This place is great if you are looking for a real party hostel. We booked in for two nights and really enjoyed them but after two nights I was definitely glad to move on. The breakfast was only ok but the bar menu was very good. We had booked a 4 bed dorm form 3 of use and we're willing... More

I can't speak for staying at the hostel itself - stayed with a family in Cusco - but wound up visiting the bar more than once. Brilliant pub atmosphere, the best I've seen in Cusco, especially for tourists. Good food, and winds up a blast every time I've been, though I'd hesitate to stay the night. You won't be getting...

If you want to party, this is the places to be. with great bar staff, fun atmosphere, loads of parties and deals it really is a party hostel. The wifi is awful, and if you're wanting a good nights sleep then here isn't the place to be. Great location, though.

They have a nice and big place, with an exciting pub and lots to do inside, like ping pong table. The location is not so good. The problem is the noise at nigth. The rooms for 2 with bathroom are side by side with the pub, separed only by a thin glass door. If you have any intentions of sleeping... More

Again, stayed in this hostel as friends were. Not as clean as the La Paz Wild Rover but attached bathrooms in dorms were cleaned well once per day (as opposed to several times a day). I stayed in a 4 bed dorm upstairs which had no windows so was quite dark and dingy. I couldn't get wifi to work anywhere.... More

We stayed here for 2 nights after completing the inca trail. The hostel is in a good location, withing walking distance of all the main tourist attractions in Cusco. We stayed in a 4 bed dorm. The room was spacious with comfortable beds. We were far enough away from the bar so we could sleep without the noise keeping you... More

This is such a well run hostel! This is the place to be to meet people and to party hard. There is always something going on and the weekend is not to be missed. The food in the bar is really good from breakfast to dinner and there are specials too! Great location with laundry facilities across the road and... More

Spent a few nights here before and after a trek recently - this is a party hostel, hands down. If you're looking for the smallest semblance of peace and quiet outside the hours of 4:00am - 5:00am, then stay elsewhere. If you want to meet a bunch of crazy people, have a whole lot of fun, and not sleep very... More
