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

We stayed here for one night before heading to Agua Caliente so we were looking for just a basic inexpensive spot where we could do some walking around to see the sights, and a little shopping. This fit the bill perfectly - it was also not far to the ticket office for Machu Picchu tickets. the hotel staff was very... More

Reasonably priced (for Cusco!), near the center, clean, at least our room and the hallway. The hotel is located away from traffic, so there is little noise from the street. However, the large gap between the door and the doorstep ensured that the noise isolation from the hallway was rather poor... Those accustomed to travelling in Peru will not find... More

The staff here are so sweet and friendly, which made our long stay here a very nice one. The rooms are very clean and spacious, the WiFi works well, as does the hot water, and each bed has 3 blankets for cold nights. The city tour and sacred valley tour which the hotel arranged for us were both really great... More

Originally we were booked at another hostel for this one night, but due to overbooking we were referred to Hostal Girasoles by the booking website. As the reviews were fine overall, we decided to book. We got a lovely email from Marina to say our booking was confirmed - as we were really struggling to buy our Machu Picchu tickets... More

Very nice hostel (clean, decent, good location, free wi-fi, very nice personal, good breakfast). They arranged cab to pick us from the bus station (even thought you have to later pay for it). Sometimes there was problem with hot water. Otherwise everything great!

We were looking for a three person room and found this lovely place. It's hidden away in a small side street, so most taxi's don't like/can pull up right in front, but if you meet the right driver he still will back up down the small street. Friendly and helpful staff, great breakfast, much more than the typical bread and... More

We stayed at this hostel in Cusco for 4 nights. Señora Mercedes met us at the bus station upon our arrival from Puno, which was very convenient. The hostel itself was comfortable, in a quiet but convenient location within reasonable walking distance of the main square. The room was pleasant, with plenty of hot water. Breakfast was nice, and included... More
