Stayed here for three days while adjusting to the altitude before embarking om a 4 day Inca-trail hike.

We got the room overlooking the common area with 3-4 windows. We LOVED it!

Decided to return for a couple of nights to re-charge after our hike and got another room. It was fine but hardly compared to the one we got to stay in earlier. That one was extra-ordinary, so if you stay here - ask for that one :D

Stayed: December 2012, traveled as a couple

we stayed 2 nights (1 before our trek and 1 after) and wanted to stay longer but they did an uncredible mess with the booking.

+ nice place with cozy common areas
+ free wifi (however not in the rooms and not very reliable)
+ good breakfast

what has to be improved:
- improve your booking system!!!!
- make sure that guests get their confirmed room (we got an bunk bed although we had a confirmed booking for a twin)
- do not throw guests with a confirmed booking out (we assume that they needed our room for a big group)
- make sure that guests do not have to deal with booking/room matters during their stay (we lost a lot of time because of their mess)
- do not touch the stuff of your guest and for sure do not throw things away (our water bottle was missing)
- be generous if you do so crazy misstakes (we had to change the hostel and they did not even pay the taxi...)

our conclusion: to be avoided - it is actually a nice place but this does not help you if you have to deal your whole time with booking matters and if you cannot rely on your confirmed booking... sad!

A very good and affordable hostel. The rooms are nice and they have dorms as well doubles with or without private bathroom (which are hot and clean!). The rooms have a good price but were fully booked when we arrived at Cusco, so we could only spend one night there. The staff luckily arranged a room in another hostel which I experienced as good service.

If you want to stay here, which I recommend, it may be smart to book in advance.

Basic accommodation, you do get what you pay for at this hostel. Staff were friendly and helpful, however this hostel seems to be more geared up to the younger traveller. Unfortunately for us our room was situated on the same floor as the dorms and directly opposite the communal toilets. We found that there was a lot of noise due to the number of guests and unfortunately on our second evening we were kept awake into the small hours by a group of students who were celebrating a birthday. Although not ones to be party poopers, this was unfair on the other guests, having to listen to foul language, vomiting and un-tuneful singing (we can laugh about this now!). All in all, a cheap and cheerful place to stay but probably a place for the younger traveller.
We raised our concerns the next morning and felt that the hostel dealt with this to the best of their abilities which we were happy with.

We were so pleased we found this place, and a bit gutted we didn't stay longer. It was so homely, immediately we got there we met people in the communal area. The room was lovely, beds amazingly comfortable and the duvets did not disappoint!
Shower was hot and powerful, everything was clean, and the breakfast was really good. Kitchen facilities seemed good if you want to cook and there was coca tea and coffee available all day.
Staff weren' very communicative but helped us when we needed it
