We recently spent 4 nights at Las Rocas and it was excellent value for money. We took the advice of other travellers and decided not to book in advance but to look around until we found something we liked. Up near the entrance to the hot springs we found Las Rocas. We asked to see a few different room types and selected our favorite which was on the top floor. The room had a wonderful view of the valley and we had the sounds of the cascades coming through the windows to help us sleep every night. The beds were so comfy and the sheets were so soft it was hard to get up every morning to go exploring. The heavy blankets kept us warm too. The family that runs the hostel was more than happy to help with anything we asked for - extra towels, pillows, toilet paper, laundry and they even organised lunch for us for our trip to Maccu Piccu and called it breakfast (which is included in what is an excellent rate for Aguas Calientes). Excellent value for Aguas Calientes. As is the case with most Aguas Calientes places, the hot water is notoriously unreliable but when it was working, it was one of the best showers we have had in Peru - great showerhead and water pressure.
Tips: Ask to view the rooms available first and make sure you get one at the back of the hostel with a view (Some rooms don't have views and others are close to the breakfast area which would be noisy at 5am every morning). Im not sure if I would stay here after doing the Inka Trail - its a bit of a climb up the hill - but if your after value for money, a comfy bed to sleep in and a nice view - this is a great place.
