We are a group of three well-experienced travellers from all ages. Our time in Ecopckers in Cusco has been extraordinary. The amenities are top notch (clean bathrooms, quiet bedrooms, excellent restaurant), staff is wonderful (thank you Yulisa, Rosana and team for your warm welcome!) and value for money, unbeatable, including the travel agency. We are also very grateful to the staff as they kept our luggage while we were travelling the region and allowed us to have a shower before our final overnight bus ride to Titicaca. Highly recommended place and people; muchas gracias de nuevo!
What more to expect from a place where you pay 15$ for a night? The shared bedroom I stayed in had curtains on each bed so one could have a little more privacy. Breakfast was included, however I could never enjoy it as I left for tours before 5am every morning. Staff is friendly and if you like short ways, there is a competitively priced travel agent, a bar and a restaurant inside the hostel.
I had a pretty good experience in this hostel. Pros: Location is very good, really close to Plaza de Armas. The rooms are big and every bed has its own light and electric plug. The building is very nice. The people working in the hostel is great, all very helpful and nice, from people in the kitchen to people in the recepcion, especially Yulisa and Diego. You can have decent and cheap food in the hostel's bar. Cons: 1) Wifi is pretty bad compared to other hostels, and almost doesn't work in the rooms, so you need to be in the common areas to use the wifi. 2) The kitchen is very small and it can be a bit uncomfortable to cook at the same time with other people. 3) The water bottles sold at the reception are really expensive, so be sure to buy them outside of the hostel. Tours are also more expensive than other agencies and the one I booked through the hostel was not very good.…
If by chance you were lucky enough to stay at eco-Packers, you will have the chance to meet Yulisa & Adriana. Hands-down the best Mojito‘s you will get or even if you’re just looking for a shot of tequila and a cold corona they will be delivered with nothing but big smiles and big hearts.
I enjoyed my visit, and the staff was excellent. The bathrooms and dorms were clean. If you're traveling with other people, this is a great hostel to stay at. As a solo traveler in her early 20s, I didn't find many opportunities to meet other travelers since there were many people older than me traveling in groups.
