Ronnie Hansen thinks…

"Great location, two blocks from the main square, Plaza Vea around the corner, and not far from the markets. The rooms were clean and large and ours had a view of the mountains."

Romantic getaway

04 May 2014 Ronnie would recommend this property

Liked: Great location, two blocks from the main square, Plaza Vea around the corner, and not far from the markets. The rooms were clean and large and ours had a view of the mountains.

Disliked: They charge you more than what hostelbookers finally quote, and you have to pay to use the kitchen, s3 for microwave and s5 for gas, which they had run out of. Also they did not clean the room while we were in it.

Liked: It was close to the main square and supermarket. The rooms were clean.

Disliked: There was never anyone on reception to ask for advice/ help on the city. There was no laundry service despite stating so on hostelbookers which is the one thing we needed after doing the Inca trail. The rooms were not cleaned while we were there.

Liked: Cool hostel with a great roof deck and nice interior courtyard. They make you eggs for breakfast, and the staff is very nice, easy-going, friendly, and they speak English, as well. Great location just a 5 minute walk from the main plaza and all the attractions of AQP's old city. Highly recommend this hostel.

Disliked: The ONLY negative of this place is that the private bathrooms in the rooms are a bit wonky. They're not really separated from the rooms. There is a dividing wall, but it doesn't go to the roof, so its more of a "toilet and shower area" rather than an actual bathroom. Some may care about this, some may not, but it was worth mentioning.

Liked: The staff is really friendly and helpful. They help you to organise tours and cabs. The breakfast is good, you can have some eggs if you want. The dormitory is clean, the beds comfortable.

Disliked: There aren't lockers in the dormitory and the room door is open all the time. You can store your valuables in a locked room but then you have to ask for the key to open it all the time.

Liked: Lovely rambling old house with character and fantastic rooftop terrace with amazing views. Great location on a quiet street but only 10 minutes walk from the main square. Very friendly staff and clean and comfortable rooms.

Disliked: The walls are quite thin in the rooms so you can get disturbed by others. Breakfast could have been a bit more exciting.

Liked: The welcome was great. The patio inviting and there was always someone there to exchange information with. The owners could not do enough to help and often joined in for a chat. Great friendly atmosphere, excellent facilities, first class breakfast, the best hostel I have stayed in in my five weeks trip in Peru and Bolivia. And yes, the location if great too, safe and five minutes from the Plaza de Arms.

Disliked: Nothing.
