Had a great stay at Marlon's House! The staff were all wonderfully friendly and helpful. Rooms and beds were all clean and comfortable and there's a nice kitchen to cook meals. Had a nice breakfast as we'll - yoghurt, cereal, fruit, juice, bread, meat, cheese, and usually fried potato dish. Also enjoyed relaxing in the sun on the rooftop terrace.... More

We stayed here twice and had a good time both times. The double rooms are spacious and clean. Beds are comfortable. The staff was friendly and even willing to help when we left at 3am on a tour. Breakfast was nice as well!

Staff were friendly and helpful, I had a dorm room which had 5 beds and I basically had a room to my self apart from one night. Rooftop is great but I'd recommend a sun lounger to... More

All the rooms are centered around common areas, so it is very noisy. Location is great. For 3 soles, you can order eggs or a banana pancake for breakfast. Also they do laundry for cheap. Many of the dorms don't have bunk beds, which is nice for a hostel to have so much space. The bathrooms kind of always smell... More

Felt like a paycheck here. The bathroom situation is scarce with one shower or an entire floor. You have to pay for a towel. No a fan that I have to press a button for entry or exit every time. Staff is stand offish and only recommends the most touristy places. A towel costs $3.

“Staying in a private room for two was very good value - though it seems to be much more expensive than dorms they kept offering us discounts as we stayed in several Marlon's Houses.”

“We stayed in the room,102 on the first day which was a 5 bed dorm and has the window to the street. We had a circus outside that evening,so it's a bit noisy,but we could easily sleep. The second night we had a double room which has the window to the common area so you can hear the TV but again,it didn't cause any problem.”

“Avoid the 2 first floor rooms at the front without bathroom. These are adjoining and noise from next room can be intrusive.”
