The hostel is a super cosy warm place to stay in Cusco. Just a perfect experience, vibes, crepes and location. The staff is very nice and welcoming and. I can't wait to come back :) They offer a big common area, a beautiful garden and restaurant so if you travel by yourself it is a great place to meet and...

We stayed here twice. In dorms and a double room. The rooms were nice and clean. Staff was helpful. Breakfast was good as well. Two improvement points are the cleanliness of the bathrooms and the lock on the double room was tiny and it was broken. There was no locker in this room either.

I found this place randomly when strolling in San Blas and what caught my attention first was the name but when I entered and saw how beautiful is the place and that they sell pancakes I fell in love. The food made me happy and the stuff is very nice. Ate there already 3 times.

I stayed in the Chancay private room with bath both before and after my 4 day Inca trail trek, and it was perfect for my needs. If there are people talking in the court yard area, it can get noisy. It is true that it can get a bit chilly in the room without heat (I stayed at the end...

The hostal is very nice and atracts many French backpackers, probably because of the crepe in the morning which comes with the price-includd breakfast and the creperie on second floor. Dorms are nice & comfy, private locker with an inside the locker electric charging option, hot water all day. Staff is super friendly and helpful. The area in which the...

I could not recommend this hostel more. The staff was incredibly accommodating and friendly, and talking with them about their adventures was one of the highlights of the trip. They provide crepes every morning for free for the guests and they are absolutely delicious. They even made sure we had some the morning we left for the inca trail, despite...

Hola lovely staff of La Bo'M. This review is over 6 months overdue but here goes. I had originally booked to stay here for two weeks whilst taking a Spanish course nearby, but in fact ended up staying for a total of about a month with a friend (with little excursions in between). The best thing about this place is...

My husband stayed in a private room with our own bathroom and the room was very basic. The bathroom was tiny (neither of us could sit straight on the toilet because our knees hit the wall) but it had what you needed. We loved being in the San Blas area, beautiful art and jewelry, and far away from the annoying...

My girlfriend and I stayed in the La Bo'm' for several nights in a 4-bed dorm and when considering the ups and downs I would rate the hostel as average.

We chose this hostel because of the great recommendations and ended up being totally disappointed. First the good things: The staff is friendly and helpful. We felt really welcome there.
