Muy buena experiencia, el staff esta simpáticas y lugar es cerca al centro. There is a climbing wall, also. It is located near La Soledad plaza. There are some shops and supermarkets near-by, as well. The patio is a nice place to unwind from climbs of from going on treks.

Stayed here between trekking/climbing. Definitely the place to stay if you are looking to link up with other climbers! Really relaxed and chill vibe and easy to meet people. I will stay here again next time I visit Huaraz.

I love this place, clean, cheap, super relaxed and you can practise your climbing on the climbing wall. They can arrange some great climbing tours for you. We recommend this to young people on budget, backpackers and climbers.

I remember I had a hard time getting a hold of them as well. Honestly, I wrote an email but also called a few times the numbers that are on the site. Sorry, I don't have a better answer. Good luck!
