This is a good enough hotel for traveling on a budget. It is not fancy but excellent location and clean. With good attention of personel. I speak Spanish so maybe it was easier for me to comunicate with them but the service was quite well. I was at a room upstairs that had the on window facing the corridor..so therefore... More

Okay, as previous reviews stated the decor of the rooms is a bit outdated or rather simple BUT.... The rooms are very clean and maintained daily including fresh towels and toiletries. The wifi is great, they never run out of the hit water - day or night and the location is beyond good. Why is the location perfect ... Well...... More

This hotel is conveniently located half hour by taxi from the airport. Good place to camp for a couple of days in Cusco on your way to Macchu PIcchu. The staff are helpful, friendly and understanding. They gave us tips and contacts with local tour agencies for us to rent a car. We had a great time. Although the rooms... More

The hotel is a gorgeous old building a few mins walk from the main square in Cusco. Desk and hotel staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Our matrimonial room was on the 2nd floor, facing the street, so there were a few issues with street noise; mainly early morning cars and the seemingly ubiquitous all-night long bursts of fireworks (which...

A small budget hotel, which is clean and very friendly. Location is perfect (which also means bit noisy), staff genuinely friendly and fun to talk to. Breakfast bit simple but more than enough for me. Room was big and clean, hot water in abundance, heater for the cold night. Decent wifi (much better than expected). Loved the atmosphere and I...

Stayed at this hotel as part of a youth group performing humanitarian service in the Cusco area, so I did not expect a five-star hotel. No shampoo, hairdryers, or other appliances provided in the rooms, but they do give you a small bar of soap and a clean towel every day. Although the rooms do not have an irons, the... More

We stayed in a nice room with a balcony facing the street. The room was clean and the bathroom was small but nice. The hostal is in a great location and the staff was friendly. For the price, you can't go wrong.
