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.
