Really enjoyed this hostel and the owner is a really nice German man who gives you loads of local tips for the city. Location is excellent near the main plaza. The price is very good if on budget, we stayed in a private room and he even throw in a heater for free. Decor is unusual but brilliant, watch out... More

Price is at around 20 US Dollars for a double room. The host knows the region pretty well and can respectively will tell you a lot about it ;-) I would... More

Great place! Ludwig, the owner, is very kind and will help you with anything you need as long as you ask. It is really close to the main Plaza, about a five minute walk. The hotel itself is really cool lots of plants and unique trinkets all over. For the price its cheap especially for being so close to the... More

Cold shower, dark room, old sheets and not that clean. You pay 60-70 soles in Cusco and this is what you get. PS breakfast is not provided so for a couple you end up paying close to 130 soles after buying breakfast. Yes, the owner is very nice and helpful but so are plenty of other hostel owners! We really... More

Perfect place!!! Ludwig, the owner, is really nice. The place is in the center of Cusco, its clean, nice and very comty. When the place was full, Ludwig even offered his sofa for free - how cool is that?! I'd definitely recommend the place and would stay there again! Thanks Ludwig :)

The hostel has an odd mix of decor, such as life size frankenstein dolls and piranhas, but it is a great place to stay. Ludvick(sp?), the owner, is a wonderful and helpful guy. He gave us information about the city and let us keep our bags in the hostel when we went to Machu Picchu.

We stayed in Royal Frankenstein during our whole stay in Cusco (5 nights). The hostel is clean, quiet, and very close to the main square. The owner, Ludwig, is very helpful. The decor is perfectly weird.

During our world tour, we have been to many a places... and this is just one of the best ! The price is really cheap, but rooms are really good and quiet. Nights were a bit chilly, but you can hire an electric heating for a small extra. The kitchen is really useful, you can have mate de coca all... More

The German owner of this hostal will make your stay pleasant. Good advice on the city. Very good value for money and centrally located. Bizarre deco that goes with the owner. The rooms are OK but not that comfeortable.
