This was our first trip to Cusco and we could NOT have been happier with our hostel choice. This place is located about 10 minutes from the Plaza de Armas which is the focal point for all things touristy in Cusco. The location is excellent because the Plaza is accessible via walking or a 5 soles taxi ride. Three minutes away from the hostel is a local grocery store, so if you need to stock up on water for your tours or just to stay hydrated that is a huge plus. They also sell meat,produce, and all the things you would need to cook a meal yourself in the hostel. In addition to its prime location the owner CoCo is simply amazing. He is so kind and laid back. He seems to truly understand what it means to be a stranger in unfamiliar territory and he does an excellent job making his guests feel at home. He answered any and all questions I had and really made our stay that much more memorable. The room we had was clean, the shared bathroom cleaned on a regular basis and the kitchen had utensils, pots, pans and everything else you would need to cook. This place is an overall win. If or when I return to Cusco I plan on coming right back here.
**Side note: Don't listen to the Taxi Scam artists trying to redirect you to another hostel through fear or incorrect information. This place is legitimate and provides a great experience. Thanks Coco!
