Although this place adjoins the bus station and a busy road, I heard neither. Modern bathrooms, great hot water. I'm not even interested in TV, but they reduced the price because the TV was out for repair. Five minute walk to the embarcadero and lots of restaurants and shops along the water. Estephany was so friendly and helpful; put me... More

Zarcillo Paradise is a Bed and Breakfast situated at the entrance of Paracas Town, and the reception also serves as the Cruz Del Sur Bus station. Boat trip to Ballestas Islands and Paracas Reserve Tour were the only activities I found interesting in Paracas - They can be done as a combined tour, between 7.30am and 4:30pm with any Tour...

The place is perfectly located right at the bus stop of cruz del sur. It allows you to shorten your stay by organizing everything with them. First the hotel is cheap, 50 soles for a 2 beds room, clean, the bathroom as well, and they give soap and towels. It has good wifi connection. Breakfast is Not included but is... More

The rooms are spacious and comfortable but a bit noisy from the main road just in front of the one we stayed. It has a big backyard where you can seat and chill out outside of the room. The bathrooms are okay, one day I had hot shower in the other freezing water - so not super reliable. The breakfast... More

The station/hostel has a "Cruz del Sur" storage for luggage and backpacks, when I left mine there for the duration of the Ballestas Islands tour, my kindle was stolen!!!! I noticed later in the afternoon when I opened my backpack, nobody... More

The room is good with enough space and 2 terraces. Hot water variable even with mixer, hard to have a correct shower. Wifi awful in room 10, be patient. The breakfast is not included. Staff not very efficient behind the counter.

Arrived here at about 6pm on a bus, just as the sun was setting. I didn't realise that the hostel was actually also the bus station! Rooms were large, if a little grubby. First time I used my sleeping bag liner on the tour. Shower was also a little grotty and water ran hot and cold. Close to the town... More
