“Great views but not for light sleepers”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2014

Positives - Great views of Cusco, comfy beds, nice breakfast, clean and hot water.
Negatives - Rooms are cold (though the duvets and blankets help), breakfast is quite early 6-9 but don't worry about missing it as they wake you up for it even if you don't want to be woken up, the hostel echoes a lot making it noisy, especially in the mornings. If you pay in Soles, the rate the hostal uses is not only higher than the official rate but higher than the other hostals we've stayed at in Peru.

We chose this hostal as we wanted to relax and get some rest before all the trekking and sightseeing but unfortunately the noise prevented this.

Room Tip: Do not sleep on 3rd floor or in rooms 202 & 201 - too noisy especially in morning as breakfast i...

This hotel was on the hill overlooking the city but only about 5 minutes' walk from the wonderful squares. The staff were incredibly warm, friendly and helpful, especially as we got caught up in the strike in Cusco which threatened our visit to Machu Picchu. The hotel itself is a bit noisy, especially if there are late-night revelers, as sound reverberates up the open stairway. The inclusive breakfast commences at 6am to accommodate early tour departures, but that also means no 'sleeping-in'. Our room on the third floor was directly below the kitchen and breakfast terrace so may have been noisier than rooms lower down. It was a compact room with a steady stream of hot water and a consistent wifi connection. Recommended.

Room Tip: second floor rooms might be less noisy than the third floor

We stayed here a total of 3 nights before the Sacred Inca Trail and a further night following it. The rooms were spotlessly clean and the beds were very comfy. However, there seems to be no heating system so when it's cold you really feel it. After our first night in a bedroom on the 3rd floor we asked to be moved as we were right below the kitchen and the lady doing the breakfast set up, sounded like she was a herd of elephants above us. They did move us to a lower floor but didn't seem overly happy about it. On the morning before we set off the for the inca trail the shower was freezing cold and it seems the water is on a timer so if you're leaving before 6am beware! Suffice it to say I started the Inca trail unshowered! The views on the roof top are stunning and we found it a good spot to even catch a few rays. The walk up to it is certainly good training for anyone attempting the inca trail. The free transfer from the airport was certainly a bonus but the breakfasts were really basic. Sugar puffs a bread roll and fruit. I would have at least expected something cooked (eggs?) for the price of the room. This is certainly not a cheap option and I would have expected a better level of service for the price. Also the only place to store your valuables is in the managers office who is only there sporadically so we found it quite a mission to retrieve our valuables when we needed to as no one told us that he wasn't available so for one night, we were without money which sucked!

Stayed here 4 nights in total on the third floor.

Room was cosy, clean and tidy with a good wall mounted cable tv. Room got cleaned well everyday with all my things folded which was a nice surprise. The shower was pretty pathetic but could probably be solved by replacing the shower head.

The hotel, as others have mentioned has fantastic views, but as a result is located a bit of a climb from the plaza.

Breakfast was a little disappointing, with bread, jam and ham, Cereal and melon.

It's major downfall is that the hotel is very noisy. On level 3 I could still hear people having conversations in reception! And for this reason I think there are better alternatives closer to the plaza for a similar price. It is also cold and as a result the communal area on level 4 and in the lobby doesn't feel very welcoming. Make sure to ask for a heater for your room.

Also be warned that you have to pay cash when checking out which wasn't made clear to me and was a bit inconvenient given the closest ATMs are near the plaza and I was departing at 4am the next morning.

Overall, a good solid option if your looking for somewhere away from the busyness of the plaza area.

Ok, this will be short and sweet. We are very experienced travellers (last trip was 2.5 years on road and 35 countries in one go) so consider ourselves qualified to make an informed and balanced review. Stayed for 2 nights. Room quite good and clean, breakfast ok, tv, wifi etc all ok.

Ok, now for the bad parts...

Room was freezing in October - don't underestimate the difficulty of the stairs leading up to the hostal. Its not far from the centre but thats ok when downhill - on the way back you're gonna die. Look for something else closer to centre and on the same level.

