The beds were clean and comfortable, the bathroom was clean though it did have a sewer gas smell (not just the trash, definitely sewer).

We spent one night at El Balcon. The staff is lovely, and breakfast was wonderful. The rooms were chilly, but heaters were rolled in and we slept well. Excellent location, a few blocks from the main square of Cusco. We rented two rooms and both were fine.

When we arrived in the street outside my heart sank but as soon as you're through the doors into the pretty garden court yard it all looks much more homely. We stayed here twice whilst in Peru and the rooms were both quite basic but good and clean. The location is excellent, close to the main Plaza but far enough...

This was our second hostel in Cusco - we moved from El Tuco to be closer to the centre, and slightly regretted it. It is super cheap, at 40s for a double with shared bathroom / 50s with ensuite, and accordingly basic. The family who own it are absolutely lovely, but the place is a bit run-down. Wifi is free...
