Great big Hostel with some great features... such as the bar, the Tab system (when used properly) and the tours desk. However the wifi is horrible, no doubt for a hostel that size and reputation should be better. The bar staff can be pretty annoying as well, bragging about some stories I'm sure never happened. And with a typical drinking... More

This hostel is a cheap place to stay if visiting cusco. At first it didn't look like the best place to stay although after meeting some people it turned out to be great. The food is good and the people are friendly. The staff are very helpful and making booking tours very easy and stress free. Well recommended.

Loki. The reason why bad things happen to good people. Such is that reasoning that I thought it was a good waste of 10 minutes of my life to write a review that, with any luck, will allow me to fulfil my lifelong ambition of appearing on buzzfeed. Rather than detailing any single experience from my time here, perhaps it... More

Loki is a monster of a hostel but the smaller bar makes it retain it's "small hostel" feel. (bar manager Matt kept the team focused and drunk) and the shouts of LokiLokiLoki were always met with shouts of oi oi oi.. Good times.

The storage room is amazingly convenient - which was needed when we went out for trekking. There are also mini lockers for storing important stuff. The bar is awesome - lots of good meals and also cheap. The stuff willing to help u anytime. The only disadvantage is that u have to climb many steps to get there.

The rooms aren't cheap considering the hostel isn't even centrally located. The wifi is only available in the crowded bar which is full of bros. It felt like a bad college party. I don't understand why anyone would want that sort of environment in a city where most people are exhausted from trekking. And Cusco has some amazing spots for... More

I stayed four nights in Loki Cusco, in between two tours also booked through Loki travel. I was in the Value dorms, with 11-14 people each night. It is a great value for the price.

We stayed here one night before finding a better option - our favourite was Dragonfly hostel. The building is nice, but can be noisy as it's a bit of a party hostel.
