Lovely hostel, with lovely staff, in a great location. The kitchen and common area are quite small, but we never had a problem with it being too busy.

Very nice place to stay and good value for money. Breakfasts are not super cheap but very good. Aoi was really nice and recommended some good tours for us. Good socialising area too. I wish all Thailand hostels were as good as this.

We were the only guests at the hostel for our 4 night stay. The hostel is clean and spacious, and located in a quiet area close to the train station and a supermarket. There is a kitchen of sorts with a fridge and hot water, but no microwave of toaster (the addition of these would be a great idea). Wifi works well. There is a spacious and comfy common area.

Very nice place with great staff. Location isn't bad, as it's very close to the metro and train station. We had no problems getting around the city. There is a small kitchenette ideal from making your own breakfast and microwave meals etc. The room we had was quite small, though great care had been taken to make it feel cosy rather than cramped. Overall it's a great place to stay.

Loved the private dorm beds which come with a curtain, power socket, and lamp. Rooms are spacious and there are plenty of bathroom facilities. The bar sold decent food, but was a little pricy, but that's Paris. They do have microwaves though. It's a shame they make you pay for luggage storage though.

Covers the basic needs. The common areas are nice. The ensuite in our room was tiny and stunk, and the kitchen is very basic. The breakfast was a nice surprise.

6th Apr 2013

Hands down the best hostel we've stayed at in South America. Our stay in Bonito had the potential for disaster as there was a massive storm which closed all the snorkeling and waterfall tours for two days, but our hosts Jenny and Carlos did all they could to ensure we had a great time in Bonito despite the weather. The hostel is in a great location and has all the facilities you need. We definitely recommend staying here.

Such a great hostel. We really enjoyed our stay here. Our room, the kitchen, and the outdoor terrace had such amazing views! The staff are friendly, and the kitchen is really good. Breakfast is ok. The resident cat is a nice homely touch. We found the Wifi works well throughout most of the hostel. It's about a 5min walk to the main street and bus stop to the surrounding area, which is absolutely beautiful! We definitely recommend.

We had such a great time here. The staff are super friendly and informative, and the place is set up to encourage guests to socialise. This is definitely one of the best places we have stayed. Bathrooms clean, rooms spacious, and the kitchen is well equipped. It's close to everything you need, and the tour company the hostel works with is great.

We don't like having to give a bad review, but unfortunately this place was disappointing. The staff were friendly enough, and the breakfast was quite good, but we only got hot water twice during our five night stay (...they turn the gas off and on sporadically). Also the kitchen would be good if it was properly equipped - only one pot and one frying pan (with no handle) - the utensils are minimal also. The rooms are comfortable, however the place is set out like a motel rather than a hostel.

A good hostel with a good kitchen...spacious and well equipped. Didn't really have much of an atmosphere when we were there, but the hostel has a nice area for socialising..Breakfast is good value (and fresh). Staff are all friendly and helpful, especially the owner. It's a bit of a hike to the beach and not within walking distance to the surf, but if you rent gear there they drive you to and from the beach at a time that suits you. The supermarket is near by.

Great hostel. We really enjoyed our time here. Plenty of games/activities to keep yourself entertained, and a nice patio area with hammocks to relax. There are two kitchens which are reasonably well equipped. We could always cook when we wanted to...no waiting around. The supermarket is about 10mins walk away. Staff were really friendly and helpful with information about the city and tours. The tour operator they use for the Colca Trek is great too. The best showers are on the second floor.

Not a bad place to stay. It does feel more like a motel than a hostel, but the staff are friendly and there's a decent restaurant with pretty good food. The pool and roof top terrace are nice places to relax. We had a room with a private bathroom which unfortunately didn't get cleaned for the duration of a stay, which probably wouldn't have been a big deal had Huacachina not been such a sandy place. Other than this, we were happy with the accommodation and we enjoyed our stay here.

Neat place to stay. The lobby is filled with nick-knacks from around the world. Breakfast is good. It is a bit of a hike to the main square...maybe a fifteen minute walk, which is fine during the day, but would get a taxi after dark. The local area is cheaper than the centre of Cucso. Rooms are spacious and clean, but ours didn't have a window, so was a bit dark.

The hostel is nice. The breakfast was the best we've had in South America so far...cereal, fresh bread, fresh fruit, and fruit juice, and tea and coffee. There isn't a guest kitchen to use. Security is pretty good. We left our luggage in storage while we did the Inca Trail with no problems. Although, when we turned up at 11pm after returning from the Inca Trail our room was not ready and we had to wait 45mins for it to be cleaned without so much as an apology. Some staff could be friendlier.
