“Best hostel and service I have has in South America!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

I stayed at this hostel before and after machu pichu. This is the most friendliest place, not a party hostel but always stuff going on and people
Hanging out. The staff are super friendly and the lady Maria was just the greatest when I kept getting lost around town. She wrote me out exactly how to get to were i needed to be and what areas were the best. I highly recommend this hostel to anybody wanting a great atmosphere that is clean, central and staff are all great!

Having arrived late in Cusco, I accidently ended up in the Ecopackers hostel. It turned out to be quite nice. The bunkbeds in the dorm have large (220cm) matrasses and the entire atmosphere of the place is really relaxed. For a few quiet drinks, head for the bar area to get in touch with your fellow backpackers.
The hostel will keep your belongings you don't need for the hike to Machu Picchu in a safe place while you're away discovering the ancient Inca trail and culture.

Ecopackers is a big hostel but with the vibe of a small hostel. There are many rooms, private, with 4 persons or with 15 persons. The bathroom and showers are very clean and there are sufficient. Although its an old building, modern architecture is applicated; there are extra doors placed in the rooms to minimize the sounds. The beds are the best I have ever had in a hostel. Big, a very good matress and clean, warm and nice sheets. Every thursday, friday and saturday there is live music. The food is good and you can drink a beer in the bar, watch a movie on the couch, play some pool or play pingpong on the patio. The hostel is located in a street on a 2 minutes walking distance from the main square (Plaza de Armas). Service is very friendly.

Stayed here for 2 nights and I absolutely loved it. The staff is great and very friendly, they'll even party with you. Cesar and Maria were awesome. I also made a lot of good friends and felt right at home. The place is clean and has delicious food and a bar with live music. Overall excellent, highly recommend.

This is a great hostel in central Cusco. Very clean, the colonial style gives it a great atmosphere. Inexpensive and very helpful staff. Has a great bar and when you're not discovering Cusco it's nice to just hang around. Dorms are big but quiet anyway, have lockers and very comfy beds. Would return at all times!

This was my first experience in a hostal and it was great. Extremely inexpensive. Highly respectful staff and guests. On-site travel agent helped us immensely with arrangements to go to Machu Picchu. Wi-Fi on site. Near the center of 10 town convenient for just about anything. Excellent restaurant recommendations as well.

If you are going to Cusco this is the only Hostel you need to stay in. Clean, affordable and a great location! Wish I could take the hostel with me. Take the walking tour with Louis at 11:45 am, you will not be disappointed in his knowledge of the city. A nice plus is lockers in the dorm rooms, ATM on premises and free computers too!
