We stayed here for three nights in early June. The hostel is a short walk to the main square and not at all unsafe feeling. We found our room pleasant but our shower didn't work well but this, we found, was a general issue in Peru. The Wifi didn't work in our room but we had no problems in the common area. We highly recommend the City Tour offered by the hostel, it had a lot of interesting sightseeing and provided a chance to get out of the city. We would definitely stay here again!

Great place, walking distance from the main square. Staff worked hard to help me with anything I asked. Hot shower!

HI Hostels are quite variable in quality across south america but the Hostal Mallqui is easily one of the very best, along with the Singing Lamb in Puerto Natales. The dorms are very spacious and you could even say well-appointed, and the common areas are nice too. The best aspect by far are the excellent staff - Alfredo and Milagros in particular were extremely helpful and they made the hostel such a great place to stay for me; my only slight quibble is having to pay to use the kitchen - weird.
