This hostel was nice and accommodating. The staff was great and the room was nice for what we paid for. The location was a little bit dark and slightly far from the main square, but I didn't feel unsafe or like it was too far to get anywhere. I would definitely stay here again.

A comfortable and character filled hostel.
A really comfortable room with soft beds. The hot water was variable but the hotel had lots of character and a sunny courtyard to relax in. It was up a slight hill, which can make you breathless in the thin air. Stephan at reception was wonderfully helpful and organised some great tours for us. We appreciated the coca tea provided but found the breakfast extremely monotonous.

2/10 Poor

Don't stay here!
This hotel has horrible service. They messed up our reservation and claimed it wasn't their fault. When we showed them proof they messed up, they refused to apologize. Rooms are basic. Wifi was terrible. Breakfast was good.

2/10 Poor

Unwelcoming service and mediocre facilities
The hotel staff was very rude to us. We were shown a room for a particular price and upon payment they asked for double the price. The hotel manager proceeded to be very rude, even abusive.

Pretty good with the right expectations
This hostel is a great option if you are looking for something affordable and a short walk from Plaza de Armas. Pros: - It's cheap (let's be honest it's important) - Quiet area of the street - 5-7 minute walk to the Plaza - Free breakfast - Free, private airport pick up - It's very clean Cons: - No AC or Heat (however you can rent a radiator heater for a few bucks) - Don't change your towels (no matter how long your stay is) unless you beg - Blow Dryer that you can borrow is the worst and shorts often - Pillows suck - They will tell you the credit card machine is broken when you check out (however if you insist that is the only way you can pay it will magically start working) - Staff is helpful, but always seemed annoyed by us ...but it is super cheap, so even with those cons, set your expectations and enjoy having extra spending money!

A pleasant, well-located hostel
Hostel Mallqui is walking distance to Plaza de Armas and many attractions, shops and restaurants. The staff is extremely helpful and will arrange tours, call taxis, make phone calls for you, and make sure you are happy with your accommodations. The private rooms are clean and pleasant, tho not luxurious, and the private rooms in the back are very quiet. Bottled water, soda and beer are available in the lobby. Travel guides are on loan, there's a book exchange and lots of dvds, also in the lobby.
