Pirwa Hostel Machu Picchu
Reviewed November 21, 2009

great hostel. Bit of a fuss over payment of room as we couldn't make it on our first booked night due to the train being cancelled. It got sorted and all was fine though.
Great location, near the hot springs and everywhere else in town. Friendly staff meet you from train. Nice breakfast and fab view of Andes from bedrooms. Town itself pretty small but I loved it.
Overall a great hostel, nice ensuite room with clean, tidy and quite spacious rooms.

This place was okay - a lot like Aguas Calientes itself - kind of dumpy, a little weird, but still slightly charming. Staff seemed high on something, spacy and languid. There was some sort of construction going on next door, and as such there was a giant open air wall in the hostel complete with rubble below, strange. The rooms, however, were actually quite nice - clean, simple. We had a private room for two. Bathrooms very retro in design but amazingly as much piping hot water as we could take, which was fantastic both after a day hiking Maccu Picchu and the next morning. Breakfast was a bust, they ran out of everything very early (all that was left was hot tea water with no tea bags). So you might be able to do better, but was cheap and simple and no frills.
