Hostel El Portillo, Humahuaca: 9 reviews and 1 photos


This the best accomodation in Humahuaca !
The first time I saw it : I immediately fell in love with it!!! Everything in the building seems to be built with materials of the region : the walls are in adobe, the ceiling in wood and straw. The lamp in cactus wood and the table cover in typical indian tissue...Inside the building there is a cute little court decorated with flowers and stones and the walls are ochre...and last but not least, the room we had (situated around the court) had an irresistible countryside charm with an iron bed and ochre walls with an old green door... So charming!!!!
The price was not expensive at all : 40 pesos for the double with breakfast.
There are possibilities to have information about the region and tours.
And the hostel has a wonderful restaurant with typical food of the region!
