We were warmly welcomed by the young man at the desk and shown to a room up two flights and to the front. It was clean and comfortable but the best thing was the towel... and the sheets. They smelled so fresh and they were so fluffy, it was such a treat having travelled for almost 7 months! Also cable...

We stayed in Puno for 2 nights and arrived extremely early from a bus that first morning. The owner was kind and without hesitation allowed us to check in. Throughout our time there he was helpful and attentive. Breakfast was delightful. Supet fresh bread rolls daily with ham, cheese and avo, fruit and juice. We had a twin which was...

Located half a block from Plaza Pino and 2 blocks from Plaza de Armas, Quechuas offers backpackers great convenience at a very reasonable price of USD10 per night for shared dorms. A simple breakfast of bread, cereal, fruit and juice is included in this price. Breakfast is served early too, from 6.20am to cater to the Uros Islands daytrippers. I...

This building stands out being taller than others on its side of the street (And oddly narrow for it's height) but its a great place to stay. Breakfast is the normal hostel fare of hot drink, bread roll and spread but with the slight upgrade of a slice of cheese or garlic sausage. The rooms are the warmest we have...

I stayed overnight for 2 nights at this hostel. It's a nice and cozy accommodation. It's not far from the downtown. You can walk just 5-10 minutes to the walking street. They also provided the laundry service. The breakfast was included in the price.

Few blocks from the plaza. Stayed here a couple nights. Like Puno itself, place is just okay, nothing great and nothing bad. Breakfast was real basic, wifi was good, and desk was pretty helpful. $30 per night was fine.

Overall I wasn't super impressed with Puno, but I did like this place. It was one of the better places we stayed in Peru. Super comfy bed, great breakfast, and accommodating staff. Highly recommend it. Un buen lugar.

Stayed here in November 2012. We walked there from the bus station, which was a long way to carry our backpacks. We took a taxi when we went back the other way. It's in a great location for the town centre and shops, market and supermarkets. We stayed in the dorm on the first night and they promised us a...
