I stayed some days in this hostel because I went on a tour to the Ampato (6310m). The hostel is really central. You reach the plaza in 7 minutes. It is quiet and has a nice terrace where you can take breakfast. After breakfast we left for a 2 hour ride to Chivay for acclimatization. On the next day a jeep picked us up to drive us to the basecamp of the Ampato at 5060m. The following day, we climbed to the second camp at 5400m to start our attempt for the summit at 12 h midnight. The weather was perfect and I climbed with two guides, Alain Chacon Gonzaes y Hugo Gonzales Gonzales (Aspirantes de case de guias de Huaraz) who are really resposible and made the expedition save. I would always do a tour again with them; we had a lot of fun and reached the summit early in the morning. If you also want to do a tour like this or to other mountains, I can recommend Alain y Hugo highly.
