“Very Clean hotel!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012 via mobile

Our expectations weren't high after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor but we were pleasantly surprised. Although it is basic, it is very clean, rooms are better than some others that we stayed in Peru including a reputable chain of hotels. There was hot water, internet in the lobby, close to absolutely everything. Staff was helpful. Would certainly stay here again!

We only stayed in Agua Calintes at this hotel so we could see Manchu Picchu in the morning as the sun was rising. I would not recommend wasting your time or money on visiting Agua Calientes if you don't have to. The rooms were marginal but more expensive than in other places in Peru. The breakfast was lame. Coffee was nescafe. The hotel restaurant was bad.

This hostal has a great location in Aguas Calientes, being a few yards from the Machu Picchu bus station and ticket office. It is also only a few minutes from the train station, although most of Aguas Calientes on the main road/train line is not far from anything.
The rooms are basic but clean. The heater worked and hot water was available all day which is a rare occurance in the town, based on the number of comments from other travellers.
The breakfast was very basic. For the money, it was reasonable value.

The one plus about this hotel is its location which is only 20 yards from where you catch the buses to Machu Picchu. The negatives: no hot water for the shower in the evening or in the morning; the electric heater did not work; there was a leak from the toilet; the breakfast was very poor - some uninteresting buns and jams; the internet was very slow. For the money we paid (part of a package), you could definitely do better.

Cute little hotel a 5 minute walk from the train station and just next to the bus station that takes you to Machu Picchu. The rooms are basic but clean, staff was helpful, breakfast simple but good. The river is loud outside but I imagine that would be true of most hotels in the area since you can still hear the river up on the mountain! I'm sure that the bus station below would be loud too if you wanted to sleep in, but since we only stayed the night before Machu Picchu, we were up before the busses started running.
Staff kept our bags safe while at MP and rented us a room for little cost to shower in before our train back to Cusco.
