“It was good enough”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2008

The hostel was clean. Rooms are basic and have cable tv but are dimly lit. There was 24 hrs hot water. No internet and no breakfast included. For the price (50 soles for a private double) you can get a hostel which offers internet with similar rooms.

Its probably better to stay in paracas than in pisco for 2 reasons:

1. The ballestas cruises leave from paracas so you would have to take an early morning bus / taxi into paracas anyways.

2. Pisco has been flattened by an earthqauke. There is not much happening there and its still being reconstructed.
