My 5 week stay in Peru used tents to 5 star hotels, this is clearly somewhere in the middle and the 4 stars indicates much better than I expected for the price - 4 nights US$100 (£75) which would not even have got you one night at the hotel next door.. Location is superb, just round the corner from the... More

The location is excellent, just a minute walk to Plaza de Armas. The staff were helpful in organizing taxis to the airport and to ruins outside of Cusco for a decent price. Many good restaurants are within walking distance where it is so close to the square. We went trekking for 5 days in the Andes and they held our... More

Thank you very much for your words, I'm not sure what happend with the hot water, because we have one sistem for the hole place so it doesn't really matter if in your room there are 2 or 6 people, the hot water should run the same for all of you, sorry you didn't let us know to manually double...

This hostel is around the corner from Plaza de Armas. There are great restaurants near by. The rooms are a little cold but comfortable. They have very hot showers and a decent breakfast of bread, jam, cereal, tea and coffee. The staff are fantastic.

It's only 2 blocks from Plaza de Armas. Kitcken, hot water, free wifi. When you go to machu picchu they will keep your luggage for free!. The staff is very gentile, speaks english, and they give you information for everything you need. I would recommend it. The day we leave they let us stay in the lobby until 2am (even... More

Happy overall. Not too happy though as we had problems with hot water 2 nights. Last night one of us couldn't actually have a shower because the hot water was going off every 30 seconds. Despite informing reception they didn't seem very interested to fix the problem and said it was working fine. I was going to remove an extra... More

Not the best hostel/b&b stay we have had - however just remember the price you are paying for and your expectations would need to be adjusted. The location is very good - close to everything. Especially with Cusco, you would want somewhere close, as you might end up having high altitude sickness and walking too far can be a challenge.... More

My wife and I stayed for 2 nights in a private room, with double bed. This hostel was very basic, and I would summarise as follows: Pros - good location - hot shower and clean room - reasonable and polite service at the front desk Cons - very average breakfast (we couldn't eat it) - the bed was so worn...

Very happy for our choice. Great and helpful people working there. Nice atmosphere, close to the main square, good breakfast and clean room. Wifi is a bit sloppy but it works and it's free. Thank you.
