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.

This is an awesome place! Good rooms for affordable prices right next to Plaza de Armas. The staff could not have been nicer. Everyone who worked there was so helpful and answered all of our questions. We stored luggage there four times for a total of ten days and had absolutely no problems. It was such a convenience since we... More

New towels daily, nice comfy beds and a hot shower. To top it off, it's nearby almost everything you can want. About a 2 minute wall to armas square. Besides the loud barking dog on the roof at night (bring ear plugs if you sleep lightly) and possible noise from the thin walls (again ear plugs) everything else is great,... More

We could leave our lugage during several days, the room was clean and the service very helpful! The emplacement is very quiet, and very close to Plazza de Armas, restaurants, clubs... Definitely the best place we were in Peru!
