My partner and I stayed her for 2 nights and did a day tour through the hostel (Islas Ballestas and the reserve). Alberto was quick to respond to emails and gave detail about how to find the hostel which was great! We paid s/. 45 per night for a double room shared bathroom. There seem to be construction going on... More

Lidia and Alberto were wonderfully warm hosts and run a great hostel. We rented a room with double beds in the front half of the hostel, and it was simple and clean. It's important to be a heavy sleeper, since the rooms in the front half of the hostel (the ones with shared bath) aren't soundproofed at all. A beautiful... More

First of all the staff is very friend full and kind! There is a chill out atmosphere in the hostel. Wifi works in the hostel. Has some nice hammocks to lay in. Located close to a small mall. If they improve a few small things it should be way better/a almost perfect hostel for the budget travel: - make lockers... More

This place was alright for a night. However, our room was right next to the kitchen and had people chatting in there until late. The room was small and basic but comfortable enough. The staff were very friendly and the location was decent.

We rented a double room with private bathroom in this hostel. The room was basic, but clean with good beds. Paracas is a small place, so it's close to the beach and the shopping area. The staff could be more helpful tho. Not too noisy in the common area - proper place for backpackers

The owner and other staff members here were very friendly, helpful and nice to chat to. The place itself is pretty central (town quite small), and the room spacious but simple (twin), with a bit of decor. Communal toilet and showers were clean and tidy, showers were pretty cold though. The exterior of the room was quite interesting, a little... More

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
