The stuff is friendly and very helpful! I had to go to the doctor, and they arranged as soon as I asked. They tell u how to get to the places very kindly. The location is also good, u don't have to climb up the stairs from the main plaza, just flat way. (Many hostels located on the uphill a...

Besides the noise at night coming from the bar next door as well as guests in the hostel itself (until 02.00 am, where as the hostel claims to be quiet after 11.00pm) this hostel has the most horrible staff! At the second day of our stay there my boyfriend got very ill and we needed to go to the hospital....

I have had a really bad stay at the Chakana house. The breakfast was terrible, at night there was a lot of noise and the Wifi was bad. The location of the hostel was great, and the common areas looked quite nice but that does not compensate for the above. Have I mentioned that the staff was rude? Thanks for...

The hostel is in a great location, and is surprisingly quiet given its only a couple of blocks from the plaza de Armas. The rooms are clean and feel light and open, and the bathrooms are modern and clean. Our bed was lumpy and felt like the springs were about to push through the mattress. Also, the building ran out...

Good, clean, friendly hostel. Great value as it's close to the main square. Also get a free basic breakfast of bread and jam - not much but it's cheaper than other hostels without this added bonus. Staff are friendly and helpful

This hostel is two blocks from the Plaza de Armas walking down a callejon on which no cars can drive onto a one lane, well lit street with almost no car traffic. If you want to have a drink and walk home safely from a bar, there are 3 bars one block away catering to young travelers. Since Chakana House...

I really recommend this place, I have been there for new year, my initial idea was just sleep 2 nights but the staff and the hold place were amazing. Is to close to square and you will find a lot of place for drink or buy everything. I think that the price is OK but the better part of all...

We stayed in the dorm at chakana house and it was a good price compared with other hostels in cusco. The room was large, bright, comfortable beds and clean bathroom. Breakfast was basic but kept us going until lunch time. The owners and staff are friendly and helpful but English is a bit limited - a good chance to practice...

“no matrimonial room under any circumstances”

“I didn't really see very many rooms in this hostel. We stayed in the matrimonial room just at the top of the stairs across from the bathroom. It had nice lighting, but I dont really know what the other rooms looked like.”

“Do not sleep in the main floor Matrimonial room, specifically request another room, as the main floor room has zero noise isolation from the rooms above.”
