We were given a taxi ride near the hostel, but couldn't find it as it was early in the morning and still dark. Moreover, it is not positioned correctly in Google maps (just opposite). The owner came out (5am) and took us to ensuite room even though we had dorms booked and offered us to go to sleep immediately for... More

The owner was awesome! This place had a warm and inviting feeling. He picks you up and drops you off at the bus station. He arranged the Nazca Lines tour. He personally unlocks the front door. It is a very safe place. There is a breakfast that is served in a nice area downstairs. Wifi is great

This is a great hostel. When we arrived in Nazca by bus, one of the employees was waiting to take us to the hostel. He offered to drive us to Chauchilla Cemetery which we declined (but I later regretted) and made sure that we had made reservations to see the Nazca Lines. The room was beautiful, with a private bathroom,... More

We agree it's more a guest house but doesn't mean it's a good option to spend a night or two there. The location is good, close to the plaza. You can walk there from the plaza Cruz del sur bus station. Breakfast is quite decent. Don Fernando is very kind, he helped us to get a privet tour to see... More

This place is good, but probably not very good. Certainly a nice spot though. It's family run and the rooms are within the family complex. Breakfast is reasonable and wifi is ok. The location is excellent only a few blocks from the central square. The place is fairly basic but you need to remember it's only a hostel and it's... More

I had an amazing time staying at Pirwa Nasca (Camiluz): lovely place with a great location, good place for families to stay as well. The staff running the place is very kind and supportive, they provided me with all the information and support to enjoy the tours.

Staff were very friendly and helpful. The owner organised tours for us and gave us a free ride to the bus station when we left. The building had old-fashioned charm, especially the alligators sun bathing in the courtyard. Dormitory was clean and comfortable. Front door always locked, so good for security. Wifi mostly OK.

Felt as though we were intruding on a family home. Lovely elderly lady who runs it/works there but offered to do our washing with no mention of the 15 soles cost (it was a couple of tshirts and some underwear). Shower was a dribble and the place was quiet but dark. Some very misleading info on website, eg the kitchen... More
