This hotel has a great location, however the open courtyard means that it can be very noisy at times. The rooms are very basic, the wi-fi isn't great (you can only get it near the reception), the breakfast is good and the man who helps with it is lovely. It can be difficult to get a shop for a big...

Stayed for 3 nights here. Nice and clean. Recommended for backpackers. Free wifi available and very helpful when being asked to help calling loval tour guide or reccomending nice place to dine. Floor is very clean. Bathroom is a bit mouldy but bearable.

We stayed at this hotel twice with a G adventures tour. It is very centrally located but other than that it has not much else to recommend it. Our friend lost a bag and the staff were rather unhelpful in trying to locate it. The walls are very thin, so you can hear everyone in the neighbouring rooms. Our toilet... More

Unless you are staying here with an organised tour I cannot recommend this hostel. Although the rooms were clean, the showers hot, and the hostel in a good location, both times I stayed here, my rooms had no natural light and looked directly into the courtyard. You could see and hear everything going on in there, and vice versa. Take... More

I stayed here with my boyfriend for four nights (not in a row) as part of a G Adventures Peru on a Shoestring tour. Considering our tour was a budget one, the hotel was fine. Rooms were clean, bathrooms functional and breakfast decent. You can order extra egg if you like, which isn't advertised. We learnt over our trip that... More

I stayed here as part of a G Adventures tour - if you are on the tour don't worry it's fine! If you aren't - stay away! I'd never want to stay in a hotel with tour groups! The rooms were spacious and the beds comfy, the water ran hot and the wifi was pretty good in the central areas... More

We stayed at this hotel twice. The first time the room was ok but it was very noisy as we were next to the lobby. We went to Machu Picchu so left our bags in storage. When we came back two of our bags were put in our room but one was missing. We spoke to the hotel about this... More

This hotel is fairly close to the plaza and is nice enough. Plenty of hot water, but crappy wifi. The room was clean and quite pretty for a hostel, but I think you can do better in the city, even considering the price.

This hostel is a cute abode hidden away in one of Cusco's many little squares and is very close to the main square of Cusco, restaurants, souvenirs and everything you need. Try the fallen angel restaurant on the opposite corner of the square, very interesting place with lovely food but a bit pricey. The rooms in this place are nice... More

positioned only a short walk from the main plaza (though at altitude even a short walk can feel tiring!) the hotel is well positioned. However, that's about as good as it gets. The rooms are very basic, and small; the showers erratic - seems to be luck whether you get a warm shower or not and how long you need... More
