    Great place to stay. It’s about a ten minute walk to the centre but it’s surrounded by the daily street markets in a really buzzy part of town. Booked for 4 days, stayed for 2 weeks as there is so much to do. Kitchen is great. For the price, I have no complaints whatsoever. Huaraz itself is pretty much unamericanised which is refreshing and a great place to buy genuine “the north fake” jackets etc. WiFi is strong depending on where you are in the hostel.

    This hostel is absolutely cute, way nicer than the pictures actually. Loved that it had a great kitchen and yard, was so easy to meet other travelers. Vincente is super supportive with booking tours, for the same price as somewhere else. Would stay here again!

    Staff were great with me, as they allowed me to check-in early when I arrived off a nightbus at 7am. Following a 4 day trek, they also allowed me to shower and hang out, before I left on a nightbus at 10pm.

    Super accommodating staff with our ever changing schedule and delays due to travelling during holiday season. Quiet area minus a few barking dogs. I liked the location but we had problems with getting to it, 3 taxi drivers refused to take us to the area when we showed it to them on the map (not sure why). You got what you needed at the price you pay. We stayed in a shared dorm, rooms were clean and very basic, toilet paper and wifi was provided. Again cant thank the staff enough, brilliant!

    Staff were lovely, and had a room to let us check in at 0930 after a night bus. Couldn’t work out the hot water. Breakfast was basic (bread, banana, jam, juice) but help yourself. Beds were warm, plenty of blankets.

    Pretty basic but good for the price. Kitchen was well equipped but shut one day meaning there was no breakfast available. Be careful walking to the hostel at night as dogs in the area are very aggressive.

    Below mediocre. The place was filthy, kitchen a mess. Staff seemed disinterested. Beds were uncomfortable and smelled bad. A lot of maintenance required for this old hostel.

    One of the worst hostels I've stayed at. They didn't have my reservation when I came in, forgot to give me my keys, the internet wasn't working, and outside at night there are aggressive dogs and someone during my stay got bit. If you do stay here, definitely take a cab to the hostel.
