This hostel was alright, the views upstairs were excellent, the breakfast was good, it was the service that was not great. The male service people at the front were quite helpful, however their English was limited (fair enough we were in Peru!), but I found the female workers to be a bit, almost rude, when we needed something. They were constantly running out of toilet paper and not keeping up with it, I received a few eye rolls when I had to ask for some more.
Likewise, it seemed the internet was constantly being used by the staff, again fine, but the eye rolls were back when I asked to use the internet (included in price).
I would definitely recommend that you stay at this place. I liked the look of the interior of the hostel, and it was a short distance from the plaza d'armas. Also very very close to Santa Teresa convent.
