The attention was great due to Martin, the hotel manager. He was always keen to help and provide tips to better enjoy Cuzco. Additionally, the hotel has a terrace with an amazing view, perfect for having breakfast. The kitchen is always available and coca leaves too, which comes in very handy to prevent altitude sickness.

Great view from the rooftop. Laundry in the hostel, really nice staff!! A bit far from the center but for walkers that’s really fine. Breakfast in place, the rooms are nice, a couple of grocery stores nearby. I’ll visit again.

La mejor experiencia de hotel en mi vida, comenzando desde el lugar, la vista que tiene es simplemente indescriptible, tienen que comprobarlo, y obviamente la atención de este lugar es A-1, gracias a Martin, el administrador del hotel, una persona amable, respetuosa y hospitalaria, que nos atendió desde cordialmente desde el momento que hicimos la reservación, cuando llegamos y hasta cuando nos retiramos con mucha nostalgia de dejar a un gran amigo, pero de todas maneras volveremos, 100% recomendado.

We had a private room that was what I would expect from a hostel - decent beds and space. The bathroom was pretty large! The common area has a great view of the city, and I LOVED the cat who lives at this hostel - he was so, so sweet! Staff were very kind and helpful. The hostel is walking distance to many key places in Cusco.
