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

Wasn't what I expected after reading the reviews on here. Hostel was dark, gloomy and depressing with no atmosphere. Bathrooms were clearly not being looked after as I had to ask for toilet roll every time I went. The bedrooms were notcomfortable. Breakfasts were the most basic I have had in my 3 months travelling round South America so far.... More

We stayed here for one night. The staff are nice and helpful. However, the showers do have not hot water, the floors are conrete and the rooms feel really cold and bare. It looks like many the positive 5* reviews are from tripadvisor users with only 1-2 reviews. Sounds dodgy. Are these even real reviews? I'll let you be the... More

Nice place. nice rooms and espacially nice staff which always answer your questions with a smile. We got really good recommodations for restaurants. The hostel is about 5-10 minutes away from Plaza del Armas and close to the river. The house is a fine old house which reminds a bit on an Escher-drawing. The rooms situated in different levels around... More
