The good thing about Prisma is that it's in the centre of Cusco. It's south of the main plaza in an area that's more local. I did enjoy the neighbourhood, with lots of people bustling about, even at night. There is a local supermarket within walking distance where I picked up water and fruits and snacks.
My travelling partner and I stayed here because we'd be travelling with G (Gap) Adventures. G Adventures has their own desk within the hotel so that's a bonus for last minute questions. You'll notice that groups of people get up early or come back late, and that's the G Adventures tours leaving and coming back. If you're with G Adventures, there's also a storage room where you can leave your big backpacks for the week while you're away hiking the Inca Trail. The room is locked and you get a numbered tag for your luggage, so I did find the security for my bag a positive thing.
The hotel staff were ok, neither helpful nor unhelpful. Breakfast was also okay, some buns and jam and deli meats. It's very okay as a backpacker hotel but lacks charm and character. If you're okay with a place to stay for the night with no fuss and extra's, this would be the hotel. But if you wanted something a little nicer, I'd suggest Casa San Blas (where we stayed before coming here).
