“Great location, and an unbeatable view of Cusco from the living area.”
Reviewed 18 October 2010

This hostel is amazing! The staff are so friendly and give you all the info you need. It´s at the top off a hill but it´s good practice for the Machu Picchu trek, and taxis are very cheap any way. It´s about 5 mins from the main square. The hostal has a really homely feel and it you´re guaranteed to meet some cool people there. Also, the breakfast is first class by hstal standards. It consists of coffee, milk, pancakes, jam, bread, eggs (fried or scramled) and tea. Internet facilities are good and lunge areas have a fantastic view of cusco and the surrounding mountains. In the evening, there is sometime not an english speaker on duty, but that never caused us a problem. I highly recommend this hostal.

It was good enough I suppose but I wouldnt stay there again.Mostly bcos of the location..It was soooo high up...With the bags it was really difficult to get to..OK,we're not fit enough but still..And it was absolutely freezing!!!We ate breakfast wearing hats and coats,taking a shower was unbearable..
But it did have a fantastic view of Cuzco and free internet and the staff were very nice.
All in all it wasnt a disaster but Im sure there were better places.

Beautiful hostal with all the amenities required of a gringo: internet, wifi, hot water, etc... What sets this place apart from others, the view, the hospitality and the comforts from home which make the place so cozy and lovable. The location isn't great if you want to be lazy, however, if you burn it, you will certainly earn it: because the views are wonderful and picturesque.
