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: This is the best hostel I've at which I have ever stayed. The showers are hot, the beds are comfy, the staff are mostly friendly and helpful, the location is ideal, the property is gorgeous, the food and drinks are affordable and tasty, the kitchen is user-friendly, the bar is large and welcoming, and the computer room/lounge is extremely comfortable. I met a great group of people and ended up staying several extra days, as well as finding a travel buddy for the next leg of my trip. Couldn't have asked for better.

Disliked: The wi-fi was patchy at first, but it greatly improved. I think they were performing maintenance. Oh, and I hate having to wear a bracelet, but I guess it's for security.

Liked: Excelent hostel!

Disliked: É uma casa colonial, há muitos rangidos. Quando as pessoas andam ou abrem portas e armários, isso faz muito barulho. O isolamento acustico do bar a noite é muito ruim.

Liked: Lively and busy hostel, so lots going on, but the dorms are pretty quiet, so the bar and common rooms don't disturb your sleep. Good shower (in female ensuite dorm) and really comfy beds, with warm, cosy duvets.

Disliked: Wi-fi internet access very temperemental, and not enough permanent PCs given the number of people staying - this may be to do with the fact that the lounge is being re-furbed.

Liked: Great lively bar and amazing location for a decent price (especially considering its the tourist capital of Peru, maybe even South America)

Disliked: It's not very comfy and the basic dorms are giant (14 beds) so considering its size the place loses its personal appeal. On the other hand, due to its popularity and size its also easy to meet a ton of people.

Liked: Great vibe, massive and super comfy beds and duvets. Really helpful staff too. Amazing to have power points in the lockers in rooms too so you can securely charge your camera/phone etc.

Disliked: Would have been better if the wifi were more accessible throughout the hostel. Its on the pricier end too.
