After making a reservation enquiry three days in advance, I had no reply from the hostel. I phoned them the day before we arrived to be told we were on a 'waiting list'. We were to remain on this waiting list for a while, even when we had a room! The first night we stayed in a double room, which was nice, clean and had a good shower and bathroom. However, when we enquired about extending our stay and the 'waiting list', the staff treated us as if we were a massive inconvenience, and told us to come back in an hour, when we would come back, we'd be told the same thing again. Very rude and unhelpful.
When we arrived back from Machu Picchu, after being told we'd "probably" have a private room, we were put in a 12 bed dorm. This normally wouldn't be a problem, but the dorm we were in was filthy. It stank, and there was rubbish and dirty clothes and underwear all over the floor. The next day we checked out and moved to Intiq Samana, just down the road, which was much nicer and far more welcoming, and it meant we didn't have to climb the horrible steps up the road to Loki!
Loki has a nice bar which does good food, and this seems to attract a lot of 19-21 year old backpackers who want to party, but there's plenty of bars and nightlife in the town, so no need to stay here.
