I moved to Cusco from Lima in June of this year and needed an economical place to stay while I looked for a permanent apartment. My Cusqueña office manager booked me into this place, site unseen. I´d never stayed in a hostal before, but clearly didnt want to pay for a tourist class hotel while looking.
There is no question this was the best possible choice. The rooms are spacious, the bathrooms clean and modern. The service is exceptional. Julio the owner treats every guest like family and I very much felt like I was leaving home when l left to move into my apartment.
Through my travel agency in Cusco, we have booked 5 or 6 groups into Famdreams over the past few months and all of them left very satisfied.
There are hundreds of hostals in Cusco and booking one in advance is always a gamble since the quality is so variable. I promse that you wont go wrong with Famdreams.
