I liked this place mainly because we booked far in advance and got a really good rate which was amazing for the location.   It is very central and only minutes walk away from lots of nice restaurants and a 5 minute walk away from Plaza Armas.  The staff especially the young man who works the late afternoon/evening shift and...

Many thanks to Bertrand for his time and excellent advice on where to go in Peru and a special thank you to Victor and the other staff members who do their best to accomadate you. Our kids enjoyed the company... More

This hostel is great! Located in the beautiful San Blas area of Cusco, this hostel is cozy, quite and clean with delicious aromas of the bakery below to wake you in the morning. They have a great breakfast which includes a variety of fresh bread from their bakery (try the quinoa bread). The staff are very helpful and friendly. The... More

We stayed here after doing a 4 day trek to Macchu Pichu. The rooms are a bit small, but the place is very clean, the staff is friendly, and breakfast is included. They also leave you with a bag of homemade cookies, which was a nice touch!

I spent a total of approx. 4.5 weeks at this hostel. Each time I would leave for an adventure and come back to stay, I was welcomed back like family. My rooms were great-both had amazing views of the city. I was even kindly upgraded for the same price as a lesser room, when there was a mistake in my... More

We loved waking up to fresh bread in the mornings, the friendly staff and the comfortable rooms. Location is great too - on a quiet street in the best neighbourhood and across from an amazing vegan restaurant! I am not giving 5 stars for two reasons. The first is that we had a room called 'Fire' that was underneath another... More

The smell of the bakery is amazing! Fresh cookies to enjoy all the time and freshly baked bread for breakfast! Victor and staff are really nice and very helpful! The wifi is the best we have had in South America! Be careful when booking a 'double room'. We were given a twin room which the hostel considers to be a... More

Pantastico is a really cute hostel. The bakery is delicious. The only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is that although we booked 2 beds in a dorms weeks I'm advanced and when we got there they moved us from a dorm into a matrimonial room. It's also 12 dollars a night but there are other hostels that are... More

During our stay in Cusco we ate breakfast at Pantastico almost every morning because it was so good. Specifically the bread was delicious, the first good bread we have had in months while travelling in South America, and the sandwiches were great. It was nice to have some good vegetarian options as well! They also have delicious pastries and lunch... More
