I was in cusco as part of my medical elective this summer. The organisation went with booked the accomodation so I hadn't really researched it. I couldn't have had a more comfortable stay here. Hot showers, great breakfast, free wifi and incredible staff. Couldn't recommend Casa de Mama enough, really made my time in cusco. As part of our programme... More

This place is relatively cheap. However still overpriced for what you get. We didn't find the staff to be helpful, the rooms were very basic, noisy and there was only luke warm water in the showers. Breakfast was OK though.

You are paying $50/night or less and it includes breakfast: it isn't the Ritz. That being said, I loved staying here. The staff is helpful, the breakfast is good, the room is clean, and the hotel is in a great location with regards to the rest of Cusco. Don't be alarmed by the ally you have to walk down to... More

It is somewhat annoying when travellers try to compare a hostel with a 5 star hotel. We went to Peru for an adventure and this hostel/hotel? was part of it. We stayed for 4 nights before our MP trek and 4 nights after. Everything said in reviews is probably true. The hot water is sporadic as is the Wi-Fi service.... More

This is a great wee hostel with very friendly staff. We stayed here for 5 nights and woke to freshly prepared breakfast each day with fresh juice eggs and tea. They speak excellent English and booked some day tours for us which were a very high standard. The staff allowed us to leave our bags with no charge when we... More

We ended up staying here 8 nights as it was just right for us. Close to town, good breakfast, we asked for a heater and had one all week plus a hairdryer! We always had hot showers and used them at different times of the day. They are an eco hostel so they do turn off the water after 10... More

This is a very basic hostel but the staff makes your stay something to remember. I stayed here for 6 nights and found it a little saddening to leave because it felt like home while we were in Cusco. The beds are comfortable and the breakfast is great. About half of the staff speaks English very well and the other... More

We stayed here for 3 nights before our Salkantay trek. The staff was very friendly, and there was always colca tea available at any time of day. Breakfast was basic (eggs and bread with jam) but delicious, and she cooked the eggs to order. The rooms are cold, but there are plenty of warm blankets and they provide more if... More

Clean facility, rooftop terrace overlooking the city, quiet street, close to shopping and restaurants, bars etc. Typical breakfast, juice, coffee, sweets and eggs if you want. 10 minute walk to the historic town centre. Clean rooms and a good shower. Recommend!
