“The Best Hostal In Peru”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013

Hostal Qorikilla is the best hostal in Peru. Nice rooms, excellent customer service, friendly staff, very central, the rooms were nice and clean. We stayed in a 2 bed room, we paid almost the same as the 6 mix beds in other hostals. I strongly recommend this Hostal for everyone that is vising Cusco. Hasta

This quaint 4 story hostal is situated on top of a hil over looking the entire city of cusco. The hostal is nicely decorated, always clean and provided very comfortable beds. It gets a little chilly at night but the beds have nice warm duvet comforters that keep you warm. The hostal provides free wifi , pick up from the airport and continental breakfast. the owners Hugo and carlos are very freindly and helpful. They suggested local restaurants, directions around the city and allowed us to store our luggage there when we went on our 4 day inca trail. My favorite part of the hostal was the roof top terrace where you could watch the sun set. I would recommedn this hostal and would stay there again.

I am writing this review as after reading the last 2 entries I was wondering if I was staying at the wrong hotel :). I have been travelling in Peru for 6 months now and needed a place that was quiet and nice for a break before heading into Bolivia. I searched high and low in Cusco with very little success unless I wanted to pay over $50 which I did not. I then came across this place through trip advisor and made a deal for 10 nights. I have a wonderful room with a great bed and hot water. This place is spotless. They are cleaning all the time. I went on trips to Machu and the Sacred Valley and always returned to a clean room and the quiet is priceless. Also when I went on the roof I discovered the VIEW. You can see the plaza and all the churches from this view point and not a bad place for a beer or glass of wine after walking around all day. Also my friends stayed in the matrimonial suite and had this view from there room.
They have also arranged taxis for me and my friends and told us the price range for the taxis so we were not cheated. I know they were fair as like I said I have been in Peru a long time. This hotel is great if you want some real peace and quiet for a night or more. I highly recommend it. As far as the stairs go if there to much grab a taxi for 5-7 soles but good conditioning for your trekking :).

Room Tip: The matrimonial suite if you are a couple :) 3rd floor

If you like rooms with smelly toilets, dry blood/pubes on the bed sheets and paint peeling off the walls, then Qorikilla is your place. Additionally, if you enjoy it when the receptionist tries to fleece you for $30 when you complain about the above and ask to leave, read on. According to the terms and conditions of our booking, if you want to cancel the reservation at short notice, you're obliged to pay for one night ($30). However, the receptionist wanted us to pay for two nights despite having the booking confirmation in front of him which stated otherwise. Not being able to speak Spanish, I did find the inevitable confrontation between my girlfriend and the receptionist highly amusing. Spanish arguments need to be televised ASAP.

That said, the view from out room overlooks Cusco city and makes for an excellent photo opportunity. Walking back up the seemingly neverending set of steps to the hostel when your rear end resembles that back of the batmobile and you're suffering from altitude sickness is not so pleasant. Some taxi drivers even refused to take us there at night, saying it was too far from the plaza! I must admit that the courtesy lift from the bus terminal was much appreciated though.

