    Great hostel, lovely vibes, and great free breakfast! They let us even keep our backpacks in storage after we checked out. Would recommend and stay here again!

    Really good hostel, my favourite thing about it was the layout of the common areas. Lots of outdoor space with shade and tables. I met let's of cool people here that I ended up meeting back up with later during a backpacking trip. The staff are awesome, and after I left tracked down an item I forgot. I would definitely go back.

    The location of the hostel is great, short walk to downtown area with a supermarket close by. The staff are great and very informative. The tour prices was reasonable and I was happy with the Colca Canyon tour I booked through the hostel. Not a party hostel but lots of communal space to meet with people. And they have an awesome dog too!

    Staff is very helpful. Price is great. I stayed in a 4 bed dorm which was good. The bathrooms were clean, too. Breakfast was way too basic. Location is not too far from the Plaza de Armas. It feels like a local residential area. I was able to book a 2 day Colca Canyon Trek at the reception. They were nice enough to store my luggage for me while I was away on the trek even when I had checked out. I'd definitely stay at this hostel again.

    Chill hostel to stay at. Feels like the option for those who want to do a lot of activities in the day and not party. They will arrange your Colca Canyon tour and other options. Quiet time starts at 10/11ish. Also they have a free yoga class. People who stay there are of the laid back variety, pretty easy to meet others. I think the beds could be better, also charger plugs in my room were too loose, hard to use.

    Nice and clean hostel, very good if your on a budget rooms aren’t that expensive. Bathrooms are a bit dated but always very clean. Daily free yoga is a very nice touch. Not to far to walk to central market, main square or the big supermarket
