This is quite a basic hostel, but worth staying for the price. We stayed in the 4 person room, which was adequate other than the fact that there were no outlets in the entire room so none of us could charge our phones.

Friendly hostel, nice staff. GREAT WIFI! :) breakfast pretty poor, but standard for Peru. Security not great - my iPhone charger was stolen from our room. All in all a decent hostel. Location a little out from the city centre but just a 10-15 minute walk.

Stayed here a few nights to relax after inca trail. Staff were great. Helpful with buses, laundry and staying extra nights at short notice. Breakfast is free with bread, jab and a good selection of teas. For a few soles more the nice breakfast lady will whip you up some eggs. Good bar too, although rather empty while we were... More

The staff were extremely helpful, the location is just superb and the rooms are clean and comfortable. It is almost in the middle town, just around the corner of Santa Catalina Convent(well worth a visit). It is a worthwhile place to look at staying. It is easy to get taxis to, everyone knows where it is, just by mentioning the... More

To all the dislikes of the bothy hostel, I just can say you must have been at the bothy during raining season were it can be wet and cloudy so you probably couldn´t enjoy the awesome terrace plus the amazing view. I had sunny days in the bothy and I loved the atmosphere. You cant find that anywhere else in... More
