Even if you don't mind the rudeness of the staff you will never get over the filth! The room was really dirty and it was impossible to stay in it. No consideration of safety what so ever... plugs in the bathroom uncovered.

The double rooms are a bit small, but comfortable nonetheless. Very friendly and kind staff. Marlon is very sweet and really tries to help his customers. The breakfast is decent, you have to ask for eggs, but they are very tasty! Good location. Would recommend!

We loved this hostel! The location is good, not too close to the main square so it's nice and quiet. Breakfast is filling, with eggs, cereal, bread and more on offer. The staff were fantastic, Magda is a major asset to Marlon's House in Cusco - she's brilliant! Wifi can be a bit flaky and it gets a little colder...

the room was good, location was great. The hot water was inconsistant. 5 minutes into my shower, the water would get cold. Also, it was often difficult to find someone at the front desk. I rang the doorbell (there's no other way to get their attention) several times, and often waited over 10 minutes before I just left. breakfast was...

Marlons is good value Hostel. We opted for private en-suite, which was small and lacked storage space. It is suited to short stops for backpackers, but we had longish stay and are not backpackers. The main problem is that all the rooms open onto a central courtyard, (which is very colourful), but means that you can hear everyone coming and...

Stayed here for a few nights to acclimatize before trekking to Machu Picchu and it was great. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful and the location was pretty central to the main plaza. They had quite a breakfast spread every morning and even woke up early the morning of our trek to feed us some breakfast and call us...
