What was not to like. Friendly check in, good wi-fi, tranquil garden setting, comfortable bed, reasonable shower & basic breakfast offered free. We got there just before 8pm and if we were any later, I don't think we would have got in. The hostel is quite secure and all on ground floor inside walled compound.

We enjoyed our week here very much. The room was attractive and had a high ceiling. While not large, it was big enough and there was sufficient furniture on which to put things out. The bed was fairly comfortable for sleeping but not so good for sitting and leaning against the headboard; another pillow would have helped. Each room had... More

Loved this place....pretty much everything you could want for the price. Nice, big and clean rooms....friendly host and great location. Nice grounds and good wifi. We would stay here again for sure if we came back into town.... Breakfast was nice as well if you pay the extra $.50 for eggs

I have been staying at Le Rendezvous for over a month, from the end of February to April 5th. In this time, I have heard no mention nor have I seen any evidence of bedbugs. My feeling is that, for whatever reason, the previous review complaining of bedbugs was motivated by malice.

A very charming place at a very reasonable price. However none of this matters in any way. Bedbugs. This hostel left me in agony for the next week and at the end of the day, this is all I will take away from it. If you stay there, remember my warning. You will suffer the same fate as I did....

Upon walking into Le Rendez-Vous, you are instantly transported into a world of beautiful gardens, tranquility, and wonderful views. The park-like interior is exquisite, with meticulously cared for plants of many tropical varieties. Our room was good size, with a comfortable bed. The location on the edge of Vilcabamba is excellent. A short 5 minute walk to the town square... More

Beautiful garden with hummingbirds occasionally buzzing by, quiet rooms with comfy beds, nice breakfast with great coffee and homemade bed, friendly staff and informative owners, perfect location close to town and the river, decent value when compared to other places in vilca. Stay here!
