Not a place to stay if you plan to be in Lima for a while (location is convenient to the airport, but otherwise not nice), but a great spot if you're just there overnight for a flight. Wifi was good, breakfast was fine, room was spotless, quiet, and comfortable, staff were helpful, they can arrange drivers to/from the airport (take them up on this: the price is fair and you know it'll be safe!).
Lovely hostel in an ideal location for relaxing in Cusco. Just a few blocks away from the Plaza del Armas, but the stairs that take you from the PdA up to the hostel (good training for trekking, but totally manageable if you take your time--about 10 mins until your lungs adjust!) mean excellent views and a lot more peace and quiet than being on the square itself. The views!! Hostel was cheerful and spotless and quiet, staff helpful, good WiFi in rooms and common spaces, good basic breakfast.
Room was a little dark, but comfortable and spotless. Good Wifi. Great breakfast. Great location close to Plaza del Armas, restaurants, etc. Staff helpful in recommending places to eat and things to do. Only complaint was one staff member got a little handsy (drunk?) when checking me in at night...not cool, but ultimately harmless.
My shared room was poorly-ventilated (there was a window to the interior hallway, but the co-occupants insisted on keeping it closed) and stuffy, and being on the third bunk waaay up next to the ceiling was a little scary, but the rooms were clean and the location was decent. A fine place to stay in a pinch, but I wouldn't want to stay here long. GREAT restaurant across the street though!
Hostel location is ideal, deceptively quiet and peaceful and wooded neighborhood with LOTS going on (restaurants, bars, cafes, clubs), the bus to downtown BA stops right in front of the hostel, and the metro is a short walk away. Breakfast is really basic, but the hostel bar is great with a nice rooftop happy hour. WiFi cuts in and out but is available. Decent kitchen. Bathroom situation isn't ideal (only one shower) but was manageable.
Loved this hostel, a great base in Ushuaia. The staff were friendly and bend-over-backwards helpful and full of useful information. A lot of thought was put into making it a good place for backpackers, including good Wifi (although individual plugs for beds would be nice--got a little electronically crowded in rooms), lockers, luggage storage, in-house laundry, deep bathroom tub-style sinks if you want to do your own, great kitchen, fun common spaces, well-stocked in-house bar, fun atmosphere...

Loved this hostel so much I stayed for a month! Owner Brian did an excellent job designing it to be a fun and comfortable place for travelers: excellent kitchen, new parilla, nice outdoor patio, big common area great for eating, working, or hanging out. Bunk beds even each have individual charging stations! Hostel is kept spotless and staff are super friendly and full of helpful info. Location is far enough from town to be peaceful (close to a secret beach!), but accessible by bus. Perfect!
