    Staff are super friendly and helpful here, booked my Colca Canyon trek through the hostel and they let me keep my baggage in storage during it. Cozy hostel, great for meeting people!

    The location is pretty good, quite far from the main square but not too far. The staff are the best part of this hostel, and the volunteer (Georgia) we met here was so so nice. The roof terrace is perfect to watch the sunset, the rooms are comfy and clean and there are some decent communal spaces to hang out in. Would totally stay here again.

    Staff was super accommodating and welcoming. Breakfast was lacking and bathrooms got a little grimy by the end of the day but beds were super comfy! It's also in an ideal location--walkable to most things but away from too much bustle.

    The facilities are fairly no-frills (seems like an older building), but what this place lacks in style, it more than makes up for with a great location, super-friendly staff, and a quiet but enjoyable common area/bar.

    Hostel in a great location 5-10 minutes walking to main plaza. Staff let us check in early at 9am when we’d just arrived from night bus. Showers are temperamental and can run cold in the morning as they’re solar panelled. Breakfast is very basic just bread and butter so we ended up skipping breakfast each day. Beds not the comfiest but good value for the price. Staff very friendly and hostel clean and tidy with nice little common area and really good wifi

    Overall enjoyed our stay, a nice quiet hostel to relax in but still has bar and common area for socialising. Not far from the main plaza and near a lot of nice cafes which was a bonus. Roof terrace and kitchen were great. Main big negative was the cold shower no matter what time of day which wasnt pleasant! Other than that would definitely recommend.

    Cute little hostel but unfortunately there was noisy construction going on next door while I was there so I decided to switch hostels. Breakfast was decent, nice little rooftop with a view on the city.

    The plugs in the four share private room did not work very well and the floor in the same room seemed like it was going to give way every time we walked on it. There was also no storage lockers in the room, which we didn't realise before arriving (our fault). We visited in April and the blankets provided were not thick enough; we slept in jumpers. However, the staff were kind and helpful and a basic breakfast was provided. The hostel seems to be on one of the main locally used roads. 6/10
