Quechuas palace was surprisingly, an amazing stay. After discussing with my travel mate, we decided this was the best stay within four whole journey of Peru. We received 5 star service in every way. They allowed us to check in extremely early and carried our bags to our room. They made dinner reservations for us, breakfast was good. Internet, super... More

Just on the border of the city-center, this place has clean rooms (incl. bath-room), comfy bed and an amazing breakfast-buffet (lots of bread, cereals, yogurt, fruits, meat and much more)! Shower had good water-pressure and hot-water all day long. Staff was friendly and helpful. Wifi is stable, but only fast enough in the lobby where it can get a bit... More

Would highly recommend this place for its decent prices, cleanliness, good shower, yummy buffet breakfast, friendly staff and convenient location (if you don't mind a little walk up a hill to get the heart pumping). Cable TV too.. Helpful during the rugby World Cup!

This was a quiet and friendly hostel I stayed in for a few nights when visiting Puno and Lake Titicaca. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I stayed during the low season and had a dorm room to myself one night. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. Bathrooms in the dorms were very clean and showers were hot. Great... More

This was a lovely hostel but it was the most expensive I stayed in but I felt like a bit of luxury. More like a hotel than an hostel which did affect the atmosphere a little although as a single traveller I was still able to meet and chat to people at breakfast. It has a great location and the...

This place was awesome. We arrived early at 5 am on a bus from Cusco and we were allowed to check into our room at 5 am which was awesome! There was also a great view of the city from the room as well. Breakfast was great and plentiful and the people at the front desk were always very helpful.... More

After one horrible night in the Ollanta Inn in Puno, we decided to change the hostel and it was the right decision. The Quechuas Backpackers is a great place to stay with hot water and working wifi connection. The breakfast also included frutes, which is not usual in Peru. We had a room in the 4th floor and thus a... More
