They promised wifi but didn`t provide it. Had to leave because of that. Staff is nice enough and the problems are not their fault, but place is poorly run in the bigger picture. Bar staff is responsible for preparing breakfast so it is never on time because they are up all night at the bar. The bar is where they... More

I wanted to like this place I really did. upon arrival the girl at the front desk wouldn't even look up and help me for about one minute, all she had to do was smile and say one second. There is no friendly vibe here, most of the people staying there were people that worked there, they didnt interact with... More

We arrived to Cusco via PeruHop and were super excited to check out the town! When we arrived to the hostel, we were kindly greeted by Sue who was absolutely incredible. She told us everything we needed to know, showed us around the hostel, and gave us tips on the surrounding restaurants and shops. Throughout our entire stay, Sue was... More

We had to stay here one night as there was no more availability in the hostel we were staying in before doing the Inca Trail. There are only 2 lockers in a dorm of 4, there was 3 of us which was fine but this is a really stupid idea if you're travelling alone and there isn't a locker free.... More

I arrived quite late and the taxi driver told me this was a party hostel,. something I didn't want. However the staff were super friendly and gave me a room next to the garden, which was quiet and suited me. There are parts of the hostel to party, and parts to chill out, just ask the super friendly reception guy... More

years of traveling and tens of thousands of miles crossed and I've never had as much fun as we did on those nights we can barely remember out with friends I'll never forget. The Point is a great place to start/ finish/ spend your South American adventures

Spent A Total Of Almost Three Weeks There. The Worker Were All Great People And Were Very Accomidating. The Rooms Were Clean And Well Set Up. Food Was Great And Reasonably Priced. O Yeah, They Also Have An Awesome Bar With A Pool Table And Beer Pong. Check It Out!

I found this place as a result of staying at The Point in Lima, and I was certainly impressed, not only by its size, but by everything it had to offer. It has a great restaurant with a huge menu, all at good prices. The bar itself was awesome and had some great parties put on by the really friendly... More
