My wife and I spent and unscheduled night in this hostal on April 2, 1013. I'd just as soon have taken a pass. I say unscheduled because we had intended to walk the Inca Trail but could only do the first day of it. Instead, after a night back in Cusco, we were booked into this place for $60/night USD.
The first thing they did was walk us up to the 5th floor to what was presumably the best room in the place. When I told them I'd like to see another room, they took us down to the 2nd floor for a much smaller room but, as it turned out, the same price. I found it noisy because of some guy who kept hammering until well after dark, maybe the same guy mentioned by an earlier reviewer - it seems to be perpetually under construction. The food for breakfast was minimally acceptable and hardly filling. The internet was a joke and the signal never did stay strong enough to allow us to stay logged on.
The most irritating matter, though, was the front desk clerk, who hardly looked at us (maybe the owner's son?) and informed me that the "agency" that booked the room would pay the bill. So, we left, only to be run down hours later by a woman who I presume was the owner saying that the clerk was wrong and we still owned the $60. So, after some muttering, I pulled out three US $20s and got rid of her.
All in all, I was pretty unhappy with our stay - a very average but noisy room, uninterested staff, lousy wifi, and below average food. The good part was that it was just up the street from the Indio Feliz, an excellent restaurant that served ethnic Peruano food, well worth the price.
