“Special place to stay with wonderful staff!”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

Hostal San Juan de Dios hosted 10+ of my university students and me for several weeks this summer. The hotel has a special mission -- it's run financially for the benefit of a children's clinic (Clinica San Juan de Dios), which is literally next door on the same property. My students and I thoroughly enjoyed the hotel facilities, it's great location in the middle of town, and the opportunity to volunteer at the clinic and to get to know some of the child patients. The staff, including Janet Gutierrez and Mirian Huaman Sair, really helped my students and me with travel logistics, illnesses, taxis and anything else we wanted/needed. I highly recommend this hotel for people who want to stay in Cusco at a special place with a special mission!

The Hostal San Juan De Dios in Cusco is located next to a children´s day clinic/hospital and the profits from the hostal go to the clinic. You can also volunteer to help at the clinic, playing with the children who have cerebal palsy and other diabilities and helping at meal times. It is a small hostal run by a group of young Peruvian women who are only too happy to help out with anything you need. The rooms are spotless and have great views across Cusco to the mountains, the building is modern, bright and airy, and you get an egg breakfast most mornings. The showers can be a little dodgy though, mine had a tiny trickle of water that either scalded or froze you. So I just used my friend´s bathroom whose shower was fine. The real bonus of staying here was when I became sick due to e.coli and giardia infestation, the hostal staff got a doctor over from the clinic to see me within an hour and then went with my friend to get the prescription filled and the lab samples organised. They then brought me soup etc to my room when I was able to eat. Fantastic service overall.

its a little out of town (3 soles by taxi to get in and out) but its quiet, all profits support the childrens hospital nextdoor, the grounds are quite nice and the service is BRILLIANT. the only tiny spoilers are the hotwater sometimes being good and on other times, intermittent. the rooms are fairy standard and a little sparse. breakfast was filling. just down the road, there are rows of shops, restaurants and the like that are very low cost compared to central cuzco. we liked it, especially as our money goes to the hospital. we paid circa $35 but i´´m sure you can get lower.

The reason we chose this Hostel was because of the Children's Clinic that it supports. The money earned by the Hostel is completely turned over to the Clinic. The four of us traveled with four suitcases...two of which we filled with clothing, school and art supplies. On the second day of our stay we took everything over to the Clinic and met all of the children. It was a great visit...and they were so appreciative of the things we brought. The children were really sweet...and we met and talked with them all. We didn't take any pictures because we wanted to protect their privacy.

The Hostel was clean and neat and we had the best rooms upstairs - one with a beautiful view of the mountains...and the other with a view of the courtyard. When we first arrived, we were taken directly into the dining room to enjoy a cup of coca tea...the stuff is really great for help with the altitude. Then we went upstairs (very slowly) for an afternoon nap. By the time we headed out to dinner we all felt pretty good.

The staff at this little Hostel were just great - very pleasant and knowledgeable, ready to help whenever needed, and interested in making our stay the very best. Electricity was never a problem…there were even TV’s in our rooms. But hot water was hard to find no matter where we went in Peru. We learned the secret of this Hostel the day before we left…call downstairs and ask for more hot water. How simple is that!! It worked like a charm and we had plenty of hot water for our last shower before moving on to Puerto Maldonado and the Amazon Jungle.
