    Great location right near the Plaza de Aramas. Friendly, English speaking owner who was very helpful. Not much hot water, but for the price, it is exactly what I expected.

    The beds were great, and the staff were super nice. The kitchen isn’t a lot, but it does the job. The bathrooms weren’t the nicest either. Overall good hostel, I’d stay again.

    very cheap but nice enough place. the price reflects the quality of the facilities (ie: very basic kitchen and cold showers etc), but we had a really spacious private room with a balcony that was lovely. the staff are friendly, and let us store our bags for free while we went on a three day trek. the location is also really good, and the bed was comfy.

    Very Good

    Best thing about this place is the price. If you want somewhere dirt cheap (34 soles per night for a double room) & don't mind it being rough around the edges you'll be ok here. Location is good too only 2 mins walk from main square. Staff are friendly but only the owner seemed to speak English. Rooms are very basic but clean & beds were comfortable enough. Good Wi-Fi & hot showers too (surprising for Peru!) No common areas as such but there is a small rooftop that serves as a smoking area.
