We stayed here for one night after a busy day at Machu Picchu. It was basic but very clean, comfortable, towels and soap provided, a lovely lady working there who was willing to negotiate on the rate and we got a great nights sleep. It was very quiet and was just what we wanted. No wifi but we used the free wifi from the cafe on the corner of the square!

Aguas Calientes is maybe the more expensive town in Perú. Las Bromelias is one of the few hostel that have a raisonable price. But rooms are ugly, humid and dark. And the service was just sufficient. I had a good treatement everywhere in Peru, not in Aguas Calientes-Machu Picchu. It‘s a pity, because tourists will associate a wonderful landscape with a town-for-making-money.

My husband was doing the four day Inca trail hike, while I was going up by train and meeting him there. In order to be at Machu Picchu early morning when he arrived I needed to take the train up the day before and spend the night in Aguas Calientes (also called Machupicchu Pueblo). We also thought that after the long hike it would be nice to relax up there enjoying the hot springs.

But when I started doing the research on accomodation, I was amazed what place wanted and the reviews were pretty bad for most hostels. I finally found a blog that recommended simply going up there by train and walking around town to find a place. Not a lot of people stay so the blog said there is usually accomodation and then you can check out a place or two. Since I had found nothing better on the internet I dedecided to follow this tip. The person did say in the end they stayed at Hospedaje Bromelias so at least I had the name of something.

And was I glad I had a name... minutes before the train arrived it started to rain. Not just a drizzle, but a torrential down pour. The people that were heading straight to Machu Picchu were soaked within minutes. I was doing my best to dodge under awnings, but there was not much so I too was pretty wet. Plus it was so rainy I could not see signs for hostels or figure out where things were. Luckily whenever I asked a local about Hospedaje Bromelias they pointed me in the right direction and I was there in a few miutes.

When I arrived at Hospedeje Las Bromelias I was dripping wet, but the receptionist greated me with a big smile and agreed to show me a few rooms. The hostel is spread out on several floors. There is no ceiling over the stairs, so they were very slippery from the rain. I wanted a double (matrimonial) bed, ensuite room. The first two were very dark and had no windows. The third one had a window that opened onto the stairs and if you cocked your head just right you could see the mountains.

The room was clean, the bathroom small but functional, and the mattress fine. Plus the price was right, at 50 soles it was about half the price of places I had found on line. With the rain still pouring I did not want to look further so I took it.

Being there alone the first night I wanted to feel safe, and I did.

The room was small with nothing but the bed and an upright chair (that I positioned to use as a night stand). There was hot water and it was far enough from the river (two streets) that there were no mossies which other reviews led me to believe was a problem in Aguas Calientes.

It was just off the central plaza, but unfortunately, there was really nothing interesting about the plaza. To get to the good stuff, you walk across the plaza and up a street towards the hot springs. All along that street are restaurants, good massage places, and little stores. There were also several hostels that I would check out if I ever return here.

The place in Aguas Calientes to avoid it the river businesses. It is lined with over-priced hostels and resturants that charge more for less than the ones on the back road. Pretty much all the tour groups end their Machu Picchu trip by meeting at one of these restaurants so they get loaded with tired hikers. It was a rip off area.

As for the hot spings, well they were probably not worth staying a night for. The complex has several out door pools and when we were there it was packed with Peruvian High School kids. They were loud and splashing and made the spa feel like a school gym. Bummer.

Getting back to Hospedaje Las Bromelias... we slept fine here. It was definately nothing fancy but at least we got what we paid for and we felt it was good value for an over priced town.

Clean, quiet hostel with ensuite bathrooms. Double room for 50 soles per night. It's not a bad place and it's a good value for a hostel in Aguas Calientes, and okay security.
