We were a group of 7 and rather than move us to a separate property, they opened up another single room. Very helpful. Beds were straight forward. Just call if you can't find it as they've posted new numbers on all of the buildings but no one uses them yet.

Don't let the name "hostal" food you into thinking it is a youth hostel. This is an affordable, comfortable, and clean little hotel that is a good choice for seeing Machu Picchu. It is close to the railroad and close to everything in Aguas Caliente (but so is everything else, as the town is quite small.) The staff is friendly,... More

I'm not sure if they charged me twice for the room so this might change the review once I look up my statement online. 45 dollars for a river view room with a hot shower was perfect after our 4 day sal kantay trek. Perfect location next to the train station. Especially after you are so tired from walking. They... More

The hotel offers you a nice view of the river. It's located right in front of the rail way. You just have to walk a few blocks to get to the bus station to go up to MachuPicchu and also the train station. You won't have wifi in your room but it's available in the lobby. The room I got... More

Aguas Calientes (aka Machupicchu or Machupicchu Pueblo) has you, and it knows it. If you want to beat the Cusco day trippers to Machu Picchu, or hike up, or have the place (relatively speaking) to yourself for a few hours in the morning, you have to go through this town and spend a night. There has to be better than... More

we had booked into Adelas Hostel a few doors down but when we turned up they had filled the room......(and then fed us a series of stories about why we couldn't stay there). They took us to Payacha and after much negotiating we managed to get them to honour the original booking at the other place. The room backed onto... More

In general it was good, except for something. The place it is at Aguas Calientes (Hot Water) however we didn't have HOT WATER at all. This was really bad because the water there is freezing. You can not take a bath without HOT WATER. Beside this, I can not complain Excellent breakfast, Excellent customer service. The view of the river... More

Small, nice hotel with quite basic facilities., and well located. Best was my room facing onto the Urubamba river - didn't think I was going to sleep that night!!

Room itself was cleanish, however the whole place smelled damp and musty. Very sparse. Stayed one night before transferring to a different place. It's on the train tracks. We loved the train but it did feel as if the train was coming through the room. Like an alien abduction. Lights, noise, but like I said, we liked that part. Had... More

We stayed one night in a triple room before heading to Machu Pichu. The hotel is very central, right by the train rails and close to restaurants, shops and main square. Rooms are basic but are comfortable and have all you need for a short stay. From the rooms you can see and hear the river Urubamba which makes it... More
