I stayed this hotel for 2 nights before and after Machu picchu. First day room no.8, second day was room no.19. Both of rooms were clean.

+: nice view from the hotel.
the room has hairdryer and heater.

-: pickup service didn't come
room no.19 was noisy when upstairs people walked around and used toilet.
it was so hard to climb the street in front of the hotel.

Room Tip: except room no.19

Just 5 minutes walk from the main square but all uphill so take it slowly.

Staff had good English and were cheery and helpful. We liked the big rooms and original walls (4ft thick in ours) overlooking town.

WiFi decent speed and in rooms which is a bonus.

Breakfast all fine. For the price it is good value compared to the two more expensive places we tried.

Note that we paid a few dollars more by booking online even though 'best price guarantee'. Also sign saying 10% discount for cash but apparently not for us as an online booking?

we stayed there for 3 and 2 nights with our group in this very nice and friendly hostal, up on a steep hill; the service and breakfast were very good, coca tea during all day. breakfast/sitting room with marvelous views over Cusco. Our breakfast servant was outstanding. this very friendly guy did his job with the most enthousiasm we ever encountered. Wifi in the dining room, not in the rooms. in a word 'a great hostal'.

Room Tip: they have 2 nice panoramic rooms.

not a big deal, but the walk uphill from the main square can be annoying esp due to the altitude. i would ask a taxi to take me up in the future for a buck.

the place itself is very unique and cool. clean and breakfast is good. wifi only strong in main common area. i miss this place. the next hostal we stayed at, samay wasi wasn't nearly as good.

Room Tip: water pressure is good, which is a rarity

We enjoyed our stay in this hostal for a few days in Cusco. We found it to be good value. It is in a good location, about 10 mins along a small but fairly steep sloping road down to the main square, which is typically Spanish, with cathedral and lots of nice restaurants and bars. Aside from that the main plus for this hostal is its views. By virtue of being high up, the views from the rear dining romm and our bedroom were spectacular, across the rooftops and down to the square and cathedral. The hotel was clean and we were looked after well, including storing our luggage while on the Inca Trail.

Room Tip: We paid extra for a better room, it was worth it.

We found this hostel in our Eyewitness Travel Guide. $55 American dollars for a double. Great breakfast. Best coca tea I have had. Room is clean but simple. Hot water. Great water pressure. Superior view of Cusco from the balcony in front of our room.

Bedding is soft and cozy. Most comfortable bed. Almost makes you want to stay in it. Heater in room. Friendly, helpful staff.

We stayed in Rooms #1 and #20 (#1 is the best). Incredible views. Friendly staff that could communicate in English. Great basic breakfast with the most delicious coffee in the whole world. Close to the Plaza. Lots of restaurants and bars close by. Rooms were very clean and hot showers too! They recommend TravelConnections for tours and I was disappointed with the services of that company. Otherwise, everything was excellent.
Perfect stay.
