Stayed there one night as my other hostel was fully booked. Not impression at all. Good breakfast options. But Messy common parts ( kitchen is horrendous ). Our private bedroom came with a surprising view. Pictures will speak for themselves

The hostel is located in a quiet neighbourhood and not far from plaza del armas. It's clean and the beds are really nice, they have PCs for common use and the internet works most of the time. Breakfast isn't outstanding but at least you can eat as much as you want. They have a nice TV room which came in... More

They start by telling you the 12% booking fee is for hostelworld.com and so charge you that again (not true, it's a freaking deposit). The private rooms are close to the breakfast room so get ready to hear some noise in the morning (or at night...right before that early morning tour, yay!). The carpets on the floor are mostly stained.... More

I had the opportunity to travel to a lot of beautiful places and to meet a lot of wonderful people. The majority of these wonderful people I've met in the hostels I have been staying in. So far, one of the best hostels ever, has been Che Lagarto in Cusco. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful, the rooms themselves... More

I stayed in Che Lagarto Hostel Cusco for 5 nights. It was a good place, near to the historic center and the central square. It was too easy to find. It wasn't expensive enought, but the breakfast was nothing special. The staff were always very polite, and always very busy. Sometimes, there was a problem with the security, so you... More

Only stayed here for one night after Machupicchu and didn't spent much time in the hostel. Stayed in a twin private which had one double bed and a single bed. It also had a TV with some channels in English and a bathroom with reliable hot water. The hostel is in a good location, right next to Plaza San Francisco... More

My experience at this hostel was quite bad. Like some others reviewers said when I arrived I had problems with my bookings. I booked through hostel world and when I arrived they made me check my email to see which rate I had to pay. Then they tried to put me in 8 dorm when I had booked a 6... More

Overall, this is a very good hostel which served our needs well - very friendly staff, shower with hot water, clean, TV in the bedroom, access to the internet & WIFI and a very comfy bed! Staff were very helpful, even popping out to a shop late at night to get us shampoo & soap when we realised we'd lost... More
