In September 2013 my husband and I stayed 3 nights at El Balcon before leaving for our 4-day Inka Trail hike, then we returned to El Balcon for 1 more night after our hike. El Balcon kept our luggage locked away at no charge while we were away on the Inka Trail. We found all of the staff to be friendly and very willing to make our stay enjoyable. The complimentary breakfasts were delicious and the staff even served soup for us as late at 9:30 pm one night for a nominal charge. The rooms were clean and we loved the décor and the view. I picked this hostal because of the lovely courtyard and the way it was different than a standard hotel. Also, the price was reasonable. I would definitely stay at El Balcon again.
