The place is nice, with a great diversity of spaces. Bedrooms are large, with confortable beds and spacious lockers. Bathrooms are also large, clean during the days, and dirty at nights, specially after the parties. Bad internet. About the staff... they are not prepared to manage a hostel. They're not polite, not helpful, and one of the guys made some... More

There was some work being done out front when we arrived, so it was a bit of a mess. It took a while for someone to get us checked in and to our rooms. The room for four is extremely small, do not expect to be able to walk around at the same time as anyone else. Our room was... More

Good atmosphere, lots of beds so lots of people to meet. Most of the staff are nice and join in with the fun, they gave us free shots when we were chatting to them at the bar. The bar is very loud and if you want an early night this is the wrong place to do so on the flip... More

on arrival, the reception was being refurbed so everything was everywhere and nobody seemed to know what they were doing. We were eventually showed to a room that smells like rotting wood, where there weren't enough lockers for the amount of beds. So they took us to another room where there was 3 lockers and 4 of us. My locker... More

The hostel was good, nothing spectacular, nothing bad. There was a serious problem however. I had tickets to wayna picchu and machu picchu but I didn't know much about how to get up there expect for a few forums I had read online. So I asked the guide at the hostel who they employ specifically for the purpose of advising... More

I stayed at the point about a year ago. apparently since then the management has changed. It seems like they are totally focused on the bottom line. Breakfast is mediocre, and they purposely make the drinks weak to save money on alchohal. The volunteer backpacker staff is great, but most of the guests switched to either Wildrover or Loki after...

Got in this hostel totally by coincidence and it was great. The staff working here is the best and nicest! The hostel has a garden and a lot of common space including a bar and play area. People do occasionally smoke in the main lobby but it isn't a big deal since the area is practically open air. The guy... More

By far the best hostel we went to in South America, this all thanks to the great crew. First of all the 2 lovely receptionist, Tamara and Liz. Both of them always smiling and willing to help you, not forgetting how hot they are :-D When you head to the bar, upstairs, you have another beautiful Turkish girl who is... More
