Staff is very friendly and helpfull. Hugo the manager is a real good guy and happy to help arranging tours (at good prices). Location is good, about 10 minutes walking to Cuzco center.

The road from the center to the hotel is pretty steep, so take your time, especially when you are not yet used to the altitude. Actually it is quite a nice walk to burn some calories after dinner in the center.

i stayed here with a friend for 4 nights. The hostel itself is not too far from the city center, but for those who prefer to walk, it is a bit of a steep climb as the hotel is located on one of the hills overlooking the city. A lot of the taxis will not take you directly to the hotel, since the street in front of the hotel is not paved.
The room on 3rd floor was decent by South American standards. couple of observations from our trip:
1. Room . The view from the room was amazing, overlooking the whole city.The hot shower is more of a trickle. It can get pretty cold at night for those not used to cold weather. The room itself doesnt come with a heater, but you have to ask the front desk for one and they bring up a portable heater which is more than adequate. Room is equipped with a old style CTV, but i never watched it
2. Breakfast - it was very meager even by south american standards (bread, jelly, yogurt, sliced melons). I was shocked when the lady at the restaurant told us that we could only have one cup of coffee!
3. Staff - very helpful and courteous. called taxis for us and gave us useful tips. The travel agent that works with the hostal helped organize all the trips for us based on the number of days. also, the hotel charges extra 5% for paying with a credit card

Room Tip: ask for a room on one of the higher floors. request a heater in winter check out the terrace

Hostal Qorikilla is the best hostal in Peru. Nice rooms, excellent customer service, friendly staff, very central, the rooms were nice and clean. We stayed in a 2 bed room, we paid almost the same as the 6 mix beds in other hostals. I strongly recommend this Hostal for everyone that is vising Cusco. Hasta

This quaint 4 story hostal is situated on top of a hil over looking the entire city of cusco. The hostal is nicely decorated, always clean and provided very comfortable beds. It gets a little chilly at night but the beds have nice warm duvet comforters that keep you warm. The hostal provides free wifi , pick up from the airport and continental breakfast. the owners Hugo and carlos are very freindly and helpful. They suggested local restaurants, directions around the city and allowed us to store our luggage there when we went on our 4 day inca trail. My favorite part of the hostal was the roof top terrace where you could watch the sun set. I would recommedn this hostal and would stay there again.

I am writing this review as after reading the last 2 entries I was wondering if I was staying at the wrong hotel :). I have been travelling in Peru for 6 months now and needed a place that was quiet and nice for a break before heading into Bolivia. I searched high and low in Cusco with very little success unless I wanted to pay over $50 which I did not. I then came across this place through trip advisor and made a deal for 10 nights. I have a wonderful room with a great bed and hot water. This place is spotless. They are cleaning all the time. I went on trips to Machu and the Sacred Valley and always returned to a clean room and the quiet is priceless. Also when I went on the roof I discovered the VIEW. You can see the plaza and all the churches from this view point and not a bad place for a beer or glass of wine after walking around all day. Also my friends stayed in the matrimonial suite and had this view from there room.
They have also arranged taxis for me and my friends and told us the price range for the taxis so we were not cheated. I know they were fair as like I said I have been in Peru a long time. This hotel is great if you want some real peace and quiet for a night or more. I highly recommend it. As far as the stairs go if there to much grab a taxi for 5-7 soles but good conditioning for your trekking :).

Room Tip: The matrimonial suite if you are a couple :) 3rd floor

If you like rooms with smelly toilets, dry blood/pubes on the bed sheets and paint peeling off the walls, then Qorikilla is your place. Additionally, if you enjoy it when the receptionist tries to fleece you for $30 when you complain about the above and ask to leave, read on. According to the terms and conditions of our booking, if you want to cancel the reservation at short notice, you're obliged to pay for one night ($30). However, the receptionist wanted us to pay for two nights despite having the booking confirmation in front of him which stated otherwise. Not being able to speak Spanish, I did find the inevitable confrontation between my girlfriend and the receptionist highly amusing. Spanish arguments need to be televised ASAP.

That said, the view from out room overlooks Cusco city and makes for an excellent photo opportunity. Walking back up the seemingly neverending set of steps to the hostel when your rear end resembles that back of the batmobile and you're suffering from altitude sickness is not so pleasant. Some taxi drivers even refused to take us there at night, saying it was too far from the plaza! I must admit that the courtesy lift from the bus terminal was much appreciated though.

It is really a shame that I have to write a bad review forthis cozy hostel. We stayed there for 5 nights, left our luggage there, when we went to Machu Picchu, came back for one more night and everything worked wonderful. We even told our friends to stay there because they were so nice and friendly. The rooms were small but nice and we had a wonderful view overlooking Cuzco. It is a 10 minutes walk to the City centre and to come back it goes steep uphill. The breakfast could have been a bit richer, but we are already used the south american way of breakfast.
But what happened when we left was incredible! The recepcionist organized a transport by car to the train station for MP and back and told us that this guy could also get us bus tickets to Arequipa.
We told this guy that we needed 4 tickets to Arequipa and that we wanted to travel with Cruz del Sur as we heard that this would be the best bus company. He told us it was 140 Pesos per person (ca. 50 US$) and that was the price indicated on the homepage. We gave him the money.
On the travelling day he came to the hotelroom in the morning and told us, that Cruz del Sur had a technical problem with the bus and that he could get us tickets for another company, Oltursa, with the same standards. This would be 10 Pesos less per person. As we did not know, what else to do, we believed him and agreed. Later we checked the website of Oltursa and found out, that the price was 90 Pesos per person! We went down to Hugo, the recepcionist and told him about the issue. Hugo called Norberto (?), the guy and spoke to him. Than he told us, that the price on the homepage was not correct, but we would get 20 Pesos per person back.
We should have been picked up by Norberto in front of the hotel. But instead, Hugo told us to walk down the street, that he was waiting down there. Strange, isn't it? We did so and found a tiny little taxi (for 4 persons plus 4 big and 4 small backpacks!) although Norberto told us the day before he would come with a big car! There was a woman handing out the bus tickets and 80 Pesos.
As it was dark, we did not check the bus tickets and went to the bus terminal. And then we saw on the tickets, they were worth 90 Pesos each! So Norberto and probably Hugo as well earned 30 Pesos per person!
It is really sad, that the hostel is working with people like this. We were really happy staying there and also left a generous tip at check out. But obviously they are involved, otherwise Hugo could have helped, paying the right prices! I would not recommend to stay there, although we had a lovely stay....
