    I really enjoyed my stay at Chakra Runa. There was a bit of building work going on when I arrived so the hostel layout was slightly different than expected but the work should soon be complete. Regardless it is a comfortable, well equipped hostel with super friendly, helpful, accommodating staff. I stayed for more than a week for various reasons and enjoyed my stay very much. The location is perfect, just a few minutes walk from the Plaza and a short stroll to the markets etc. Recommended!

    We enjoyed every minute of our stay. The owner family is really nice, friendly and helpful. The kitchen was well stocked, everything was very clean. The shower is hot, the beds comfy and the wifi works very well. 10 min to plaza de armas, 10 min to the main bus station. We would definitely come again. :)

    We were greeted by the Herbert (the owner), who is very welcoming. He definitely has a young spirit and is down to show anyone around Cajamarca. We decided to take his historical tour, which we enjoyed. Herbert is super knowledgeable about all of Cajamarca and tells you more than just the myths and legends of the city. The tour ends with two super cool local bars that you won't find online. Didn't have super warm shower water but the room was nice! It is 15 min walk to the center, which I liked.

    Owner is extremely friendly and willing to help. Beds have outlets and a lamp (not so bright that it will disturb others). Location is good; a 15 min walk to the plaza. On a negative side, when I arrived I was waiting outside the wrong side which appeared to be under construction. No one there to hear the bell. After 15 mins a neighbor came out and contacted the owner for me. Turns out the entrance is on the other side. A few other people had the same problem. Overall good hostel.

    Comfortable hostel! Hot showers often but not always, cold inside the hostel but great blankets and bedding to keep you warm at night. Kitchen was dirty but had everything you need. Good staff, helpful and present! Location a few blocks from the plaza de armas and Cajamarca generally feels quite safe. Simple but good place to stay

    Herbert and his family were so welcoming and helpful! We ended up having to stay in dorm beds because the private we booked was not available but Herbert ensured we had the room to ourselves which was nice. A heads up if you book here - there are no private bathrooms, despite the descriptions.

    Really good value for price! Although the location is a bit off it's all really close. The staff isn't present but can be reached easily. No atmosphere what's do ever

    Wonderful owners but the place is ridiculously dirty. There is a thick layer of scum on the bathroom surfaces and no soap anywhere in the hostel... the sheets had stains and other people’s hair.

    I hate writing negative reviews, but I genuinely struggle to find a single positive thing to say about this place. It’s dark, dingy, with spotty hot water, WiFi that cuts out every few minutes, filthy bathrooms, a pervasive stench throughout the hostel, rickety bunk beds that are impossible to sleep in if the person above you makes even the slightest movement (much less masturbates incessantly as my bunkmate was fond of doing), and nothing to speak for it in terms of location either.
