Very charming place. One of the best quality/price ratios in town ! The staff is nice, breakfast is OK, on a roof with a nice view ! They booked for me a nice trip to machu picchu for a low price. I recommend it !

For 60 soles the night ($20 US), we got a lovely room on the top floor with a private bathroom, internet, breakfast, and hot water. It was super quiet (just a few other guests), but the place is adorable and the seating area on the top floor has great night and day views of the city and is a perfect... More

The staff are helpful and owner speaks English. Rooms are small, basic and clean. Small shower, hot water not always available. Nice deck area and set up for breakfast, but no fridge and you get warm evaporated milk for your coffee. Cable TV only showed snow on screen. Old computer in reception area.Only three blocks from main plaza, OK going... More

I'll get straight to the point. Pros - Location, Staff/Owner are very nice people. They go out of their way to make sure your stay is a positive one. You can't beat the price. A great value for what you get. Don't expect a 5 star hotel. Hot showers and a safe San Blas neighborhood. Wifi works for the most... More

This little Hostel in Cusco is a little gem of a place for the budget traveler. Rooms are cheap, clean, well maintained and there is usually an included breakfast in the price of the room. The owner is dedicated to your comfort and well being and will go the extra mile to make sure your stay is comfortable and secure.... More

This hostel is located in one of the highest part of Cuzco ! Nice and quiet rooms. The town center is not far away but you will have to walk on the steep streets of Cuzco.But you will have a nice wiew at the hostel top floor for breakfast.

In a city that seems more busy with taking your money than providing you with genuine hospitality, Hostel Arcano is was a much welcomed encounter. Raul, the owner, recently bought the hostel and is doing his very best to provide you with a homely service. The hostel is not fancy. You won't find anything fancy here (for example flat screen...

After staying in a number of bad hostels, we moved to this hostel for over a week and received a very good service from friendly and helpful staff. The hostel was great value for money and the rooms were clean, comfortable and tidy. They also offer free walking tours and were very good at suggesting places to visit off the... More

Our debit card has been stolen in our room, only the housekeeper came into, but the owner never wanted to recognize that we did not loose it but someone stole it in our room. The owner is rude and arrogant. When we arrived, we asked for the internet access, we needed it for work and they told us the access... More
