Good Value--helpful people
I didn't rate this a 10 as it is budget lodging with no pretensions to luxury. That said, it was a great value--beds were comfortable, we had hot water (water pressure varied depending on how many people were showering at a time), and the fresh juice and tea every morning was great. Gilf helped us set up some reasonably priced tours and was invariably cheerful and gracious. It is a ways out of town which may help a little with noise (still noisy but I challenge anyone to find a quiet place in Huaraz). Collectivos run constantly as well as taxis and both are pretty cheap so getting downtown isn't a problem. I recommend this hotel to anyone wanting cheap, clean, and comfortable lodging.
