They need some serious improvements in this hostel. It's in a good central location close to everything you need, showers are good, some staff could speak English, they have a balcony area on the rooftop...and that's pretty much all positive about this place, everything else is seriously unacceptable. Rooms are not clean, sheets and pillows smell mouldy, broken power points... More

I book ths hostal in advance by internet. The room on the photo look nice: clean, enough space, double bed, good bathroom. When I arrived I must wait a couple of hours before I got the room. My room was very small with 1 etage bed. The room was dark, dirty and no good smell, not really hot water. Wifi... More

First the pictures shown on Internet the reality was quite different.Rooms have ciment floors and the shower was not working properly. They have a decent price including breakfast but two white bread buns and a little bit of butter and strawberry jam every single morning is not the type of breakfast I expected. When I asked for more coffee the... More

I stayed there four nights, I had to pay for a double room the first night , because "suddenly there was no single room". OK, I can try to accept that. Old sheets, no towels, dirty room, no WiFi in my room, OK, I can accept that ( it's a cheap hotel). But, I really lost my mind when I... More

We stayed here for our first time in Peru. Its a bit difficult to find on the main street, as its only a small door leading up to the stairs. Its not a great place to stay, rooms are a bit weird. Our room was right beside the main living room, everyone would sit here for wifi access. The room... More

I'm a big fan of this hostel! Good kitchen, very affordable, great location, and comfortable! I've stayed there a couple times, and like it better than other more expensive options in the area. The online booking system can be hit or miss so maybe try to give them a call if you want to make a reservation.

The hotel location is very convinient, the price/value is reasonable. We've booked a 4pax room and it was quite spacieus. The bathroom window was towards another room which was weird but we've had a good night sleep. Which is more then enough.

We arrived at the hostel after a tiring journey from Cusco and were craving for some rest an a shower. But when we arrived, the lady at the reception couldn't find our booking. After checking several folders she called the boss Ricardo, who said that he mixed up the reservation and that the hostel is full. They called one other,... More
