I stayed at Inkawasi twice this January 2015 and I loved it. Great starting point of your stay in the capital. Helpful and friendly staff, clean rooms, amazing value for your money. You'll also find great bars and cosy restaurants walking distance. I would definitely recommend staying here.

Inkawasi has a really good price when you go on a budget! Rooms are ok and the service is ok! The person I liked the most was the cleaning guy! Very polite! They don't really help with carrying your bags except for the cleaning guy. That was my experience with Inkawasi.

I stayed at Inkawasi for two nights in December 2014 and loved it. Very clean hostel with helpful and friendly staff. I stayed in room 320 which came with a private bathroom and a view of the pacific. Amazing value for money at this hostel. I would definitely recommend staying here.

This hotel are not to be trusted with a reservation. We arrived on 12 Dec after an 18 hour flight at 3am to be told they had no room for us and no booking but it was clearly shown in the booking.com system and had been guaranteed with a card. We had told them of our late flight arrival time....

My friend and I were told when we arrived that there was 24 hour reception so we didn't need any keys to get in to the hostel. We went out at night and, when we returned, no one was there to answer the door. My friend and I were stranded outside at 2am frantically trying to get in because all...

I stayed in this hostel for a couple of nights with my boyfriend and we loved our room. It was at the top of the building and had a great ensuite bathroom that was very clean and had a good shower.

Unfortunately I can't recommend the hostel as the bed smelled like pee and blanket was dirty. Furthermore the room smelled moldy. Bathroom was ok. The breakfast was included but only rolls and jam was on the table + tea, thats it ... insufficient. Atmosphere wasn't good either. That resulted in 2 points only. For one night it could be fine...
