Don't create expectations of a dream hostel. The building is old. Actually it's a classic ancient building of Cuzco.
Despite of that, the staff are just AWESOME. As the manager, as it's staffs are very friendly and gentle.
The cleanness is ok. The bathrooms, are mixed, but it doesn't mean that are bad. They are very clean all the time.
The beds are old to, but also clean. The breakfast is simple, but ok. The only thing i didn't like was the carpet in the rooms... it was not good to me.
The scotch bar is very cool and has fair prices.
All the people i met there were polite and cool.
An amazing place to make new friends.
I consider it my home in Cuzco!
