A good choice for a budget stay in Cusco - which is not easy to find. In Cusco terms this hostal is good value. The Corihuasi has a great location close to the Plaza de Armas, and some rooms have wonderful views over the city...while others have no view at all and are a bit dingy. Breakfast is just about adequate, as long as you eat eggs. Otherwise its very limited. The rooms are clean but the beds a bit soft. But then Cusco is for walking and sightseeing, so you don't spend much time in the room. Sadly the whole Cusco/Maccu Pichu experience has become an overpriced tourist honey pot. If you are spending a small fortune to visit Maccu Pichu, don't bother with the other old Inca ruins near Cusco...such as the fortress of Sasqawan above Cusco...a beautiful walk up the mountain (though we didn't see any other walkers, just hordes of tourist buses), only to be asked for $100 dollars for a family of 3 for entry to see a fairly unimpressive ruin.....more old stones of the type you will see in Maccu Pichu anyway. Overpricing and greed is spoiling this destination.
