My friends and i stayed in this hostal for 12 days. It may be not best location but its a good walk from the plaza or other destinations. You can always take a taxi. (usually 3 or 4 soles but you can always bargain) The place is in being remodeled but still has some rooms available. We stayed in two... More

I have mixed feelings about this place. Let's start with the good: courtyard was nice to sit in and chill a little bit after we arrived, Eddie, the guy that helped us throughout most of our stay was very nice and helpful, and I felt like he was genuine. Did not speak English but my husband speaks some Spanish and... More

We liked this hostal. The entire staff is friendly and helpful and the rooms are situated around a nice court yard. There is some construction work going on but when that is finishes it will even be better. The rooms on the street side are the newest (but also a bit cold). You will get good value for the price.

We were looking for an inexpensive place to stay and found the perfect place! Our stay was very pleasant. The hostel was really clean and close to everything. The service was friendly and very helpful, it was excellent! And breakfast was included! For sure we will stay there again on our next trip to Cuzco.

We really enjoyed our stay at Quipu! It is a quiet hostal, and was perfect after party hostels and 10 bed doorms. Most of the rooms had ensuite bathrooms, and the beds were really comfy especially after doing the inka trek! The staff does not speak much english, and we didnt speak spanish, but still the people running the hostel... More

Our 3 night stay in Cusco was spectular and unlike any other vacation we have ever taken due to Lida and Cesar. I have never felt so welcome any where in my life. They were so willing to make our stay in Cusco enjoyable. They went completely out of their way to set up tours of Machu Pichu, meals, and... More
