Really clean and well kept place that needs some serious Reno ie showers are pretty ding. It’s to be expected of a place this old. Staff are very nice and you have a simple egg and bred breakfast prepared to your liking. Really amazing views of the mountains and the valley. Great place to jump off to other adventures. Close to all in town amenities. My favourite thing? The affordable and accessible laundry services they coordinate for you. Thanks for a lovely stay

Well located, the owners are pretty nice, nice bed and shower. There's a good market one block away. Pretty nice terrace, with a great view, where the breakfast is served. About 3/4 blocks up the main square. Recommended.

They let us check in very early, and when we returned from hiking late the next day, they let us shower for 5 soles. We could not have asked for better accommodation in terms of timing! Very comfy beds as well.

I have stayed at El Jacal many times now. The view from the top floor is amazing. The rooms are clean and neat. The hotel is close to the center square in Huaraz - so it is very easy to get where you want to go.

The owners greeted us as soon as we arrived for our late check in. This was nice and comforting. As soon as we got to our room #304 I 'm not sure what I was thinking, but based off the reviews I did expect more cleanliness. The sheets and bedspread was a little dirtier than my liking and mold in the bathroom ceiling. However, despite this they did provide hot running water was very much needed and (kind of) clean towels so we could dry off. The views in the morning faced the mountains so that was a nice treat. We woke up at 6am so we could get a head start to check out but, the owners nor help were no where to be found. To say the least, I think Huaraz is a sleepy kind of hikers town and eventually I ran into the owner just as I was getting picked up for my Santa Cruz Trek so I could check out. I provided the owner my mastercard so I could check out and even though every stick in their window promoted the MC logo, including Amex, she would not accept my card and insisted Visa. I thought this was misleading but, besides that it wasn't an issue. If you need a cheap place to stay I do recommend it however, it is off the beaten path. I only choose it because it was close to the trekking office.

Family run operation with warm hospitality. CLEAN rooms with updated bathrooms. Nice big shower and high shower head for tall guy. Breakfast patio with good food and nice views. We left our gear in their storeroom when we went on our trek and they did our laundry while we were gone for a nominal fee. Nice market across the street for all your needs. Two thumbs up.

Family run hostal, who were friendly but it really does help if you speak some Spanish. It is exactly what it says, a basic clean & tidy hostal with a good breakfast. Great location - close to the centre of Huaraz but far enough away from any noise.

On the plus side: The room was large with three double beds and one single bed. The beds were comfortable and the blankets warm and thick. The view from the roof top is lovely. The staff is friendly and accommodating and it's only three blocks to the Plaza. On the negative side: There is no elevator and the steps can be slippery. The juice and bread at breakfast are OK but the only entree available is scrambled eggs.

Stayed here 5 nights while doing day hikes in the region and then again after a multi-day hike. Staff were friendly and very helpful, making restaurant recommendations, keeping the tea thermos filled with hot water, and allowing us to store our bags while away. The breakfast was very good and the rooftop setting was fabulous! Snow-capped mountains in the distance and lovely hills to the west to frame golden sunsets. Basic room, comfortable bed, hot water, and cable coverage that included several sports stations for our evening entertainment. Lighting in the room not very bright. We were able to use their rooftop laundry facility. Location is close to main plaza but quiet. Really felt at home. A good base for adventuring in the Cordillera Blanca. Recommend.

The hotel is very cute, looks like a big family house. We've got a very nice double room on the 2nd floor with a window (which made us happy after the previous hotel in Cusco) and good bathroom. We had hot water in shower all the time during our stay. Hair-dryer, express laundry service (6 soles per kilo) - everything we needed was provided to us. We were quite happy with our breakfast (on a roof terrace with a nice mountain view) - scrambled eggs, local cheese, juice, fruits, fried cheese rolls with guacamole, etc. Staff was friendly and very helpful. When our flight to Lima was cancelled and we missed early bus to Huaraz, the owners didn't charge us for the missed night in the hotel. I highly recommend this hotel!
