Aengus Gormley thinks…

"Nice, secure hostel with good dorms - there are plug sockets inside the lockers which is a big plus. Nice terrace upstairs with a bar and a table tennis table. Bathrooms are excellent."

Liked: The bar was a great place to hang out and the food was great as well, definitely get a milkshake! Be prepared to meet a lot of great people in an amazing atmosphere!

Disliked: The hostel is all open concept which is really cool until it's night time and it gets really cold, definitely bring some warm clothes and be prepared for a cold bathroom since the door is always open.

Liked: Free breakfast, plenty of showers, tours desk, bar, free movies room, free wifi, good clean bedding, airport pick up service and other taxis can be arranged, pretty building with a good atmosphere.

Disliked: Quite noisy, either from music or from the walls shaking (a lot) as people walk through the corridor, I don´t know why but it really echoed when staying upstairs, like elephants were walking in them, lol. No wifi in the rooms, but could not be helped due to the style of the building. I would and did stay here more than once, 4 times in fact.

Liked: It is really close to the main square without being really expensive. It also has a lot of activitives on offer. The beds are really good quality, almost like a double size and really comfy.

Disliked: It is a big hostel so I think it would be better for groups, but not so good for lone travellers as it makes it harder to meet people. Alot of people stay here before going on the Inca Trail so expect to be woken up at 5am quite a bit.

Liked: The building itself is beautiful and it does have a lot of character, the breakfast is better than a lot of others with fresh rolls and alittle oven provided to heat the rolls, also has fresh coffee which is lovely

Disliked: The kitchen facilities are poor and no tea towels provided so even if you wanted to dry your dishes and put them away you cant so with the results everyone just leaves all the dishes all piled up to dry.

Liked: This is a well run party hostel, def more suited to young singles looking to hook up with other travellers. It has all the activities you could want laid out on a plate and the staff are super chilled and friendly.

Disliked: This prob was the wrong hostel for me and my boyfriend - just too big, way too many people - the turnover of guests is crazy and you never see the same people twice. Try not to stay in Inti Raimi (closest to the bar, which despite rumours to the contrary, is not soundproof) if you need to sleep to get up early for any of the activities. Also the kitchen is ridiculously small given the number of people trying to use it. Don't expect to cook there if you want to enjoy your evenings.

Liked: Bathrooms were ALWAYS clean, morning to night. Great menu at the bar; if you want the dinner special, order quickly because sometimes they run out of the special.

Disliked: can get a bit noisy on some nights because people leave the door to the bar open
