Liked: Large, open courtyard. A delightful kitten to play with. Interesting architecture

Disliked: One bathroom for the entire hostel? No thank you! Not much of a hostel atmosphere. Airport pickup never showed.

Liked: Great atmosphere and location - love the San Blas neighbourhood! Also, the staff were *very* helpful and friendly - it felt like coming home :)

Disliked: Although there was internet, the connection was rather slow and I often opted to go to paid internet in the city. Also, while the showers offered hot water, it was either scalding or freezing - maybe a problem with the valves??

Liked: only stayed one night so hard to make a fair comment. place was very clean. lots of blankets on the beds and has lockers for the dormitory although outside the room. the courtyard is cute and a real sun trap.good value for money. not a party hostel. peaceful.

Disliked: not much atmosphere here. very quiet when we stayed.very slow wifi and internet. breakfast is standard peru although kind of poor with stale bread

Liked: Good location, beds were comfortable, breakfast was nice

Disliked: The staff were not interested in helping or in improving our stay. We made a booking at one of their hostels and they transferred us to another which did not have security lockers in the rooms. Incredibly loud music was pumping into our room from somewhere nearby - on Saturday night the music went on from 9pm until 06.40am. Water for the free tea was never hot. The kitchen was filthy with no cutlery and very few utensils. Our washing came back with four items bleached.
