    I was so welcomed when I arrived! The staff is very professional but at the same time felt like I was arriving in someone’s home!!! Suzy was the one to welcome me and when I left early for the Colca Canyon she assured me that I was going to be picked up. The other girl with the glasses I forgot her name helped me quite a bit as well and they were both so friendly!!! I also met some great people that were staying!!!! the kitchen was clean and very organized!!

    This hostel was great! A great location from the main square. Staff were very accommodating and the place was very clean. It's a quiet hostel so don't expect a party. The breakfast is minimal, so I would suggest getting some groceries for more sustenance. Overall though, a good hostel. I would stay again!

    We stayed 2 nights one in a double private with shared bathroom another in a 4 bed dorm (which cost more for the two of us) Nice little quirky hostel. Great atmosphere. Hot showers with good pressure and cleaned regularly. Oatmeal and bread with jam as well as coffee for breakfast was great. Lockers in dorm room, dorm bed with good quality curtains. It is a bit old but that doesn't bother us. It's a bit further out of town but that means quiet nights sleep...still easily walkable to centre

    Overall 8/10 Everything was great apart from breakfast... below average for SA. They have cooking facilities, a prison gym, hammocks etc v fun. Great staff, generally seem to attract a great crowd, excellent security, beds are comfy. The only fault our dorm was next to reception so v noisy however, not their fault & was cheaper. They allowed us to kept our bags there when we did the Colca trek 10/10. Would return xx

    Great hostel with hot showers and free yoga. Breakfast was the standard bread and jam. There was a computer to use and print and scan facilities. Beds were small. Nice atmosphere.

    I stayed here for 3 nights in a private room with a double bed. It was a very spacious room and the bed was comfortable and warm. The hostel is very centrally located on a quiet street but a few minute walk from the main square, which made it easy to pop in quick during the day if needed. It was extremely quiet at night, no one really hanging around at all so it was great for a quiet night's sleep, but not if you're looking to socialize and I don't think there is a bar in the hostel.
