Loved our stay at ecopackers! Cozy beds, thick blankets and reeeeallly nice hot showers were welcome in chilly Cusco. Free breakfast was very tasty and filling (buffet style). Only $9.50 USD for shared 18 bed dorm. Usually wary of staying in such big rooms but...More
I’m travelling solo. I did the Machu Picchu trip with Ecopacker travel agent. They got the Inca rail ticket, entrance ticket and the hostel set for me at a reasonable price.
I stayed in the hostel for two weeks, cause I love the cheerful staffs,...More
This is an amazing hostel with an extremely kind and generous staff. I needed to print my boarding pass and Amerigo was kind enough to help me. This hostel is also very clean and has a great ambiance. I will definitely stay here next time...More
Loved my stay in this great hostel! I booked a dorm room, but it was very easy to change it to a private room and I was able to check in much earlier then I was supposed to (9 AM). Next to this they were...More
Had a really good stay here. The staff were extremely helpful at all times. I got sick from high altitude and staff attended to me very quickly. Elizabet and Paola are amazing :) would highly recommend staying here while in Cusco. Perfect for all travellers.

my advice?...don't go to a kiosk in the airport unless you are JUST arriving in Peru and dont know the difference between registered cabs and not. They are more expensive and if your backpacking...ever dollar counts! Take a street cab. I only payed 6 soles and refused to pay more. If you're getting in a cab, look for photo ID (should be on dashboard or right hand corner of window) and if there's a dispatch system that is the best. ALWAYS negotiate a set price before you even set foot in the cab. The one that I used to take a lot I think was called tourismo or touristico???...something along those lines?! you could send an email to the hostel or google safe taxi companies.
ALSO if you have time, and if you like beautiful incredible things, I highly suggest taking a collectivo (6 soles) to a town about an hour and a half away called Ollantaytambo. I lived there for a month and it is COVERED in beautiful Inka ruins. if you want to go for a ten minute walk, or if you want to do a 5 day trek up mount Veronika it is safe, STUNNING and so tranquil. As a single female traveler I lived in my tent for 3 days and it was one of the best experiences that I had.
All the best on your travels!
