I loved this hotel. The room was really good for the price, and the view from the roof was stunning (you could see the Santa Catalina Church and the city square). The staff were polite and the building has a open, airy feel, with live plants and such. This place is a good choice! Don't forget to go to the... More

This is an excellent hotel for travelers on a budget that I highly recommend! By far my favorite hotel in Cusco and probably of all the places that we stayed in Peru! We really appreciated the location; it is only one block off of the plaza de armas! And amazingly, you don't have to sacrifice comfort for location. The bathrooms... More

The hostal is nice and clean. Its location is excellent, is near main square. It is not luxurious but is comfortable. The breakfast is not so good because is always the same and is a small portion. I recommend this hostal if you go low budget and with friends.

This Hostal was fantastic. The staff was so welcoming and helpful with anything we needed. We even had our own room, and this stayed within our broke college student budget. They also stored our bags for us while we hiked the Inca trail, which was really nice!

We had not booked this hotel, but we were happy we ended up staying here. Rooms are very large, beds are comfortable and cozy with the heavy wool blankets! Most of the staff was very helpful and cheerful. Tended to be a little noisy, but only because there was a restaurant close by that had music some nights. This could... More

We went back to Cusco in July, 2011, and stayed at Santa Catalina again. It is the same as in '08 except they did go up $10 in price per night to $40. I told the lady that we would look around for another hostel and she quickly came back down to $30/night : ) I really like this place,... More

Instead of a cookie cutter type hotel, this one has a lot of individual charm, from the inclosed glass boxes of Peruvian art in the hallways , to the funky 4' doorway to the bathroom in our room - we realized we were not in the Holiday inn and we were glad for it!!! Very accommodating staff - they would... More

We were extremely satisfied with this choice. Thanks everyone on Trip Advisor for your reviews. Super location, two blocks from the main square. Excellent reasturant and bar either side of the entrance. Unlike other reviews our rooms (2) were spotless. Staff friendly and very accomodating of every request. Will certainly stay at this location on my next visit.

For $ 40 a night incl. breakfast this was a great deal! The rooms vary greatly, some are newly renovated and absolutely beautiful and some are small and old. Check them out before you book. Bathrooms are really nice and there was plenty of hot water. You have to ask for towels and TP, but staff is very friendly and... More

we had a room very early in the morning. The room was big but noisy. The hostal is close to the center. We had a tour to the Canyon of Colca organized.
