We arrived late in Puno and where looking for a central hostel. Luckily we found Tayka! The staff is very friendly and helpful with tips for day trips and an agency within the hostel. The rooms are clean, wifi was good, the shower was hot and the breakfast came with more variety compared to other hostels. We had a great... More

This place is super ideal. Very close to the main plaza.. Walking distance to restaurants, and the staff here really takes care of you. From the front desk receptionist, to the actual owner & head manager of the Hostel.. They all really look after you and treat you with care. If you're ever in Puno, this place is like home... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights in between going to Bolivia and Amantani island. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The let us switch around which days we wanted to stay, and let us store our large luggage while we were away for a few nights - this was a godsend when we crossed the border into Bolivia... More

My room was clean, had a hot shower and a very nice breakfast! There is also a travel agency where you can book your bus/ flight tickets and... More

This is a basic hostel, but is quite comfortable and clean for the price. It is walking distance to the Cathedral and to local restaurants. It was a little noisy with street noise, and didn't have great insulation so I got a little cold at night, but ultimately it was a good value. If you're on a tight budget, it's... More

The room wasn´t a dream, but it had the basic stuff (average clean, hot water and poor wifi, but at least it has it). Breakfast was its best feature, even when for getting all what you wanted you needed to wake up somehow early. The price was decent enough for what you get even when I think It could be... More
