The hostel building itself is fine but the hostel is cold and one of the dirtiest hostels I have been to. No sheets on the duvet on my bed and the bathrooms are disgusting with overflowing bins and grubby floors. Not as sociable as other hostels we have stayed in either. In a place where there are so many other... More

Colonial Hostel was a very good experience overall, the rooms and the bathroom were clean, the staff was helpful and the wi-fi was a little slow but it worked. The only thing is that the bar, that is right in the middle of the hostel, is open every night and the music can get a little loud if you are... More

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.
