I stayed at Mama Simona three nights, one before heading to Machu Picchu and two after we came back. They were super nice since first contact via email while making reservations. A friend of mine showed up unexpectedly in Usco and they accomodated both of us in a room the first night. They also stored our big backpacks while we spent two days in Aguas Calientes.
Beds with amazing matrsses, duvets, hot showers, nicew breakfast, free coca tea all day long, internet and a fully equipped kitchen make it a great place already. It's location is also great if you don't want to walk forever to get anywhere.
The most amazing thing though was their staff who after I had already left Cusco for Lima contacted me to say I had lleft behind a hip wallet with an Id and a CC. They contacted me immediately to let me know and to try and sort out a way for me to get it in Lima. It was not possible because I was only staying there for a day, but the fact that they were so honest and tried to do the impossible to get my belongings back to me makes sure I will always recommend Mama Simona to anyone who goes to Cusco.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The hostel is named after the sacred peak Mama Simona – the only female mountain deity among twelve others surrounding Cusco. Mama Simona Hostel is like a good conversation over a cup of coca tea rather than a wild party; a comfortable and welcoming refuge away from the standard “just-another-hostel” kind of place; simple wooden furniture and lots of room rather than cramped kitschy interiors. Staying with Mama Simona is like being invited into the warmth of a Peruvian home. ... more less
