Rimacpampa was the first hostel I stayed at. It was more than enough for me. The building was located between other buildings, almost unnoticeable, very cozy, with an outdoor courtyard in the middle. There was always hot water for tea available and staff at the desk ready to answer any questions. Also, their breakfast is pretty good, they'll cook you... More

Stayed here for a few nights after the Inti Raymi. Even though it's located in a bustling location in central Cusco, It's a really quaint hostel in an old colonial building with a beautiful central courtyard and most of the important attractions in Cusco are within a very short walking distance. (The Plaza de Armas is just two, three blocks... More

We stayed here four nights as part of a Geckos tour. It is a smaller, quiet hotel in a good location (10min walk to Plaza de Armas) and has a nice atmosphere with rooms located around a central courtyard. Reception staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was nicely decorated, quite large and had a small, older TV and... More

Very central but quiet location in Cuzco, with friendly staff. Rooms are spacious and clean, although some are a bit dark (I stayed here twice). Beds are very comfortable. Unfortunately, the hot water doesn't quite get hot, and the walls are very thin.

I stayed here as part of an organised tour and found the two nights some of the most comfortable of my trip. Firstly the rooms are clean and spacious although they could do with better lighting and the bathroom could only be improved by the addition of a fan. There were ample electricity outlets- a very important point if you... More

Great location in this hotel close to everything you want to see in Cusco. Hotel staff are very friendly and eager to help whenever possible. Breakfast included with scrambled eggs. Rooms are cosy. Towels are kind of smal. Free coca tea and nice courtyard ib middle of hotel.

We stayed here as part of our Intrepid tour for 2 nights and 2 additional nights on our own. Clean rooms, although quite dark and a bit chilly. I believe you can rent a space heater for extra. Free Wifi. Free coca tea. Nice breakfast with scrambled eggs. A hair dryer was not provided in the room and we feared... More

Stayed in Rimacpampa for 2 nights and experience was generally good. Rimacpampa had relatively warm comfortable rooms (we were there in the winter). Not much in terms of noise even from neighboring rooms. Bathrooms were pretty standard, relatively clean. Rimacpampa is a 5 minute walk to the Temple of the Sun/Santo Domingo and is a 7 minute walk to Avenida... More
