Huaraz, Peru, is the perfect destination for mountain lovers who want to explore the breathtaking views of the Cordillera Blanca mountain range.
It’s filled with archaeological sites, rugged trails, and climbing opportunities. Obviously, you’ll need an accommodation to rest in after a busy and active day, so we decided to put together the top 3 best hostels in Huaraz to help you out.
All you need to do is plan your adventure and leave the hostel recommendations to us.
Check-In and Check-Out: The average check-in time is from 15:00 (3 pm), while the Check-Out time is before 11:00 (11 am). Hostels usually offer luggage storage in case you arrive earlier or leave later. Make sure you check if luggage storage is free or if there is an extra cost.
Comfort: When visiting Huaraz, travelers should make sure to pack earplugs. The city is constantly buzzing with the sounds of traffic and the occasional barking of stray dogs. While the Huaraz hostel in our guide is mostly quiet, the town itself is still loud!
At Aldo’s, backpackers have all the information they need to book various hiking tours around Huaraz. This hostel is social and has a great atmosphere for meeting fellow hikers, with a super sociable balcony area in the evenings.
Plus, the view from the roof deck is beautiful. With great value for money, Aldo’s offers a comfortable stay, even if it can be a bit noisy just because of how social people get here.
Location: The location is ideal, as it is within walking distance of all essential amenities and has several bus routes nearby. Furthermore, the supermarket is just around the corner, and there are various opportunities to go out for a drink or a night out if desired.
The hostel and garden are both incredibly beautiful and offer a great opportunity to meet fellow travelers and play with the owner’s dogs.
We really like the rural settings and surrounding views of the Andean mountains. They also provide private accommodation options for groups of up to 3 people, making it ideal for friends and couples traveling together.
All common facilities are clean, beautiful, and in proximity to nature, allowing guests to take in the serene and peaceful atmosphere of the lovely garden and lawn.
Location: in proximity to some of the most amazing landmarks and attractions of the city, like Plaza de Armas, Regional Museum of Ancash, and Rosas Pampa stadium. However, the walk back to the hostel from the center can be a bit tiring due to the higher altitude at which it is located.
The rooms in the hotel are bright and soundproof, and each room is equipped with the necessary amenities to ensure maximum comfort. The decor of the rooms is typical of the region, giving them a harmonious atmosphere in combination with nature.
The staff is very friendly and helpful, and the beds are made, and towels are changed daily.
Overall, the atmosphere is relaxed and laid-back, but meeting fellow travelers in the common areas is easy.
Location: The vibrant center of Huaraz is the perfect base from which to explore the city. This hostel is just a short stroll from the Plaza de Armas, where you’ll have quick access to all the main points of interest. The Cultural Center is just four blocks away, as well as banks, exchange houses, and the Trujillo Market. There are also plenty of restaurants within two blocks.
Of course, there are always cheap hostels. But how do you actually find them? When you are traveling on a shoe-string budget and you want to save every dollar, there are ways to find the cheapest places in Huaraz.
