Worst beds I have ever slept on and I have travelled extensively, literally just a peice of foam, you sink to the bottom on to the wooden planks underneath you and the rest of the foam envelops you in a sweaty mess.
Regularly there is no water, for hand washing, showers or toilet flushing - a fairly fundamental requirement in a hostel. If you stayed in a dorm of 8 and you share one bathroom that doesnt have a flushing toilet, you will be in a for a treat!
The most miserable English women works on reception, I am not sure if she is the manager but she was bizarrely unfriendly and unhelpful telling me it was her day off so she couldn't assist in getting me a locker key, which was in the drawer next to her and yelling for one of the Peruvian staff to assist.
Positives: Beautiful old house. Good location. Quiet. Peruvian staff are friendly. Communal areas are nice.
Overall, what I want from a hostel is a good night's sleep and a hot shower. Horrendous beds and no water did not meet this requirement, therefore I would never go back and would advise the hostel to invest in proper matresses and get the water problem sorted.
