Situated about 10 minutes from the main Plaza in Cusco in one of its private rooms. Basic breakfast included. Wonderful helpful and friendly staff, such as Joel! I appear to be jinxed when it comes to showers, one time I just couldn't shower as appeared to have no hot water, but no one else seemed to have an issue :)...

This hostel is located near Plaza de Armas and walking distance from this hostel, there are 2 nice restaurants that offer set menu for 8-10soles. Wifi is good at the lobby but gives a weak signal once you're in the room. Showers were not always hot and sometimes the hostel run out of water. A nice, cheap option when in...

But the receptionist messed up my reservation once i returned from aguas calientes and only booked my room for 2 nights, not 3, so they kicked me out of the private room and stuck me in a shared dorm room right next...

When I arrived into Cusco I was so exhausted I just went to the first Hostel I could find that had private rooms. I ended up staying at Bright Hostel for a few weeks. It's the cheapest private room I could find in Cusco with such a good location and comfortable room. I stayed in a private room with a...

Do not trust presentation pictures on the different websites : rooms are bad, beds also - staff ok but not great. When we tell that to the staff They do not understand and maintain their view. Good point / not far from the main square of the city but 50 soles for that is very expensive (double bedroom )
