This is a Trusted Review. Why?
This place was weird . . . it looked as if it was an old school or something that was turned into a hostel. It was clean enough, and the bathroom was nice, but it was kind of creepy. The common area where the TV is located is a bit dingy, and the shower off of the common area was a bit awkward.
The best thing about this place was the banana crepes for breakfast.
This is a Trusted Review. Why?
Great service, nice rooms. We booked a great 3-day tour of the Colca Canyon. Close to the plaza de armas and the touristic centre. Recommended!
