It is good place with family atmosphere. Owner is very helpful and warm. She can organise a lot of activities if you need. Rooms are clean and big. 6 soles for taxi from bus station. This was the best hostel in Peru I have ever met. Thank you Mama for all your arrengements.

Pros: The staff were very warm, and did their best to help us with everything from laundry to restaurant recommendations, to weighing our bags. The breakfast is basic but tasty. The courtyard common areas are beautiful and comfortable.

Cons: The location is a little off the beaten path, about 20 minutes from the Plaza de Armas. It's not really that far, but be aware that it isn't on the main tourist drag. We had laundry done twice, and both times there were missing items, so be sure to keep a list of what you gave them (they were able to find everything in the end). The walls are very thin, you can hear everyone around you. Our shower was a bit much for our first-world sensibilities, with exposed wiring in the shower head. The final bill was handwritten on a sheet of graph paper, and payment in cash was required.

We appreciate you taking a few minutes to write about us, your kind words about our service and the friendly atmosphere of our common area and the delicious breakfasts.
It is true that when we did the laundry service we deliver some clothes first and then the others, was because not all were dry at 7 pm, at which time we delivered the first package, we wanted to rush to serve you better and give you what was ready, Miss charged of this service had no opportunity to explain this detail.We hope the next time we will have a dryer machines that hopellly will help us to do the laundry faster.
Kind regards
Mercedes

We stayed in cusco for several days and this hostel was just like our home. The host helped us to handle lots of problems! Our vacation would be a nightmare without her! Thanks you, Mama. This hostel will be my first choice in Cusco!! It's really really nice!!

We were pick up from the airport free of charge and on time. As soon as we arrived to the hostel, we were provided with coca tea. Our room was spacious and clean. The hostel was very quiet and comfortable. Although we only stayed a few hours at the hostel, the bathroom (small) provided us with consistent hot water and toiletries. The beds were comfortable and surrounding neighborhood safe.

The hostel is outside of the tourist area. It's 30-45 min walk to Plaza de Armas. It could be good since prices are significantly cheaper on everything outside of plaza de Armas. Also we only stayed 5 hours at the hostel but still had to pay the full price which is understandable but a discount would of been nice.

My crew and I (4 men) stayed at Casa Mama in Cusco. We were greeted with a warm welcome from Mama herself. She immediately books us a complete roundtrip package to Machu Picchu (shuttle to train station, round trip train first class to Aguascalientes, shuttle to the entrance to Machu Picchu, entrance to the Inca Ruins and the trek up the Huanapichu "the rock" she got us the best rates in town. The hotel is nice and clean, the staff is very nice. The room we stayed in was big with 4 twin beds and hot water showers. The comp breakfast was great. Cab ride to the center is 5 minutes for 10 soles.

The owner/manager worked hard to make us feel welcome. Our room was somewhat cluttered, with a very small bathroom that was sub-par for cleanliness. Despite advertising free airport pick-up and drop-off, we ended up paying for the pre-arranged ride to the bus terminal. Breakfast was very basic, much more limited than all other "hostals" we stayed at. Overall, this was not a bad experience but we would certainly look for alternatives.

Unfortunatly it was a misunderstanding, we never promised a free drop service, we usually offer the pick-up service from the asirport for free as a courtesy of us, we have very low prices and excellent service, so would be imposible to offer many thing for free.
Thank you for appreciated the service of our staff.
We offer milk, just made coffee, home made jam, fire baked breads, butter and fresh fruits juice every day, fresh eggs, fried or scrambled according to each guest, so sorry it was not enought.
Kind regards
Mercedes
