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

I spent two nights at Hostal Girasoles and I'm quite disappointed. First of all the price per night is definitely too high, considering that it's only a 2 star hostel and they don't even give you shampoo/shower gel. The view from our window was really ugly and the doors are so thin you can hear every possible noise. I woke... More

Unfortunately the noise from other guests, have disturbed their sleep quality, but we disagree with the adjectives you used to describe our establishment. As for cleaning the bathrooms is the most important point in our work and will pay special attention. Sunflower Hostel is a simple but very warm and above all clean Inn. We hope to serve you in...

This is a nice clean place with very polite, helpful and friendly staff. It's located about about 5-10 minutes walk from Plaza de Armas and closer to the small back streets of San Blas where you can find nice places eat.

This is a great little place, well situated a few blocks from the town center. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Showers are good and hot, and the breakfast is simple but sufficient. I really enjoyed my stay here and would absolutely stay here again.
