We only booked for 3 nights but ended up staying for a week! Lovely big clean private rooms with hot water. Cooking area is small but basic. Lovely roof top terrace.

Great location, laidback staff and low-cost laundry service.

Located approx 10 minutes from the principal square. We arrived at 1am and someone was there to greet us. The owner help is set up a Colca Canyon 2-day trek which was exceptional and would always go out of her way to see that we were ok. The rooms are really spacious and we felt secure here. The view of the volcanoes isn&'t bad either from the rooftop! The kitchen isn&'t overly equipped, but we haven&'t come across many that are in South America! I&'d recommend it here!

We ended up staying an extra 3 nights here. The rooms are nice and also the water inside the shower is hot. Maria is great and also the atmosphere is really relaxed and quiet. There&s a great rooftop patio and straightforward cooking area to prepare meals. They also offer you a laundry washing service (3 sole per kg). It&s also really near to a lot of traveller sites.

Rooms were really massive with comfy beds. Nice courtyard and balcony location for sitting out inside the sun. Maria (owner) was extremely helpful both when booking our colca canyon tour and also helping us organise our bus to Cusco.

Maria and the rest of the employees were really nice and extremely helpful. Maria sorted us out on our tour of Colca Canyon and charged no commission (others on our tour payed over 100 soles extra when booking through their hostel), she also booked my bus ticket to Lima for an excellent price. Nice courtyard and roof terrace. Bathroom was kept clean.

Our room upstairs had a balcony and a view over the volcanoes. Cooking area is small, but good enough to prepare basic food. It has a micro wave and a blender. Lots of space in the clean fridge. Terrace upstairs is best for sunbathing and chilling. Overall extremely good value for money, near to everywhere and the bus from the bus station (just look for the name of Puente Grau on the minibus 0. 80 soles) stops nearby.

It&'s really old but everething works as it should so great value for money. Also there&'s a kitchen and a bakery just nearby so even though breakfast is not included you can fix your own low cost breakfast to eat on the rooftop terrace.
