Liked: Breakfast was pretty good, enough fresh bread and jam to fill us up and a fresh juice or banana smoothie to go with it. The staff were very friendly and helpful, they also had a lot of knowledge of bus time tables and were able to help us figure out how to get to Copacabana in one day.

Disliked: As mentioned by other people they price on hostelbookers is lower than the price they try to charge (it's about 7% higher). We refused to pay the extra and I suggest you do the same. The bathroom was outside and upstairs from our room, it was pretty inconvenient so I'd suggest paying extra for an ensuite.

Liked: Tasteful decoration, large room and ensuite. Friendly staff, English spoken by some. Hot water for shower.

Disliked: Described as being 3 blocks from Plaza de Armas. Whilst it is still easily walkable, it is actualy 8-10 blocks away. Googlemaps also has it in the wrong place. Not a huge problem, but not nice to find when you are carrying 20kg backpacks each and have been on a bus for 6 hours. Otherwise was a lovely place to stay.

Liked: The staff was very helpful & nice we booked a tour to Colca Canyon with the hostel and it was very good and well priced. They also arranged delivery for our backpacks on the last day of the trek.

Disliked: We arrived to the hostel at 1am and we rang the doorbell for 30 minutes before someone came to open the door for us... Our room was located just above the road so it was very noisy (we slept with earplugs). Doorbell is very loud and you hear it all around the hostel.

Liked: Friendly staff, they speak English well and if not, Google Translate is used to help you anyway. They can advise you on trips or activities in the area. Roof terrace is very nice, breakfast was good. We were still allowed to take a shower before we left in the evening, even though we had already checked out in the morning.

Disliked: Loes left no negative feedback.

Liked: It wasn't too far away from the Plaza de Armas, and it was very close to Parque Selva Alegria. The breakfast on the terrace was nice; you had great views of Misti. Marlon's Travel booked the ColcaCanyon tour for me at the going rate - S 135 and stored my luggage for free while I was gone. The room I stayed in was basic, but clean.

Disliked: The bathrooms were a bit small and could have used some soap.

Liked: Staff is great, very helpful. And the beds.. Amazing, slept like a baby (although the across the street living dog would not be silence). Mattresses were splendid. Breakfast good with enough rolls and fresh juice.

Disliked: The kitchen really needs a make over. It's located on the roof and the water is outside the kitchen and its 'mucho friyo'. There is no hot or warm water to do the dishes and frankly, that is pretty unhygienic. The use the same plates for breakfast.
