The hotel provides you what you need, nothing more, nothing less... They aren't very kind and helpfull, but quite cold, despite all the others Peruvian peolpe met there, the breakfast was poor ( at least at 4.30 am ). We can't reach the wi-fi by our room but in the cmmon area outside it. If you need only a place... More

First of all, they moved our open and spread-out luggage from one room to another. We had been booked here through a travel agency for two nights. It was just the two of us, but they put us in a three-bed bedroom for the first night. When we came back from our second day at MP, we had been moved... More

Hostal Las Rocas was recommended to us by our tour guide. It is a the top of the main tourist street and over looks the river below. The hike to the Las Rocas is steep, but all of Machu Picchu is hiking and climbing, should not be a problem. I found the locate acceptable and the people very helpful and... More

We stayed at las rocas hostel one night before visiting Machu Picchu And it was one of our best nights in Peru. The room is very confortable, very clean and we had an amazing view of the river. It was more like a good hotel than a hostel! breakfast is simple and is included in the price and is not... More

We recently spent 4 nights at Las Rocas and it was excellent value for money. We took the advice of other travellers and decided not to book in advance but to look around until we found something we liked. Up near the entrance to the hot springs we found Las Rocas. We asked to see a few different room types... More

We stayed here one night, and well, we saw it as more of a necessity. If you are backpacking your way through Aguas Calientes on your way to Machu Picchu and on a budget, there aren't many great options. Travel light (leave your big backpacks with the hotel in Cuzco) and don't leave anything valuable in the rooms. Rooms are... More

The booking was done through a tour operator in Cuzco. We arrived in Aguas Calientes at 10pm. A matrimonial room is quoted at $40. Well, no towels, no toilet paper, dirty. The last time have seen such a room was 15 years ago in Uganda in the middle of nowhere. The staff is willing, but they have no idea of... More

Granted, the price is very cheap but in the grand scheme of things - and as the say hindsight is 20/20 - this hotel is not even "acceptable" I stayed there with my girlfriend after doing the Inka Trail (which, to be honest, it's not all that it's cracked up to be; a better 'free' trail is found behind the...
