If you are looking for a lively friendly hostel (quite a young crowd), loki on questa santa ana (sp?) is BEAUTIFUL. cheapest dorm at time of writing 19soles a night, includes breakfast and internet. doubles 60 soles. quite a tricky couple of steps to get up, but 24 hr security guard and sheltered space for 2 bikes just inside the entrance. beware the cobbled streets if wet........

10 mins walk from the plaza de armas. worth it.
