Rooms are comfortable with clean hot showers and away from the bar area so quiet. Bar serves a good range of Peruvian/Spanish/English food, has a pool table, table tennis table, often shows films and has a great nightlife at night. Location is up the hill a five/ten minute walk from the central square. Nice little place to escape to but also has a tourist help centre inside the hostel to help with getting out and about in the city and surrounding area (Machu Pichu), not necessarily the cheapest tour options but easy to organise. Wifi is not in rooms and weak in the bar area but there is a computer room with fast internet. No laundry service but laundrette next door which does laundry in a day. Stay on reception a bit moody at times but generally heloful and bar staff are lively. Great for a few days ... lots of people stay longer!

Room Tip: 106 has great views and nicest dorms

I highly recommend staying at loki cusco. I stayed in a private room with a bathroom which was amazing. We had towels, soap, shampoo, tea, kettle and hot water bottles for those chilly nights. The beds were insanely comfy and the shower was so hot! We also stayed in a dorm which was nice and had adequate security and the communal bathrooms were always clean. Don't stay here if you don't want to party and you like to sleep. The in house bar gets pretty crazy and they like to play the music loud. If you can't sleep, join the party! The only down fall is its located up a giant hill which is tough in the altitude. Good training for Machu Picchu!

anyone who's ever stayed here knows that climbing the staircase from the center of cusco to the loki hostel is a good way to get acclimated to the altitude in the andes. the buses from Puno all arrive at 4 am, but the staff at Loki is prepared...they will cheerfully give you an open bed and let you shower and take a nap until the official check-in around noon. the rooms are nice, the water is hot, the food is good and plentiful. sleep is the only thing hard to come by, as the music rocks til 2 am and the crowd takes at least an hour to disperse.
it's a great place to meet fellow travelers, but most likely the sort who are moving from one party to another.
wifi is sketchy.
all in all the place is nice and well run, and deserves its reputation.

Room Tip: small rooms with private bath are furthest from the bar, so offer the best chance at quiet

Go there if you want to party, meet other amazing travelers or if you just want to play ping pong. Its really a very fun place and if you don't only come for the sleeping part Loki is the right choice. The staff is friendly and the showers are hot and clean. The WiFi didn't work very well unless you hung out at the bar. Location is good and great views but you have to climb some steps to get there.

Having gleaned that the party atmosphere in Loki La Paz was right up our street, we decided to spend a minimum of five nights in the Cusco hostel. After sightseeing in Cusco city centre, Loki was a great place to come back to, with wonderful food (big variety, reasonably priced) and a wide choice of drinks offers to get you in the party spirit, any day of the week. Despite the wild atmosphere, there are plenty of rooms in designated quiet zones so resting after Machu Picchu was no problem. It is located around 4 blocks from the Plaza, and there is a steep hill up to the hostel, but if you're doing the Inca Trail it's a piece of cake. Great hostel for young travelers, highly recommended for a guaranteed good time.

Room Tip: Rooms near the bar not recommended if you value your shut eye.

This is a fantastic place to stay!! Beds are great, bathrooms clean and it has the best bar.
Staff is nice and seriously the party at the bar is amazing. There's also a really nice area to relax and chill. Can't wait to go back.

I slept only one night in Loki, after coming back from Aguas Calientes, completely tired from Machu Picchu. But I can surely say that Loki is a huge hostel, with a beautiful big courtyard and another bit smaller one in the back, with large wooden rooms, big beds but small bathrooms. I could barely fit in the shower :P But hey, it was ok, we're world travelers, we can fit anywhere, right?
Prices? Well you can get better price in Cusco and location is not that great, comparing to Plaza de Armas of course. The street in front of the hostel is being repaired now, so it's all dirty, muddy and with holes... and it's going down hill...

Room Tip: Don't take the cheapest room cause it's somewhere in the basement.
