I stayed in Estela de Oro from 4th to 8th August, 2013, for a Conference. The hotel was a very good surprise for me. Inspite being a hostal, it is very comfortable and worth every cent. The rooms are very clean, with privative bath, free wi-fi, and a LCD TV. The bathroom is not the best, but for the price,... More

Once we arrived, they had lost our reservation again and didn't have a room for us (we were 3 couples and they had 1 room ready, 1 room dirty and no room for my girlfriend and me). When we got back from El Colca, there weren't any rooms ready because they thought we... More

This hotel is good value for money but the pictures are very misleading; it is not as nice as the images make it look. It is a very basic hotel, the room was not cleaned throughout our stay, they did not even empty the toilet paper bin and we had to ask for more toilet paper. Some of the staff... More

Estela de Oro is two blocks from the main square (plaza de armas) of this interesting Peruvian city.. The hostel is spotlessly clean and extremely reasonable. I paid $16 for a private room with bath, wifi, and cable TV with many English channels. The posted tariff was $28 a night and it would be a good bargain at that rate.... More

Estela de Oro is an excellent value for the money. The staff is super friendly and helpful. They helped us (arranged taxi rides, store our luaggages for free, and gave us maps and directions) even before we actually booked to stay at the hotel. When we did stay, they threw in a complimentary airport transfer. Although the staff had assured... More
