The have electric showers which are not at all hot enough to compensate with how cold the room was. Breakfast was very very light. If you want to pay with a credit card they add a 10%, so bring cash. We ended up staying there for only one night and went to the hotel literally next door which was cheaper...

Stayed here for one night and was perfectly adequate. Not the nicest room ever but hot water shower, cable, wifi and a decent breakfast. Room was a bit cold tho! This place was also so kind to let us use a room for an hour or so the evening we got back from our island tour to shower and re-pack...

The hotel has a good location, close enough to both the lake and the main avenue of Puno, in a very quiet area. Clean spacious rooms, with hot water and free WIFI. Basic breakfast and not the best service ever. Recommended.

Stayed here for 2 nights at the end of November. Only 1 block south from Plaza de Armas in central Puno, some of the main sights and many restaurants were all in easy walking distance (<5mins.) The staff was very friendly and while we didn't have anything for them to help us with, they certainly asked to help whenever they...

Organized and clean hostel, spacious room and comfortable beds. Breakfast is good and they offer several options of fruits, jam, breads and juices . Friendly staff. Near Plaza de Armas, it is best location in Puno. I will come back for sure.

Ready the reviews and my guide book, I do confirm this hostel may have been nicer in the past. I came for 2 nights but left after the first as everything was bad. Sure, the staff is friendly, but that doesn't worth 50 soles for a smile. Very bad wifi in the rooms that have direct windows to the corridor...

I couldn t find through any web site. When I arrive to Puno get to Plaza de Armas by taxi and look around for cheap hostel and found Tayka Hostel only 200mt away from Plaza de Armas. Price is reasonable and breakfast nice. The room was clean and staff was so kindly and helpful. Highly recommended..

After some confusion based on the fact that this hostal has recently changed names, we managed to locate this hostel. The rooms were clean and quite nice with TV and a shower that was warm although slightly temperamental. The location of the hostal is very close to the centre/ Plaza de Armas and the breakfast on offer is ok for...

I found this place by accident, and am glad I did! Tayka is located only two blocks from the Plaza de Armas, and is in a secure location. From the moment I walked in, I was warmly welcomed and assisted by Marinele. ALL of the staff were friendly, courteous and helpful. I stayed at this hotel twice, and my first...
