LADIES BE WARNED: During Carnaval festival I stayed at the Ruinas de Quinara hosteria, where I was targeted as sexual prey by the NEW owner's son. This man was charming and seemed genuine, but when he saw I had a little confidence in him, he forced himself into my room and onto me. Do not stay at this hosteria! Even though this man isn't always there, the same administrator is, SHE gave my cell number to another guest who had asked for it after I had left!! These people have no respect for ladies traveling alone.
VILCABAMBA - LAS RUINAS DE QUINARA. aka Casa del Mauritcio.
Please please ladies do not stay at the hostel. The owner is a rapist and serious sexual predator.
I was unlucky enough to be on the receiving end of this brute in my own room at the hostel and am doing all i can with the help of a lawyer and the British Embassy in the hope that this man is not allowed to hurt and destroy the spirit of anymore females. Unfortuantley the corruption in Vilcabamba is making things difficult as the examining doctor will not produce the DNA results. If so lets hope the Ministry of tourism will protect us and close the place down!! Hopefully the system and justice will be the victor!! For more examples see this link.
I only wish I had been made aware of this monster before my stay there!
Please stay away from this place.
