“Ukuku and staff is the best you could have!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2013

I have visited Cuzco twice and stayed in a variety of places there. On my last trip I even had the pleasure to see this hostel being built. The work, love and attention to detail that has gone into every aspect of this hostel is amazing. It is close enough to the main plaza but just a far enough walk that you will get some peace and quiet. Very close to San Pedro market. The hostel itself is stunningly beautiful and vibrant. The Ukuku team has given each room a unique look and feel and you can tell they had a lot of fun designing each room. Ronnie is a wonderful host and a great guide of the city as well. He is fun, patient, helpful and generally a great guy to be around. He can help you with any tour you would want to go on. The kitchen here is also amazing! Big open space and very fun colors. the open air of the hostel and shared spaces is really unique compared to all the tiny cramped hostels in Cuzco with dingy common areas. Ukukus will really give you a magical experience in the land of the Incas. Highly Recommend!!

It's one of those places where everyone is so nice, you start considering whether to visit the places you planned or just stay and chill out in great company! They're young and motivated people who know everything about their area, where to eat, drink, visit, catch the buses, etc. The day I come back to Cusco, I already know where I am staying, in my second home! Thank you so much guys!
