    Great, helpful staff, especially Nicole. The "kitchen" is small and not free--it costs 5 soles to use. The breakfast is a pair of pathetic, whitebread air-puffs. I propose: scrap the free breakfast and just let us have the kitchen! Other than than, a great hostel. (Oh, and fix the electrical outlets in the lockers--a great idea and a convenience if only they worked!)
