Liked: The staff was very friendly and helpfull, the hostel is very clean even the shared bathrooms, it has a cosy atmosphere!

Disliked: The only negative thing is that the building has a wood floor and if you are unlucky to have a downstairs bedroom (like me) you won´t sleep untill the guests upstairs go to bed!!

Customer review

13 December 2009

Liked: Came back from our 4 day Inca Trail to find that my backpack had been soaked in the storage room and they weren´t going to tell me, despite the bags being in a different room when I went to collect it. Books, ipod, shoes, etc were ruined. Manager was called and didn´t apologise for it, just kept asking me what I wanted him to do.

Liked: The views of the city from the hostel are really good. The free airport pick-up was done by a travel agent whose services you´re then free to use if you wish - he´s very good, helpful and not at all pushy with his services. His help was invaluable in getting some of our group visas back into Bolivia by calling in favours with some friends ... very helpful indeed!

Customer review

31 July 2009

Liked: Not much. The breakfast room, the computer room and the bedrooms are truly freezing cold. The staff couldn't understand their own computer booking system, and we had to change rooms each night when in fact beds were still free. They lost our reservations after returning from a trip, and acted like we had never called to rebook. Some people were sweet, but in the end no one had any idea what they were doing.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.
