Cons and pros about this hostel: Cons: Very noisy. Crying baby, dogs barking and a loud rooster very early in the mornings. We were not told about the included breakfast, we found out by a coincidence our second morning. Stayed in a quadruple room in the back which was not well isolated and extremely cold. In the common bathrooms there... More

Great little hostel if you don't mind keeping it basic, the hosts are simply lovely, warm and friendly. We had a large group of 17 and they even came and picked us up from the airport free of charge. Comfortable beds, warm showers and great location. Can be a little cold in the evenings.

What a wonderful hostel!! Our one and only complaint is the tiny kitchen, but the hostel is close to tons of cheap and delicious food options so it wasn't even a problem. Staff went above and beyond helping us, and organized our tours for us. We had one issue on the tour to Machu Picchu which was immediately solved when... More

I stayed at Casa La Samblena for a couple nights on my way to Bolivia. The hostel is family run and has a cozy feel to it. Compared to other lodging in San Blas, La Samblena is quiet and comfortable. Getting a good night's rest will not be a problem. Although the rooms are basic, they are tidy and comfortable.... More

My friends and I stayed at La Samblena as a bit of an accident, actually. We intended to make reservations at Hostal Sambleno (2-3 blocks away) so that we were staying in the same place as my brother and his wife, but ended up here instead... it was a great mistake! Although it is a bit of a trek up... More

We stayed two nights at La Sambleña and enjoyed it very much! The hostel has a perfect location just next to plaza San Blas. The family running the little hostel is very friendly and helpful! Rooms are nice and clean and the internet connection is excellent!

Nice, cheerful, clean place - great if you're backpacking! The guys who run it are lovely, very friendly, free brekky is better than what we got in another hostel and the Internet is pretty good for Cusco :)

to be honest, La Samblena is a good place to stay. Ok, yes!.. its high up! but it's a nice way of "cheap" exercise!. Basically, the service was good since we got there, the owner helped us with our backpack, he gave us a nice "mate de coca" (tea) as a "welcome tea" (tradition). The room was nice, it's not... More
