Lovely room with common patio. Friendly staff. Extremely overpriced tours sold at the hotel via Harrys tours. We booked a tour to maccu piccu and were placed in a very poor hotel with no room key and wet blankets. Furthermore we were charged almost triple the actual price for train tickets because he uses a middel man who stands at... More

I stayed in Mirador del Inca for two weeks in November. Overall a great hostel. The location is unbeatable. Only minutes from San Blas but still located on a quiet street. The rooms are spacious and mine had the most amazing view of Cusco. Plus the beds and pillows are surprisingly comfortable when compared to other hostels of similar price.... More

One more time I am reassured that the ratings of places are not as useful as they are supposed to. We found this hostel by occasion, just browsing the hostels around San Blas neighborhood of Cusco. The owner, Maria, proposed good price (80 soles/28 USD) and showed the room. When I saw the view from the room I literally was... More

Starting with the positive, the hostel is located in a very nice part of Cusco and does have brilliant views over the city. Unfortunately thats where the goodness ends. The rooms were not clean, Wi-Fi and TV unreliable, windows were not secure or well insulating. Breakfast was basic with very poor quality bread. Showers either did not work at all... More

I spent 3 nights at this hostel, beds ok, comfortable and clean, but the rest quite dissapointing. The hostel is ran by a family that seems to be taking every opportunity to get you overcharged. They charge 10% for paying w/ credit card; you need to ask for breakfast cause there is no one ready to serve it: breakfast quite... More

I stayed in El Mirador for 13 days. Deciding to stay for this period after seeing the amazing view from their top rooms, and the beautiful rooms for the price I was told. Already having brought all my bags (I am staying in Cusco for 7 months so quite a lot of luggage) all the way up to their highest... More

This hostel is well located in San Blas but there are better ones in the neighbourhood than this. We stayed in a double room which was ok, although the bathroom could be cleaner. In general, we felt there was a clear lack of attention to details from the staff: broken curtains on the windows, no shower curtains in some bathrooms,... More

We were forced to stay a night in this dump after the hotel we booked somehow lost our reservation. The two owners were said to be friends. I doubt this was a bait and switch, and was mostly an honest mistake, but it was too late at night to look for a new place and we stayed. I don't know... More

There are tons of places to stay in San Blas, Cuzco, but this is one of the cheapest we could find and it was an ok value. It was fairly big with patios and a lounge, but the kitchen was not usable and it's website makes it seem a lot more beautiful than it is. That being said, the rooms... More

Dear members of this travel comunity, my boyfriend and I are on a 2 months trip in Peru. Peru is a marvelous country. We are a very cheer couple, but now we feel quite bitter. We already knew that accommodations in the Mirador del Inka hostel were very basic. Still we were very surprised about the lack of proper service... More
