Stayed here in November 2015. Wasn't sure what to expect, knowing it is a hostel, but the experience was more like staying in a hotel. We had a double room with a massive, comfortable bed, and great views of the city and the mountains. The bathroom was clean too. The staff were really helpful. We recommended this place to fellow...

This hostel is one of the cheaper options in Cusco (which is a relatively expensive city in Peru). Its located a bit away from the main square up a hill, which unless your used to the altitude may leave you out of breath. There are all the local facilities around... Like a launderette (I would be careful about the one... More

Pros: The staff were very friendly and even made us an early breakfast as we had to leave for our tour very early in the morning. They allowed us to leave our bags in the storage room free of charge as we were coming back to the hostel after the Machu Picchu Trip. The rooms were basic yet comfortable. The... More

My wife and I had a private room with ensuite and it was comfortable, very clean and had everything we needed. There was a heater in the room which was helpful as it got cold. The staff couldn't be more helpful or any friendlier, the common areas are nice, and the breakfast was good. We also enjoyed the relaxed and... More

Great staff, clean rooms. We stayed in the dorm room (4 beds). My only complaint is that there was only 1 room key and there were no security lockers for the individual beds. However, the rooms were comfy, the staff was nice and helpful and able to arrange a bike tour for us and transportation to and from the airport.... More

I stayed here for 3 nights whilst acclimatising for the salkantay trek. It is a short walk (10 mins) from the main square and so is in a quiet location. We stayed in a private room with shared bathroom. The room was clean and bright. The bathrooms were clean but hot water and water pressure was a bit temperamental. Friendly... More

I stayed here with my wife and 2 year old baby. We had a double room and it more than met our expectations. The room was large with two beds and a private bathroom. The room and bathroom were clean when we arrived. The shower was awesome and put out a lot of hot water. I liked that the rooms... More

If you looking for a clean, peaceful hostel where you can just sit back relax and get a comfortable nights sleep while preparing for the Inca Trail then this is the place. If you like me that always prefers to go out for the party and likes to come to a quiet, peaceful bed for some rest than this is... More

Hostal was clean and staff were friendly. Not sure if breakfast was included as was not informed but following other reviews would have liked to know. They have a bar with there own brewed beer which actually is very good and one of the best beers had in Peru

I liked his place. The breakfast is awesome...better than any other hostel I've stayed at in all of South America. I stayed there in November 2014 for 3 days. The rooms are clean and the staff is friendly.
