We very much enjoyed our stay at this hostel. The people were really friendly and helpful and the breakfast was nice. The hostel offers a fully equipped kitchen and hot showers, however the bathrooms were occupied quite often as they were shared by many people. The room itself was quite small and cold. The wifi was sometime a little slow....

We stayed here based on the previous trip advisor reviews and were dismayed to find the hostel "deluxe" room musty, insecure (flimsy windows and doors) and with stains on the bed sheets. We slept fully clothed in order to attempt to sleep (which we didn't) We wanted the hostel experience, and were really disappointed with the room. The bathroom also...

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...

I stayed here for only 2 nights with some friends & was able to see alot through the help of the awesome staff! They were really helpful in giving directions & ensuring you got to your destination in the best way possible. A staff member even got up at 5am just to make sure we got in our taxi safely!...

Pros: A quiet location of cusco, good atmosphere between travellers, free breakfast though it's average (bread and jams), great views over cusco, friendly and helpful staff, low cost (get what you pay for), has a nice restaurant attached to it. Cons: 4 bed dorm was really an 8 bed dorm separate by actual plywood, so very noisy, shared bathrooms are...

Under new ownership, the hostel is run by a couple young guys who are genuine and warm, who are eager to help and and make you feel welcome. They are undergoing extensive renovations, including a new water heater and comfy new beds, and will be remodeling the bathrooms soon. The hostel has a relaxed atmosphere and is located on a...

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...
