Nice quiet hostel away from the "party hostels". Perfect for a rest after the salkantay treks. Rooms are a bit cold due to the heavy brick walls but the beds have thick blankets to counter this. Free WiFi which is dependable and relatively quick which is unlike many hostels I have visited

My partner and I used this accommodation as a base whilst we undertook activities around Cusco. I was exceptionally happy with the hostel. The private rooms were spacious and comfortable. The hot water can be sporadic but better than a lot of other hostels we have stayed at in Peru. It is a great location and for central Cusco, the...

My partner and I flew in to Cusco as our first stop in Peru and stayed here for a few nights before our trek. We stayed in a matrimonial room with a private bathroom, seemed clean to us. It was fairly easy to book and Miguel was quick at responding to emails. They picked us up at the airport. It...

This hostel is very quiet with only small cold common rooms. Dorms are clean and tidy. Breakfast is included. Bread jam butter and coffee. Also has a kitchen for cooking. Shower was often cold due to gas needing changing. Rooms were really cold all day and night. Spanish speaking staff tried hard to help non Spanish speaking people.

We were badly let down at the last minuteand were able to find a room here. The room was perfectly adequate with a basic breakfast included, although for anything extra, you paid extra. Shame there was no refreshing of the room and no provision of shower products, but all in all it was a good stay.

Nothing special, cheap rooms, alright breakfast, but you can buy a fried egg for 1 soles. The kitchen is ok, missing some basic kitchenstuff. A bit cold at night, but there were plenty of warm blankets

Freezing, loud and smokey. Lousy shower and filthy kitchen with cheap breakfast. Room was pleasant looking but VERY COLD. Played music inside hostel all day plus sounds of banging door and local bars. Sound of people walking up/down stairs. Go around corner to Los Angeles BB for private room at similar cost. Good location.

We stayed at this place for one night and then left our bags in storage. Went to Machu Picchu and then came back and stayed another night. This was super helpful. We took the train and it only allows you so much luggage. The staff was super friendly. The room was clean and basic. We had three people In our...
