    Our stay in Huaraz was fantastic! Arty (the owner) was very welcoming and made us feel at home the minute we got there. He was very attentive, friendly and helpful when asking about the best things to do in Huaraz. The location was perfect, only a short walk from everything that is needed. There is a great communal atmosphere within the hostel. Arty is an experienced mountaineer, with great knowledge of all the best hikes which can be booked at the hostel for a good price.

    It's a really nice hostel and in a perfect location, the included breakfast is not worth it, there were problems with the toilet in our room almost always, the room is a bit crowded but there are lovely common areas. Booked for 2 nights but did not extend...

    Good place to base yourself for trekking and hikes, not the most amazing hostel but does the job. The staff are really nice and helpful with planning hikes, and has a decent kitchen and spaces for hanging out, and breakfast every morning is nice. Could be cleaner and rooms are pretty basic. Also very much an Israeli hostel, so expect lots of Hebrew!

    Nice hostel and helpful staff (some of them are quite knowledgeable about hiking trails in the province). Amazing resident cats whom you can pet every day! I was hoping to do some bouldering in the afternoons as the hostel advertises its climbing wall but in practice it is not really functional (only one tiny mat for the entire wall).

    One man was really helpful in booking a tour to lake 69 which was our main reason of going to huaraz, however other staff were quite surly and whenever we went up for food in the evening as they have a menu out we always got turned away which we were a bit confused about. But in good location for huaraz and good for a night or two!
