You simply cannot beat the location of this hostal in Cusco. It is right in the heartbeat of everything. Unfortunatly, yes, there were some loud nights, but it is the price you pay for being in the thick of it. The building is a spanish colonial style with all rooms on the second floor. The staff was helpful, the breakfast was plenty and they even stored our bags for us when we went to the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu. Beds were conmy and the showers were great- hot water and lots of pressure!

Only complaint is they were supposed to pick us up at the airport and they never showed up. so we had to get out own ride and got ripped off by a taxi driver. sigh.

Room Tip: Certainly you want a room with a balcony overlooking the main square... but remember that their celebrations often go into the night! Can be loud. Also, the church bells ring EVERY night. Sometimes for a couple hours, sometimes for 30minutes- along with loud speaker announcements.

We stayed here for 5 nights in total and the only reason we didn't move was for it's ease of location. The rooms were not clean: the showers had hair from previous guests on the shower curtain and tiles and the beds have bed bugs (was bitten every night regardless of sleeping in sleeping bag on top of blankets). The staff were not friendly or helpful and made everything seem a hassle for them. Didn't see a smile once. Again, the only reason we didn't move was laziness of packing up and moving in such a short time.

My wife and I stayed for a long time in this great hotel right next to the Plaza de Armas in Cusco. It is in an excellent location with large pleasant rooms looking out on Plaza Kusipata. The hotel is close to the Plaza de Armas on del Medio. So there are two pleasant plazas on either side of the hotel. Because of the fantastic central location, very good price, pleasant and very clean rooms and very helpful staff we stayed in Cusco a long time. We stayed in another hotel for the first night which was double the price, further from the plaza and much smaller rooms. So when we found the Inti Wasi we were very happy. The Inti Wasi rooms were very large, nicely decorated with Inca weavings and much cheaper. Roger provided very nice breakfasts with lovely butter and rolls; and jam, fruit, yoghurt and coffee. The counter staff of Elisabeth, Monica and Djana were all extremely friendly and helpful. We felt like we were staying with a very hospitable family. The rooms were cleaned thoroughly every day and the bathrooms were kept very clean indeed. The laundry service here is very quick and cheap. The courtyarded building has a transparent roof and a good computer for guests. The wifi was very quick in the courtyard. For the price this is an excellent hotel. We are Australians who have been all over the world, but we have never had such good value. This hotel is much cheaper than any other hotel near the plaza. We saved a lot of money in taxis too. Its right near the market and around the corner within a couple of minutes of two supermarkets. All the best restaurants in Cusco are a few minutes away, especially on the plaza. There is also a good travel service here... just ask at the desk... that took us to Machu Pichu.
This is a fabulous hotel. You cannot get better value here in Cusco. We are coming back.

Upon arriving in Cusco, we were offered a two night deal for this hostel (not listed in LP), which was recommended by our driver. We checked it out before agreeing and it was only a block or two from Plaza de Armas. While checking in we were given mate de coca for help adjusting to the altitude and some useful advice on getting to our next stop -- Aguas Calientes. The room had a private bathroom and a small balcony which was nice for looking out and convenient for drying washed clothing. The staff was helpful and even kept our backpacks while we spent two nights in Aguas Calientes. There were two computers with free internet access, so we were able to book a flight back out of Cusco. The usual breakfast was available each morning - bread, coffee/mate de coca.

I was recommended this B&B/hostal/hotel (it's not "specialty housing") by my boyfriend's older boss who is from Lima, and is a wealthier Peruvian at that. It was perfect and we were here for all 7 days we were in the area (4 days/ 3 nights of which we just left our big luggage to do a 4 day hike).

First of all, true heat doesn't exist ANYWHERE in Peru, unless you are at a nicer & pricier hotel, so this should not be a downside. Regardless, I found the rooms to be quite comfortable & clean and we moved to 3 different rooms during our stay (long story; not their fault). The breakfast is on par with every b&b we stayed at mostly, too. Of course, the location literally cannot be beat either!

The service was also fantastic - The staff, while on the shy side as we found most Peruvians to be, we helpful, accomodating & nice. True story: I came down with a very nasty stomach sickness the first night I was there and Louis (sp?) was beyond concerned for me. He happily checked in on me & my boyfriend, called me a doctor when I needed it & helped my boyfriend find a pharamcy & medicine/drinks/food. He also gave us wake up calls & called us cabs whenever we needed (often very early!).

Def. would recommend here and even stay again if I ever return to Peru.
