Casa de Mama Cusco 2-The Ecohouse
Ranked #46 of 398 Cusco B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 30, 2013

Staff in casa de mama are all very nice and friendly. The owner is esp helpful and accommodating to us, giving us all the advice we need.

Location is not at the city centre. But it's fine as it just costs 3 soles to take a cab there.

Room is clean, but shower could be hotter (given the freezing weather in cusco).

Breakfast is perfect, with eggs and juice. We had a good start every day during our stay in cusco.

Stayed here for a few nights before we done the Inca trail. They couldn't be more helpful. They organized day trips for us and sorted out the bus to Puno (Lake Titikaka). Everythiing went sweat. Thanks again for looking after us.

Mama Mercedes is an excellent host, helpful and warm. Rooms are big, comfortable and clean. Family atmosphere. Mercedes and staff are accomodating and helped with phone calls, lost luggages, restaurant recommendations and activities. Her husband helped us as well. Breakfast is delicious.

Room Tip: Rooms further from the street should be quieter.

It is good place with family atmosphere. Owner is very helpful and warm. She can organise a lot of activities if you need. Rooms are clean and big. 6 soles for taxi from bus station. This was the best hostel in Peru I have ever met. Thank you Mama for all your arrengements.

Pros: The staff were very warm, and did their best to help us with everything from laundry to restaurant recommendations, to weighing our bags. The breakfast is basic but tasty. The courtyard common areas are beautiful and comfortable.

Cons: The location is a little off the beaten path, about 20 minutes from the Plaza de Armas. It's not really that far, but be aware that it isn't on the main tourist drag. We had laundry done twice, and both times there were missing items, so be sure to keep a list of what you gave them (they were able to find everything in the end). The walls are very thin, you can hear everyone around you. Our shower was a bit much for our first-world sensibilities, with exposed wiring in the shower head. The final bill was handwritten on a sheet of graph paper, and payment in cash was required.

We appreciate you taking a few minutes to write about us, your kind words about our service and the friendly atmosphere of our common area and the delicious breakfasts.
It is true that when we did the laundry service we deliver some clothes first and then the others, was because not all were dry at 7 pm, at which time we delivered the first package, we wanted to rush to serve you better and give you what was ready, Miss charged of this service had no opportunity to explain this detail.We hope the next time we will have a dryer machines that hopellly will help us to do the laundry faster.
Kind regards
Mercedes

We stayed in cusco for several days and this hostel was just like our home. The host helped us to handle lots of problems! Our vacation would be a nightmare without her! Thanks you, Mama. This hostel will be my first choice in Cusco!! It's really really nice!!

We were pick up from the airport free of charge and on time. As soon as we arrived to the hostel, we were provided with coca tea. Our room was spacious and clean. The hostel was very quiet and comfortable. Although we only stayed a few hours at the hostel, the bathroom (small) provided us with consistent hot water and toiletries. The beds were comfortable and surrounding neighborhood safe.

The hostel is outside of the tourist area. It's 30-45 min walk to Plaza de Armas. It could be good since prices are significantly cheaper on everything outside of plaza de Armas. Also we only stayed 5 hours at the hostel but still had to pay the full price which is understandable but a discount would of been nice.
