Really enjoyed my stay at this hostel. Lovely staff and It was very clean and they left a clean towel and a little bar of soap in the rooms for guest. Kitchen is well equipped with a great blender! Less then 3 min from the beach.

Not one part of my stay in this hotel was enjoyable. When I checked in I asked for directions and the lady didn't understand me (this is fine, my fault as my Spanish isn't particularly great) and instead of leaving it as this she quite clearly went on to mock me with two other Spanish speaking guests. The room was... More

Rooms were standard and clean. We ended up staying for two nights because I wasn't feeling well, and the host was very accommodating. The Internet only works in the common areas, and the hosts are very busy - there's almost always a line if you need to talk to them/try to book something. No breakfast is included, but there is...

Paracas backpackers house is one of those places where you feel like being in a second home. The staff are very nice and cool! It is two block from everything. The private room was big enough (16~20m2), hot water, fair enough wifi, nice and comfortable bed. Of course not breakfast, but there are good and inexpensive options nearby. The first... More

The rooms were comfortable and clean. They leave towels and a small soap on the bed for you to use during your stay. I asked for an extra blanket and they were happy to give one to me. The staff was very helpful, even after our check-out. We checked out at noon but our bus didn't leave until 7pm, so... More

Close to the beach front and fairly close to the bus station with a nice feel. Still being built but wasn't loud. Wifi was good but didn't cover the whole hostel, didn't cover our room. No breakfast but they organised our ballestas islands tour which was very good and also sorted our bus to Huacachina. All in all it was... More

Warm staff, clean and in a good spot this place is aiiiiiiiiight. There are hammocks to chill in, and two cats who like cuddles. Cabbies honking their horns on the strip outside will drive you mad, ask for a room deeper in the back of the hostel.

Really nice owners, clean and cozy. Good bed and not too loud. Under construction to get bigger at the moment, but nothing that did disturb us during our visit. WiFi only good in common area. The kitchen is good. Has a good touristy life even during low season, even though most people only stay for a night. Good price.

The hostel is still under construction (as seems to be the case with most hostels in Paracas), however, the noise didn't bother us. Newly refurbished rooms, with big comfortable beds and nice showers... Good outdoor chill area with hammocks... Kitchen is basic but does the job... Will be a fantastic hostel when renovations are complete, but the real selling point... More

We had a nice stay here, there is construction going on, but it didn't bother us, only the rooms were a bit dusty. It was nice and quiet, with a great area for relaxing in hammocks, and just hanging out. The facilities such as the kitchen are basic, but worked well for us, especially for the price. The beds were... More
