Liked: The lay-out was cool: it´s all alcoves and balconies and staircases, kind of weird but definitely something different, which I liked. It was in a great location in the centre of town (on the street with a million opticians if you fancy a quick pair of glasses), and good value for money. My room was also airy and fresh, and the bathrooms were clean. It was fairly quiet as well, which is what I was looking for

Disliked: The staff (well, one of the women) wasn´t overly welcoming or helpful, not really telling me much or being very responsive. On the other hand, the other woman was helpful and woke up early to let me out

Liked: i thought what was best about the hostel was the price and the fact that it was so close to the center of town.

Disliked: the hostel is a little bit dirty and it could do with a few renovations but when you consider the price it is good value for money

Liked: The terrace has a nice veiw with a samll refrigerator to keep food cold. the rooms are spacious and our bed was better than most hostels. Staff is helpful and agreeable when asking to change rooms.

Disliked: No hot water: the showers are mainly cold, but get a little warmer in the afternoon. They rely on solar showers, which would be great if they worked properly. They do not have any way to heat food, no microwave. The walls in the rooms are crumbling and leave debri everywhere. Not all beds are comfortable, so ask to see the room first.

Liked: The cheapest place for private rooms I saw in Peru, even cheaper that other hostels dorms. Very good location, just 3 blocks from the main Square walking down the pedestrian street Mercaderes. Comfortable beds and clean bathrooms. Good value for money.
