FIRST IMPRESSION: Welcomed by the Loki staff who were once again really helpful. The building is a huge restored colonial masterpiece with loads of dorms, plenty of bathrooms and a great view over the city.

STAFF: All the staff were really nice and theres always security at the door to ensure no randomers just wander in.

DORMS: Really comfortable, warm beds and our dorm (room 106) had a little balcony with gorgeous panoramic views. As expected with a party hostel, the dorms were noisy at times with people falling in at all sorts of times but that was expected.

BREAKFAST: The breakfast provided free from the hostel is awful (bread, jam and coffee) but you can buy breakfast however I wouldnt suggest doing this either - when someone gets a fruit salad wrong, you know thres a problem! The rest of the food on the menu is OK but small portions for big prices.

FACILITIES; There is an in-house travel agency which is good for booking trips or doing a walking tour. Sadly as with other Loki´s, there is nowhere to cook your own food or do laundry which can mean a pricey stay.

INTERNET: If youre in the bar or reception, the internet is good but elsewhere you will struggle to connect. The computers provided werent up to much so use the internet cafe at the end of the road.

OTHER; The only thing that I would like to bring up that we found so annoying was a 2am wake up call where management entered our dorm door, turned on the light and started having a loud conversation with other guests. I asked him to turn off the light and talk outside but he ignored me and continued - not cool, man!

Would you stay again? Definately, just preferably without the 2am wake up please!!!

This is by far the best looking hostel we have ever stayed in. Not just in Peru but South America. They have saved this historical building and restored it to it´s former glories in a way you would think it was a 5 star hotel.

The only problem was the occupents of the dorm, turning the light on at 5am having a laugh and a joke but that is not the owners fault.

Unlike most hostels, the place is very clean and even have hand sanitiser in every toilet. The beds are comfortable and have thick duvets to keep you warm. Most importantly the showers are hot and it is cheap.

WARNING! The hostel is located on top of a hill and is over 100 steep stairs up. This is not easy in altitude.

Room Tip: Stay AWAY from the bar.

I never stay in other hostel in Cusco, but Loki is really great and your staff is awesome. Sometimes the rooms with 16 beds can be noiser, but is really quiet at the morning.
I recommend and I'll come back in 2 days.

I think this is the best hostel to meet people and have fun. Rooms are ok but dont expect great service or cleanliness. Prices are really good too.
Something important: dont expect to get private rooms, also the safe boxes doesnt have locks so its recommended to carry your own locks. Also the front desk staff usually wont register your reservation as it is supposed to. So maybe try to have a second option in Cusco just in case.

The hostel it's self is very cold, and there are always people having sex in the rooms... And the bar staff are exceptionally rude especially 'Eliot' who is always taking young girls into the free rooms to do cocaine! This loki gives the rest of them such a bad rep, not to mention the poor location!

Stayed here on recommendation from friends who had stayed a long time ago I'm guessing things have changed since then???

Firstly we booked a 4-6 private room with ensure thinking that being a group of 4 we would get a private room, sadly we were mistaken though. We weren't adverse to sharing, but was then told there are no locks on the room door, as its a shared room which was very frustrating as our luggage didn't all fit in the lockers. The staff were extremely unfriendly no hellos not even acknowledging us whenever we were in the reception area.

Our room had a sink that leaked all over the floor and the bathroom smelled really bad, like sewage. We told the guy in reception at check out, but he didn't seem to care. All the furniture is worn falling apart and old especially the reception area. There is also only wifi in the reception area, which didn't work at all while we were there and wouldn't connect to our iPhones.

The location is quite far from the town centre and is at the top of a very large set of steps

The only decent thing about Loki is the bar is fun and the bar staff are nice. Do yourself a favour and book somewhere else there's many other places to choose from for the same price.
