Hostal El Triunfo

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The staff here are absolutely incredible. We were in & out several times while visiting multiple cities, and they always volunteered to hold some luggage for us, gave us good info, and helped us in any way possible. The rooms are comfortable, but the showers take a bit to warm up. The breakfast is OK, but it's not horrible, either. Would stay here again just for the staff and central location.

This wasn't at all like I imagined a hostel, having never experienced one. It was clean as a 5 star hotel. Quiet and looking out over beautiful tile rooftops, and a chapel on the hill in the distance. The location is perfect walking distance around the old town. Breakfast wasn't over the top, but nice--fresh fruit, bread and jam, eggs, great coffee and tea. The staff was excellent!!!! They helped us arrange everything for our Machu Picchu excursion and had helpful tips about anything we asked. We found Peruvians to be very professional when it comes to their tourism. The altitude was difficult for me ( I live at sea level), so I warn anyone to give themselves time to acclimate and drink their "coca tea" and lots of water--hydrate!!! Peruvians are lovely, warm, respectful people. GO if you have the chance--enjoy!!

Our room was very large with a futon for lounging. Very clean, no complaints. One night it was a little rowdy, but most nights it was quiet. Breakfast was good enough for taking the edge off, some eggs, cereals, coca tea, fruit, meats, cheeses and breads. But the staff was what made it so good. Everyone was so helpful and happy to do it. Don't hesitate to stay here. It's close to Plaza de Armas and plenty of restaurants to walk to. This was very important to us because we got hit with altitude sickness and didn't want to go far for dinner or much else.

Arrived at 6 a.m. after a night bus ride and happy to know that our room, although it's quite small, would be ready at 6:30 a.m. so that we could take a rest. Basic breakfast is included. When enquired about Machu Picchu Tour, a tour agent was sent to us so that we did not need to stroll along the street to find one. It's centrally located and near to everything that tourists need. Recommended.

I stayed here for a couple of nights while I checked Machu Picchu of my bucket list. Staff were very friendly. Breakfast was fine. Make sure you get a top-floor room to take advantage of the magnificent views.

We stayed at Hostal El Triunfo for two nights. The room was clean and comfortable. The bathroom was nice - although unfortunately there was no hot water the one night. The best part of the Hostal is the location - it is located extremely close to the main plaza.

The hostal is clean, small and affordable. Only complaint is we couldn't find English speaking channels on television, although not really a problem. No time for TV in Cusco. Very close to Patty Irish Public, nice view of the streets, and some view of ancient architecture.

Hostal El Triunfo is an absolutely outstanding lodging option in Cusco. We booked it super last minute (as our plane was preparing for takeoff in the States), yet they were friendly and accommodating, and let us check in super early because our room was ready. The location is phenomenal – we could see the roof of the cathedral thirty feet away out our window! This is a thirty second walk from the Plaza de Armas, so you can’t ask for anything more central. Our room was clean and well-equipped, and quite comfortable. Breakfast was quite tasty, and the receptionists were courteous and helpful. For $65 a night, you can’t beat this place.

Had a confirmed non-refundable reservation and was emailing the property prior to my stay where they confirmed my reservation. We arrived at 9:30PM and they didn't have our room and instead offered us a room at a dodgy hostel nearby (which was much cheaper but we needed to still pay the more expensive El Triunfo rate). We tried to use their WiFi to search for other hotels but it doesn't work. Do yourself a favor and book another property! Not worth risking your vacation with a hostel that overbooks.

We stayed here for 3 days, and loved it. The included breakfast with Elizabeth was very good, the evening receptionist very accommodating, English was spoken by the staff, modern bathroom, plenty of hot water, heater in the room, and the location was the absolute best. The staff gave us great recommendations on places to visit. Some minor nits: the rooms could use some artwork, the flight of stairs up to the rooms, difficult to find, better wifi. We would stay here again, no question..
