The staff are exceptional and will do anything to assist. The rooms are comfortable and the breakfast is a nice touch. The common area is very friendly...... but Travel organised by the hostel is VERY overpriced.

The patio is nice, the room have hot shower (Yay ! ), even if you can easily heard the persons speaking in the corridors which between the late-go-to-sleep and the people waking up early can be difficult, the accomodation and breakfast are okay. However, My friend and I do not advise you to take excusions from him. Everything went wrong... More

Stayed with my 10yo daughter. Good location, within 10 minutes of Cusco centre. The hostel had a good mix of rooms, we stayed in a 4 and a 6 bed dorm, and had the 4 to ourself with private bathroom - luxury! Breakfast was the best we had during our 3 month SA trip. Staff were exceptionally helpful. Courtyard area... More

We stayed in the dorm with 4 friends. Nice clean beds. Although dorm for 6 people can be small with 6 backpacks. Nice staff, good breakfast but be on time for the breakfast they don't really refill it. So if you want to enjoy it get up early. Only one toilet and one shower, toilet is near the sitting area...

We booked Marlon's on recommendation of friends. We arrived at 2am and were glad to be let in the building but arrived to no record of our booking, even though I had confirmation from Hostel Bookers. The notebook style booking record clearly doesn't work as the guy had no idea if there was room or not so ended up turning... More

Overall impression ok. I'm a bit disappointed that I couldn't give it a better review. First off, if you went to the website and saw the stay longer for 2 days you get a reduced rate deal....they don't honor it. Why I don't know since it's on the website. They said they couldn't do it since the owner wasn't there.... More

Marlon's House is a very good hostel for a very reasonable price. It's located in a quiet street about 5-10 minutes walk from the main square. The staff is very nice and helpful, even if you don't book the tours with them or when you arrive in the middle of the night. We had a big room with a clean... More

This was my first experience staying at a hostel. Overall, it was pretty decent considering the cheap price. We stayed there for two nights during the last week of May and returned for one night in June. Airport Pick Up - Marlon's House provides airport transportation for $10. The drivers were on time. Location - Very close to the main... More

We stayed for around 7 nights in Marlon´s House, Cusco at the start of May. It was a really good base to explore Cusco. It was a 5 minute walk into town and the staff were really helpful at showing us on the map where everything was! We had a private en-suite room, which was clean, spacious and always had... More

We spent 3 nights here and felt that the room, staff, breakfast and travel agency were adequate to good. The location was great and we felt safe. We did run into an issue with some boots left on the tour bus. Although we called and they arranged to pick them up, in the end they said the bus company threw... More
