    This place has a good location (few minutes walk from everything), nice beds and I really liked the whole chilled atmosphere there. Breakfast was cheap and just fine - fruit, youghurt and bread. The only thing I missed was aircon!

    Awesome, clean and chilled out place. Definitely not a party hostel but if you are a little sick of those and need something relaxed for what is likely one night in Paracas, then this place is really great.

    Presently surprised with Ichtus - clean and spacious and great value for money. Makes a perfect stopover between Huacachina and Lima.

    Rooms are basic but clean and comfortable. We stayed in a private ensuite room and the shower was great. Good location and the staff are friendly and helped us book our boat tour of the island. The only negative was that there is only one plug point in the room and with our adaptor could only have one thing charging at a time as we were told to keep the cable box plugged in even though there was no remote in the room.

    Hostel was clean and tidy with a nice outdoor seating area. Not much of an atmosphere, more like a hotel than hostel. Great location a 1min walk from the main strip. WiFi was not very good though didn’t work from the rooms

    Okay for the price but I found the shared bathrooms quite rough. There were two (toilet and shower in same bathroom) and one wouldnt lock (so one) and it wasnt very clean. Staff is friendly enough when asked for help but not much more than that. Atmosphere is more that of a cheap hotel than a backpackers hostel. Facilities in room were minimal, no garbage can, only one big bright light for the entire room. Breakfast was not great, would recommend just getting it in town if you have the time.

    Quadrupled their rates for Easter, so this review is based on that value for money (£56 for one night!!). Not a hostel IMO, hotel with common area. It might be an Ok private if it was normal price. Quiet place. However: Paper thin walls. Our our view out of our room of a brick wall was... great. Our shower faucet got stuck in the on position, causing much commotion. Sold water only, no bar. No smoking in the outside common area. Left for Kokopelli in the end, way more vibe.
