Lovely hostel not the best but not the worst. Helpful staff, ok rooms and average breakfast. But definitely better than some others. The staff are also happy to store your stuff for you while you do the Machu Picchu trek. I'd recommend it for a budget nights stay.

We stayed 4 nights in the hotel. The rooms are quite basic, nothing fancy but clean. The staff made us feel confortable & helped us with various issues. The breakfast is nice & the Location is really good for walking the (touristic) City. All in all a good experience.

This place is so quite, staff are lovely. Good selection of a buffet style breakfast. Private room with bathroom was a very reasonable price. Only reason why they did not get five out of five was the hot water was a little intermittent or just too hot.

After a full day on a bus, we arrive in Cusco. As I was Inquiring about hostels, the taxi drivers swarm us (practically grabbing our bags). Being used to this aggressiveness and wondering where this adventure was heading, a friendly face asked "do you need a room?" I asked, What kind of place is it? "its my place, I am...

1. At check-in we paid for the first night. At check-out, they said it wasn't registered that we had paid, and we were forced to pay again for the first night- no apologies were made, and we were made to feel bad for causing a fuss. 2. It's small, so if you're looking for the backpacker-meet-people experience, you're in the...

Hostel is fine, rooms and beds are clean. That's it. The only shower, located in the patio just next to the only toilet was barely warm when not cold. There is absolutely no privacy. The whole place was very cold (July). Staff was helpful and nice though. We paid 25 soles each for a 6 beds room I think Loki...

I came here with a reservation, which reception was unable to find upon my arrival. I came in on an overnight bus from Puno, absolutely exhausted.
