We stayed there for a night before heading of to the Inca trail, but we had a great stay. We stayed on the top floor overlooking Cusco, and really enjoyed that view. The room was clean and comfortable, nice wood everywhere. We were a 5 minute walk from the action. I would recommend this hostel to my friends.

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights and had a fantastic stay! Great and helpful staff, clean room, and perfect location (right by the center). We stayed on the second floor and had a pretty good view of the city. Free coca tea in the lobby and complimentary breakfast. I felt extremely safe and relaxed during my stay. DEFINITELY... More

I had a mostly pleasant stay at the Amaru Hostal. The room was quite nice with a lot of character. The location is good, within walking distance of the main square, Wanchaq station and various other points of interest. Most of the staff were friendly and helpful, and as usual in Cuzco free coca tea was available. I cannot give... More

We only stayed here for one night. This hotel is located right in the center, close to all monoments. We had a clean room with a clean bathroom. The room was rather large and we had no street noice at all, so sleep quality was really great. Breakfast starts at 5h30, but we had to leave at 5h30 so only... More

Perfect location 2 blocks from the main square. Breakfast is better then most places. Rooms clean and comfortable. One small problem is their wifi isn't very strong. Rooms don't have it and the reception area is iffy. Having said that theres plenty of bars and restaurants nearby that will have it. I would definately stay again

I stayed here for four nights and loved it. The location is fantastic in what I think is the nicest part of Cusco with lots of character and charm. I chose a room with a private bathroom. The room itself wasn't that big but it was fine. Breakfast is served in the restaurant (fruit with yoghurt and a sprinkling of... More

This place is awesome! We had amazing customer service from every employee, from front desk clerks to servers, to cooks in the kitchen, to people cleaning our rooms. The architecture of the building has amazing colonial history and is beautiful. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were lovely and clean. For the affordable price, I couldn't believe the value... More

Halfway between the Plaza de Armas and San Blas, this place is ideally located for those who like to walk around and explore the town. We opted for the more expensive doubles and it was worth it because they tend to be on higher floors with more privacy and no foot traffic noise above your head. We stayed in two... More

The rooms were very basic but reasonably clean. Bathroom was quite small. I stayed in the same level as the reception.The location of the hostal is quite good.Staff were friendly at all times. Wifi available only in some places of the hostal.
