Transzela. But that was not the original price - that was 49 Soles....


A nice, clean and safe Hostel. 15 Minutes walk to Plaza de Armas.


Very clean hostel but not very close to the action. It's about a 15 minute walk to the Plaza de Armas but if you don't mind that you get a Hotel style hostel with excellent breakfast and excellent facilities.


When I chose this hostel I've read it was a 10 minute walk from the main square but they didn't mention the walk was through an awful dark street full of rubbish and with an awful smell. It is a comfortable clean place but the location sucks. If you decide to stay here, make sure you have Soles since they charge you 5% fee for using credit card. You shoul also get there before it gets dark since we got there at 10 and it was creepy to walk in that neighbourhood!


Can be noisy in mornings.


Was like a hotel!!! Best value for the price in all of Peru and most luxurious. Clean bathroom and amazing hot shower! Only place in Peru that offered eggs for free included in the breakfast. Has a cute rooftop kitchen access with a computer! Staff was friendly!!


The city is small, so the hostel is close to everything. The staff was kind and very helpfull. The breakfast is great! Coffee or tea, juice, fruit salad, cereal, yogurt, bread, eggs, pancakes.... Really amazing! The hostel is clean and has hot shower!
