Reviewed August 24, 2012

Once again amazing stay at Ecopackers! I keep coming back to it... Hostel with real beds, incredible atmosphere and so close to the plaza. I will always recommend it, staff is great, location is unbeatable, has the best cost - benefit percentage around. They will help you with your visit to Macchu Picchu in advance, thats REALLY helpful.

Room Tip: Book Macchu Picchu in advance (Ecopackers provides this service)

It's a really nice hostel located 5 minutes from plaza de armas. It has everything you need and the breakfast included it's great. Inside the hostel has also a company tour where I booked all my tours and was great. Very reliable!
The receptionists are very cool, Denis and Angela both  helpful, easy going and they will provide whatever you need. Thanks guys !

The staff at Eco Packer are absolutely the best! Especially Angela, Julio, Cesar, Cindy, and Denis. It has a great atmosphere and food. Most important hot showers! It has great amenities like game room, big screen tv, ping pong, and mate de coca!

Apart from a few recycling bins in the corner of the courtyard, there is nothing remotely 'eco' about this hostel, at least that they made me aware of. Something as simple as having a purified water system for guests so that they don't keep having to buy plastic bottled water would have been good. The staff aren't the most enthusiastic people on the planet either, but helpful enough. The building itself is lovely and the beds are super comfortable, which is just what I needed. And the TV room with the fireplace offers a cosy warm place to curl up in the cold evenings.

I stayed at Ecopackers for 2 nights and it had a great location and good facilities. I don´t think it has a kitchen for guest use (I´m really after a kettle for some hot water) but I may have just missed it. There also seemed to be a bit of a water leakage issue in one of the bathrooms, but reception is responsive to requests for cleaning. They give you a warm bed, hot shower and free welcome drink at the bar (party-friendly hostel, but also sleep friendly). I would recommend a stay here.

Ecopackers had a really friendly staff, arranged my salkantay trek, good breakfast, nice place in general. indoor bar, and a really good vibe, its not a party hostel, but its still easy to meet people there as a solo traveller. and HOT SHOWERS. which was great.

the downside, is that everytime i ordered food there, i had to ask twice, because it wouldnt arrive. seems like theres one cook for a lot of people.

id really recommend it.

We stayed at Ecopackers for 2 nights and it we´re probably the best nights of our trip so far. Great beds, nice and clean bathrooms and nice people around. On top of that there is a lot to do at the hostel, like playing ping pong, watching tv, relaxing at the patio, using internet and there even is a really good restaurant that serves a good breakfast. We would like to thank Denis and Elena for they´re good care. They will help you with all your questions or problems.
