“One of the best hostels I've stayed at”
Reviewed 25 December 2010

My wife and I booked the private room here on our honeymoon. We were a bit worried because it had only 2 reviews at the time. Upon arrival we discovered that it was brand new. The rooms are enormous and extremely clean, as are the bathrooms. Staff and service are great. Two block walk to the square, perfect location. I highly recommend this hostel.

This place is very new and is not as yet in the guidebooks. The owner is clearly putting some investment in to the place and when the get the communal jacuzzi (about 20 people) and tge possible BBQ area it will be the hottest hostel in Cusco. In the meantime you can enjoy this gem whilst it's still often quiet. varying dorm sizes and the doubled even have a bathtub. Various bathroom and shower blocks throughout the hotel with piping hot water, but have your own towel.

The Beds are massive for dorms. I'm 6'3" with large frame and you could comfortably fit two of me side by side on the extremely comfortably mattresses. Also surprising is that I could sit upright on the bottom bunk and have plenty of headroom to spare. The lockers are large and key is provided.

2-3 minute walk from the main square and with pool table, table tennis, foosball, free wifi (not in rooms), lounge area with large range of DVD's and cable TV, make this a pretty good choice.

You can't be disappointed with it!

I can't believe this place isn't (eco)packed... heh. Brand new beds, new showers, HOT water, a stocked bar and a clean, gorgeous kitchen. I haven't slept this well anywhere in SA, and no worries about bed bugs! It's cheap ($7) if you stay in the 18-bed dorm, where there were only 3 of us last night...

Too new to be in any guidebook, this place is super! The only drawback is hardly anyone knows about it, so it's a bit quiet if you're looking for a party. But if you want a good, clean place to quietly acclimate, I can't recommend EcoPackers enough!

If you want a hostel quiet, big, and friendly this is la best option. I stayed 2 night, have a big room with pipe. The staff always ready for what you want in special Luis and Ramiro.
There is ping pong and minisoccer, i spend good time playing.
