We stayed for the before and after our 4 day trek to Macchu Picchu. The first 2 nights were in the front room, really close to the street and front door. It was a huge room with its own bathroom, but the door bell contantly ringing and the noise of the street was a bit annoying. We asked if we could be moved further to the back of the hostel for our return stay. The staff were very helpful and we got a room right out the back. Sometimes there is no hot water in the shower, as they dont have the gas going all the time to save on fuel. (thought that was great use of energy) just ask and they turn it on for you and in 5 mins the water is hot enough for a shower. Beds were warm with plenty of blankets, breaky good. Loved the
"fanny" strawberry jam.
