Big dorm. Arrived early allowed to get bed. Kitchen basic. No indoor common area. Staff spoke no English. Tried on several occasions to speak in my very basic Spanish, but the girl there wasn't interested in trying to help./just ignored myqueries.
Pros: Great hostel, close to supermarket & cheap places to eat. Friendly, helpful staff - booked good value Salkantay trek next door. Cons: No real indoor area - small tv room - so very cold in evening. Only 2 male toilets/frequently occupied. Showers were usually cold.
Hostel has character . But freezing cold/no heating. fridge outside.Everyone in kitchen to warm up. Couldn´t cook. In morning condensation dripiing from ceilings onto beds and in kitchen. Groups of people not very sociable. Kept forcing me out of rooms - turning tv on very loud. Woke up in night - cat on bed- began to eat my food. Allowed me to check out after one night.- Some good outsde areas to sit but too cold to go out.
