I booked this hostal by e-mail based on its #1 rating here - which is why I feel the need to react.
The good news: friendliness and reception are indeed very good.
However at $30 for a single room (no discount negotiable by mail although it was end of the high season and the hostal turned out to be empty except for me!) there are better options even in Aguas Calientes.
Although this place is apparently new it already looks rundown: you now the feeling where at first glance it looks filthy although on closer look it is rather clean but just rundown? And the blood stains on the walls don't help.
Don't be fooled by the TV as an extra argument for the price either: it gives you all the little antenna attached to your TV can give you... which is one Peruvian channel in blurred black&white
