About Inka's Rest

Inka's Rest is located in the centre of the city, opposite the church of La Merced, near the Central Market and the main railway station of Puno. Inka's Rest was recently renovated in 2014 with new mattresses and beds, cozy blankets, a new kitchen, and refreshed common areas. Most travellers come to Puno as a means to reach Lake Titicaca and visit the Inca ruins. Today, Puno is the capital of the Highlands region, a commercial border town across Lake Titicaca in Bolivia.

At Inka's Rest we have 10 years being the most awarded hostel in Puno. We have been recognized by Hostelbookers with Best Staff Award 2009, Best Value Award 2009, Best Cleanliness Award 2010, Best Staff Awatd 2011 and by Tripadvisor with Excellence Certificate 2012.

However, Puno has a wild, exuberant side. Throughout the year there are festivals of music and dance which fill the streets with people celebrating. The most popular of these festivals is the feast of the Virgen de la Candelaria in February with the famous Devil dancers.
