Recent guest reviews

This hostel was the perfect place to stay in Cusco! The rooms were clean and tidy with high ceilings and windows. Great showers! The location is perfect, and the reception was always super helpful. Taxis were very easy to find on the street and you are just a three minute walk from the town square. I would definitely stay here again!

I have stayed there 3 days, rooms are super clean, they make up your room every single day and bring shampoo etc Reception is very herlpful and always there to help you. They organized my machu picchu trip and I love it . They have coco tea free of charge all day and breakfast is very good. I dont talk about location as if you look at the map you can see it has be best location and in 2 minutes you are in main attractions. Will def be back

Maybe i'm exagerating this because it was after 5 days of treking, but this hostel was awesome! Actually we would believe it is an hotel, really clean room, not noisy even if it's 2 min walk from plaza, hot shower with a good water pressure (by far the best we've seen in Peru), they cleaned the room during the day, very nice and helpful staff, very good breakfast and they even gave us our room in advance when we arrived at 7h am the morning after a overnight bus ride. If i would go back to cusco, i would clearly go there again!!

The staff were super friendly e.g. they ordered a taxi for us and came downstairs to ensure we took the right one. Breakfast was the best so far in our trip and the rooms were extremely clean. They also had a laundry service which was perfect.

Great experience. Room was newly remodeled and clean. Nice hot shower. Decent wifi. Has a beautiful view of city. Near Plaza de Armas. Breakfast includes pineapple, papaya, cereal, eggs, bread, yogurt, cheese, ham, tea, and juice. They will clean/dry clothes for 7 soles/kilo (done same day). They are happy to arrange tours (and notably the tours were cheaper than several I saw in the street). They will also store storage as well if doing Inka Trail.

Great quality hotel, each room with a decent en suite and importantly a hot shower. Located right in the heart of everything. We stayed here both before and after our Inca Trail trek - they kept our luggage safe for us. Breakfast is no frills but plenty good enough (bread, scrambled egg, cereal). Lovely views of the city from upstairs, panoramic. There are some pretty poor hostels in Cusco, this place is very decent.

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.
