The hostal was very nice and helpful. The rooms were charming and spacious. The only problem was all the stairs to get to the hostal. After a long day out touring that was the last thing I wanted to do was climb those stairs but other than that I wold definitely recommend this Hostal.

My friends and I stayed in the quad room. The room was nice and cozy and the beds were comfortable. The staff was friendly and the breakfast was yummy!!!

Our party of four stayed here for ten days and couldn't have been more satisfied.

They stored our bags for the two days we went to Machu Picchu. The 45 steps can be daunting... More

We stayed in this hotel for over a week when we lost our Visa and had to wait until a new one arrived. After some of the hotels we stayed in through South America we were happy to wait in such a friendly, comfortable place. The staff are all very friendly and speak excellent English. The breakfasts were good, the... More

I found this place through the recommendation of a friend. Wonderful little inn with charm. Friendly staff. Free airport pick up! My room was great, not your cookie cutter hotel room. Breakfast was perfect and served in a room overlooking the mountains. Fresh squeezed OJ and fresh made blueberry jam. EXCELLENT value!!!

I stayed here with my partner and two friends on our month long trip through Peru. This by far stood out as the most memorable of places we stayed at.
