Kokopelli Beachpackers

Mancora, Peru
86%

The only complaint i have is the pool was closed for the first day we were there(due to a lack of water in the area). we had stayed here before and koko has improved. we liked it last time but the foreign volunteers were brutal. It seems that koko is under new management and they actually expect them to work and do a good job.breakfast is way more organized, not first come first serve in the bar area. you actually get eggs, juice, coffee or tea.the double ensuite room is really nice! recommended


Hotel Ollanta

Ica, Peru
71%

the owners were very nice. I know they are trying to improve the hotel but it is definitely in a transitional phase and might be ahead of them. There was basically no water for most of our stay. Some rooms have been redone and are better than others, we ended up in newer rooms because they had more water ( a trickle). There was scafolding up by our intial rooms and windows didn't lock. The rooftop is pretty dated, lights don't work... You need to take cabs to most places

Macondo Hotel

Canoa, Ecuador

Felix is very nice, He let us have our room at 5am. The hotel is located on the main square. Our room was very bright and clean. We had a great view of tthe park. Therew is a nice roof top patio. We had hot water the whole time we were there. This has more of a hotel atomsphere than a hostel atomsphere. Laundry was expensive.

This hostel is very nice and bright. The rooms are big, comfortable and they actually had a rack on the wall to hang stuff. Bathrooms were really nice and always lots of hot water. The atomsphere at the hostel over christmas was really fun. Loved the all day coffee.

We got here later than expected after a 31 hour bus ride. We were hoping to get a beer and small snack but nothing was open in the neighborhhood. It was 10 at night but it was also saturday even the sol mall was closed. The hostel is closer to the airport than the bus station. Rooms are basic. The owner was nice.i think that i would look for something closer to more bars and restaurants.

Great alternative to staying in miraflores! We liked the location because it was closer to the linea bus station and the airport. They let us check in at 6 am even though the normal check in was 3 pm. The building is really nicely done and the showers were really good. it can be a bit noisey in the hostel, things echo and the hostel is above other commercial spaces.

La Casa de Maruja BB

Huaraz, Peru
97%

The location is a bit out of town but it is close to the start of alot of the hikes and the companies pick you up. We walked into town one day and it took about 25 minutes. It is well worth it to stay here as the owners are very accommodating and friendly. For example, we arrived at 6.00 am and got our room with free breakfast and one night we got home later than is normal from a day hike and marujas husband was outside waiting for us because he was so worried about us. They made dinner for us

Residencial Munaywasi

Trujillo, Peru
71%

it was an uninviting vibe in the hostel, it was similar to staying at a great aunts place where you feel you have to be really quiet and not touch anything.so the atomsphere is definitely lacking. The lady who cleaned the hostel was really strange and kept getting mad at us for using the bathroom. she told us to use another bathroom and then got mad us when we used that bathroom and told us to use another one.

Ekeko Hostel

Lima, Peru
83%

The hostel was nice. The common areas are big and the furniture is comfortable. Our room which was a double ensuite was new. the door was thin and there was an open area for ventilation. This wouldn't have been a problem except that they do not enforce their rules about being quiet after 11pm, allowing guests to party from 1-3am. Our room was basically in the smoking area so it was loud/smoky. We were fine with this because we want people to have fun but it wasn't possible for us to block noise

Colonial House Inn

Arequipa, Peru

The staff here was really nice. They gave us a huge room that had a lot of character. We loved eating breakfast on the roof top. The beds were comfy and the showers were nice and hot. The hostel is quiet and peaceful. The hostel is an older place and is quite dated, some of the furniture could be replaced but we enjoyed our stay and would stay there again.

Pisko & Soul

Cusco, Peru

The staff was extremely helpful especially eduardo. He made us breakfast which was simple but very tasty.We loved the location in the San blas area, close to bars and restaurants. The hostel has a basic Peruvian style. The beds were really comfortable with real duvets and about three blankets. The only criticism is that the common areas were a bit chilly.

Hostal Provenzal

La Paz, Bolivia
91%

The service at the hotel was friendly and helpful. The location at the 4 corners is great, lots of bars, restaurants.... Without having to walk up hill. The room was nice and spacious, we had really nice hot showers and our room had strong enough internet signal to Skype. There weren't alot of common spaces and we barely saw any other travelers, so I wouldn't recommend the provenzal for people who are looking to meet up with other travelers. Breakfast was fine,brought our own fruit/peanutbutter

Quechua Inn

Sucre, Bolivia
91%

We liked the homey feel of this hostel. It was clean, spacious and Ricardo was super helpful. The kitchen was nice and the hostel is close to the central market so it is easy to buy great things to make. When the weather is nice the upstairs patios are great spots to relax. We thought that the beds were not comfortable and the directions to the hostel were hard to follow because Sucre doesn't have a lot of street signs.

It is a nice place to stay, a lot of common spaces. Water came into our room when it rained but there was a table where we could put our packs so they did not get wet. The pool area is really nice.


7 Duendes Twin Hostel

Salta, Argentina

Our room and shower were extremely nice and clean at this hostel. It is located about a 15 minute walk from the central plaza. We had read reviews about this and had decided to stay here anyway because we like walking but , it isn't an amazing neighborhood so we ended up taking cabs home at night. If we had to do it again, we would want to stay closer to the center.

We stayed over Christmas and had a great time. It is a big hostel but there are a lot of common spaces to relax or meet other people. The pool is really small but it was so hot that it was a nice to have. Free use of the the washing machine was really helpful. The hostel is located about 15 minutes walk from the main square. The staff was really helpful.

Cordoba, Argentina

We felt that this hostel was very average and were surprised by its very high rating. It is located near furniture stores and hardware stores in the city. The common areas were very cramped and we were never really able to use the kitchen because it was so crowded. The kitchen was kind of dated and gross anyway.

the hotel was fine but it wasn't stand out. even though the hotel is only 200 meters from town we were urged to take a taxi at night. i think that it would have just been easier to stay in town.
