11th Sep 2014

Really nice hostel! Stayed there on the last days of our trip. Beach is close, Mall is close, Supermarket is close, Internet is a bit crappy upstairs, cleaning lady is crazy because she cleans too long so you cannot access your room sometimes (especially if you stay in the house a day). But it is very clean and bathrooms are nice! Kitchen has everything you need but can get a bit cramped if everyone wants to cook. Maybe add more seating possibilities in the shade downstairs??

It is a really nice hostel and we liked to stay there. There is a small kitchen, never cooked there. 8-bed dorm was really nice with curtains and a light. Some of them didn't work but they were fixing the hostel ... maybe there's one in my bed ;-) What was really annoying was the staff (not the owner). They hanged around all day long, occupied TV, didn't greet and that pissed me off. By the way the room (8-bed dorm) had AC and it got really cold one night, so better bring a pullover or so.

Great hostel with kitchen, cool DVD-place and nice bathrooms. Shower was hot :-) 10mins to center, close to river, 10mins to supermarket. Our room was a bit dark and loveless. Noisy street. We would stay there again!

Nice hostel and close to Plaza de Armas. Owner is really helpful and gives loads of information about Chan Chan and all other sites. Not a party hostel - it was quiet and other travellers were friendly. It was clean but we missed the soap in bathroom (general problem in SA). Wifi was great and kitchen was well equipped. Hostel is close to Micro stop to Chan Chan. Yes, you can do it by yourself and don't need to do an expensive tour. Just go in the "early" morning (9am) so you miss the groups ;-)

Nice family based hostel/hotel. It isn't close to anything except a big mall which was great after 6 months of travelling in South America. Room was ok but not as clean as expected. Bathroom wasn't cleaned on Sunday but it was Peruvian National Day. Family was friendly and helpful and we even could use their kitchen.

Really friendly, good organised, clean and good prices for tours. What was bad? Well, the walls are really thin and you can hear EVERYTHING from your neighbours. It is just a wooden wall so no insulation. Kitchen was ok, sometimes a bit crowded ... but come on, it is a hostel ;-)

We liked the location because it is not too far from centre and all the agencies for tour booking. Rooms are really dark but bed was comfortable and bathroom was ok. There was a kitchen - dirty, don't like. Old food was standing around and it smelled. Staff/owner is really chaotic. It seems they don't know who stays in which room - but it worked for us. We stayed two nights (before and after tour) and then changed Samana Wasi (same street, really close) which got bright rooms and same price :-)

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 :-)

We had a great stay in this hostel! Friendly and helpful staff - great tips for tours or restaurants (Gracias Veronica!), it isn't a party hostel but atmosphere was great because we met great people! Kitchen is well equipped and you can play billard or ping-pong. Rooms are rustic but really clean. We missed the lockers in our 4-bed-dorm. But you can hand your valuable-items to the reception and they guard it. Lockers are better. Would go back there anytime!

we stayed there for two nights - two nights of loud party. second night I complained, at around 4am, that we cannot sleep and the guy from staff said like: "I'm sorry but what could I do, they were so loud and I told them to quiet down but it didn't work" ... thanks! Next morning I asked for a reduction for this night because we couldn't sleep. Another point was cleanliness. Room stunk, toilets were dirty like in a Bolivian busstation. We changed to Poramba Hostel close by and it was GREAT!

We stayed only one night because we continued to Uruguay. Stayed in the 6-bed-dorm. Big room but the beds are a bit too close together. Staff was really helpful and friendly! You can book tours and even ferry tickets to Uruguay there. Breakfast was big and good! It was a quiet night with good people there. We come back after our Uruguay-trip :-)

We arrived late, there was no toilet paper and no soap in the bathroom. On floor: one bathroom for boys'n'girls. Shower and toilet in bathroom = funny waiting! There was a private party of the owner until 03.00AM --> no sleep. Owner gave us a bit of our money back after we claimed this, thnx. Next morning...there was this sign "Breakfast 07:30 - 10:00" ... no one was up and breakfast was served 09:30! WTF!? Lazy staff and for this price...go to another hostel like "Cruz del Sur"

A great place to stay! Hostel is really close to the beautiful cementery. A few blocks to the center you will find a supermarket. Don't forget to buy a big piece of salmon in the fish-market (far away).The hostel is about 15min from city center. Kitchen and "living room" are really new and built out of wood. Kitchen is awesome but a bit small if all want to cook. We were off season so it was no problem. Breakfast is just great - missed dulce de leche...but it is Chile ;-) Owner was so friendly!

More like a hotel! Breakfast ... best ever (3 different meats, 2 sorts of cheese, 4 different juices, jam, toast, coffee, yoghurt, cereals! OMG!). Unfortunately the walls are really thin so you can hear nearly every word of your neighbours (in our case a crying baby). It was really clean and the shower was the best we had after 3 months in South America. There is no kitchen so you have to go out or eat your sandwich.

Arrived there and the lady diddn't know anything about it ... great. So she walked back and called her friend from Niko's which is really close. We checked in there but it was ... really, really a basic place. Would never go there again.

First of all - best staff ever :-) A real backpacker-hostel where you can book tours and get picked up in the morning for the tour. Staff was really flexible and helpful. Rooms were good and showers really hot! Just perfect after a cold day in Parque Nacional Perito Moreno. It is a bit outside of city center but the view is great and supermarket close. If you are looking for a quiet hostel - it will suit you. One point they should improve is the kitchen which is too small.

First or all...really nice staff :-) Thanks! It was cozy but: we got the room over the reception and you can hear the music and all of the communication going on down there. Bathroom was ok - a bit dark but hot showers :-) Beds were ok but matresses a bit old.

Easy place to stay with nice staff. Bed was not that clean and there was a noisy ventilaton outside. So if you open the window you can hear it really good. It is really close to the busstation to Trevelin and the hostel is really central.

Most important info is that we stayed in the 8 bed dorm. The experience was not really good because you do not have enough of space in the small room. I don't know how the other rooms are. For me the bathroom was under the average.You can not lock the door and one of the man-toilets (there are two) had no toilet-seat (do not like). Half of the big stove couldn't be used because it didn't work - in general, the kitchen area is too crowded.
