The location is very good and there are some very friendly helpful staff working here. We stayed in the Gypsy suite and were sold on pictures that looked like some care and effort had been put in to the place. The main issues that let this place down for us were that there were no curtains in the room on... More

Located in the heart of Cusco's vibrant and funky San Blas neighborhood, Casa de la Gringa was my introduction to Cusco. For many, Casa de la Gringa is a portal into the “spiritual/shamanic” world of Peru, and provides a safe introduction into this culture for those who are not familiar. The showers are divinely hot, and all the staff are... More

This hostel is a short walk away from the "Plaza de Armas" which is the main square in Cusco. It´s an even shorter walk to the area of San Blas which has restaurants and nice shops with plenty of souvenirs. The staff was extremely friendly, the rooms were clean and there´s always somebody to help you with directions and suggestions... More

We stayed here for 6 nights recently and had a friendly greeting from the night shift man ! The location in San Blas is great (great restaurants and bars around) and you feel very safe. Beds are comfy and sufficient blankets are given to keep you toasty! Breakfast is good - a choice of fruit salad or eggs with bread... More

This place is tucked into the pleasant heights of the San Blas neighborhood; a short & safe 10 minute hike to the central plaza (Plaza de Armas). I stayed in the "Gypsy Room" which has a private en suite WC with Shower. For basic accommodation I found it be priced just right (a good deal). My room was clean and... More

I stayed here a couple of days before and after my trip to Machu Picchu. The staff was wonderful, and the breakfast was good. The hostel is located in San Blas, which is very close to the Plaza de Armas. The rooms I stayed in were very small not much more room then the beds. The beds come with many... More

I have stayed here twice: for about 3 weeks one trip, and for about 4 weeks the second trip (both visits included some side trips to sacred valley ect, but were mostly in Cusco). Both visits have been amazing. The staff is super friendly and fun, and always have good recommendations for local activities. I also always meet the most... More
