Stayed here for 3 nights, beds were comfy, lots of warm bedding, a tv and a private bathroom, staff were super friendly and helpful. Only issues we had with this place was the water pressure, the hot water, and only 1 working electrical outlet, some mornings hardly any water would come out of the shower and some mornings it would...

We arrived late in Puno and where looking for a central hostel. Luckily we found Tayka! The staff is very friendly and helpful with tips for day trips and an agency within the hostel. The rooms are clean, wifi was good, the shower was hot and the breakfast came with more variety compared to other hostels. We had a great...

This place is super ideal. Very close to the main plaza.. Walking distance to restaurants, and the staff here really takes care of you. From the front desk receptionist, to the actual owner & head manager of the Hostel.. They all really look after you and treat you with care. If you're ever in Puno, this place is like home...

This is a basic hostel, but is quite comfortable and clean for the price. It is walking distance to the Cathedral and to local restaurants. It was a little noisy with street noise, and didn't have great insulation so I got a little cold at night, but ultimately it was a good value. If you're on a tight budget, it's...

The room wasn´t a dream, but it had the basic stuff (average clean, hot water and poor wifi, but at least it has it). Breakfast was its best feature, even when for getting all what you wanted you needed to wake up somehow early. The price was decent enough for what you get even when I think It could be...
