I stayed at The Point Cusco with two friends and would definitely recommend it to other travellers!
Location: The location of this hostel is great - it is within short walking distance to the main square, where you can find many restaurants, shops and travel agencies (to book one day tours, etc).
Room quality: I stayed with two friends in a 6-bed male and female dorm. The room was simple, as expected, but more importantly - the beds and floor were both clean. There are medium sized lockers for each person to place their belongings in (bring your own locks).
Atmosphere: This is definitely a party hostel and it is the perfect place to meet other travellers - there were always people hanging out at both the indoor and outdoor communal areas. The hostel organises events every evening and night (written on a black board at the front, where you can sign up). There is a bar upstairs (beer pong table included), which was busy and fun all three nights we were there.
Service: The staff are friendly enough, but would not necessarily go out of their way to be extra helpful. We had no complaints.
Other: Wifi connection is good. There are lockers next to the reception with power points inside them, so you can charge your phones/cameras without having to watch over them the whole time (bring your own locks). Some reviews have complained about the sleep quality they received - but we stayed at a room towards the back, near the outdoor area, and had no issues.
