Good location, quiet. Spacious room.

Friendly, clean and comfortable!
Lighting a little low and walls are thin so can be noisy.
The staff spoke little English but were really delightful. It's essentially an old family home now used as a B&B - Has that slightly dated family house decor but comfy lounge and cosy kitchen...

Not in the center. Just 5 mins walk, not a big deal though
Friendly staff, like homestay

You pay a lot to feel unwelcome
The atmosphere is BAD! It was supposed to you to feel home and cozy, but the true is you feel like you're not an invited guest is someone else's house. Always that feeling of being unwelcome. Absolutely didn't worth the price we paid.
The structure is fine, decent beds and showers. They have actual beds, not bunks, which was good, and the room was really big. The breakfast was fair too, although you have it in the house kitchen, a regular kitchen which does not support more than 4 or 5 people. Guess how do they manage to fit everyone during the high season.

Wonderful breakfast! :D
I think it would be nicer in high season with a nice atmosphere - I was one of 2 people in the hostel so the social spaces weren't so social! :P The woman who checked me in and made my breakfast was wonderful, and also gave me tips on possible walks to do etc and ordered me a taxi :) The other two members of staff I met however were quite sullen.
The breakfast at Alojamiento Soledad is WONDERFUL! The owner cooked it just for me when I got up, and it included not only egg, coffee, fresh pineapple juice and bread but also homemade mango jam! Yum! She also made me a sandwich for the day (with homemade apple jam!) free of charge. The bedroom was lovely and just 2 beds in my dorm. The bathroom is spacious but not particularly elegant. There is a spacious room to relax downstairs with plenty of sofas.

Nice quite restful space
The hot water was a little iffy. The staff has you keep your room key in the office whenever you leave, so you have to buzz to be let inside each time you go out. Also there is no central heating so can get a bit cold at night - so ask for extra blankets!
The staff was easy to work with and let us take a quick shower before our long overnight bus to the next town after we had checked out. They were quite accommodating with our needs. Really nice rooftop hangout area. Breakfast was pretty decent.

Home far away from home
The lovely staff was very friendly and helpful. Their house was like a home far away from home for us. Exellent breakfast with homemade marmelade and eggs. They also helped us to organise and book all our tours and trekkings. We can definetely recommend this hostel! :)

Be careful and double-check prices!
- Be careful if you're on a low budget, we really felt like walking wallets for the hosting family from the beginning to the end... They charged us higher for the room than what we booked on Booking, saying at the check-in that our type of room was not longer available but they would update us in a better room at no cost, which was in the end not the case at the time of check-out!!! They also sold us tours for 35S and then charged 40S for the same tours, and even charged us 10S by shower after we came back from the Santa Cruz trek when it's usually free in other hostels. - This is a family house so not always easy to use the kitchen which is really small and used everyday by the family, you feel a bit like you're intruding at someone's place - A bit away from the center (10min walk)
- Confortable, clean and very quiet - Wifi was working OK - Our best breakfast after 1 month in Peru with bread and homemade jam, scrambled eggs... The staff was kind enough to leave us the breakfast all prepared for us when we had to leave very early in the morning for tours, which was highly appreciated!

Comfortable stay at a fair price
Very comfortable place to stay, decent price, clean, hot water. I was leaving for a trekking the day after at 4:30 in the morning and the staff prepared breakfast for me the day before and left it in the breakfast room.

As noted, the breakfasts lacked imagination and variety.
Everything about the place was excellent, except for the breakfasts. The staff, the facilities, the location, etc.

Excellent staff and helpful with tours around Huaraz!!
Staff were very helpful and welcoming. Breakfast was served beautifully each day and they made us feel as though we were at home. They assisted with tours and we enjoyed our stay very much. I accidentally left my mobile phone the evening of check-out and a staff member went out of his way to find me at the Bus terminal to hand it back to me - I am so grateful to the staff for all they did to help make our stay enjoyable!!!

Comfortable home stay
Not the cheapest option in town, but there are only 3 beds in the shared room.
Good breakfast. Quiet. Hot water. After checkout you can still store your luggage (and shower for 7 soles). Comfortable living room, feels like home rather than a hostel.

Hostel totally lacked any atmosphere. Lady serving breakfast seemed to really not like her job

Clean family home
This isn't a hostel or a hotel, it's a family house. So sometimes you feel like you're "invading their space" (I was going to watch a movie in the living room and while I was sitting there in front of the TV picking a DVD, the owner and her friends sat on the couches and started watching TV. So I had to leave the room and I felt incredibly disrespected). Like I said, this isn't a hostel, you're basically staying in someone's home and that can get pretty uncomfortable.
The staff were helpful and kind. The room and bathroom were super clean and the bed and pillow really comfortable. The kitchen is available to use. The showers are incredibly good, really hot water and high pressure.
