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

Great location a couple of streets away from the main square (although it's up a bit of a hill) Friendly staff, full DVD collection, tours on offer. The room was a little cold but I was there during rainy season and you could ask for free extra blankets. Towels were also free! Close to lots of laundrettes too. Recommended

If you want to stay some nights in Cusco and know the town, this is a very good choice. I stayed there before going to Machu Pichu, it was a small, clean, quiet place with friendly people and a very good price per night. Enjoy! Manuel Beltrán, 32, MEXICO

The flying dog hostels are always a safe bet, they have a general good standard, good breakfast, friendly staff, etc. But the cusco hostel is extremely cold during winter, there are only two shared bathrooms, the kitchen and general space is small. Doooo ask for a flying dog stamp card, you save a lot of money when you travel :)
