    Great location sandwiched between the oldest area (home to cool eateries and craft breweries) and the main historic area (mainstream going out and restaurants). The team at Econunay are awesome - very friendly and helpful... They also build a good community vibe and provide means for travellers to meet each other. The hostel is clean, safe and easy... what more could you want? I ended up extending my stay twice!

    Had a great stay at Econunay! Staff were all really friendly. Shoutout to staff members for being calm and helping me book a taxi to the terrapuerto on very short notice after I realized that I had missed the bus. Overall great hotel. Would recommend!

    Pretty central location so I wouldn't recommend it for someone who is seeking a quiet stay because you can hear the noisy cars all night long. The atmosphere is amazing and the staff was great. I would suggest though that the would have to change the mattresses eventually.

    The hostel staff is super nice and friendly. There is no question about the town and area that those guys cannot answer :) I would definitely stay again.

    Staff are so kind and helpful. It creates such a homey atmosphere. Me and a few girlfriends travelled here and stayed a week! Location is great. Breakfast is simple but it’s what you get almost anywhere in Peru. Would recommend and I really enjoyed my stay here.

    Breakfast was good but overall I didn’t feel the vibe here. There were always people smoking in the patio area of the hostel, including staff and the smell travels everywhere - including the rooms. You'll be lucky to get a warm shower here cause they use solar panels to heat the water and there is never enough hot water. Pay 1 or 2 more dollars to stay elsewhere if you prefer a smoke free environment and hot showers. I stayed up the street at Selina for more or less the same price.
