Helpful trip organiser - there for one hour a day
Unfortunately the owner and his family spoke no English and were extremely rude when they realised that we spoke no Spanish, he knew the words 'pay' and room' so would aggresively say those when he wanted his money!
Entering the hostel proved difficult! There was often noone at reception so you could be left ringing the doorbell for 5/10 mins which late at night a a female traveller is not comforting!
Beware of the leaking showers! Taking a shower (which to the hostels credit were lovely and warm!)for more than 2 or 3 minutes could leave you with an ocean in your bathroom/room!
Unfortunately we found the entire experience at Pirwa Park/Posada del Parque (apart from the trip to the Colca Canyon) a negative and rude experience and will not be recommending this hostel.