It is really a shame that I have to write a bad review forthis cozy hostel. We stayed there for 5 nights, left our luggage there, when we went to Machu Picchu, came back for one more night and everything worked wonderful. We even told our friends to stay there because they were so nice and friendly. The rooms were small but nice and we had a wonderful view overlooking Cuzco. It is a 10 minutes walk to the City centre and to come back it goes steep uphill. The breakfast could have been a bit richer, but we are already used the south american way of breakfast.
But what happened when we left was incredible! The recepcionist organized a transport by car to the train station for MP and back and told us that this guy could also get us bus tickets to Arequipa.
We told this guy that we needed 4 tickets to Arequipa and that we wanted to travel with Cruz del Sur as we heard that this would be the best bus company. He told us it was 140 Pesos per person (ca. 50 US$) and that was the price indicated on the homepage. We gave him the money.
On the travelling day he came to the hotelroom in the morning and told us, that Cruz del Sur had a technical problem with the bus and that he could get us tickets for another company, Oltursa, with the same standards. This would be 10 Pesos less per person. As we did not know, what else to do, we believed him and agreed. Later we checked the website of Oltursa and found out, that the price was 90 Pesos per person! We went down to Hugo, the recepcionist and told him about the issue. Hugo called Norberto (?), the guy and spoke to him. Than he told us, that the price on the homepage was not correct, but we would get 20 Pesos per person back.
We should have been picked up by Norberto in front of the hotel. But instead, Hugo told us to walk down the street, that he was waiting down there. Strange, isn't it? We did so and found a tiny little taxi (for 4 persons plus 4 big and 4 small backpacks!) although Norberto told us the day before he would come with a big car! There was a woman handing out the bus tickets and 80 Pesos.
As it was dark, we did not check the bus tickets and went to the bus terminal. And then we saw on the tickets, they were worth 90 Pesos each! So Norberto and probably Hugo as well earned 30 Pesos per person!
It is really sad, that the hostel is working with people like this. We were really happy staying there and also left a generous tip at check out. But obviously they are involved, otherwise Hugo could have helped, paying the right prices! I would not recommend to stay there, although we had a lovely stay....

The staff was very polite and helpful, the rooms were clean, airport-hotel transfer was perfect, hot water streem was ok. The hotel works with a reliable travel agent, who perfectly organized our trips. The rooms with the window to the street are a little bit loud at night. We recomend it :-)

Room Tip: If you want to prolong your stay, book it online, the prices are cheaper then directly in the hotel.

Pros:
The hotel was very clean and rooms were comfortable. They stored our bags for us while we were on the Inca Trail until we came back. We got the map and laundry service. They spoke politely although only the manager could speak English.
Cons:
1. Although hostel is located not far from the center, you have to climb up to the hotel by very steep way. We took a taxi every time we returned to the hostel.
2. The street was narrow and the minibus, which we ordered couldn’t enter the street. We had to upstairs with our luggage up to the wide street.
3. Rooms were very small, there was no place for our luggage. No balconies as it was promised and the view was on the street.
4. It was noisy in the night. In the early morning, 4:45 I was waked up, without any ask for it.
5. Problems with a hot water. It is impossible to get a hot shower simultaneously in several rooms.
6. There were no heaters in the rooms.
7. We cannot use wireless internet access in rooms, WiFi was absolutely not sufficient.
8. When we arrived, we asked for the cab from the airport to the hotel. They charged us triple the price.
9. The guestrooms at Hostal Qorikilla do not include coffee/tea makers, as it was promised.
10. The very old and small TV did not work at all. The floor lamp was without lamp.
11. The windows to the street were dirty as though they have not been cleaned for years.
I do not recommend this hotel especially for groups of people.

Estimado Sr. Gorelik
A nosotros nos sirve de mucho los comentarios que hacen con referencia al servicio que prestamos para asi mejorar mas no estamos conformes con algunos puntos de sus comentarios .
Con respecto a la habitacion usted indica que es muy comoda luego hace el comentario que es muy pequeña y no cuenta con un lugar donde poner las maletas es contradictorio su comentario.
La habitacion tiene un porta maletero.
Yo le pregunte a la encargada del grupo Svetlana Freeman si requerian estufa en la habitacion y me indico que no era necesario . Esta persona era la encargada de la reserva
Cuando la huesped Svetlana Freeman me solicito un bus para recogerles ya que eran 09 personas le indique que el costo era S/35.00 soles peruanos por las 09 personas , si bien el taxi del Aereopuerto al Hostal esta S/10.00 soles en un auto para 01 o 02 personas maximo normalmente es lo que cobran los taxista .El Hostal les envio un Mini bus para las 09 personas y obviamente no va a costar el mismo precio de S/10.00 soles .
Si usted ve en los servicios que presta el Hostal no esta incluido en la habitacion Tetera ni Cafetera y en ningun momento les prometi que se les iba a poner cafetera ni tetera en la habitacion . El personal llenaba sus 09 termos de agua caliente cuando lo pidieron . Agradeciendo infinitamente su comentario .
Saludos
