In Peru tourism is in great crisis due to the pandemic. Most of the hostels have gone bankrupt and close, we are one of the few who are struggling not to close and that is why we have reduced staff. Therefore, when you make a reservation you must inform your arrival time.
We have a REMOTE ELECTRIC PORTER with a camera that will be working so our guest can enter and go out whenever they want without the necessity to have staff to open the main door.

If your arrival time changes you must inform your new arrival time by whatsapp so we can organize someone of the staff will be at your check in time.
We will have a whatsApp group between our guests and a staff person as administrator, therefore we will add your phone in the whatsApp group which will also be removed once the check out is done.

VERY IMPORTANT: The entrance of people who are not our guests will be prohibited

Payments: At the check-in te in soles. We accept visa with a charge of 3.98%

Only five blocks away to the main square. Even though we are situated downtown, we are in a peaceful neighborhood away from the hustle and bustle of the streets around the main square in a private neighborhood. Our location is perfect because it's near banks, supermarkets, bars, and principal tourist attractions. View House Rules

    This hostel has to be one of my favourites I’ve stayed in. The hostel was very clean and the staff was amazing and so helpful! The hostel has everything you need and more. Yoga, workout area, tv rooms, kitchen ect. It was also such a great space to meet other travellers. The hostel offered so many spots to hangout. The location was also great (I was able to walk everywhere). Can’t recommend enough!!

    This hostel is where I spent my two week covid quarantine but I would’ve given a great review regardless. Don’t look anywhere else, this hostel is fantastic, staff are amazing, there’s loads of facilities including yoga, pool, tv rooms, kitchen and two courtyards to hang out. I spent almost three weeks in total here with 34 others in quarantine and it was the perfect place to be. Special thanks to eveline the owner and Jose luis on reception for supporting us and helping us with everything!

    Nice, clean hostel with a chilled vibe. Free yoga in the morning was good. We booked Colca Canyon through the hostel and it was a little more expensive than the rest of our group had paid but a very good tour and convenient. Let us store our luggage while doing the trek

    Nice hostel, good environment. Loud if your room is near the kitchen. Breakfast is superrr basic. Jose is nice and helpful, the lady who works nights not so much. They charge more for colca canyon than the company itself so book direct with the company. Good laundry service. Decently clean. Nice to have curtains and individual plugs (although a little tilted). Could use bigger lockers. I would stay again

    Beds with privacy curtains. Plenty of space in the 4 bed dorm. Enough bathrooms and showers and lots of common areas. Hot water at all times. Arrived very early and they were strict about no check in until 12:30, but they did allow us to store our bags and use the facilities including the free breakfast. My only complaint is that they stripped my bed before checkout time while I was still packing.

    I liked it better than my previous hostel at Arequipa. The atmosphere was better, common areas are also good. You can book tours at the reception, but I think if you book at Plaza de Armas it is cheaper. The location is not ideal, it is a few blocks walking to Plaza de Armas.
