We stopped here for our first night in Cusco, got terribly sick (NOT from the hostal!), and ended up staying for 10 days while we looked for apartments in Cusco. The rooms are basic, but a descent size, and have space heaters. Ours had a bathroom, and we were able to haggle the price down a bit, which was nice. The perks are the common areas, where there are plenty of places to sit, good WI-FI connection, and you can get a great view from the roof (although no tables/chairs up there). The location is also awesome because it's 3 minutes from the Plaza de Armas, and in San Blas, but not far uphill at all! It's not a party hostal, but there was a good mix of mature backpackers, families, and travelers from the continent and beyond. Breakfast was not anything to write home about, but there was basic coffee, tea, bread, and an egg if you asked for it. Plenty of restaurants right out the door, which is good, because there's no guest-use kitchen. Staff was friendly and helpful overall.
Recommended if you're looking for a quiet place to recover or acclimate with medium standards, while still being in the heart of touristy Cusco.
