Robbery at Caroline Lodging in Huaraz, Peru

I stayed at Caroline Lodging in Huaraz, Peru for 3 nights and
on Dec. 5th, 2008 I had my digital camera, app. $100.00 in Peruvian and American currency and some traveler's checks stolen
from my room by a Peruvian male who stayed less than 12 hours
at the hostel. I was staying in the hostel dorm room alone and the door was locked. My backpack was locked and the thief cut it open with a knife.

I don't believe that the manager and his family do not have enough safety precautions in place for this hostel to be safe. Please put all
of your valuables in a safe or avoid Caroline Lodging all together.
