We booked this hostal with the agency Chaska Tours. We got picked up at the airport, and to the door of the hostal. The hostal is located in San Blas. A really nice part of Cusco city. We felt really safe here. Just 3-4min walk to Placa de Armas.
At the hostal they where expecting us. They carried our luggage and showed us our rooms. They served us Coca tee in the cosy patio.
The rooms where great - for us. We had a room with one double bed at 1 floor, and we had stairs that lead up to "half 2.floor"/"small addic". Spacious enough for 2 single beds, as we traveled with our 2young children! GREAT for us :)
The rooms have private bathrooms, cleaned every day. TV with many optional channels.
I think some would have problems with the fact that they didnt have chairs in the room and a proper dresser. No problem for us, as we where out exploring the city and surroundings all day long. And we kept the clothes in our suitcase, and in the selfs that where in the room.
We could aslo gather our dirty clothes and leave it at the desk in the morning, and they would be dry and neatly folded when we came back in the evening. This for a small fee.
There where also EXELLENT wireless connection! That was very useful for us as we where blogging our trip.
The best of it all where the dedicated hostal employers. They never said No to anything. If we wanted heaters they brought heaters, extra pillows, extra towels. They can also be very helpful if one want to make a trip in the sorroundings and so on. At breakfast we requested oat porrige, they made it. If we wanted boiled, fried, scrambled egg, they made it.
The manager Luis is a great manager. Very helpful and always smiling. The other boys working on the "floor", where unusually helpful and dedicated. Really GOOD people!
We stayed at this hostal for 2 and 1/2 week. And this is a place we would definitely saty again!
