“Best Hostel Ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2010

I've stayed at everything from dingy Paris hostels to Five-Star hotels and I was thoroughly impressed with this hostel. From the moment we arrived at 10am, the staff we gracious and attentive offering cocoa tea to sooth the altitude sickness. Within minutes our room was ready. The hotel was safe, well-managed and frequented by late 20s to 30-something travelers. I also think we paid $35 usd a night for a room with a bed and full bathroom. We stayed for 4 nights.

Location
Two blocks from Cuzco's main square Plaza des Armas

Staff
Graceful and helpful. Made a great breakfast, served it and cleaned up. Attended to our room daily. Stored our bags when we went on our Machu Picchu Jungle Trek.

Tips
- included breakfast is amazing: tea, coffee, orange juice, white buns with butter and jam and egg
- includes free wi-fi and a communal computer
- the humidity is HIGH in Peru, as a result my lap top had a meltdown
- cuzco can get warm during the day but COLD at night, you can rent a heater for a nominal amount from the hostel
- lay low the first day you arrive (even if you don't feel noticeable signs of altitude sickness)

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2009

This is a very nice place right next to Qoricancha and short walk to the main plaza. The hotel is located inside an inner courtyard so it's nicely secluded and very safe. It's a small place with just a few rooms so it feels really cozy. The rooms and the hotel are nicely decorated, clean and comfortable. There's cable tv and dvd player in each room and a good collection of movies in the lounge you can borrow to watch in your room. the lounge also has a computer with internet that is free to use. There's also a local eatery right next door that serves great set meals for only 5 soles. The owners are friendly, but speak very little english so are not very much help with traveller tips if you don't speak spanish.

Really liked the place, but the only drawback is that the rooms do not have any sound proofing. You can hear everyone in the courtyard and if there are other loud guests, they will keep you up. If it wasn't for that, this place would be perfect.

Great location in a safe part of Cusco. Accommodating staff. Owners live on premises. Breakfast, TV, and dial-up internet. Good beds, clean rooms, charming courtyard..
Only cons are sometimes hot water runs out, and rooms by courtyard can be noisy.

Hostal Llipimpac is a lovely family-run hostel recommended to us by the staff at Hotel Inkarri. We were so pleased to find it and wish we could have stayed more than one night. The rooms are bright and warm, decorated in a welcoming and warm colonial style with thick warm blankets, hardwood and ironwork furnishings. The beds are comfortable, the bathrooms spotless and nicely tiled.

Though the location is at first glance on one of the busier streets of Cusco, the hotel is set back in a traditional courtyard and the rooms are well isolated and quiet. Ours looked out onto the sunny garden courtyard. The staff are friendly and welcoming - and though this isn´t usually our style we also really enjoyed relaxing with a movie from their extensive DVD collection. (They have everything from Fiddler on the Roof to Legally Blond and X-Men.) We greatly enjoyed our stay here and would be happy to return.