We had a little accident with some red wine spilt on the duvet covers and that's where we really saw what the owner was all about. He wanted 50 soles (about USD$18) to wash them. Ridiculous we have a restaurant and know it comes out in hot water no probs. He really insisted even though I found a proper laundry on same street which would charge only 20 soles. I offered to take them to the laundry, pay and give them the ticket. The lady at reception agreed at first and then all of a sudden came rushing back in saying the owner wouldn't allow us to use that laundry (surprise, surprise!!) and had to use his laundry. That's when we realised that no matter what he was out to screw us. Ok, not a lot of money but we hate it in principle when people try to rip you off just coz you're a gringo. Shame coz it ruined Cusco for us the second time around and also was our completion of the seven wonders of the world.

In short, staff were nice and honest just owner is a greedy little man. My advice is to look for somewhere else (plenty of options). Oh and don't book tours through Vicky their travel agent as we did a 1 day to MP for $260 each and ended up spending an hour in a van packed with others while the driver tried to grab people off the street. Ended up arriving back at Hostal at 11pm instead of 8:30 so no going out for dinner that night.

Room Tip: Ask if you can get a heater, rooms are freezing

Al dia siguiente el personal de House Keeping ingreso a su habitacion encontro un desastre todo pero todo movido las dos fundas de la camas que son blancas y de buena calidad estan con manchas grandes de vino tinto como 3 a 4 en cada cama y eso traspaso al duvet , y bueno cuando dicho pasajero llego a de su tour QUE NO LO REALIZO CON NINGUN PERSONAL DEL HOSTAL NI AGENCIA DEL HOSTAL lo realizo con una Agencia que el contrato . El personal de la noche le indico que tendra que pagar la lavanderia para sacar esas manchas de las 4 ropas de cama y PARA ESO ESTE SEÑOR HIZO OTRO ESCANDALO Y DIJO QUE EL ERA GERENTE DE UN RESTAURANTE Y QUE ESAS MANCHAS SALEN FALSO y no quiso pagar lo que se le cobro y AQUI VINO SU CHANTAJE DIGNO DE UN PROFESIONAL QUE SE DEDICA A ESTO cuando hablo con el personal le dijo este SEÑOR PAUL HOPKINS QUE SI LE COBRARIAN ALGO POR EL DAÑO PONDRIA UNA MALA REPUTACION Y UN COMENTARIO PESIMO EN TRIP ADVISOR QUE EL SABIA COMO MANEJAR ESO Y EL PERSONAL LE DIJO QUE LO PUSIERA PERO TENDRIA QUE PAGAR .

Para ello yo tuve que subir a la habitacion y decirle que necesitaba hablar con el y bajo SIN ZAPATILLAS ES TODO UN MALCRIADO y me dijo que el comentario a TRIP ADVISOR ya lo puso y que se iba a retirar de la habitacion y asi fue bajo y tiro la llave DIGNO DE UNA PERSONA MALEDUCADA Y MENTIROSA QUE ESTAS DOS PERSONAS NO SON GERENTES DE NADA SON TIMADORES SINICOS Y MAL EDUCADOS vinieron a Cusco y BUs y se fueron en Bus VAYA GERENTES PUDIENTES . y si soy joven como el indica pero honrado y si hago algun daño lo pago sin chantajear a la personas tengan cuidado con estos pasajeros .

I really liked the hostel and the rooms, simple but very comfortable and with all basic needs (comfortable beds, hot showers, TV, clean bathrooms). The staff at the hotel was great, they were very nice and helpful and were genuinely interested in us enjoying the city. We had the chance to stay in 3 rooms since were were in Cusco a few times during our trip. Most of them were really great except for one that the shower was not very good so we barely had any water. It also can get noisy since you can hear everything throughout the hostel. It also gets cold so make sure to take warm clothes for sleeping. Another thing is that they work with a travel agency and we didn't like the agency at all. We felt like we were being ripped off and the tours were not that great. They say they pick you up from the airport and take you to the hostel and they started selling us a million tours and it was overwhelming and almost make you feel like you need to buy one since they picked you up. The company is called Andean Adventures. They were very unprofessional and left us in a city when they were supposed to pick us up from the train and take us to Cusco. We recommend going to the Plaza of Armas and visit different agencies before booking your trip to Machu Picchu.

Room Tip: It is very close to the downtown area but it is on a hill so you have to go through a steep hill so...

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.
