I stayed at Pisco and Soul for a few nights before and after a Machu Picchu trek and Eduardo and the other staff could not have been more helpful or friendly. Other than that the beds are comfy, and the showers are the some of the best with respect to heat and water pressure Ive experienced in my 4 months... More

Perfect location comfortable beds with warm blankets and a heater that actually worked! Only con is that the bathroom smelled bad on occasion from the pipes (sulfur or something?) and the top bunks are too near the ceiling-- you'll hit your head if you sat up. Also they charged me usd$5 for sleeping on a bottom bunk even though we... More

I stayed at Pisko and Soul for a few nights before a trek in June 2014. Ronnie and Fani were very helpful and accommodating and the breakfasts were great. The location, in the San Blas district, is perfect. I stayed in a room adjacent to the street, but noise was not an issue. This place has heated rooms and hot... More

Stayed for two nights including rocking up at 5am in the morning very accommodating letting us sleep on couch with blankets. Brekky is nice and the private double with shower was comfortable for my girlfriend and I. Bit cold in the common area but otherwise easy wifi and helpful staff :) make sure you do the walking tour in cusco... More

I've stayed at many hostels and so far, none of them made me feel "at home" as much as Pisko y Soul. The staff is absolutely outstanding, the entire building is spotless, the showers are very hot, there are two wifi routers so it's always fast, and there's complimentary coca tea 24/7! We were genuinely sad to leave this wonderful... More

I really loved my stay at Pisko & Soul! Yuder, Ronnie and Fani were always helpful, and were always willing to give me a helping hand. They made me feel at home and I really appreciate all they did for me: from taking care of my luggage while I was traveling to make sure I was not having more headaches... More

Great little hostel with welcoming staff and cosy atmosphere. I took a private room and paid $25 / night...which included breakfast, wifi, hot water, and an overall great experience. I had been sick the days before coming so I felt really well treated by the staff there, who helped me with laundry, booking an extra night, etc. In terms of... More

I was a little disappointed by this place, having read the other reviews. It was warm, cosy, friendly and atmospheric, but given that the rates are not bargain-basement (especially for private rooms as the price is per person) I thought that presentation could have been better. There were no bedside lights, and only dim ceiling lights even in rooms with... More

We stayed in Pisko&soul for a total of 5nights with our Machu Picchu trip in the middle we were able to leave our main backpacks at the hostel. Firstly the staff couldn't have been nicer, great breakfast every morning. Oscar and Eduardo were so so helpful with pointing us in the right direction of everything we needed. Great location and...

I can't speak highly enough about Pisko and Soul. We stayed in a private room at a very affordable rate of $32 USD per night. The facilities wee extremely clean. The cost of the room also included a well prepared breakfast of eggs, bread, jams, avocado, tea, and coffee. What really made the stay special though, was the service of... More
