Nice place, good atmosphere, shared bathrooms nice and clean, hot water 24\7. Staff friendly and helpful, good kitchen, good location, good WiFi connection. Only draw back is the paper thin walls. Whether this effects your stay depends on your neighbors; We slept the first night fine, although we could hear our neighbor snoring through the wall, hardly slept at all... More

The welcome you receive from Alberto and the advice on tours is second to none, this hostel does have a very homely feel as suggested by the name. That being said you get what you pay for. Our room was though possibly the worst they had to offer and we still stayed and were happy. The facilities are basic but... More

This hostel is clean, quiet at night, and reasonably priced. The owners are very nice and informative. The tours are reasonably prices. The isla tour was great, so i recommend it. Paracas is a great place to unwind.

Stay here - you will not be disappointed! We stayed here for 6 weeks and absolutely loved it. After trying 2 other hostels in Paracas we settled on this one. Friendly and helpful staff who go out of their way to make you comfortable, great facilities and rooms. Good shower pressure, quiet at night, Ballestas and reserve tours, bike rental... More

The welcome you get from Alberto is special and he makes you feel at home straight away. The hostel itself is what you pay for but its clean and comfortable and the showers are lovely and warm. There is also the use of a kitchen which has everything you need in it.The only problem we had was that our room... More

You have to make sure you are visiting the Paracas Backpackers house, as there are other ones with similar names. This is the original one! Simply ask for Alberto or Lidia to make sure you are on the right spot! They are both very friendly and helpful, as are the other ones of the staff. You can choose the upper... More

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
