The Point is a really great place to stay in cusco. A stone throw away from the main square, the hostel is equipped with comfy beds, hot showers, good food and good nightlife. The hostel manager Fabian clearly knows what he's doing. What made my stay most of all was the receptionist called Liz. Everyday she was so helpful and... More

Was recommended to stay at the Point by a bartender in town and I'm glad I came here! For 25 soles, roughly $8 you get much more than your average hostel, including a fun bar, great kitchen, even beer pong! They have group tours that take you to Machu Picchu, but my recommendation is to take the buses on your... More

Cuzco is always great, every time I go back I try to stay in a different hostel. This time I would say was the best choice, great atmosphere, comfy dorms (and quite clean) has a great bar upstairs with awesome music. Juan Carlos is always caring about how your are doing and how's the service working, yo can trust on... More

Wow, never expected to have the best trip of my life here in Cusco. This hostel provided me with everything I could imagine, and the staff is absolutely amazing. By far best part of staying here were the nights at the bar where even if I came by myself there was an environment where we can all meet with other... More

The hostel atmosphere is good and they have a bar where play some music and happy hour drinks. The hostel has good location, so you are able to visit most of cusco landmarks by foot. If you need to get early you will probably get a cold shower because they only turn the heat on by 6:30 AM and don't... More

Just left this hostel after a two week stay. One of the better places I've styed on this trip. Staff was friendly, showers were hot, and had a lot of fun at the bar. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a solid backpacker hostel.

I stayed at the Point for 6 nights and I could have stayed there much longer. Let's start with the negative things, the staff was always nice but sometimes a little slow, e.g. when we came back from our inca jungle tour and brought some friends so that they would stay there as well, they started telling that the prices...

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
