We honestly booked the hostel without much expectation, just wanted to sleep for one night before we go to machu picchu, and turns out we both regreted not spending more time in Cusco. The hostel is very nice, clean, and has a young friendly vibe. My favorite part is the terrace and the restaurant in the back, which has really...

We had an amazing two nights here; the staff was extremely helpful in helping us plan our day trip to Sacred Valley. I didn't catch his name (the guy with the great English and tattoos) even got up at 5am to insure that our taxi arrived and we left safely, which was so kind of him! The view from the...

BEAUTIFUL view. The staff was incredible and able to help us out whenever we needed assistance. If we were on an early morning tour they always had a breakfast ready to go for us. Helped with laundry, suggestions on a place to grab a bite to eat, and provided us with a great chill and relaxing environment to spend in...

Nothing negative to say. Martin and Maxi went out of their way to make sure I got the sleep, food and adventure that I sought. Martin"s English language skills were of utmost importance in organizing my trip to Machu Picchu and visiting various sites around town. They were gracious enough to even allow me to store my bags and use...

I had an amazing stay at the sunset Hostal. The new owners Martin ans Maxi were really kind and friendly and made us feel like home. Everything is very personal, I enjoyed hanging out with them and chatting. Since they both just took over the hostal and work everyday at something, the place improves from day to day. For example...
