My first few nights here were great. I had a private room for cheap and it was peaceful. But the receptionist messed up my reservation once i returned from aguas calientes and only booked my room for 2 nights, not 3, so they kicked me out of the private room and stuck me in a shared dorm room right next...

When I arrived into Cusco I was so exhausted I just went to the first Hostel I could find that had private rooms. I ended up staying at Bright Hostel for a few weeks. It's the cheapest private room I could find in Cusco with such a good location and comfortable room. I stayed in a private room with a... More

Do not trust presentation pictures on the different websites : rooms are bad, beds also - staff ok but not great. When we tell that to the staff They do not understand and maintain their view. Good point / not far from the main square of the city but 50 soles for that is very expensive (double bedroom )

First, we spended 2 nights in this hostel. After 2 days in Machupicchu, we came back there for one night and, finally, after 4 days in jungle, we came back at this hostel. It was still a good price and a good time ! Staff is very friendly. The rooms are very basic but the beds are very comfy. We... More

Booked a room in advance based on a recommendation that it was cheap but good for the price. However, the room was small, dark and poorly maintained.The ensuite toilet had lots of damp. There was no odour when we entered the room, but once the shower was used (no ventilation in the ensuite), the bedroom started to smell progressively worse... More

We never had hot water, during the entire stay. We had specifically booked a private room with personal bathroom, but they couldn't fix the water so they told us we had to shower in a shared bathroom. I didn't mind too much, but the problem was that after trying several of the bathrooms and finding that only one worked, I... More

do NOT stay here. we did a full day trip to machu pichu and whilst we were gone the equivalent of $400 USD was stolen from my bag which was locked. someone must have come in and picked the lock because they knew that we weren't going to be there all day. worst part was we only realized the money...

I found this hostel on a hostel booking site and was primarily looking for the cheapest place. You get what you pay for. The location is fine, a nice distance away from main plaza to avoid noise but not too far to walk, so that's good. The place was charmless. The reception guy was nice enough but offered nothing in...
