An ok hostel. My dorm & single room had no windows, v stuffy and dark. The lady at the tour information desk was very unenthusiastic, seemed to dislike her job immensely. The place seemed to have a bit of an impersonal backpacker vibe compared to other places I stayed. The kitchen was good, quite noisy at night with people coming in and showers hot in the morning but Luke warm in the afternoon.


Quiet after 11pm, clean bathrooms, delicious breakfasts, very helpful staff... only downside was people can smoke in the courtyard


Nice hostel around a central covered yard. Breakfast is ok and they sell craft beer. Overall a pleasant place but people was very noisy one night there.


Stayed at both Dragonfly Lima and Cusco, we preferred the Cusco one. Good atmosphere and good value for money. Breakfast pretty average but accomodation is better value than others within similar price ranges in the area.

Thank you so much for your comment. We are always making our place much comfortable and always keep our friendly atmosphere that sets us apart from the other hostels. For our breakfast we already have fresh juice, fruit salad, toasts and bread with jam and butter, and organic coffee. And we are setting a breakfast menu with more options. Thank you again and Travel safe!


We had a good time at dragonfly hostel. We stayed in a 6 bed female dorm which had a toilet and shower in the room. The room was quite big and had lockers for your values. Breakfast consisted of a small bowl of fruitsalad, bread, toast, butter, jam and juice! You could drink coffee, mate de coca and hot water all day for free, which was really cool as it was really cold at night. The staff was very friendly and extremely helpful! I would definately come back and stay at dragonfly hostel.

Great place to be! Just cold showerl


A good, but not great hostel. Great location in Cusco, staff is friendly and helpful, and I appreciated the free breakfast. They also stored our luggage for free for 5 days while we did the salkantay trek. However, noise traveled very easily and the place felt dirty. People are allowed to smoke in the common area (since it's technically outside), but it makes the whole hostel smell like smoke.


Hostel staff was nice, had their own beer which was good. Not the biggest fan of Cusco, though.


We were impressed with Dragonfly up until the point we came back mid-afternoon to find the doors to our private room wide open. The explanation from management was that she had been supervising electritions doing some work in the room. This would have been OK by us if we{d been told that it was going to happen and if the room had been secured after they{d been there - neither of which happened. Thankfully nothing was missing. After many excuses an apology was finally offered.

A well run hostel, only 5 mins walk from the main plaza. Breakfast was decent, particularly liked the fruit and yoghurt. Beds were comfy and the rooms had lots of plug sockets. Nice common areas and bar, although they did get cold at night as they were outside and the bar was usually a bit quiet. The shared showers could also be cold to get to in the morning. Seemed to be a lot more groups than solo travellers when I stayed.


I *loved* staying at the DragonFly. The staff was amazing (helpful, friendly, accommodating), it's close to downtown (but in a quiet location, so no massive noise issues), and the hostel is just plain adorable. I can't find adequate words to describe how much I felt at home and comfortable during my stay in Cusco, all thanks to Dragonfly.


My men's shower on the first floor was great each time I used it and had hot water, but my friend said the ladies shower on the top floor never had hot water.
