Reviewed 28 May 2011

We stayed here for three (non-consecutive) nights in early May. I was quite happy with the place!

The rooms were clean, the showers reliably had hot water, the linens were in good conditions, and each room had a space heater or cold nights.

The kitchen/restaurant was good. At reasonable prices, it offered a short but diverse menu of food even in the later hours of the night.

The staff is very friendly and flexible. When we were running late on our way to the bus station on our first morning, they let us put off paying for our first night until we returned two days later.

You can see the direct impact of the charitable aspect -- school kids were coming or going almost every time we entered or exited the hotel.

Only cautionary note: We stored a piece of luggage at Ninos for the two days we were up at Macchu Pichu. We had no problems, but I did notice that other hotel guests could have accessed the storage area, so you probably shouldn't have them store luggage containing valuables.

My sister and I stayed 3 nights at Ninos 1, in Cusco. It was such a cool little hotel and so very close to everything. The beds were comfortable and the shared bathrooms and showers were spotless. The shower had better pressure than my own in the states. The food and service in their cafe was amazing. The breakfast was 1st class and the fresh bread and jam was the best I have ever had. If your looking for a inexpensive Hostel, with good food and service at a very reasonable rate, look no further. If your a snob and need a tone of extra space and luxury, you will be dissapointed.

I stayed here 3 separate nights on a whirlwind Peru trip. We had 3 different rooms, and all were unique but charming. The folks at the hostel were incredibly nice, the food was reasonably priced (and good), showers were hot, and the bathrooms+rooms were clean. I'd definitely stay here again -- it's really cool to see the kids filter in during the morning in their uniforms. It's a great cause to support, but that's just a bonus.

We stayed in both Ninos 1 and Ninos 2 hotel. They were both great with nice rooms and strong showers with lots of hot water. The food from the cafeteria was also very tasty.

Nice place to stay away from the noise of town, but literally 5minutes to the main plaza.
Always hot water.
Breakfast: decent around 12 sol wide choice of options.
Friendly staff, good WiFi connection.

And an ethical option too.

We really enjoyed our stay at Ninos Hotel. The room was very clean, very comfortable. The food - and the coffee at the cafe were great. We used the laundry service and our clothes were back when they said they would be. It was a short walk to t he plaza. The staff were helpful and great about arranging taxis for us when needed. We also took a tour of the Children's project and would recommend that for anyone staying there. This is a well run, practical project.

Room Tip: Make sure that you book ahead during busy times.
