Pleasant and comfortable, and at US$12.50 per night, you can't argue about the value. The staff are helpful and friendly and the cheerful breakfast lady gets you sorted for the day. I managed without any extra heating (although altitude was a bit of a problem). It lies about half-way between the city centre and the port; if you don't want... More

We only stayed here one night and it was just right for that. The rooms are ok, beds are comfortable and warm and the wifi works very good. When we arrived, they already gave us information how to get to the Urus cheap (without a tour, but you can also book a tour with them if you like) and where... More

We arrived at 5am and stayed for two nights. A tricycle taxi from outside the bus terminal cost 3 Bolivianos. The staff are friendly and helpful (though not much English spoken), and take pride in the cleanliness of the place. Pleasant atmosphere with well maintained garden. Good place for a short stay (I doubt many have reason to stay for... More

Its just what you need to spend a night in Puno. Puno is not a particularly charming place, so to find this hostel was a nice surprise. Its close to the port, so its quite handy for when you need to be at 7am to get the boat to the floating islands and Taquile, and also walking distance from terminal... More

We got a taxi from the station to El Manzano for s./5 it´s only a short ride away. Its close to the port away form the main square but this wasn´t a problem. The entrance isn´t obvious as it´s a small doorway in a long street, but our taxi driver knew where it was. We booked a double room with... More

It's location is not a problem. The street outside is grubby, but most of Puno is. The staff are friendly and helpful; however, they might come off as being inattentive as they are so laid back. The room was exceedingly good value at the price I found online. There is working wifi, and the shared bathrooms use solar-heated water. Breakfast... More

We walked to El Manzano shortly after sunrise from the bus station. It was an easy walk, but be sure to not expect street signs when planning your route. El Manzano looked as we expected. The rooms are situated around an interior courtyard. We got a twin room on the first floor with a shelf, and a shared bathroom in... More
