Let's go bananas is the cheapest hostel in cusco, right next to the city centre, ideal for backpackers! There's always international people in there, hanging out and playing instruments, and the staff are great :) meet jacob, the owner, who will help you out with anything you need and andres, a very nice guy! I had a great time there... More

We found this place looking for tours, very friendly, negotiable, we arranged 2 tours for reasonable price, and even washed our laundry there. The tour assistance was good, with good tour guides. Overall friendly place, good for backpackers, music at night, bar with liter beer for 10 soles. Owners are nice and honest (good thing to find there). Mind not... More

We loved the chocolate crepes here! The vibe is really chilled out, which was ace, and it was on our walk in to town - what's not to like?

I came on a recommendation of a friend and tried one of the Crêpes. Just like my mom makes them at home! The place has a backpacker's atmosphere and is very individual. You can also get sandwiches and Smoothies.

This little place is a hostel/ restaurant however, I can only rate the restaurant. They only did breakfast when we went but that was more than ok with my boyfriend and I. We got banana crepes ( 3 crepes and a banana shake) and avocado sandwich. The menu items come with your choice of orange juice or tea, I messed... More

Well.. I booked five nights here and on the second night my entire backpack was stolen. I was extreamly concerned beforehand as for the entire 8 bed dorm we were only given one key and there is zero security. Anybody can wonder in off the street through a permenently open enterence which is clearly mapped on the main front door,... More

It's easy to get lost in the many torist traps littered around Cusco but I'm glad I chanced upon this gem. This cosy cafe offers delicious and healthy meals at an affordable price. With great music, friendly staff and pretty decent wifi, it's an easy place to hang out for hours on end.
