    The hostel is located very close to the beach and to the bus stop coming from Lima, which made it very easy to find and to walk around the place. The staff, a family, really makes you feel at home and are very helpful. They helped us book a nice (and cheap) tour of both the Natural Reserve and Ballestas islands, the two main attractions of Paracas. The room was cozy and the beds were very comfortable, and the whole place was extremely clean, even when located next to a lot of sandy roads.

    Very friendly and helpful staff. The breakfast is really nice with a fruit Salat & eggs. I booked a private room and got a room with 4 beds in it but no bathroom which was a bit weird but at least I was alone in it so that’s okay.

    Located right off the Main Street, easy access to bus drop offs, restaurants, and beaches. WiFi is shaky. Staff speak mostly Spanish.

    Nice little hostel, more of a b&b style place than a hostel if im honest but the staff are lovely and it does its job as a bed to sleep in. Big big downside though is that the wifi is terrible. Like honestly AWFUL. If you need if you need atleast decently reliable internet during your stay than this is not your place because you're going to find yourself touring the town for a restaurant with wifi just so something will load!

    Location on edge of town but only 5 mins to anywhere. Area a bit grotty but don't think there is much better in town. Room (Private with ensuite) OK but only just. Basin tap half broken, shower rose sprayed water everywhere, but did get hot water after a few mins. Kitchen available but very small and with very limited resources. Breakfast was good (scrambled eggs and fruit platter) and quickly served. Value for money OK but have had better.

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

    There were no sockets or plugs in the rooms so I had to charge my phone in the common area. The kitchen facilities were quite poor and the kitchen was not fully enclosed. Also there was a bowl with rice and cooked meat left lying on top of the clean bowls that residents were to use.

    BEDBUGS!!My wife and i stayed here for 1 night. the location was good just off the main street (although the front resembled a building site) it was really clean with a lovely modern feel. Staying on the 3rd floor in a private room it was basic but did the job. Having been in the amazon for 3 days and not got biten once i was horrified to be woken multiple times (after having a good few piscos sours) by bites! These were clearly BEDBUGS!Checked out too early to sample breki
