What a wonderful place to stay... all the staff were always helpful with bookings, directions and sights around the city to see. The hostel its self is located just enough away from the city center to avoid all the traffic noise, polution and the hussel and bussel of everyday life. The beds were very comfortable... the hostel was pretty quiet at night so one was able to get a good rest. Breakfast was good tea or coffee, two fresh buns, freshly blended juice and butter/jam. Gail loves you all.

Nice little hostel with friendly helpful staff, good wifi and luggage storage for machu picchu. However, the toilets were always dirty, the kitchen was literally 3 square metres, breakfast was only 2 bread rolls per person, and there was no atmosphere really.

Great hostel especially for couples! Cheap and not for from the so called center of the little cusco. Amazing wifi! Showers are a bit weird, not always working well.

We liked staying there a lot. The staff was really helpful. Especially the rooms in the back are really nice and quiet. It is a nice 10minutes walk to Plaza de Armas which is the mainsquare.

Hot water was not available in all showers, so choose wisely. Good breakfast. They let us store our bags with them while we went to visit Machu Picchu.

I highly recommend this hostel in Cusco, great bang for your buck! Rooms clean and nice with communal bathroom/hot water shower. Decent breakfasts and very safe. Gets chilly at night but they provide many cozy blankets to keep us warm. The area is in a good location about 5-10 min walk from the main square. We felt safe at all times walking around, and they provide you with a great map with recommendations that all seemed to be great! Staff are all friendly, spoke English and on site 24hrs a day

A fantastic hostel in a great location, arriving early after an overnight bus we were able to check in right away. All staff were super friendly and spoke English. Rooms are great and no bunks!! Staff can help arrange transport and tours and free luggage storage was a life saver when we went to Machu Picchu for a few days, would defiantly stay here again.

Really friendly helpful family ran hostel. Reasonably priced private rooms which are clean and spacious. Breakfast is usual bread and jam. Bathrooms are clean and only 5-10mins walk to main plaza. Only negative is kitchen is small and could do with some more appliances! But would stay here again!

This was my second stay as I had felt very comfortable there the last time and the value for money is great. The staff remembered me, wanted to hear about my travels and were very helpful once again - what a friendly place! If I come back to Cusco, I will definitely chose this one again!

The staff are all super helpful and friendly, as a non Spanish speaker they were very helpful with sorting out issues I had with our bus tickets etc. The hostel has a very homely and relaxed feel. The beds are very comfortable and overall the hostel is extremely clean. It is great value for money. Highly recommend staying here!

Nice place with very friendly staff! There were only single beds in the dorm, which was nice and enough blankets for the cold nights. As the hostel is in an old colonial building some of the doors are really low, so watch your head. Other than that, not much to complain here :)

The hostel is very nice, however quite a walk uphill from the Plaza de Armas. The facilities are kept very clean. There was absolutely no hot water all three times I needed to take a shower. We stayed in the very first room inside the hostel and were woken up all three nights because a guest was having to constantly ring the doorbell and bang on the locked door due to there being no staff person at the front desk. I had to find the staff person and wake them up to open the door.

This was a super place to stay because it wasn't in the centre where its noisy and crowded. I loved a quiet nights sleep in the cosy rooms, which had plenty of blankets to keep you warm and lovely cupboards and dressing tables to unpack if you wanted. The staff were super friendly and always helpful. Free storage and lockers was a bonus especially when doing Machu Picchu. The TV room was sociable and a great welcome after hiking the Inca trail for a few days. Breakfast was typical bread and jam.

Atawkama was great value -the rooms are cosy and clean, the breakfast is ok, there is good wifi and the hostel is very close to San Pedro market and a supermarket; there are also some very cheap and cheerful eateries around, and the Plaza des Armas is 10 minutes walk away. in the hostel there is also a really cosy communal lounge with a books exchange and films, and a lovely garden where hummingbirds pop in all the time. whatever you need, you just need to ask the friendly staff- they are fab!
