We booked a triple room for four nights in mid September. The room was spacious and very clean we always had hot/warm water. The owner, Senorita Ruth (and her staff) were very helpful with airport transfers (Ruth herself picked up one of us). Her English was marginally better than my Spanish but we managed to get eveything sorted. They also... More

We enjoyed our three night stay last week at the Kuska Hostel. It was our last place to stay while traveling through Peru and other than having a cool room (which is very typical of higher elevations- so bring warm bed clothes) we were very comfortable. I was getting over a head cold and after all of our trekking, my... More

Find another place in Cusco. The hotel manager is completely unorganized. I had booked this place months in a advance but two months before our arrival I requested to change a room and received confirmation of the change via email. I emailed in Spanish and spoke to the manager over the phone in Spanish. To my surprise when we arrived... More

The hotel was very nice, clean and spacious. The hotel has a roof balcony that has a great view of Cusco and the Plaza de Armas. The hotel is within blocks of the plaza, but is up a pretty steep climb to reach it. You'll get your heart rate up during the walk. One way back to the hotel from... More

Very nice, clean and the location is excellent. More importantly, Ruth, the owner and all the staff are lovely! They provide amazing service, to the point that we felt always at home. Highly recommended!

Location is excellent, has excellent views of the city, beds are very comfortable and the breakfast is standard but the reason i am giving this full marks is because of the super service and hospitality that Ruth and her staff showed. She spoke very little English, yet did everything she could to make our stay as comfortable and great as... More

This was my second time at kuska and I can only say that the service is amazing. I just love the whole staff and the owners. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a nice and affordable place near the plaza.

We stayed in Kuska Hostal four nights in late August and early September, a day before our trek, two after and one night on our departure back home. This is a new family owned and operated hostal just opened past spring. We have booked this accommodation directly with the hostal e-mailing with Marines, a young lady who is fluent in... More

We actually found this hotel thank to the owner's niece. We were welcomed by Luna (owner) who is generous and really friendly. The rooms are clean with hot water and on top of that cheap. Breaksfast is included. The hotel is well located (2min from Plaza de armas). Luna will also give you loads of tips and recommendations. She actually... More

After several trips to Cusco, I would rather stay at Hostal Kuska than anyplace else in Cusco. Wonderful rooms, very clean, fine large LG TV, high speed internet, excellent location about 1.5 blocks from Central Plaza. Tremendous views from terrace and some rooms, and very friendly manager Ruth. Excellent. There is no swimming pool or spa, although i could not... More
