positioned only a short walk from the main plaza (though at altitude even a short walk can feel tiring!) the hotel is well positioned. However, that's about as good as it gets. The rooms are very basic, and small; the showers erratic - seems to be luck whether you get a warm shower or not and how long you need... More

The views from rooms on the top floor over the city (like mine was) are brilliant but the rooms on the ground floor have next to no natural light. Our bathroom generally had hot water and the room was clean and tidy. However the beds creak a lot!! Which is very irritating. Breakfast was to an acceptable standard with bread,... More

Don't stay here if you have a choice. We stayed as part of a group so already booked for us. So noisy. It is terrible. Bad breakfast also. Stale bread and bad coffee. The only good thing was the location as it was easy walking distance to everything. The beds are creaky and you can hear everything going on in... More

A rather basic hotel, close to the central plaza. The rooms are adequate but certainly a long way from luxurious. Our room had a good view of the cathedral. The breakfast is very basic but OK for the price. The shower is electric with enough water for 1 person. Then there is a 20 minute wait. The wifi usually worked,... More

I stayed here as part of toucan Tours trip. My first room was a single on the second floor. The room was clean and had what I needed. The shower was perfectly hot enough for me! The second time I was sharing a twin room on the ground floor next to the courtyard. As there are trips setting off at... More

This plaza (hostel) is located in a prime destination and surrounded by fancy restaurants and hotels. They serve breakfast but its a very sad selection and you have to ask someone to cook you eggs. The courtyard is in the middle of the rooms so anyone hanging there and talking, you will be able to hear it from your room... More

We have had four nights here in four different rooms over the course of ten days. The courtyard rooms are very noisy. Every bed squeaks incessantly. Even just the slightest movement causes a ruckus. The hot water was non existent in two of the rooms. Hubby was wandering around the hotel in his towel in an attempt to get the... More

We stayed here for 3 nights altogether interrupted by a 2 day tour to Machu Picchu. The location is excellent in relation to the central plaza and we were privileged to be in Cusco for the Corpus Christi celebrations. The small plaza in which the hostel is situated is quiet and pleasant. The staff were friendly & helpful but the... More

This hotel is really close to Plaza de Armas, which means it has a great location. However the price is about 65$ for really old beds and bad mattress . My back still hurts because I could not sleep very well. Bathroom is very small and towels are kind of old and damaged . I would say this is a... More

This hotel gets by on its group business and is on a steady downhill trajectory. Most rooms are small and dinghy and not comfortable. The breakfast staff of 1 could not manage without help from group guides, staff not happy looking people and not enough of them. Common areas limited in space, WIFI near useless. Was worth paying extra for... More
