I had the best time at El Grial. I stayed there for more than 10 days. The staff was super helpful and gave fantastic suggestions of places to eat and visit and directions. They had very clean room, hot shower, hot tea, and the most delicious breakfast with fresh fruit, yogurt, bread and butter and jam, ham, cereal, milk juice.... More

We were wandering round this less busy/noisy/dirty part of town, made a passing enquiry and moved from another hotel. The place was great and the host Amira couldn't do enough to help us. They looked after our luggage whilst on the 4 day trek and also let us keep it there and use the lounge on the rest of the... More

this hostal was a very good pick in walking distance to the main square, we were there in total for 3 nights and didn't except much but were served very well. very clean rooms and a nice breakfast. The day we had to fly back to Lima, they even got up earlier to serve us breakfast, how great is that!!

I stayed at El Grial for one week. This was my first time in Cusco and found staff very friendly and helpful. The hostal is very clean and secure, my bags were stored there when I did the Lares trek. Great warm shower on return! I enjoyed the San Blas location and would stay at the El Grial again. J... More

Clean, comfortable and well located. Stayed in a cozy room with a very good bathroom, with a great relaxing shower. Breakfast was OK, yet simple. A short walk (and a stairway) from the Plaza de Armas.

The best hostels in Cusco Hostal for me was the Grail, and has all the amenities you can bring to us, such as security, and their breakfast buffet is very nice because they are varied each day, such as the high Natural Orange Yogurt cheese Ham and Eggs Cereals taste of passengers and their rooms are also very typical and...

We stumbled across El Grial by accident and it was all we could have asked for! Amira was a perfect hostess; kind, attentive and helpful. Our room was large, bright and comfortable. The breakfast was extensive and good. The location is a delightful cobbled alley without traffic but close enough to everything you could want. We felt it was excellent... More

Staff was very friendly and when they were fully booked they helped us to find another place to stay. Breakfast was basic, but fine. Room had a nice hot shower. The patio was a bit noisy when people were walking the stairs.
