I absolutely loved the atmosphere: the other guests were fantastic company and there is such a homey feel. The beds are warm and cosy, the kitchen well equipped, the bathrooms clean, and there is a wonderful 'library' complete with comfy sofas, tv and fast computers. Located in a less 'touristy' area of Cusco it is still very close to the Plaza de Armas. The hostel is part of a social project, so all the money goes towards this very worthwhile cause, and you really feel like you are part of the whole family. I would recommend this place to anyone, I loved it!
