In a city that seems more busy with taking your money than providing you with genuine hospitality, Hostel Arcano is was a much welcomed encounter. Raul, the owner, recently bought the hostel and is doing his very best to provide you with a homely service.
The hostel is not fancy. You won't find anything fancy here (for example flat screen TVs, or Playstations); however, if you need that, you shouldnt probably be staying at a budget hostel anyway.
The hostel has all of the basics down: clean and tidy rooms, friendly, available, and helpful staff. A simple, but very nice breakfast of bread (with butter and jelly), juice, and coffee is provided in the morning. Laundry service is very dependable and reasonable. Out of three times, once my laundry was slightly humid, when I mentioned this to the front-desk, they accepted their mistake right away. Also, unlike other hostels, Arcano well provide with you with complementary towels, tissue, and soap. The towel is especially very helpful. I hate carrying we towels!
In cusco, everybody seems to be a guide and providing a tour service. Unfortunately, many provide shoddy service for a good price. A great benefit of staying with Raul is that he himself has a background in tourism and can connect you with very dependable people. I used his connections twice and was very satisfied.
I had a great time. I would definitely stay here again.
