Good place to stay just 2 minutes walk from Plaza de Armas, so easy access to everything. Our room was clean, breakfast was good and the staff were friendly and helpful. The hostel did not appear busy so not many people around but that was good for peace and quiet. Recommended.

2 owners are very friendly and helpful, but other employees are crap to be honest. Don't put your expectation too high, it's close to the centre, quiete and clean room (the floor is very squeaky which is a kind of standard in Cuzco).

The employees are extremely unfriendly and lack of hospitality amazingly . They need be trained a bit or the owners should rise their wage if it's necessary.

You need to confirm everything twice for ensure quality. If you have a problem, talk to the owners at the reception.

Jacaranda Inn was a great place to stay - a home away from home.The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hostel was clean and had a lot of character. A big plus is you actually get sleep! A lot of people going out on our Inca trail trip complained that their hostels were too noisy and they had not slept. It is a 2 minute walk from Plaza but there are no hills and Cusco is very safe to walk around. We stayed here again when we came back from the Inca trail. Definitely recommend as a chill out place - you can always pop into town if you want to dance or party.

A great place to stay. Owned by a very helpful and friendly woman. In a good location, easy walk to main square, market etc. The water was always hot, the Internet worked perfectly with a strong signal, and they served a wonderful breakfast each morning. Rooms are well equipped with warm blankets aand clean.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2011

the hostel bears no resemblance to the pictures or reviews on this site, all I can imagine is that they have seriously let themselves go. There are no common areas, all the courtyards are full of junk and open to the elements (many other hostels in the area have sensible put roofs on theirs to enable them to be used all year round). Our room was cold, with damp patches on the wall and a hole in the floor right outside the door. There was at least hot water in the shower but it was temperamental to say the least.
The worst thing was the staff - we arrived at a weekend and the staff on seemed to know nothing about the hotel. They were unable to give us the password for the wifi, there was no breakfast, which was supposed to be included, they locked the door and left reception unattended for hours at a time, which meant that we often had to wait outside banging on the door for ages for someone to let us back in. The bathroom wasn't cleaned for the whole weekend, which meant the bin was overflowing with soiled tissues.
A woman appeared on Monday, who appeared to be the manager, and things got slightly better, but there is no escaping the fact that this hostel is a far cry from what the reviews suggest and there are plenty of other better hostels in the same price bracket in the area.
Avoid!
