This is a quiet well presented hostel with a small frontage but spacious interior,about ten minutes from the main square. The staff were very helpful and went to great lengths to help us with on going tours.It is clean and comfortable.They have a good web site so check it out if you want to make bookings.

Cons: Not exactly right downtown, we walked from hotel and took a taxi back uphill. Small-sized rooms have funky smell often covered by odd chemicals used for cleaning. One room downstairs smelled like mold. No windows leading to outside, so no views - window is off bathroom. Little things like shower sprayers broken, and plug sockets not secured to the wall correctly...

Pros: Great staff, very helpful for everything - especially trips. Breakfast individually made, but orange juice was not fresh. Great lower lobby with plants, and cool pictures on the walls. Free storage, and ok wifi. Let us check in early. Recommended for the fair price and excellent staff.

Room Tip: Beware rooms on very bottom floor - make sure you ask to see (smell) rooms before checking in.

The rooms are small and ours did not have windows, but the place is lovely and the staff absolutely terrific. Blanca was extremely helpful both in planning our trip prior to arrival and during out stay, We used Cusi Was as "home base" and traveled to and from Cuzco to Machu Picchu and Lake Titicaca. The lobby is gorgeous.

Good choice of rooms in this small boutique hotel. We had a private double adjacent to our four kids, and they all had their own beds (very happy about that). Walking distance to the main square and far enough away from the action to be relatively safe and peaceful. Great value, excellent help with booking private tours to Sacred Valley. Like everything in Cusco, it had lots of stairs :) Highly recommend for families.

We travelled to Peru in October of 2011, and stayed at Cusi Wasi for a total of 4 nights. The service was great, and for $40/night, you truly cannot ask for more. We found the room was quiet, aside from the sound of people walking in the hallways, the type of floor mixed with rubber soles was very squeaky, but that is peanuts for paying $40 a night. It is a nice 5-10 minute walk to the main square, and despite reading an opinion here about the area, we encountered no bad experiences walking to or from the hostel. The people were great and very helpful, we will definitely recommend to others!

Picked us up at the airport on time. Had a great room for the price and the hostal has a wonderful courtyard for relaxing and breakfast. I also appreciated the location which was walking distance to the main square.

The staff was also so sweet and nice. They especially helped me when I fainted due to altitude sickness.
