i have booked a 4 people room and the double deck bed is not that security. It swing all night long. Other than that, all the things are good. Staff are good, bathroom are good, price are good.

The lights didnt work in the Room and we had to plug a lamp we found into the wall. The power point also flashed a bit... Didn't trust it with our devices. No hot water. Booked and airport transfer, got a confirmation email TWICE, but the transfer never happened so we had to get a taxi. Staff were somewhat apologetic, but didn't try to compensate their error. However the staff were helpful in booking taxis to leave and in how to travel to the old part of Peru and what to see.

This room has two switch on the wall, you didnt press the correct switch to put on the lights sorry ; for the other hand in the hostel one pipe had broken that day and that was the reason no hot water, for the accident that nobody is free to have , and the staff was worried about to conteined all the problem and waiting for the plumber, was not the best day ... this is it
