Hostal La Florida Ica Reviews
Jun 03, 2006
For US$7 a night, this is a simple and clean hostal within walking distance to central Ica, the cinemas and the bus station, but in a very quiet suburban area away from the mototaxi runs. You might not meet anyone here (I didn´t, staying in a 3-bed dorm) as there´s no common area and no kitchen facilities, but at least they´ve made the rooms more interesting by painting big pictures of Chimu ceramics on the wall. The bathrooms are sparkly with lots of mirrors and green faux-marble and has what someone else described as ¨the best showers in Peru¨- that is, hot, and with decent water pressure.
I believe the hostal is owned by a woman who lives on the bottom floor with her family. You have to leave your key at the front desk before going out and have to be let in by someone, which means security is great, but it´s not really ideal if you´re the sort of person who likes to come and go as you please. They´re all very friendly (not sure if they speak any English) and leaving my bags in the deposit for the day was no problem and cost no extra. It would be nice if they published their actual address on their flyers.
