Resbalosa went out of their way to be exceptionally helpful after some confusion with our booking. Nothing was too much trouble and we were so pleased we would not hesitate to stay there again. The hostal itself is clean, comfy and centrally placed for access to the city. Highly recommended.

Cheap and central Peruvian hostal. Very basic accomodation. Small rooms with a bed and not much more. Rooms were clean, stayed in several different rooms at different times. Very cold at night, i recommend bringing warm clothes and a sleepingbag for backup. Speaking spanish is highly recommeded. Not just at this hostal, but in Peru in general. I was told... More

We stayed at this hostal for three nights and it was a great hostal. We payed 50 soles for a matrimonial bed in a tiny room with no bathrooms and no TV, which we were totally ok with. The shared bahtroom was just in front of our door. It's a really good price for Cuzco, the hotels are so pricey... More

I would rate this hostal as 2. First of all, for a hostel, they charge a little expensive. I've been to other hostels before and they were nicer, cleaner, with proper internet connection, people spoke in English. I can't complain much as its a hostel, meaning a budget place to stay for backpackers. Just that it looks nicer on the... More

Much cheaper than other hostels in Cusco, with acceptable facilities and a great view over the city. You have to hike up lots of stairs to get there, so don't go here if you struggle with altitude and lots of hiking up hills. But it's worth the effort if you can manage it.

I only stayed here for one night because I didn't like it very much. It is more a hostel for couples than backpackers and I was the only one staying in their "dorm". The dorm was right next to reception so you could hear people all the time and to go to the bathroom you had to walk past reception... More

We stayed in this hostel for 5 nights between the 7thand 17th of July 2015, as an Outlook group of 16 people (13 students and 3 teachers). The hostel was very welcoming and the staff were so helpful on every one of the 3 occasions we checked in. The staff were particularly accommodating when it came to breakfast -delicious fresh...

Staged through Resbalosa 3 times in 3 weeks whilst on expedition, each time happy to return. Booked direct from the UK first time, then even got the same rooms for the group on subsequent visits. Hostal perched above the city, so be aware of the climb back up if newly arrived in Cuzco, as 3500m altitude! (ps Machu Picchu is... More

I spent two nights here before my Salkantay trek and one night after. The family run business is pretty attentive, especially the mother and father. The rooms are mediocre. I had very hot water with great pressure. The room is cold but the bed is furnished with lots of blankets which I love and make for a great night's sleep.... More

My adult daughter and I stayed here our last two nights in Peru. We arrived in the late evening without reservations, after finding Casa del Inka full. We had already climbed up the grueling stone steps and this place was next door. Room 106 had a full and a twin bed with private bath. Unlike what many previous reviewers have... More
