We highly recommend this hostel. We stayed on 3 separate occasions and were more than happy each time. All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful, particularly Luis, Alexis and Jenny. Hot water, good WIFI (not always in the room). Breakfast was good although juice ran out if you didn´t get to it before about 8.30am. Located within 5 min stroll from Plaza de Armas. The hostel also organised a couple of trips for us which were good. Got a little cold at night but can hire heaters.
Very friendly staff. Great location. Only negative was I found a bunch of dark hairs (I'm blonde) on my sheets so I'm not sure if they were actually washed or not. Breakfast was only bread but hey apparently that's all anyone eats in South America.
Only stayed one night after our trek, wish we had more time though. The staff is friendly and will let you leave your luggage there safely while you hike to Machu Picchu! There's an attic that only the staff has access too, so you don't have to worry about other travelers having access to your belongings left there. Rooms are spacious and clean. Really cool bar/hang out area. Bread, jam, teas and coffee for breakfast. Thanks for a great stay!!
Good hostel in Cusco. Room was cold so pack warm.
A cool place to stay with only minor issues that wouldn't stop us from from staying there again (eg temperamental showers). Friendly staff who stored our bags for free while we did the inca trail and let us hang around for the day for free.
Hot showers! Extremly friendly and helpfull staff! Nice owner!
The rooms were quite drafty and cold. The staff said repeatedly that they would turn on the heater but they never did.
Great hostel, with a fantastic staff (mainly the peruvian girl in the reception during the morning), a good common area, and in a nice location. The only complain is the toilets, there are only 2 for all the dorms, could have more. Nice hostel to meet other travelers. Would stay there again.
Great hostel, good location, friendly staff and nice beer!
GREAT LOCATION. Very close to the Main Square and restaurants. Staff was great and allowed us to store our luggage during our 4 Day Inca Trail Trek. Kitchen was well equipped for our needs and the common areas were great for socializing. I would definitely return to Dragonfly Hostels.
It's not worth booking a private room at this hostel - the room had no windows, and no privacy thanks to a glass door which had gaps in the top and bottom. Not worth the 80 soles. The dorm rooms actually looked a bit nicer. Otherwise a nice place, the morning receptionist was polite and welcoming.
The staff are amazing. There was an issue with our laundry but the staff were fantastic in helping us to sort it out. Excellent location, really close to main square. Basic breakfast but was great to have it included. We had a private double, bathroom very small (feet in shower while using toilet) and water gets everywhere but still happy and would recommend.
A really nice hostel in good location. Very pretty and chilled out. Quiet though, if you're looking for a big social place with bars etc go elsewhere - there is a bar but it was quiet. I found it perfect for relaxing in Cusco, with no drunk roommates falling around the dorms!
Review based on one night's stay. First impression, nice vibes. My only complain would be lack of bathrooms.
Great atmosphere, better staff. An excellent option if you go to Cusco!
This is a great place and location. Minutes from all the action. Wonderfully friendly, helpful staff and a great courtyard to meet people. I made many friends here. Nice Kitchen, bar and decent wifi. My only gripe is that they really should turn the outdoor heater on in the courtyard more often. More people would gather there. I stayed there before and after Machu Picchu. Very highly recommended.
Staff was friendly & helpful, but our room sucked. It was a Private double on the first floor and it was right next to the common area. It sounded like the common area was in our room. The room reeked of mold that came from the private bathroom. The room was also freezing cold & we needed rent heater for an extra 10 Soles per night... We had booked for 5 nights but were only able tough it out 2 before switching to "Che Lagarto" just a few meters up the same road & across street, it was better.
Toilets and showers not so good; bedrooms a little cold during winter; bedroom doors always open, the stairs aren't so good when you just arrive to Cusco and you're not used to the oxygen yet.
