Staff are helpful and speak English though. Laundry is roughly 3 sole a kilo. The lane the hostel... More

Found this gem when searching for a nice view without too much of a walk. Room was cute and comfortable with hot water, big window, and space to spread out. Breakfast included but extra options offered. Front desk speaks English.

The view of Cusco is wonderful, the staff are super warm, friendly and prompt to assist you with anything. The showers are always hot, the breakfast is good, the wifi is fast, the rooms though small have beds that are comfortable and the hostel is kept very clean. A great hostel for the price.

Ended up staying here before doing the Inca Trail for 4 nights and then another 2 nights when we finished. Great little hostel. Staff were very kind and helpful. Breakfast was simple but delicious but you could upgrade to some delicious egg dishes for pennies. Coca tea was free and plentiful. Beds were also comfy (6 bed dorm). Washroom was... More

Stayed here for Four nights total, 2 nights prior to Inca Trail and 2 nights after. Overall it is very good as far as hostels go. We stayed in a four-person room (there were three of us) where we shared the room with a fourth for the two days prior to the Inca trail and had the room to ourselves... More

Traveling as a couple, this was a nice private room in Cusco. Amazing views of downtown, rooms were large, breakfast was good, overall a good value. The neighborhood is quiet and only a short walk to downtown.

We stayed here before going on our inca trail trek. We had a private room with private ensuite. The hostel is set in a beautiful location high on the hills looking over Cusco. For 15 soles, we were met at the airport by their staff and taken to the place. It's on the good side of town, and an easy... More
