Clean room. Strong wifi at room. Wonderful breakfast. We could take hot shower at night. Night view from window was amazing. Our beds had heavy blanket, so we slept well. Staffs were really kind. Even though we need to go up the stairs to reach hostal, it was really more worthy than price. This hostal located close from touristic place,... More

This was the first of the many hostels we stayed at during our trip through South America. The staff was very cordial and helpful, the beds were clean and comfortable. The lobby has high skylights that creates a beautiful setting for breakfast or coca tea.

This is a good option in the San Blas area of Cusco (less than 10 mins from the main sq). The area itself us lovely with lots of places to eat close by. The room we had was fine with a comfy bed and a good shower. The staff were friendly and helpful. One slight letdown was the breakfast. When... More

I stayed here for 3 nights. Was not happy with the room provided first and was promptly changed. The staff is helpful and nice people. They make an effort to work with you. Its a very small place and that adds to the charm. The bed was comfortable, rooms clean and hot shower. Tea/hot water provided at all times for... More

I stayed in El Grial for 3 nights. I felt like I'm home from the very first moment. I booked this hostel because of the good reviews and I can definitely recommend this one. The people don't work there because they have to...they really offer you an excellent service and do everything to give you a pleasant stay. They give... More

Charming place, relaxed atmosphere (probably not for you if you're after a party hostel). A short walk from the city centre, in a bohemian neighbourhood. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. They found another hostel for me when they were full (at a discounted price), and waived the cost of a night's accommodation when I had to go... More

We had pre-booked 3 nights at El Grial several days in advance due to it's great recommendations on TripAdvisor, but already at arrival we strongly considered to cancel. The room we were offered was at ground floor, 2 meters from the breakfast tables, had no windows, suffered from very loud noise from a generator, and from the light opening in... More

The staff, the staff, the staff! Amazing sweet and service minded people. I got very sick during my stay and had to extend the stay almost day by day and also I had to go to the hospital. I ended up staying there 12 nights in total. The manager Amira and her staff were so caring and helpful and I... More

I've traveled to Cuzco many times for work and holidays and this is the best hostel I've stayed at so far. The hostel is well-located, very clean, with comfortable beds and very friendly and friendly staff, including Amira and Jose from the reception, who were very helpful throughout our stay there. It's also a great value hostel; it definitely exceeded... More
