“a cozy spot in Cusco”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

Hostal El Labrador is a friendly and cozy hostal located in a quiet neighborhood not far from the Plaza. Estela, the owner, will do everything in her power to make sure that you have a happy time in Cusco, you are in good hands. This hostel is Estela's dream and she works hard to make sure that her guests are well taken care of and comfortable. The rooms are cozy, heaters are available, hot water, hot breakfast and they will stow your luggage while you head of adventuring.
The staff, Hener, Maritza and Diana are attentive and cheerful. Good laundry service.

Just 7 min off the plaza, warm place with kind staff, super fast internet, decent breakfast with incredible view on the surrounding mountains, hot shower,

Just one thing to improve: a bit confused with the reservation book/ they had trouble telling us if they had availability or not.

My friend and I really loved it here. It is very sweet, located in a quiet neighborhood right next to Plaza de Armas with lots of restaurants and cafes spread around. There is an amazing view from the kitchen of the cities and the surrounding mountains. The rooms are nice, big comfy beds with plenty of blankets, and a clean bathroom with hot shower. The people owning it are super-nice, very helpful with everything, and also gave us a discount for staying as long as we did. I had a short stay at the hospital while in Cusco, and when I came back I was met with a hug and a cup of tea. I would definitely stay here again should I go back to Cusco!

Great staff and location, clean, great breakfast if you want it and close to Plaza de Armnas, only a few problems, very noisy, when people come into the hostal, you can hear everything that is said, when people are in the dinning area on the upper level and talking, it is as if they are in your room talking, that is how loud it is, people walking the stairs to their rooms are noisy and many times you are woken up at night or very early in the morning. When I stayed it had been raining very hard on a few days and water was entering the hostal that was cleaned quickly. As for the staff, they did do a good job, but it seems they were in a relationship and spent a great deal of time watching movies on their laptop or the hostels desktop computer, they also would could dinners in the kitchen late at night and at times very noisy, not sure if they still work for the place, beside these issues, overall the place is good for 1 or 2 nights. It should be noted that these issues took place over 1 year ago........

Room Tip: It is best to stay in the rear of the hostel so that you are far from the entrance and kitchen for l...

We had a fantastic stay here, the hostal in located in the old part of town - a fantastic location.

The owner is so helpful, she couldn't do enough for you. She helped us work out the best way to do Machu Picchu (as we were driving).

Breakfast is great, fresh juice, REAL coffee, coca tea, eggs, bread & jam.

Bedrooms are really clean, bathroom was small but super clean.

The only critic was that it can be noisy as all bedroom windows face out onto reception/central area.

Would highly recommend.

The service was excellent. Location is great. Breakfast very meager, coffee with either bread or one egg. All the rooms surround the dining area and you can hear every little sound made by guests and staff. Seemed to be quiet from 11PM until 5AM.

Room Tip: Downstairs rooms seem to be a bit quieter but ours had sewage smell. We also stayed upstairs where t...

This hotel is an outstanding place to stay. You have an amazing 270°view over Cuzco and the mountains in the main restaurant. They will give you free mate coca unlimited which is fresh and delicious. The rooms are very clean. The personnel is really attentive. I remember, we were back at the hotel at 1am and the receptionist kindly made us something to drink and for free.
The owner is such a warm and kind person. I had travelled among 27 countries and this is hotel is definitely one of the best that I may recommend.
