“Fantastic place to stay!”
Reviewed 6 January 2012

I stayed here over the New Year period and had an amazing time! Javier is a wonderful host who simply cannot do enough for you, whether its helping with trips or making sure you're having a good time! Cathy makes a wonderful breakfast and this lovely little family run hostel is a great place to stay, far enough from the hustle and bustle of Plaza de Armas.

We stayed here before and after our inca trail trek. The hostel is run by a great bunch of people who went out of their way to help.

Our first room (4 nights) was large with a double and 2 singles and private bathroom. It was on the lower floor right next to the reception area so it did get a little bit of background noise. Our second room was upstairs and was much quieter.

Rooms were simple but clean, with tv, free wifi and plenty of hot water. There is a nice rec room upstairs with DVDs, books, games, table football and ping pong.

Nice simple breakfasts, laundry service and secure storage whilst away on treks.

Location is in a quiet area, about 10 min walk to the main square

(2009) What a spot, a little hard to find at first as it's located just out of Cusco (about 15 minutes walk), staff were friendly but found it a little hard with our English, The Hostel is in a good location with minimal road noise and is a secure spot with a nice stroll into Cusco down some wonderful old cobble stone streets that have been around since the Inca's. Take your time and explore these street around the Hostel before heading into town. In a nutshell, Safe, Secure, friendly - would stay again

Room Tip: Watch your head on the low beam when you walk in, or you'll end up with a head ache...

Spent 2 nights before and 2 nights after our Inca Trail trek at this hostel and enjoyed our stay. The hostel is located just outside of the main touristy area which we enjoyed and was still within a short walk of the San Blas area. The staff were quite helpful with helping us to find our way around town. We had a number of problems with our flight to Cusco and arranging our Inca Trail trek and the hostel was very accomodating and flexible with our changing itinerary which was greatly appreciated. I would stay here again if I come back to Cusco.

I stayed here because my girlfriend and I were pretty sick at the time, and it was the cheapest option of a twin private room at a place with a good review. However, not only is the hotel super cute/home-y, highly secure, and clearly family run, but the room itself was great! Plenty of outlets, a tv (not usually a huge fan but nice when you're sick with a fever), good natural lighting, night stand with light, and beds with plenty of nice blankets and comfy pillows! It also was attached to a comfortable, semi-private social room (shared with the other private but no one was staying there at the time so the room was all ours) and a private bathroom.
After we were better, we moved to one of the dorms, which was your typical dorm except with the same bedding as the rooms. Highly satisfactory. And they even make your bed.
Oh and that's the biggest thing. The service in this hostel is great–super helpful and not in that way like you feel as though they're trying to get something out of it. Free breakfast every morning before 10 (c'mon it's not even breakfast after 10 anyway). Javier's the main guy and he's the man—always busy but always ready to jump into action. Even called a pharmacist (his wife it turns out) to figure out what we had and what we should do.
Stay at Hospedaje Turistico Recoleta. You won't regret it. Tell them Peter sent you too :)

P.S. I put 4 instead of 5 for location simply because I would imagine that that's pretty much just a measure of distance from Plaza de Armaz for most. However it's easy to navigate, and only about a 10 minute walk, which is good for you anyway and isn't like it's through some weird part of town or anything. We got to hang out with a baby llama on the way one time so yeah, not necessarily a negative.

This hostel had been recommended to us and we were not disappointed. It is about 10 minutes walk from the Plaza Del Armas but en route you can always stop in at Jack's for a full English breakfast if like us you are craving one by this point on your travels. The hostel is very clean, shared bathrooms are fine and the staff are extremely helpful. We were late booking and so availability was limited but the owner Javier went out of his way to make sure we were accommodated. We did have to move rooms and on one night where there was no availability Javier had to arrange for us to stay at another hostel but it was only a few minutes away and was also nice. The hostel was perfect for us as it was quiet and comfortable but close enough to the action. It was a nice walk by day and only 3 soles in a taxi at night. Thanks for a great stay.

There isn't really anything bad to say about is place. The team were all super friendly with good English. They even organized for my wife to be taken to the drs clinic when she got sick and let us stay longer than our origional booking to recover. For the price including breakfast and clean rooms I think it would be hard to find better value in Cusco.
It's about a 15min walk into the main plaza, but safe enough until around 10pm, after that catch a taxi for S3 and your back in a couple of minutes.
Also have bag Holding facilities if your going trekking and a reliable and reasonable laundry service.
