19 March 2012 Aisling would recommend this property

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: 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.
