Stayed here with my girlfriend in February for nearly 2 weeks. This is a great hostel with nice spacious rooms and good facilities (Kitchen, TV, garden, fast WiFi, washing facilities). It is the perfect distance from the main plaza, just a 10 minute walk through a pleasant neighbourhood. Raul, the owner, is a great guy. He got us the cheapest...

Mi Casa is a lovely, quiet and immaculate hostel in the district of Vallecito, a tranquil, upmarket area about 10 minutes from the centre. The owner is very helpful and knowledgeable about the area, and it has a nice old character to the building and good kitchen facilities

This hostel is very clean, and our room was a generous size, with a comfortable bed. However the owner was not very welcoming. We were greeted by the owner moaning and telling us that he is tired of the business, and wants to sell it. He was also rather negative about everything, the weather, laundry, safety, taxis which was rather...

This is a very very clean, peaceful hostel. The owner, Alessandro, was really friendly, helpful and kind. He also speaks good English. It is very safe - we left our bags there while we went to culca canyon for two nights. It is in a safe neighbourhood about 15 minutes walk from the main square. There are shared and private...
