I've stayed at El Grial the last 4 times I've been in Cusco & can't imagine staying anywhere else. Yedira & Fernando , the owners make your stay wonderful. The staff is friendly & the rooms are clean & comfortable with hot showers & private bathrooms. The location on San Blas is good & close to everything. Lots of cute... More

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.

The staff at El Grial is so helpful and friendly we decided to spend Christmas with them! We stayed here twice on our journey and Amira (especially) made every effort to help us with every aspect of our trip. The advice was always accurate and enormously helpful. The standard of service and cleanliness is very high, just what you would... More

We traveled Peru for two weeks and this was by far our favorite hostal. The price is very reasonable and the service is outstanding. They speak English, offer breakfast in the room rate and provide a wealth of knowledge about the city and region. Rooms are basic but they have hot water and a safe in every room. BEST Wi-Fi... More

The Hostal El Grial is a wonderful little oasis in busy Cusco. It is clean, quiet and cozy, but very close to some great restaurants, such as the Green Point - a fabulous vegetarian restaurant. We are very grateful to the owner who went out of her way to help us with a stray dog that we found on the... More

My family of three stayed at El Grial for 6 nights. It is a small lovely hotel just up the hill from the Plaza San Blas and close to Plaza de Armas. We enjoyed this place very much. The staff was helpful and friendly, the buffet breakfast was generous, including eggs and there was complimentary tea all day. Our room... More

With my girlfriend I went to visit Cusco in August 2013. After looking around for a good and affordable hostal we found and decided for El Grial, and were not disappointed. The host, Eloi, was very helpful, for example when he guarded our stuff while we where visiting Puno. The rooms and general areas were nicely decorated and clean, the... More

I loved this hostel. The rooms are very confortable, the breakfast is excellent and the staff is very nice. Although you have to climb up some stairs to get there, it is very near Plaza de Armas (about 10 minutes) and it is a good way to get used to the altitude, especially if your are doing the Inca Trail...

The Peru Lonely Planet recommends this hostal but with a brief entry that describes the building as ‘rickety’. This does not do El Grial justice. We stayed 6 nights in early-mid May on three separate occasions as we came and went from the Inca Trail and a rainforest trip. The staff, some of whom had reasonable English, were exceptionally nice,... More
