“Cold but very welcoming”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

Basic accomation but clean and welcoming staff.
The tenant wanted us till 2 am after our Machu Picchu trek for the check-in and kept our luggages for few days.
Very good located even if it hardly rises to reach it !

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2011 via mobile

We got this hostel recommended by a dutch pair in Puno, and without that would never have found it.

It is a very quiet, cosy and neat hostel in a car-free street, with all rooms around a patio. Very decent price: only 40 sol for a matrimonial room.

Free wifi, kitchen and lunchroom.

Located in the trendy San Blas district, only a five minutes walk from the Plaza.

Highly recommended!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2010

My husband and I spent a couple of days in this hostel in September 2010 and we really liked it. The rooms are very basic, though clean with white walls. They are set around a nice courtyard. Simple kitchen is available. The hostel staff is helpful but not intrusive. The only problem at the beginning was hot water, but we figured out that with a smaller stream it gets an OK temperature. Of course, there is no heating in the rooms, so as of September it was quite cool inside. The hostel is nicely located in San Blas, however it requires a little "climbing" up. The place is quiet and safe. It has deposito where you can leave your luggage while going on trekking trips. The quality to price ratio is very good (we paid around 20-25 soles per night per person).

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2009

This is a really nice, quiet hostel, and I enjoyed staying there. It's in the San Blas area, so it's a steep hike up from the center of Cusco, but it's worth it. Clean, big rooms set around a cute courtyard in the center. Beds were comfy & had plenty of wool blankets. The only problem we had was the lack of hot water - most days there was enough to get a trickle of a medium-warm shower, but the last morning we were there we couldn't get any warm water at all. That said, we stayed there a total of 6 nights and I enjoyed my stay, so overall it was a nice place & I'd recommend it.
