          Good morning Petra, and thank you for reviewing Pirwa Colonial Hostel. We're sorry that you felt cold during your stay. It is currently wintertime in the Andes, and a colonial building like ours can get cold during this time. As a legally protected historical monument,...More

          Good afternoon, and thank you for leaving a review for Pirwa Colonial. We didn’t actually turn the water off. For two days last month, the local water company, Sedacusco (our next-door neighbors), only turned on the water in the mornings, and an announcement was made...More
