My overall experience of this hostel is not good. If you have the option of choosing another hostel, do so. The price is higher than similar hostels in Cusco. That being said, the pancakes they serve (included) for breakfast are delicious, and the hostel has wi-fi and computers free to use. Good: Several sleeping options, pancakes for breakfast. Bad: Unfriendly... More

We stayed in this hostel for more than a week. It was a great hostel while it lasted but it is now closed. While we went on the inca trail and returned 4 days later we discovered that the owner had had an emergency sale while we were away. We found this out at 11.30pm when we returned to check... More

A bit of a hidden gem - this hostel is just outside the touristy centre of Cusco (5 mins walk), but do not let that put you off! As a result, it's a wonderful chilled place thankfully free of partying gap year-ers. There's a big lounge, a courtyard (with hammocks!) and a fantastic roof terrace with stunning views over the...

My girlfriend and I stayed there for 10 days in November. So far, this is without a doubt the cleanliest hostal I have seen in Peru! You can literally eat on the floor without being concerned for your stomach! The staff consists of a team of 4 ladies in charge of reception, cleaning, cooking and laundry, and 1 man in... More

Nice, chilled out, relaxing place to stay. Nice bar upstairs, big screen tv - can watch whatever you want on it. Nice vibe to the place. It's the perfect place to stay if you're trying to avoid party hostels

This hostel has a great atmosphere. Breakfast is good, and there are plenty of communal areas in which to meet fellow travelers. The hostel is a little bit out of the way, but is within easy walking distance of all relevant sites. Sadly, we did not have such a great time with the tour that we booked through the hostel....

Great hostel with heaps of private rooms/ensuites, a rooftop terrace, a small courtyard, large TV room with heaps of comfortable sofas and a well stocked kitchen. This hostel also has an onsite bar, tour desk, heaps of lockers and friendly staff. We stayed here before and after our Machu Picchu trek and would definately recommend it. It was very convenient...

This place is tops. Sure, it isn't in the center but it allows you to really check out the city, rather then only 3 blocks around the Plaza. I booked a Salkantay trek through the hostel and was very impressed. There was always another guest or staff member wanting to go on the daily morning hikes into the mountains surrounding... More

Surely the best hostel during our 2-week trip in Peru. Great hot showers, large and clean dorms (we stayed in a matrimonial room w/ private bathroom), you can leave your bags after checkout at no cost while waiting for your bus/flight or while being out for some trekking excursion. I considered it safe as it is always closed from inside.... More

“We recommend you spend the extra few dollars for your own private room with ensuite. The rooms are very spacious, comfortable and worth the few extra dollars for the privacy.”
  • Our ensuite in our private room (also has a shower behind the door)
  • Our second private room (from after our trek)
