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.

My husband and I stayed here on recommendation from a friend in Lima. It was nice enough. Simple and clean but nothing special. The staff were very friendly and the location was great but it was a bit expensive and their tours offered were very pricey,

I´ll start by saying that for the money you are getting what you are paying for. We stayed here for 4 nights. It´s cleaner than it looks mostly because it needs major updating. It is closely located to the Plaza de Armas but it is on a tiny street which we called dog alley. Tons of dogs everywhere which I... More

The hostel itself is beautiful and boasts the only roof top terrace as far as you can see with a fantastic view and the mountains and the surrounding city. The rooms are wonderfully clean, comfortable and well furnished. The... More

A good family run business - very friendly and helpful.The hostel is clean and well maintained and within easy walking distance from the Plaza de Armas. Good breakfast. Very good value for the money - I've booked to stay there again when I return to Cuzco in a couple of days time.
