more like a hotel than a hostel. the staff were amazing, really helpful and friendly, thanks! good breakfast included with fruit, eggs, yoghurt, bread, cheese/ham, coffee. really secure building, just a few blocks from the la mariscal area, and a great indian restaurant across the road. it is a bit on the pricy-side but definitely worth it, the shower was always really hot. only bad thing was it was quite noisy between 4-8am with the car lot across the road.

Good location a couple of blocks from the square and the pedestrian street with shops/restaurants. Cheap veggie restaurant just down the road (5 soles for the set menu). Staff were great, bed wasn't the comfiest and the shower on the top floor had really weak water pressure, but otherwise fine. The owners also had a very cute little dog who walks about the hostel :-)

we were only here for 1 night, but the beds were comfy. bathroom a bit dated looking, but shower was fine. huge kitchen and great staff, location is great, right in miraflores, and just round the corner from an amazing supermarket (wong's)

cosy rooms in an old style building, with a great view of cusco. very secure (outside door was always locked). great location, though up a hill (which works well on your fitness/acclimatising!). the couple who run the place were lovely. the only issue was that the bed was really creaky, but we stayed here almost a week and would recommend - thanks! :-)

the room was pretty basic, but the shower was amazing, hottest and strongest we've had so far in peru! it was sometimes a bit difficult to get the owner-lady's attention as she was busy with other things, but she was really friendly. excellent location right on the square, and we left our backpacks over night while we went down the canyon with no problems (3 soles each).

The hostel is in a great building with great terraces for catching the sun and views of the volcano and surrounding mountains. Location is great too with the main square a few minutes walk away. Staff were very helpful. Things to improve might include the lighting in room being really dim, the intercom going off loudly through the night and the charge of 7 soles to use the oven. Other than that it's a cool place in a great location in an amazing city.

Thanks for your coments . Ist very important to us. But there is a mistaque. Because we do not charge for using the stove, you could have cooked. What we charge is for the use of the oven. Thanks ...Have a good day

Great hostel. Relaxed, laid back atmosphere and great staff to help you get around the city. Nice common areas to meet fellow travelers too. If you're arriving in Santiago after a long flight or bus journey this is the perfect place to recover before exploring the city.

great location, and we loved the pool table! unfortunately were sharing a room with a guy who snored like a wilderbeast ALL night, but that's not the hostel's fault! not many ppl staying but it was winter, can imagine it would be a great place in the summer, and the breakfast was good too.

this place was amazing, more of a boutique hotel than a hostel. the owner cooked us a really nice meal & picked out a brilliant bottle of Uruguayan red to go with, it was a bit on the expensive side, but as it was a 30th b'day we didn't mind. we chatted with the owner that evening, but he gave us space while we ate. we wished we could have stayed longer to enjoy the peace of the farm & to try out the sauna! it's a great place to stay between montevideo and colonia. as it's a farm there are dogs,

this hostel could benefit from some sort of soft seating like sofas or beanbags, didn't like the plastic bed covers as it was very sweaty, and the 10 bed dorm was cramped with a low ceiling which made it a bit claustrophobic on the top bunk, but it's a nice old building so not much they can do about that! the staff were really friendly & helpful, and the kitchen area was really good - thanks :-)

for the price the showers could have been much cleaner/nicer. cross between hostel/hotel which doesn't work too well. but beautiful building in great location with nice staff and v. comfy beds. bar too expensive, dull and devoid of people.

day time staff speak no english, and generally seem to be a bit confused about why you are there! bookings didn't seem to matter either. the hostel is sort of tibetan style and amenities are basic but ok. other backpackers are friendly and it's an alright place for 1 night.

the beds were comfy, the bathrooms/toilets excellent and always clean, the location was very central, even the bar was nice (although the menu was incorrect, and the bar was expensive and not well stocked) the staff spoke good english and seemed almost too helpful, the only drawback was that the hostel didn't have any atmosphere and seemed empty most of the time, but otherwise fine.

the walls in this hostel are paper thin, so you can hear everything that is going on outside your room, including people burping, hocking up and talking on the phone at 3am! also our room didn't have a window and the bed was quite lumpy! if it wasn't for the location in wudaoku i would definitely not stay here again.
