Breakfast is perfunctory Vast majority of staff are awesome, let down by one who was definitely not at her best in the early am departure times, I would recommend sorting out bills etc with the day and afternoon staff....

Our family of 6 stayed here on two occasions as we traveled through Peru. We were given a dorm room on the bottom floor, which was very spacious and comfortable. The room had individual lockers for each of the six beds as well for those that might want to lock up their things. The owners are very relaxed, and we...

great hostel in the middle of the center. The stuff was amazing, although the kids were playing every morning in the sleeping area, so it was quiet loud in the morning. Breakfast was great and the price was for Peru not too bad. Definitly stay here again, when coming to this nice city
