We stayed for 5 nights and it was a wonderful place to call home during our time in cusco! Waking up to snow capped mountains with a spectacular view of the plaza it was hard to have a bad day! The family who run the establishment are extremely friendly and accommodated us with our every need. We were able to... More

This is a favourite for me in Cusco. I stayed here in 2009 and was thrilled that it is as charming now as it was then. The breakfast area has a very beautiful updated terrace, and the view over Cusco is simply breathtaking. The rooms are very clean, and beds are comfortable and cozy. We were there in the cold...

We stayed at Resbalosa for 2 nights while in Cusco. My first impression of the place was quiet good - the view of Cusco off the terrace is amazing and the building has a lot of a character. The front staff were friendly and helpful. The location was excellent. The hostel was very cold at night - Make sure you... More

Staff was friendly, great terrace views where you can have breakfast .. Getting to the hotel is a steep walk from plaza de arms, so you better be in shape. Don't expect hot showers or a refill on your coffee. But overall great bargain for the price .

It is a basic service hostel, but you get more than what you pay for. Close to where the action is: Plaza de Armas. The owners are very friendly and kind and they always try to keep you comfortable. I have visited Cusco many times. I have tried other hostels, but I always keep coming back.

We stayed here for 4 nights and have mixed feelings about the place. Pros; - very cheap - close to the Plaza - owners were friendly Cons; - really uncomfortable beds - lots of loud bars/clubs around - sound transmits very easily - if others on your floor are awake, so are you - no kitchen (despite one being advertised)...

I've been staying at the Resbalosa for over 15 years whenever I visit Cusco. I have stayed in other hotels, but I keep coming back to the Resbalosa. The owner remembers my name every time I show up (unannounced), even after 4 years without visiting her. This is a budget hotel so there aren't many frills, but the rooms are... More

I stayed in this hostel for over a month during my time in Cusco. Obviously I chose to stay so long for a reason. The Plaza is only minutes away but the hostel is still located on a rather quiet street. Although nothing is really quiet in this area of Cusco of course. The staff is friendly and the hostel...

My family and I (6 adults) stayed in the 6-bed dorm room for $8 each/night. We stayed here 3 times for a total of 7 nights. The rooms and bathrooms are clean, the owners are friendly, the location is great and the view from the terrace is incredible. The stairs to the hostal are tough, but great practice for the... More
