Llipimpac
Ranked #19 of 517 Speciality Lodging in Cusco
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 September 2012

Myself & my partner stayed at the Llipimpac hostel (but it's really more like a guest house) for 2 nights prior to our Inca trek and then for 1 night after we came back.

It really is a little hidden charm - so much character! Each room (well from what we seen) opens out into a little courtyard. Our rooms (stayed in 2) were very spacious and the bathrooms were the best we had in our 2 & half weeks between Peru & Bolivia! (booked mainly double rooms in hostels)
Breakfast was good - usual bread, eggs, juice etc but also some yoghurt & granola! The staff were very friendly and helpful.

It's a good location - roughly 10 minute walk to Plaza Del Arms.

Overall - great place to stay and good value for money!

Beautiful little guesthouse with a great location - close enough to the main part of town to be convenient (about 5-10 min walk to the Plaza das Armas), but far enough away to be quiet and relaxing. Great breakfast, spacious and charming room in a pretty little courtyard. Only small downside would be that it can be difficult getting back in to the guesthouse at night time (we had to wait a while one night for someone to let us in). All in all though a perfect place to spend a few days in Cusco.

Beautiful little find. So much charm in this little place we took toons of pictures. Breakfast is reasonably good, there's an abundance of tea to choose from. We really enjoyed our stay there.
Location is only 1-2 mins to corricancha.
It was a little hard to find but you just need to look at the building with the inca walls (trademark) and you'll see the hotel name written there. Walk all the way down to the black gate to get buzzed in.
Clean, excellent staff (very common in Peru), excellent bedding (not as common in Peru)
Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Make sure you follow instructions on how to get there.

Great hostel to stay with the family. It is conveniently close to the main square but is not affected by the noise of the city due to its priviledged location. It has comfortable and very clean rooms that have a lot of character. The staff are very friendly and helpful. More like a BB than a hostel. Breakfast was very healthy and good.

I stayed two nights here and it was a great value. The rooms were clean and cozy, nicely decorated and the staff was excellent, providing us with lots of coca tea and a great breakfast. The location was excellent, close to museums, plazas and shopping. It was an easy stroll to find a great restaurant. A travel agent appeared soon after we checked in to help us arrange our tours in the sacred valley. At first we felt a little hustled but everything we did turned out fine. Our guide /driver for the sacred valley didn't speak much English but the Macchu Pichu guide she provided was top notch and in retrospect the convenience of having an agent plan out your priorities and pick you up at the station was great and the cost reasonable. We had to stay in another hotel our third night as this was booked and we sure wish our third night had been here. Only negative- no credit cards so pack some cash.

Room Tip: we had an upstairs room which was nice considering the old wood floors creak a bit

We stayed with our family of 5 and were very impressed by the quality of this lovely hostel for such a reasonable price. We stayed for a number of days, as it is in the perfect location for walking to the Plaza de Armas. When we arrived, there was an agent at the hostel that helped us arrange our trip to Machu Picchu and the other sites around Cusco. This was totally unexpected and so we were a bit leary at first about at first. However, it was absolutely worth it to have them take care of those arrangements for us. They did a superb job of arranging everything to the letter, and our time went very smoothly as a result. The staff at the hostal even looked after our luggage while we were gone for the two day trip to Machu Picchu. I would recommend this place to any traveller. The only small drawback was that we do not speak Spanish. Even so, at the Hostal Llipimpac they did their vey best to make our time in Cusco a wonderful success.

When you first see the hotel you will be shocked. You would never expect something like this it looks terrible. But once you go to your room it is beautifull and amazing.
