What a great place to stay in Cusco. Very close to the Plaza de Armas (2 minutes walk) in a safe area. The owner is the most helpful I have encountered in my year travelling. If you arrive late he stays up until you have arrived safely and when we left for a trek at 4am he was up to make sure we had everything we needed. In fact when we left he even flagged down a taxi for us and stayed waving goodbye till we had left. Such personal service is almost impossible to come by these days.
There is a great kitchen you can use and a welcome fire is lit every evening. The rooms are great value with the option for shared or private bathroom.
My only complaint is that the owner is not good at laundry, our clothes came back not much cleaner than when we handed them in. But he really is such a great guy that it didn't spoil our stay even the slightest bit.
The 10am check out is a little early but it is made perfectly clear that you are welcome in the hostal (just not the bedroom) as long as you want and can still use the kitchen, free wifi and showers etc.
If only everywhere was like this!
