I stayed here for two nights in low season, i had the dorm and hostel to myself :) but i can tell the hostel provides a great atmosphere with their common area that has a pool table and bar. Clean rooms, clean bathroom. Staff is very friendly as well :)

We spend there 5 nights in total in a double room with private bathroom. No views - as the window overlooks inner patio (at least in our room). Quality of services was good. Staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast is included but do not count on much.

I recommend people to stay there. There is always a great and lively atmosphere, with big secure lockers, individual sockets by the bedside and good wifi. I wish I could have spent more time in Cusco. The rooms are clean, and it was easy to meeting other travellers especially if you are travelling solo like me. The hostel have a... More

If you want to stay nearby the historic center, plus having some calm at nights this place is perfect for you; located in San Blas Neighborhood it offers a decent place to past the night, but the environment is more oriented to families or people who dont really look for meeting new people. The breakfast is included but is pretty... More

The best hostel experience I ever had. The staff was great, clean rooms and bathrooms, I just loved the hostel, very clean, backpacking atmosphere. Nothing to complain about them. Excellent! Loved this place! Would definitely recommend.” very close to the main square of Cuzco (PLAZA DE ARMAS) Thanks Pirwa Hostels.

A bit overpriced for the level of quality provided, but the employees are very friendly and responsive. Would stay again, if there are not similarly priced hostels available. Beds are comfortable, and view is one of the best in cusco. Simply, a bit too expensive for the value provides.

I stayed here for over a week while looking for a more permanent living space and I found it very comfortable and affordable. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful, and they must unlock the door to the dorms for you each time you enter so it feels secure. Evelyn and Sandra were always generous with the coffee for us... More
