I stayed here last year when spending a couple days in Cusco. One of my favorite hostels I've stayed at. Loved the personality and familial vibe of the place. No complaints about breakfast, a little bit of everything. Clean room and bathrooms/showers. Located in a quiet area, but be warned that it's a trek of stairs when walking from the... More

It was a bit challenging to climb the x amount of stairs off of the main square to reach Piccola Locanda if you've not yet acclimatized, but it's well worth it. The terrace offers a great view of Cusco and the hostel is located steps away from the City's best vantage point. Staff was lovely and the facilities were clean... More

We stayed here during our first night after flying in to Cusco. The beds were comfortable and the staff was friendly and helpful with giving us recommendations on what to do in the city before we headed to Machu Picchu. I gave this place a 4/5 start review because the breakfast was pretty sub par considering this was our most... More

Clean room, clean bathroom and friendly staff who was willing to help with everything. It is not located directly in the city but in a good walking distance (about 5-10minutes). We enjoyed our stay here and felt a little like home :)

We stayed a few nights at this place during our stay in Cusco, and by the end, we didn't want to leave! So cozy, so friendly, and the views from the rooftop terrace were GORGEOUS. Plus, the wifi was nice and strong, even in our room. We would have stayed for months if our schedule would allow it!

We stayed 4 nights in Piccolo Locanda and would have stayed longer if we could. It's a very cosy place with a warm ambiente, the rooms are painted in bright colours, the staff helped us with everything we needed. The view from the rooftop terrace where we climbed up every night to enjoy a Cusquena beer was just perfect. And... More

We stayed here for 3 nights before we did the Inca Trail and loved it! The hostel is tucked up away from the town center on a hill so it feels very safe. There are quite a few stairs leading up to the entrance but it was great practice for the hike we were about to embark on. The rooms... More

Booked one night in a female dorm. It turned out to be a room with just one bunkbed. Payed only 15 dollar including breakfast. The room was clean, bed was comfy though the matrass a bit to soft to my taste. Breakfast was nice with good quality products. This hostal is only 5 minutes from the main plaza.....but maybe a...

Piccola Locanda is a cute adorable family run location. We stayed there in the Cecilia room which was really lovely with a nice view of the Plaza de Armas. If you are not in good shape, you might have some problems climbing all the steep steps to get to the Piccola Locanda! The hotel has a nice Italian restaurant which... More

The staff and accommodations are perfect. For a great view enjoy balcony with a coffee or drink. The stairs getting up from the town square are a great warm up for you trip to Machu Piccu and the sacred valley. They will have recommendation on the best places to eat. You must try the Cuy.

“There are rooms with private bathrooms but if you don't mind sharing a bathroom it is cheaper to book a room without one.”
