    Very comfortable and great staff. Good wifi and safe setting. Loud trucks outside during the day, but during the night was quiet. Breakfast was not as good as I thought it would be, but there is cute coffee shop around the corner for another option. Staff was really friendly too!

    My wife and I had a terrific stay at Icthus and in fact extended our stay twice because we were having such a great time. The price for a private room/bathroom is incredibly cheap yet the rooms are perfectly clean, charmingly decorated, and with plenty of light. The porch swing in the outdoor common area/courtyard is a really pleasant place to hang out. Most of all, the family of four who owns and operates Icthus are unusually warm, friendly, and helpful, making us feel almost like family.

    There is no air conditioning in the rooms. It’s cool enough at night where it isn’t a problem but it is an absolute hot box during the day. Hot showers, no communal kitchen.

    I think it might be the cheapest dorm in Paracas. They cleaned the place every day. Very clean. But There is weird smell in the room. There is no table in the room or no indoor area with tables. My laptop and phones got sands in 10 mins. There is no 24 hours of reception so you need to be aware of this. There is no kitchen or boiler. This would be a bit inconvenience.

    Very Good

    Really nice place! But had a problem with a few things like having to ask someone to get your own things from the fridge and put it back (not allowed in the kitchen) despite being 'self catering'. Also a woman just walked into our locked room without knocking in the morning. Had our laundry given back to us damp. However, it was a nice and quiet place to stay and the staff are really friendly so I would stay again.

    Good enough, staff are local family who hang out in yard. No social atmosphere to speak off but room is clean. There are NO self catering facilities so this needs updating

    we only stayed for one night, the room was ok but it smelt a bit bad - like cat pee or mold i don't know which one. the staff was nice and they let us use the kitchen i don't know if we were allowed or not but that was appreciated. There was no one in the hostel. The room was also really hot so it was nice to have the fan but not enough.

    We booked 1 night through the website for this hostel in Paracas. When we arrive they do not have a room for us, even though we had booked in advance. The mother who owns the hostel was very rude and had to tell a lie about why we could not get the room, which we did not buy. (She had overbooked the room) She then made another solution and got us over to another hostel (Costa Rica) - which was a super nice place! She demanded more money from us and it was generally an unpleasant experience.

    The place seemed very disgusting and insecure. Everything in the room smelled like it was covered in mildew. Room was incredibly hot and mildew found on mattress wen I checked for bed bugs. I would absolutely not recommend this hostel
