    Loved my stay here. The hostel is rustic but charming and clean. The owner cannot do enough for you. The showers were the best I’ve had in Peru, the breakfast delicious and great value for money. The garden was lovely to chill out in and rest tired legs after trekking. Great location 4 minute walk from main plaza

    The hostel is not very crowded, rather a calm place to hang out than to meet tons of new people. The staff does not speak fluent english, however they will try to help you as much as they can. Breakfast is better than in other hostels. There is not always soap in the bathroom and once there was a rat running through the dining area. There are windows in the dorms which is good. Appearently there is no printer, so I had to print my bus ticket in a near tourist travel agency.

    The best part about this hostel is the large spacious garden which is perfect for relaxing in the sun! The rooms are basic, some of the showers are perfectly hot, some are cold. Make sure you get the right one! The staff are wonderful and always happy to help. Thanks for a great stay!!

    Really great staff and nice rooms with hot shower. There was no atmosphere as the hostel was pretty empty when we where there. But after the Colca canyon it was just what we needed. Free luggage storage and really nice outdoor space to relax in.

    Nice hostel, enjoyed the breakfast and table tennis. Were charged for storage without being informed of the charge before hand. A couple in a private room was comfortable but a bit damp and dark. Not great cleanliness.
