    I stayed at Aji Hostel for a few weeks while studying Spanish and I had such a great time! I came as a solo traveler and the social atmosphere is great (free pisco and pasta nights are particularly good for meeting new people). The newer, gray building is best to stay in- lots of light and updated facilities. Breakfast is good, includes eggs, bread, and fruit. Don’t think there are many excursions offered and it can be a bit noisy bc of social atmosphere, but overall a great stay. I’ll be back!

    Lovely stay. We had a private room all was good except the shower wasn’t amazing and took a while to get warm. There was a bbq on Friday evening which is a great way to meet people.

    I had a great time! I was there on a Wednesday night so we had complimentary pasta and wine. The complimentary breakfast was great, too! The staff are super friendly and the building is lovely. There are some good places to eat nearby and its not a super long walk to the museo de arte precolombino among other places. Only downsides were that the shower didn't run hot and there were no towels for rent.

    The property is centrally located. Most main attractions are walking distance. Nice layout, clean facilities, large chill area, & a cozy atmosphere. Make sure to have some warmer lounge clothes as the common areas can be cold. Overall a very nice hostel, would stay again.

    Fine hostel, good location, pretty clean. Beds were extremely squeaky which was not great. Only thing was that we wanted to do laundry and they had said we would get it back in time for our flight the next day, we did but half of it was still soaking wet so we had to take a bag of wet laundry with us.
