Made reservations based on good reviews and price. Walked into the hostel and looked into a cavernous reception area that was dark, dingy, and filled with backpacker bags. Guess locking stuff into a room isn't an option? Saw into a couple of rooms and they just looked sad and dingy. We left and went back to a small hotel nearby... More

Positive: La Señorita is really nice and helpful. The breakfast is the usual one with bread, fresh orange juice, marmelade and tea or coffee. She prepares tea all day if you wish and there is a kitchenette to use too. The wifi works very well. The rooms are very basic but nice. I would go for the upper rooms as... More

- Personal is helpful. At the day of our trekking we received breakfast before our pick-up at 5:00. - The courtyard is nice and quite. you can read there quietly a book. - There is a kitchen that can be used although this one could be cleaner.

A quiet hostel, with helpful staff, included and good breakfasts. Rooms are clean and showers at most times have hot water! The location is off the main plazas which makes it less noisy. It is however close enough to san Francisco and plaza del armas to not have to walk far to find a restaurant. The place to regain energy... More

We stayed here for 2 nights before Machu Picchu and 1 night upon our return. We had a double room with bathroom. It was large, had wardrobes and drawers, lots of blankets on the beds for the chilly Cuzco nights and a nice, modern, clean bathroom. The water was always hot and the wifi signal was strong the entire stay.... More

My brother and I stayed at Quipu for a week. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. The location of this place is perfect! Close to the train station, markets, nightlife, three gorgeous plazas, and all that great cusco architecture. Complementary breakfast was a plus... Fresh bread, coffee, orange juice, organic free range eggs, marmalade, tasty butter and the coca... More

We stayed at this hostal for four nichts. The rooms are clean and the hot water was working eine all day long. Because we travel in a budget we where looking for cheeper places, and when we entered the hostal for the first time, asking for a price it was a little to high for us. But because it was... More

The people here are what make this place great. They are so accommodating and helpful. They make breakfast for you when you wake up, not when it's convenient for them. The room we got had a nice street view and since the hostal is located near the center this was entertaining. The rooms can get cold in June at night,... More

I stayed in this hostel with my sister and I really have a nice stay. The breakfast was good, the rooms were cleaned and the attention was absolutely good! It has a good location too and what is very important... it is quiet, you can sleep very well!!

I stayed with 2 friends in a room this past July. The staff was super friendly and helpful. They helped us set up tours and activities to visit the Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu and other attractions. They would chit chat with us during the breakfast and make us feel at home. It was an excellent experience and would definitely do... More
