After checking out every hostal and boutique hotel in Paracas, I can confidently say that Hostel Santa Maria is the place to stay! We had a lovely ocean view room with french doors and a balcony and private bathroom. While the continental breakfast was a little on the light side, it was fine. The front desk staff was extremely friendly...

This hostal is simply lovely. All white and comforting, is divided in two buildings (the main one and a secondary one just a few meters from the former), both very nice, clean and looking like a house. It is just 5 minutes by walk from the imbarcadero for the Ballestas Islands.

This is a perfect place for your stay in Paracas. It is located on the main square of the small town. The rooms are clean and simple. They are equiped with a fan and have free wifi. The owner speaks english and french. Breakfast is not the best we had in Peru.

Solid clean place to stay in Paracas. Clean with Wifi and nice staff. Average breakfast and simple accommodations. Worth the 50$ American dollars we paid. We skipped the afternoon excursion but the boat ride to the islands was very fun and the wildlife didn't disappoint.

Clean, and nice 👌🏼 near to the port and nice restaurants. Shopping center of artisanal clothing, jewelry, accessories. If you are a fan of artisanal jewelry near the hostel there ask for art creative Gonzales. You are going to love his work.

The hotel was beautiful. Great location. Average breakfast was included at a cute restaurant nearby. Rooms were very clean, comfortable and had hot water. Internet was spotty but 2 free computers were available. Manager left much to be desired. He spoke fluent French as did my travel companion. He explained the hotel price and the tours and services that were...

The hotel was located in a good loction with easy access to bars, restaurants and boats. The breakfast was ok, if you aren't to hungry. The water pressure for the shower was very poor, hopefully they will sort this out. The rooms were small but clean.

This hostel delivers what is advertised. It's in a good location being close to the pier for a visit to the Ballestas Islands. It's a short drive to Paracas Nature Reserve. Our room was basic but comfortable. The reading lights did not work. The shower was ok. There is a roof top terrace where we sat and had a drink....

“there are 2 buildings, in the newer one, the rooms are very small although the bathrooms are good size. Very poor ventilation especially the lower levels, as well as noise coming from water heater and people living on first floor.”
