I stayed in the Ukukus Hostel with a group of 14 people from Germany, so we needed a meeting room, huge rooms, lots of toilets and a big citchen. The hostel has all that and more. They also have a huge balcony with a wonderful view over Cusco. The people from the reception and Ronoel were very kind and helped...

All the rooms are very clean. The bedrooms are very comfortable and with lots of space among the beds. There are shelves and lockers as well, which makes our organization easy. The showers are nice and bathrooms clean. The only problem I saw on my stay was the drain in the bathroom that was a bit clogged. The staff is...

I stayed at Ukukus twice in three different rooms. For my first stay I booked a 6 bed dorm (with single beds only, no bunks) and I was first shown to an 8 bed dorm with bunks. This issue was solved pretty quickly. I needed to be up early for a 3am pickup. Unfortunately my room was directly under the...

We had been in Cusco for 3 nights prior and needed a place to stay before heading to Ica the next day. Naturally being backpackers we chose the cheapest option being Ukukus. Location is great, 5 minute walk to San Pedro Markets and a 10 minute walk to the main square. Reception was friendly and helpful with any questions we...

First off, let me just start out by saying I am rarely ever the type of person to spend time writing a review about anything, I honestly never do it, but my experience with Ukukus was just that good. The place is right by the historic center so its not a far walk to anything important. The building it is...

I stayed in Ukukus for just over a week back in April. While I was in Cusco, I was pickpocketed, stranding me in Cusco until a new credit card showed up. I told the staff what had happened and they were totally cool with me mailing the card to the hostel, staying there until my card showed, and allowing me...

If you travel on budget, this is the hostel for you. It cost us 18 soles per bed. The hostel is quiet and clean. They even got a very cute greeting cat. The hostel is located near San Pedro, the largest local market, so you got your meals and shopping covered there.
