Stayed here with my girlfriend in February for nearly 2 weeks. This is a great hostel with nice spacious rooms and good facilities (Kitchen, TV, garden, fast WiFi, washing facilities). It is the perfect distance from the main plaza, just a 10 minute walk through a pleasant neighbourhood. Raul, the owner, is a great guy. He got us the cheapest... More

Mi Casa is a lovely, quiet and immaculate hostel in the district of Vallecito, a tranquil, upmarket area about 10 minutes from the centre. The owner is very helpful and knowledgeable about the area, and it has a nice old character to the building and good kitchen facilities

He was also rather negative about everything, the weather, laundry, safety, taxis which was rather... More

This is a very very clean, peaceful hostel. The owner, Alessandro, was really friendly, helpful and kind. He also speaks good English. It is very safe - we left our bags there while we went to culca canyon for two nights. It is in a safe neighbourhood about 15 minutes walk from the main square. There are shared and private... More
