It's a quiet hostel on narrow road up on a hill. It offers clean rooms with TV. There aren't any good views from it, at least not from our room. Beds are comfortable and shower is working well ,the same with toilet (that's important in Peru). The only thing I didn't like were breakfasts. They were very cheap.

Fist off, this is a hostel style accommodation, not a star rated hotel. So, that is what you must be wanting to book this place. So, I am rating this for the type of place it is.

Casa de Mama Cusco Recoleta , is as you well says a place of rest and relaxation in Cusco, our close to the main square location also means being located in an ancient street of the historic Cusco, narrow street and history, part the historical heritage of the city , so it is intangible.

We stayed at Casa Mama during a Thanksgiving trip to Cusco and Machu Picchu. Easy place to book. Great, quiet location close to the main square.

The commodities are basic. The place is very clean, don't get fooled by the alley street. Price is fair, I paid USD 35$ / night. Where this place shines is the staff. Warm welcome, cordial service, listening and very good English speaker. Enjoyed my stay, felt safe.

We are delighted that our service, cleanliness and warm hospitality have been highlights during your visit. As you rightly says, the road can be narrow, as befits the historic old city center, but inside the hotel is very cozy and above all very clean. We hope to serve you again when you visit our city again. Thank you so much... More

This place is relatively cheap. However still overpriced for what you get. We didn't find the staff to be helpful, the rooms were very basic, noisy and there was only luke warm water in the showers. Breakfast was OK though.

You are paying $50/night or less and it includes breakfast: it isn't the Ritz. That being said, I loved staying here. The staff is helpful, the breakfast is good, the room is clean, and the hotel is in a great location with regards to the rest of Cusco. Don't be alarmed by the ally you have to walk down to... More
