I stayed here for 2 days before going on my trek and 2 days afterwards. It's a small hostel with maybe 10 rooms at most. Very clean and they offer free breakfast consisting of eggs and a small sandwich. The staff are very friendly and will help you out with booking tours. The hostel itself is located at the end...

So to be honest the hostel side of things was good. But I was left with a bad taste from booking a trek through them. It's a long story but essentially they were way more expensive, and I was the only person on the trek who then had to pay more during as they didn't follow up. When I asked...

Very pleased with our stay here. The staff here are incredibly accommodating and nice. Breakfast in the morning and tea all day are a nice touch. Comfortable beds and clean rooms compliment the good pressure hot showers. Quite streets and no traffic made for great sleeps.

Great location in the "art and hipster" district san blaas. Windows mostly to the street, BUT the one...

Such a great place in a beautiful city, and for a very reasonable price. I stayed here for 4 nights and couldn't have asked for a better hostal. The breakfast was perfect, the rooms were clean, the beds were comfy, and -- best of all -- the staff were wonderfully hospitable and a pleasure to talk to. They always asked...

My boyfriend and I stayed at El Grial before and after our Inca Trail trek and felt completely at home. The shower is amazing, beds are clean and the staff is extremely helpful. During our first stay the wifi wasn't working in our room and when we returned from Machu Picchu they had gotten a brand new router to remedy...

Adorable structure, lots of light, in San Blas bohemian neighborhood, 2 blocks from San Blas plaza, only a 10 min walk to Plaza de Arms. Front room can be noisy so bring ear plugs. Delightful staff, reasonably priced, very secure.

I stayed for 3 nights, and this was a very good choice to spend some days in Cusco area. The staff is really nice and helpful, the room was confortable and clean, and the breakfast was good. The location is great, you´re near the center but not too much. A very good choice!
