Lovely staff, really helpful in providing information, quiet but a very relaxed atmosphere and still only a short walk to the Plaza de Armas. Lovely outside courtyard which is great for chilling or eating. Well stocked kitchen. Beautifully designed rooms, same theme as the restaurant and you can tell so much thought has gone into every part of the hostel.... More

Stayed here for almost a week and it was worth the few soles they charge you. The hostel is quiet, the beds I've been sleeping in in the dorms are amazing, you're never cold and I at least had never any problem with the hot water in the showers. The wifi works good and the included breakfast is just enough... More

I stayed here on recommendation by a few of my friends. I talked them down to 15 solis for the 6 person dormitory, which I thought was fair for cusco. There is a large kitchen with stove and refrigerators. The wifi works great and there are computers available for use. The beds were comfortable and had feather comforters and blankets,... More

My partner and I stayed in Hostal Magico by the recommendation of Aldea Yanapay (the school we were volunteering at) because it was close to the school and the profits go to the school. I´m am disgusted to find out that through booking directly with the hostal we were charged double the price that was on hostelworld even though we... More

As the old saying goes; you get what you pay for. This place optimises this. For the cheapest place in Cusco, you get a cutely decorated and comfy room (each room is uniquely designed) and seperate shared bathrooms. It can get pretty cold at night but you can get a gas can for the clay pot heater in your room.... More

It´s very cozy, the staff is great and it is very cheap. It is not far from the center and the San Pedro market. Sometimes there´s no water and the electricity doesn´t work, but it returns after some time. We recommend it!

Quite far away from the main square. Inexpensive. Commun room and kitchen are great. You have to wash dishes outside though (not great during rain season!) Bathrooms could be cleaner at times. There was mould on my room's ceiling.... It still is a nice place to stay, but you might keep looking.

We stayed in Hostal Magico in Cusco for 3 nights,but just because we didn't have time to search for smth better. The place is way to expensive for its value, because the showers are very dirty and stinky, In fact,it was very difficult to have at least some kind of shower, because they managed to run out of water twice...
