Excelente experiencia. El hostel es muy cómodo y Ricardo con su pareja son persons muy amables y consideradas.
Me voy más que feliz de Huaraz.




Foi minha primeira experiência com o worldpackers e que bom que foi no El Jacal Backpacker.
O hostel é um lugar bem tranquilo e organizado. Ricardo e Íris sempre atenciosos e flexíveis, prontos para auxiliarem no que fosse necessário. Além disso, fiquei encantada com Huaraz.
Foi incrível! Recomendo a todos.




Es lo Mejor...... sí están viniendo o pensando en venir a Huaraz no lo duden, a parte de que la ciudad es hermosa y se puede ver muchos nevados, el Jacal es un hostel hermoso, céntrico, cómodo. Ricardo, Iris, Don José son personas realmente amables, flexibles si necesitas algo, no te dejan sola si tienes alguna duda o problema. Realmente ha sido una experiencia de voluntariado inolvidable. 😊
