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.

We stayed in a Flying Dog hostel in Lima so picked this again in Cuzco as we liked it so much. In Cuzco we stayed in both a double private room and matrimonial style (double bed) room in our stay. Both were clean and nicely presented rooms with comfortable beds and daily tidying service (more than we expected!) Shower pressure... More

Stayed here for 6 nights! Great location and great staff. Received a lot of great advice on local places to visit. 3rd time in Cusco and this place was equal to places that charged twice as much. Easy to walk from Hostel to most places around the Plaza de armas.

I stayed at Flying Dogs throughout Peru on my trip and this one was by far the best! Our room was on the top floor (stairs at straight up!) and the beds were comfortable. The room was spacious enough with a double and a twin bed in it along with a TV and a dresser. The bathroom was a good... More
