Staff was the best part of this hotel. So friendly! Location is pretty good and rooms are decent. Yes, it is noisy but you will be so tired that you will sleep anyway. Had no issues with water or heat.

We loved our stay in this Posada. The location could not have been better, the staff were wonderfully helpful and kind, the rooms clean and beds comfortable and warm. We stayed here twice and the second visit felt like 'coming home'. Highly recommended!

This hostel isn't the greatest, but you will get a good night's sleep and it does have a hot shower. However the shower pressure wasn't very strong and the breakfast was pretty poor. Other than that, we had a good stay here. The wifi was really good as was the service. It's located in the middle of town just a... More

PROS: The woman at the desk (can't remember her name) was soooo nice. We had so many questions and things to book last minute and she helped us willingly and with a smile.

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..

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

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.

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
