Pretty impersonal but you get a bed to sleep. The water in the shower was boiling hot after the 5 minutes of freezing cold. Internet doesen't reach all rooms only as a very weak signal. Note that breakfast is only included for some reservations, not all. All in all, being a long time traveler, this wasn't the best place I've staid in.


El baño tenia todo el techo enmohecido y la pintura estaba descascarada. Olia mal pues no tenia buena ventilacion. Ademas el agua caliente no alcanzo para una segunda ducha. Las paredes de la habitacion estaban muy sucias, les vendria bien una mano de pintura.

Its a family own place with really friendly and helpful staff. They are from cusco so they can help you out with informations about almoust erverything. It´s location is very close to the plaza del armas, what makes it a nice place to sleep, as you are in the centre of cusco within 5 minutes. Another thing I really liked is that the hostel is developing. Where things are broken they are replaced very soon.


In a 0 degree temperature the "hot shower" only worked in the morning and for 2 minutes so we couldn't bath at night after an exaustive day. The room is cold, the floor is freezing. You have to walk a long way through the hill to get to an alley where the hostel is located. They do NOT clean the room. the curtains let all the light come in.

We enjoyed our long stay in Bright Hostel. That's why it is so sad that we didn't receive a refund for one night (we returned from a 5day trek in the mountains and the water wasn't working...no shower, no toilet, nothing...in the morning we had to "run" to another building to get a cold shower there) and the stuff lied to us why they couldn't give us our money back. We left disappointed.
