We stayed here only for one night whilst we were transitioning from Cusco to Bolivia. We paid only $40US for a private double room and it did have decent hot water and good pressure. Bed was super creaky and walls were flaking but you get what you pay for. It is super close to the main square which obviously went... More

The manager wasn't at the property and the two girls that are there didn't know what to do, I was just told to sit and wait. After an hour I asked to speak to the manager who they called, although she apologised... More

An absolutely gorgeous place to stay right in the center, near the Plaza de Armas of Cusco. Gorgeous view from the room and the terrace where a lovely breakfast is served each morning. Ruth, the owner, is very warm and attentive and the rooms are beautiful. Enchanting.

I stayed here two nights and it was perfect. The shower was always hot. The king bed was comfortable. There was plenty of tea available. One of the evening shift girls was very sweet.

This hostal is 4 min walk to the Basilica (historico centro) de Cusco, where all the action and great restaurants are located. The interior court is very cute and the view from the top floor is amazing, espacially at night. Very romantic. The matress was VERY melow and the wifi didn't work.

Very nice hotel in Cuzco. We had a beautiful room with a beautiful view over Cuzco. It was a bit exhausting to walk up the stairs to the hotel but the view was worth it and it was pretty close to the Plaza de Armas. It also has a very nice fully equipped kitchen for cooking and enough coca tea... More
