It was a nice cozy hostel with a good atmosphere and friendly staff! Breakfast was good, there is free tea and the hostel is located central, so everything in Cusco is in walking distance. Fortunately not a party place, but nevertheless easy to meet people there.

It's a nice hostel , I really like their cleanliness, as well as their spacious rooms, and has good hot water , I think this is a good idea for backpaker travellers . The price has related to the services
