We had a private room for 4 nights. We liked the room with its huge and comfortable bed a lot. Bathroom and shower (hot!) is good as well. You can also use the kitchen and in-house loundry service. Owner and staff are very friendly and helped a lot with DIY daytrips (eg. to Cajas). For breakfast we went to Nocallacta... More

We've stayed in this hostal for two nights in a room with a privat bathroom. The room (and bathroom) were cleaned daily. The hostal has a clean kitchen and the staff is very friendly. Only downside is the limitation in kitchen use after 7 p.m. The only reason we left is because we were looking for a place to stay... More

Stayed here for 5 nights, had a good room on the fourth floor (all those stairs!) with a little balcony and a shared (between three rooms) bathroom. Always spotlessly clean and for the most part very quiet. As other reviews have stated the walls are thin, and slightly strange glass doors, the sound does bounce up from the floors below,... More

We stayed here for a week, and had a wonderful time! The owners are very friendly, welcoming, helpful, and they speak English. No breakfast is provided, but real coffee from the owners farm is available anytime you want it. There are kitchen facilities available, but with all the great restaurant options within easy walking distance of the hostel, we only... More

Everything about this hostel in regards to staff and cleanliness were exceptional. However, my only complaint is that the walls were PAPER THIN and when you have the light on in the room, due to the thin glass of both doors, you can see right into the room. This however, is not always a problem depending on which room you... More

We throughly enjoyed our long stay and I can’t think of one item I wouldn’t put in the Excellent category. The Proprietors, Celso and his wife Maggie, are as hospitable is it gets. As mentioned in other reviews, they speak terrific English, which I am sure came from their time spent in the U.S. The staff couldn’t be friendlier, are... More

The owner and his wife were very welcoming and concerned about the the wellbeing of their customers. I was especially impressed how they took care of an aged American who seemed to be quite lost. The room was adequate for the price I paid and I spent some restful days at the hostel. The owner gave good advise on a... More
