Even for the most basic accommodations, you need some hot water and functioning toilets. This place didn't have either for the 3 days we stayed here. Disgusting especially w so many people sharing. They still charge full rates even w no plumbing!

1900 was very accommodating, with good links to safe and well known services such as Cruz Del Sur buses, tour guides, airport transfers etc. the room was basic but very clean and worth the price tag. We stayed in the private double room, but the shared rooms looked nice too. The showers were very nice also. The receptionist was very... More

We just loved this place! This hostel is situated in a beautiful colonial building and when you enter this place, the impressive hallway with the colonial staircase brings you to the first floor were everything happens. The rooms have impressive high ceilings, beautiful tiled floors and everywhere you'll see the old windows and doors. We slept in the biggest room... More

We just had a shower, stored the backpacks for the day and had some beers before heading north. The staff was helpful, the place is very well located and the common showers were clean enough. They charged us around 20 soles for the shower - a bit too much but we asked around and this was the only hostel that... More

Terrible. So noisy. Expensive for what you get. Dirty beds. Would not recommend my worst enemy to stay here. The 14 man room doesnt even have a door that works and it backs onto the lobby with holes in the walls. Bed wasnt properly made. Had to py up front and no chance of money back,

The hostel staff were friendly and helpful, and we went on a free walking tour through the hostel which was a really... More
