It may be luxurious for a hostel but I felt it was very basic and would never return. Purmamarca is a pretty basic village (even if it is touristy and has nice views) so I did not expect a 5* hotel. However this place did not feel clean and I did not manage to force myself into the shower -... More

Hello Virginia, We are very sorry about your opinion on our country inn and Purmamarca village in general. We were surprised when we read “this place did not feel clean”, when almost all of the comments in social networks highlight our hygiene and tidiness. We pay special attention on this. We were also surprised about your appreciation on Purmamarca as... More

Quite a challenge to select a place to stay among the amazing hotel offer in tiny Purmamarca. We selected this one on the basis of nice reviews and its ecological and social ambitions. As expected our room was simple but comfortable enough and very quiet. Hot water was available and a safe was provided. Weak wifi. Front desk was very... More

We arrived in Purmamarca during a mild dust storm, so we were happy to find such a lovely, new, clean and pleasantly decorated hotel with a room that had two attached bedrooms. The hotel has a view of the Cerro de los Siete Colores, and is within walking distance of the main square with its interesting market. The buffet breakfast... More

This hotel is a warm mountain retreat. Clean, friendly staff, good simple breakfast. Great natural surroundings, and llamas! I wish we could have stayed here for 2 nights as we didn't get the chance to visit much of the surrounding area before heading to Cafayate. You won't be disappointed

As the pictures show, Posta de Purmamarca is situated beautifully and this does make for a great sense of well-being in the evening when the sun goes down and you can sit in the courtyard (the only place the internet works) and have a beer. It is a functional, clean, place to stay, but there is nothing particularly stylish or... More

We spent only 1 night (part of a Say Hueque travel agency arrangement) in this very nice place and it was a great experience. We highly recommend the place.

Stayed here for three nights and enjoyed Purmamarca and this B&B immensely! The rooms were nice, quaint. Breakfast was filling and excellent and the grounds of this property were beautiful. Check out market in the town, but know they sell the exact same alpaca clothes, etc. for less in Tilcara. I can't wait to return. Watch out for the llamas!... More
