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!

I stayed here during my trip to Machu Pichu. It is a very nice little hotel in the center of Cusco. It is very close to Alma and within walking distance of all the necessary stuff. The rooms are very cozy and comfortable and have all the basic stuff, like nice bed, hot water, access to wi-fi, etc. The staff... More

This was a great hostel. The staff were really friendly and helped us organise our time in cusco. The rooms are really clean and the showers were hot. The location of casa de mama is perfect for cusco first-timers as it's right near the city center and located on a one way street (very quiet). The breakfast is a classic... More

This fit the bill perfectly - it was also not far to the ticket office for Machu Picchu tickets. the hotel staff was very... More
