Average breakfast - bread rolls, fruit juice and tea/coffee. Great staff - they helped book our trip to Colca Canyon and kept our luggage for the three days. Excellent wifi.

Not only were they friendly, but very helpful as well. A few weeks back the sole of my hiking boot was destroyed and despite the many shoe...

This is so much more than an ordinary hostel. The family who runs it were amazing to us, taking so much care to ensure we had information and comfort. Spacious, cosy and very central. The breakfast was fabulous too! We even had space to do our morning yoga practice with a view of the volcano.
