We booked a private double and ended up with a double and an extra single bed! Extra bed was great for organizing our suitcases on for our trek. Warm showers, clean rooms. Breakfast was just cereal, bread and jam... If you got there early enough. Cool view from the breakfast area though! 4 minute walk from the Plaza de Armas. Nice staff. Beds have lots of blankets on them to stay warm at night (it gets cold you'll need them). Thank you for the good nights sleep before our 4 night hike!!


Really liked location, seemed very safe. Not a party hostel which suited us. Was able to check in at 5am. Very slow to respond to my emails. No towels. Basic breakfast. There was an electric heater in the room.


The wifi never worked in my 3 days there!!!! Rooms were average and hot water ran out.


It's a good hostel: cozy beds, helpful staff and nice common areas. Shower isn't exactly hot, but neither cold. Besides that, breakfast is good and everything seems clean. I would recommend it for sleeping a couple of nights and chill out, because it doesn't feel like a party place.


Room with private bathroom was great, hot shower and great view over the city. They gave us a heater, which was nice! Breakfast is basic but ok. Good internet and wi-fi in the common room (none in our room but the staff mentioned that upon arrival) Great location to explore Cuzco! Very friendly and helpfull staf (thanks for the taxi, great guy!) Some points for approvement: the kitchen is a mess and doesn't invite you to cook. (Barking) dogs everywhere...but besides that, we even extended ;-)
