Clean, and nice 👌🏼 near to the port and nice restaurants. Shopping center of artisanal clothing, jewelry, accessories. If you are a fan of artisanal jewelry near the hostel there ask for art creative Gonzales. You are going to love his work. The breakfast as included was consisted only of bread, strawberry jelly, coffee, tea and butter. Was kind of... More

Internet was spotty but 2 free computers were available. Manager left much to be desired. He spoke fluent French as did my travel companion. He explained the hotel price and the tours and services that were... More

The hotel was located in a good loction with easy access to bars, restaurants and boats. The breakfast was ok, if you aren't to hungry. The water pressure for the shower was very poor, hopefully they will sort this out. The rooms were small but clean.

This hostel delivers what is advertised. It's in a good location being close to the pier for a visit to the Ballestas Islands. It's a short drive to Paracas Nature Reserve. Our room was basic but comfortable. The reading lights did not work. The shower was ok. There is a roof top terrace where we sat and had a drink.... More

Stayed here one night and would look for somewhere else if I stayed in Paracas again. Can't seem to decide if it's a hostal o hotel but I'd say hostel. Small basic room, breakfast was lukewarm Nescaffe and 2 rolls, but no jam. Staff were a bit surely Does the job for one night.

We stayed here for 2 nights while in the paracas region, it was a very secure building, the staff were friendly, the room was clean. We had a few minor issues which was that you had to ring a door bell to get in where sometimes you were waiting a while, one day it was very noisy, there was building... More

Customer service is excellent. The desk manager is present at all hours offering assistance. Wi-fi connection proves better here than the rest of the town. Breakfast is basic but free. This location also seems very safe, manager keeps the door locked and has a guard during the night. If you arrive and the for is locked, ring the bell to... More
