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!

Fairly comfortable room, but if you want to cook for yourself note that the kitchen is very small, so if several people want to cook you may have to wait a while.

Bathrooms are directly connected to the outdoors and can get very cold, especially for showers. Water takes a long time to heat up, but is hot. Wifi is essentially non-existent, but they have an 2 older computers in the common room.

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.

great little hostel, not too far from the Plaza and the staff are so friendly!

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.
