“Friendly staff + great location”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

We stayed at Dragonfly several times, both before and after Machu Picchu and the Sacred Valley. The staff at the hostel are really friendly, helpful and speak great English. The rooms are very clean and the kitchen area has everything you need. The only thing that needs improving is they need a new router or internet connection. It tends to drop out every 15 minutes.

Room Tip: Rooms upstairs are quieter, wifi doesn't reach the ones in the corner.

Awesome atmosphere in this small and funky hostel !
The rooms are super clean and the beds really comfy.. Shower is the best in all Peru .. Super hot and really good pressure ! It worth going only for that, believe me !
Staff is really cool and helpful . They make their own beer "dragonbeer " and you can enjoy barbecue night and movie night once a week !
We really felt like at home and ended up staying 8 days instead of 4.. just chilling and enjoy the best of cusco, close to everything !
Oh and also the breakfast is good , with fresh fruit juice and you can enjoy the free coffee and tea all day long !
Thank you to all the staff members for making our stay so great !

The staff here are informative and accomodating, social but never imposing, and the best people to laugh with when things go wrong. The bathrooms are clean (the whole place actually) and always had hot showers, and whether you want to socialize at the bar downstairs or have a chill night in the kitchen/living room, it"ll be easy to quickly feel at home. I planned to move to another hostel recommended to me, but ended up staying here for eight days (some people stayed multiple weeks). I only wish I had known about them when I was in Lima.

I really enjoyed staying in Dragonfly Hostel, not only because they have facility that you expect the hostels to have like bed, hot shower, breakfast, and things like that but also this hostel has this atomosphere to bring people together: I got to know so many people with different nationalities by just sitting in the common area and ended up having conversation for hours, sharing our adventure, going to places like restaurants, clubs, even to machupichu: For a girl who is travelling alone in South America for the first time, encounter with these people were most valuable thing i earned staying this hostel:

I first stayed at DragonFly Lima and they told me I get a discount if I stay in Cuzco as well and so I did. The staff is very helpful and friendly, location is great very close to Plaza de Armas, the atmosphere is nice and fresh with bright colors, and rooms are comfy and clean. Out of all the hostels I stayed in during my Peru+Bolivia trip, this is the one I liked the most so I totally recommend it =)

We were staying at Loki hostel but when we got back from Machu Picchu we were so tired to walk up the stairs that we made a last minute decision to stay at Dragonfly hostel for one night until we got more energy to go to Loki. We never left. The service is exceptional we have enjoyed some of the best meals recommended by the oo so beautiful french manager Julian. Our beds are comfy and the showers well all I got to say its paradise :) The lighting really makes this place and there is WIFI everywhere which makes it perfect for me to facet me with my love oversees. I would highly recommend this hostel. I wouldn't say its a party hostel its for the hippie at heart with relaxed vibes and good energy. The colors and staff makes this place a gem in Cusco. Also its in the middle of everything walking distance to major attractions.. 5 stars !!
