I stayed at Orquidea for three nights and couldn't recommend it highly enough. Edu and all the staff were wonderful and are happy to help with whatever you might need. The hostel itself is lovely with great views of the city. The room in which we stayed was cozy, the bed was comfortable and, most importantly, the hot shower was... More

Although this took us most of the morning to find - wow! Was it worth it! The owners are so friendly and welcoming and the room and beds are so comfortable and quiet. We were welcomed with some delicious Coca tea and a personal tour of the hostel. The rooms are very warm and beds are very comfortable

AWESOME!!!! The walls are stone bricks (only one wall), very clean beds, and even includes a fireplace & heater! Very soft and comfy beds! Perfect hot water for the coldness outside. The breakfast is fabulous, too. THERE IS AN AMAZING WI-FI CONNECTION! There is also a very small tv in-room. The blankets are cold but it's still comfy. The only... More

This place is more like a hotel than a hostel. I stayed for three nights with a friend, very affordable, close to the plaza, quiet at night. My room has good views of cusco and the mountains behind, a private bathroom with hot water, soap and towells. Decent wifi. The bed is mega comfy and warm. The staff have been... More

I cannot say enough positive things about this hostel. The staff were extremely friendly, and very helpful with information about tours and helping arrange taxis. The included breakfast every morning was excellent, fresh juice, tea, coffee, bread and eggs. All very very good. The rooms were large and clean, bathrooms the same. Beds were changed every day, and new towels... More

Like what other reviewers have said, it's more like a hotel than a hostel. I went to Cuzco with 2 other friends to hike the Inca trail, and the room that we got was essentially 2 bedrooms with 1 bathroom and a tiny dining area, all enclosed. We had our own key to a rustic little 2 bedroom suite. The... More

I really liked it here. Far enough away from the main square to be quiet but close enough that it's a very easy walk. We found the staff extremely nice and happy to store our bags for us etc while we went to machu picchu. Room was basic but comfortable - I liked it. Breakfast was also basic but was... More

This is more like a hotel than a hostel, on a very quiet street. Breakfast is tea/coffee, bread, juice, and eggs made to order. Our room was spacious and kind of funky, with multiple steps and the only window in the ceiling of the middle room (space for 5 people to sleep in 2 rooms with a small room with... More

When I saw the stairs I had to climb to get here, I wasn't all that happy. That changed quickly when I was greeted by friendly staff who checked me in and helped me with my bags to my room. The room was super cute and has a spacious bathroom. Bed is super comfortable which is just what I needed... More
