15 August 2012 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Convenient location, helpful staff and overall kept up nicely.

Disliked: Doesn't live up to the same atmosphere as the Pirwa in Cuzco as it is much smaller and the decor more basic akin to a random hostel with not much character. But in my opinion minor details if you're just looking for an inexpensive, comfortable enough hostel.

Liked: El staff es muy amable y siempre dispuesto a ayudar.

Disliked: En nuestra habitación sólo funcionaba la lámpara de la mesilla y había poca luz. Las duchas compartidas para chicos y chicas son poco íntimas porque tienen una mámpara translúcida.

Liked: Miraflores is a good area - much quieter and less conjested than the centre. The hostel provides pick up from the airport ( for a reasonable rate) and helped us book our transportation to our next destination, making everything much easier than expected.

Disliked: Maybe we came at low season, but one night we were the only people staying in the hostel so it wasn't the beat place to meet people.
