First off I thought the hostel had nice beds and was quite comfortable. Hot water. My problem was that I arrived at 5:30 in the morning and they charged me (without telling me) for the bed. This was the first hostel in Peru that did that. The hostel later said that check in was at ten, if they told me... More

Hostel with very nice and helpful staff, super comfortable beds (stayed in a 7 bed dorm), a pool table (in a room, that's a little too small for it ;), simple, but good breakfast (buns, butter, marmelade, tee (coca leaves, coca mate and others), koffee) and situated in the center of puno. By payment with credit card they charge another... More

The booking was very easy by phone and only two days before our arrival. The room was simple, but clean and we had enough blankets for the nights. We stayed two nights and booked a trip on the Titicaca lake via the hostel, which was a very nice adventure with a english speaking guide. The staff was very nice and... More

Our room, since we did not book ahead, was right off the noisy and cold common area. The blankets were very warm, but dirty. Bathrooms were clean. Common area is fun with pool table and bean bag chairs... also fast/reliable wifi. Included breakfast is very nice: coffee/tea, nice bread options, and an egg cooked how you want on the spot....

Firm mattresses, lots of blankets for keeping warm and wifi throughout hostel. The kitchen was excellent and by far the best I've come across in South America, for once the pans even had lids! Showers were hot and spotless. I particularly liked that there were a few different sitting areas that you could relax in. Staff excellent and more than... More

We booked to stay at Inka's Rest for 3 nights having read good reviews beforehand, but were disappointed. Initially we were fairly pleased, the beds are wide, warm, and comfy, and there is a good amount of communal space, including a TV with netflix which was a nice idea I hadn't come across before in a hostel. The staff were... More

Once I had found it down the small street, this was a really nice place to stay in Puno - clean and comfortable dorm rooms, warm showers, wifi that worked ok, friendly and helpful staff when it came to directions and booking a bus to Cuzco, decent breakfast, lockers and a very good backpacker atmosphere. I have only good things... More

Gilda is the queen bee of this unique little hideaway hostel down a little alley in 1st Quadrant in Puno. Taxi drivers from Juliaca don't find it easily but once you're here you're close to everything. The night I arrived I ate something awful and ended up so sick I had to cancel my two day trip the islands, but... More

One of the weirdest hostels I've stayed in - was very small and not many people! No locks on doors, you had to pull the string to open the door. I don't know if it didnt help that I didn't like puno itself! Other than that, the lady on reception was EXTREMELY helpful and lovely

This was one of only two hostels I stayed in while visiting Peru. While the accomodations are average, the staff ( and I believe owner) are fantastic, supportive and kind. They helped me plan a trip by public transport and although communication could have more easily occured in English, they let me practice my Spanish and facilitated my speaking as... More
