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

We were a group of 11 people who stayed a night in this hostel. We all enjoyed our stay very much. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and same goes for the bathrooms. The owner, Alberto is lovely. He explained to us about the tours and the food etc and had excellent recommendations on what to do, where to eat... More

it's clean, cheap and well located (although not hard, because Paracas is pretty small). We booked both tours (Paracas National Reserve and Islas Ballestas) via Alberto and had a great time. The price was totally ok, you even get a discount if you book both tours. Whats not so great is that there is no breakfast offered and that the... More

PBH is in a great location just a block from the beach but what makes this hostel special are the owners Alberto and Lidia. They go out of their way to make you feel welcome from the minute you arrive and even invited us to Albertos birthday party! Would really recommend this hostel to anyone coming to Paracas as there...
