Very friendly staff and very clean and there are hot showers which is a big plus. The private room we stayed in was spacious comfortable and we had a tely with hbo! Negatives are- the storage lockers are flimsy and not secure. Some of the rooms dont have door locks that work and the steps going up to the 2nd and 3rd floor are extremely slippy and should have some sort of grips on them such as a sandy paint. All in all we loved our stay and the location was brilliant and the stay was very cheap x

Muy buena disposición para ayudar e informar de la encargada Miriam. Pasé muy bien en una habitación individual sencilla pero cómoda con baño privado. Está muy bien ubicado. Los desayunos son muy básicos, pero me pasó en todos los lugares que estuve en Perú. El wi fi funcionaba muy bien en la habitación, que estaba al costado dela recepción. Lo recomendaría a gente que guste de viajar de forma sencilla y económica. Lo malo es que no siempre hubo agua caliente.
