This is a great budget option in Paracas. The staff were awesome and friendly and organized our tours for us. The room was very clean and comfortable with hot water and tv. Very good value especially as town only seems to have very high end or low end accommodation to offer - this was perfect. No breakfast but there is... More

This hostal is a decent budget option, particularly good for backpackers. The owner is very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, the rooms are just Ok, and hot shower is very unreliable. Free wifi, but only reliable near the entrance. A good choice if you are a backpacker with limited means, but not appropriate for other travellers.

I stayed here 2 nights. I had booked my room directly at the hostel. Alberto is very friendly and helpful. He gave me tips on how to get to the hostel and a map with directions. I also booked my boat trip to Islas Ballestas with the hostel. Prices are about the same as anywhere else in Paracas. The hostel... More

Good budget option when you visit Paracas, We stayed for one night in one of the apartments with private bathroom. Currently they are adding more and there's some other building work going on next door. The island tour booked by Alberto was great and he's a very friendly and helpful host. I liked Paracas too, a sleepy little tourist village... More

We spent two nights in a double room with private bathroom. Room was spotless (impressive with all the sand), comfortable, with a good shower. There was a kitchen available, and nice communal area with hammocks. WiFi was fine, faster if not in your room. The owner was really helpful and very approachable, and we enjoyed the island tour that we... More

We stayed three nights here in a private double plus bathroom. The welcome was great and the place just exudes an atmosphere of friendliness. Our room was clean, decent sized with a comfy bed and storage space plus television. The bathroom was clean and the shower was warm and powerful. Wi-fi coverage was good, the odd dip in service but... More

So comfy if slightly noisy sometimes. Clean shared toilets and showers, lovely hammock area and friendly alberto gives the place a warm vibe (although his knowledge is a little skew on local restaurants etc). Well equiped shared kitchen!

My fiancé and I stayed at Paracas Backpackers' House May 2014 and were mostly pleased with our experience. The owners are very friendly and speak some English and can organize your tour of Ballestas Islands and Paracas National Reserve as well as a shuttle when you leave. The wifi was rather slow but did work and there was a nice... More

A group of 5 of us stayed in the 8 bed dorm right at the top of the hostel. When we arrived we were made to feel welcome straight away, as we travelled past all the rooms we felt hopeful that we would have a lovely room, however we kept going up and up, up past the washing lines on... More

Stayed here overnight to see the Ballestas Islands and National Reserve and was thoroughly impressed by the service and care that went into our stay. The best part of this entire place though is probably Alberto, the owner of the establishment. He was extremely helpful to us, helping us plan our activities in the area, transfers to other cities and... More
