Location is good. The owner however was extremely rude, he lied to our faces
We stayed a total of 3 nights and found the rooms very clean, and good value for money in Cusco. I would recommend them to a friend. Only downside was cold showers- hot water doesn´t last very long! But overall a good place to stay with helpful and friendly staff

More like a 2* hotel than a hostel. Perfect to get some sleep after a long hike, has all the basics, but no common areas and no chance to meet others.
Nice and comfortable stay at this hostel with an excellent location to the main square. Comfy beds

The second time around here was not too bad, however there were lots of small spiders and centipedes in the room. The bathroom stayed wet the whole time due to the absence of a shower curtain. Rooms 301 and 302 are not desirable, ask for a one on the second floor. The staff also insisted on using a "not so great" exchange rate for our payment.
This is a decent hostel for the money. However, the ceilings are not very high on the third floor and my husband has acquired several bumps from hitting his head. Our bathroom had a leaky sink, so the floor was always wet and as a result, our underwear got wet when we used the toilet. The location is good, very close to Plaza de Armas. There is only internet available downstairs in the tiny common room. Also, the hostel is quite cold. I hate to leave bad reviews, but it could be better here
My bathroom smelled bad. It was stomach turning. The bed was ok, but the street outside was full of screaming youngsters until well after midnight with no sound proofing. There was a young lad there called Alex who was very nice, big ups to him and his positive attitude.

There is one small, unpleasant bathroom for the entire building, with no water pressure and minimal, unpredictable hot water. The rooms are laughably small, although the beds and linens are nice. The staff is unhelpful at best, tending towards being flat out rude. The 10:30am checkout time is ridiculous, and is made even worse by the fact that the staff start pestering you to leave by 9:30am before you can even get through the free ‘breakfast’ of stale bread and warm water.
