I moved to Andescamp Hostel for the last few days of my trip. It was very quiet but the staff were really friendly and the communal areas were nice to hang out in. They had a collection of books with cosy seating areas and a bar. They also had a communal kitchen which was nice. It is conveniently located just 5 minutes from the main plaza. The private room I took was bright and airy for just $13 which can be negotiated when the hostel is empty! It is a good option for female solo travel as it felt safe and they have sharing dorms or single rooms.
The Andescamp Hostel offers an array of rooms, from dorms to privates with shared bathrooms or ensuites. Rooms range from $6-$27 with the upper range being for family rooms where you can have a double bed with a single in one room. I would recommend this place for a low budget hostel and would stay there again as it is convenient and has a nice vibe. It is not the most homely of places, quite draughty and simple however it was perfect for what I was looking for. Be sure to request a room with a window as some of the others I saw were pretty dark but other then that you can’t really go wrong in this place.
Unlike many hostels in Huaraz, the staff at Andescamp Hostel spoke English! In fact they spoke English, German, Spanish, French and Hebrew. The staff are not short of recommendations for things to do. You can find quite cheap food in town which was only a short walk away so I did not cook. In fact the food in Huaraz is great! They have a wide range of international options which you can check out in the food tab. If you are stopping in Huaraz to do a trek such as Laguna 69, I would definitely recommend the Andescamp Hostel. Above all, it was clean, affordable and friendly, you can book here.
