i only stayed for a couple of nights and i really loved the place. my standards a pretty normal when choosing where i'm staying, SAFE and CLEAN, and i got both and more from this hostal. the rates were great especially compared with the hotel close to the square. its location was quite surprising, only a few blocks from the main square which to me is a big deal.the added bonus for me was the breakfast, really good and overall my experience was simply great.

Internet connection was decent and the rooms were comfortable.

Built in an old colonial house this hotel is wonderful. The staff speak English and offer help constantly. The breakfast included was eggs, fresh blended papaya juice, bread. Tea, coffee and coca leaves were available 24/7. Extra warm blankets were offered but there were wool blankets on my bed so heavy I could not move all night. Great selection on TV. Location was about four blocks from center Plaza de Armas so restaurants were always a quick walk away. One day I needed to use a printer and the hotel manager walked me to the print shop a few blocks away and told them what I needed. Front gate is always locked so security is tight. Huge open courtyards and arched walkways to rooms.
Low season rate I paid was $19.00 a night for a single incl breakfast, all the advice I could ask for and lots of hot herbal tea! Loved this place!

Room Tip: they asked me if I wanted on the bottom floor or upstairs and I took a bottom floor room in 2nd cour...

Only stopped here one night but the circumstances made it a welcoming visit. Arrived back at Conde Meloc Hostal after a hell journey from MP at 2345 hrs to be told that our room had been let out, ouch. After 40 minutes of phone calls the lady said that we could stop here. Got here at 0030 hrs the guy at reception was so helpful and asked if he could do anything to help , sorted room out quick, and left us to sleep' breakfast in morning was lovely and served with a smile , very rare in Peru . All in all brilliant service

Full of character. When we arrived the owners invited us to join in with a party they were hosting for the local village children as a Christmas treat. It was early morning and we were dancing and having fun, eating huge bread buns and hot chocolate. This was all at the hostel and we felt lucky to have been invited, it certainly was a good start to the day. We stayed for 5 nights over Christmas and Miguel could not have helped us enough. He booked trips and stored our luggage when we went to Machu Picchu. The rooms are on two floor set around 2 courtyards. They are clean, have hot water showers, wifi and cable tv. The breakfast is great too, bread & jam, scrambled eggs and pure fresh juice. The only downside its a bit cold, particularly in the rooms so you have to wrap up most of the time but everything else outweighed that. Its also close to the central plaza, only a 10 minute walk. Cusco is stunning and this just adds to it. Miguel is a gem and speaks really good English,

The place has charm. The rooms were chilly but you get to have really good beds, tv and a bathroom with really hot water.
(+)
They leave an extra think blanket for you in the cabinet right away.
You can ask for more pillows if you want
Theres dinning chairs and a table for you inside your room just in case you want to eat there i guess.
Good wifi
Staff was very friendly and helpful and really tried to please you.
Breakfast was good.
Tea all day long =)

Suggestion: i wish they'd convert a room for a common area with books or a tv so that guests dont just stay in their rooms when it rains or while waiting for the bus.

So of course we went to see Machu Pichu but before going we made sure to book the same room when we got back from our trip for an extra day to stay.

Clean, big and very nice hostel. Serves a good Peruvian continental breakfast. Good kitchen access and very nice staff. Free tea all day long. Cable tv in nice rooms with comfy beds and excellent showers.

Rooms built around 2 courtyards in an old colonial building.

5/10 minute walk from town centre but still well located, near to Plateros street, Ave de Sol etc.

Be sure to eat and drink at Paddys in town at least once, well worth it.

Good hostel, fairly priced, a bit classier than some.
