    Great very social but respectful hostel. The kitchen was well stocked but needs a knife sharpener!

    We had an amazing time in Huaraz thanks to Benjamin and the Akilpo crew. Always extremely knowledgeable and pointed us in the right direction for hikes. One of the better hostels we've stayed at in South America

    Hostel Akilpo was great. Lots of other travellers to meet and the staff is super friendly and helpful with everything. Hikes, random questions, and extending my stay. The only thing was that my room was across from a market that was a little noisy at night time (until about 11:30pm) but I only noticed it the first night. The other nights I slept right through it. I highly recommend this hostel!

    Perfect base for hiking. It was easy as a solo traveller to meet other people, particularly in the communal areas and kitchen. The staff had lots of information on local hikes and could book for a reasonable price. They weren’t flexible with me moving nights I had paid for to accommodate a hike, but did give me a discount when I got back. The hostel is family run and lots of bathrooms are currently under construction but hopefully this means they’ll be ready for use soon

    Amazing spot in the middle of Huarez! This place is a great base for anyone who wants to go trekking as well as meeting a ton of cool people. The rooms are really nice, with curtain enclosed single beds (if you choose the mixed dorms) with a lot of space for all your things. The staff is super friendly and helpful, always ready to give recommendations and tips, also in English! Showers are good and there's enough of them, there's almost hot water 24/7,but you can get unlucky in the afternoon

    The hostel was really good located. The bus station to the day-hikes was located just at the corner. The people that worked there were really friendly and helpful. The best thing about the hostel is the big chill out area. There are two kitchen where people cook and spend time together. These were also very clean and organized. The toilettes where ok as well as the shower. The only problem was our room because there weren’t any windows to the outside, so the air wasn’t that fresh.

    We had a nice stay at Akilpo. Close to the city centre and helpful with booking our Panorama tour. We booked a private room with double bed. The room was located between the main area and the hallway so with windows open you could hear everything, also the early tours. But with windows closed there was no fresh and cool air coming into the room so we didn't sleep that well.

    Overall, I would stay here again. Really nice hostel with super comfy beds, spacious dorm rooms, great kitchen/hangout spaces, and convenient location. Con: the showers dont work that well and it's really difficult to get hot water (not ideal after trekking). The showers are also really far away from some dorms.
