After traveling to Machu Picchu for the day, I was looking forward to getting a shower and good night sleep. This was my first stay at a hostal, and it was very nice. The room was clean and we had a private bathroom. The only negative was that we were only supplied with hand and bath towels, no wash/face cloths which made showering very interesting. Also we took our showers before going to bed, which was good because in the morning, we did not have hot water to wash our faces. We arrived late in the night and left early in the morning to catch our flight back to Lima. So, I do not know if dinner or breakfast is offered. It was inexpensive and served the purpose of having a clean place to sleep and shower. So, if you need a place for a short stay, I would recommend this hostal. It is also away from the busy center of the hotel district in Cusco and whatever bars in that area, which is a major plus. We were able to sleep without outside loud noises. The owner will call and arrange a taxi for you to the airport.
Note: Be sure to hang onto the white paper returned to you by immigration because you will need it to register at the hostal.
