Overall this Hostel was good. Location: Right in the plaza and a great location. Close to everything (restaurants, bars, museums, and the market (which was awesome and i highly recommend). breakfast: meh.. nothing good to be had (not that i expected much from a 30$ hostel) Stale cereal, stale bread, and some tang. The tea was good, but it would... More

This hostel is located on Plaza San Fransisco in Cusco - a lovely square within easy walking distance of the town centre, as well as plenty of bars, restaurants, museums and other attractions. The hostel itself has a great lay-out; it's huge and sprawls over two floors, with two central courtyards. It has a nice bar area where breakfast is... More

I ended up staying here for 10 nights. The staff were friendly, helpful n nice. Rooms are clean too. Breakfast was good but it would be better if it's vary everyday. It's located at a very centre area. It would be better if there's someone working at the bar always, because it's hard to get a drink.

Great location, a bit above average in price but totally worth it The hostels shared rooms are spacious as are the beds, lockers, bathrooms and public areas. Warm running water at any time, constant cleansing of bathrooms and... More

Great location, nice staff, showers are hot when it's not too busy but it's so noisy. Guests have to hang out downstairs by the reception because the bar, which has nice sofas and could be a nice hang out place, is really really loud. The music starts at 7.30 in the morning! Staff don't seem to notice that the the... More
