The hostel was really nice and comfortable. The staff is friendly and helpful. But please think it twice before booking a tour to Machu Pichu from here. We paid 160$ and after we found out that you can do it on your own for 80-100$ The tour was quite crappy, and the meals included in the tour dont even include a drink.. So look around and do it on your own!! That´s the way the tourism works in Cusco. Apart from that the hostel was really nice!!

Very cold at night, bedroom doors don't lock, bathrooms outside. Good kitchen and outdoor area, staff weren't overly helpful.

Our major problem was that it wasn't very clean at all and the bathrooms were a free for all and not divided into ladies and gents. The hot water only worked in one of the showers and the rest were ice cold. The hostel lacked security, we left our backpacks when we went to Machu Picchu as they offered and when we can back to collect the room wasn't even locked and in the main communal area. Wouldn't recommend, many more better places to stay

Lovely chilled out hostel, comfy beds (not bunk beds!), tea and coffee available all day, wifi reaches the dorm rooms, easy to walk to main square. Overall a great hostel

The hostel is around 5 blocks away from the main plaza. Acceptable as it is quitter at night (but that 5 blocks is like walking up the hill) Staff is friendly and willing to answer your questions about the city and the tours. They may get confused on the balance payment, it is better for you to show the staff the balance stated on your confirmation page for the accurate charge. Hot water supply there is fine, at least the 2 times i took shower were warm enough.

A really nice hostel with friendly staff! The hostel looks beautiful! And is a few minutes walk to the center. We stayed in the double room and loved it :) The only thing to keep in mind is that the toilets and shower are located outside, so in the night you have to go outside, but we didn't mind.

The hostel is a short 5-10 minute walk away from the center, in a safe and quiet neighborhood. The hostel is spacious and has a computer/TV room, and outside seating. We stayed in one of the private rooms upstairs, which had wooden floors and got pretty cold at night and the doors didn't fully close at night. Breakfast was average for Peru. The staff is wonderfully nice and helpful; we had a small medical emergency during our stay, and everybody was extremely accommodating and understanding.

Such a cool place. Relaxing, sunny, cute patio area, tv, internet..everything we needed. Just a street up from San Pedro Market, and close to the Plaza de Armas. This is the place we're staying at from now on when in Cusco.

It's got a nice charm, not in the greatest neighborhood but still close to everything and definitely safe before dark (we walked back fairly late 10-11ish but might not have wanted to alone). Good breakfast and friendly staff. The rooms got pretty cold but there were plenty of blankets.

Good location aruonda 10 minute walk from the square, with a nice internal court yard. A chilled hostel to relax in without much noise.

Quite a walk from the city center, specially considering Cusco is a small city and everything is walking distance. Restrooms were always dirty, and there was never any hot showers, which was an issue considering the cold weather.

I let the hostel know that I would be arriving at 05:30 AM and thought this would not be a problem as there is supposedly 24hr reception. After the taxi dropped me off at 05:30 AM coming from the bus station I rang the doorbell and banged on the door for ten minutes and nobody opened the door! I then took a taxi to the mariott and had coffee there until 7 AM when I returned to Atawkama and someone opened the door. Apart from that great wifi ans friendly staff
