This is an amazing hostel. Good location. Great beds, showers and communal areas. I meet lots of other travelers and it fosters a very friendly open environment.
Great place to meet people awesome atmosphere
Well located, with very good facilities (bar, restaurant, common room, outdoor areas, pool table) except the wifi which was terrible, often not working or very very slow. For the price this wifi is not acceptable. Excellent comfortable beds and decent size rooms. If you stay in dorm O check the ceiling has been repaired as it leaked onto my bed. Staff were not great at helping (except for Steffanie who was excellent). Overall a good place to stay and if the wifi is fixed then would be excellent.
One of the best hostels we stayed in on a 4 month trip of South America. Great dorms - spacious, really comfy beds, big lockers with charging point inside. Great location, lots of common areas, bar/restaurant that does good cheap food, breakfast included, really sociable place, hot showers!! Would definitely stay here again.
A great hostel with a great atmosphere. The staff is great and the facilities were clean. There's definitely a younger traveling crowd here so good times are guaranteed!
Stayed 4 nights in 18 bed dorm. Decent enough place. Hot showers except for one day. lots of places to hang out, so many that it can work against you for meeting people. big lockers w/ electric plug in a plus. kitchen makes good food for reasonable price.
- There was one staff member who was rude every time I had to get anything from him, like laundry and water. The bar staff was nice though. Wifi cut out a lot and would be out for hours and only worked in common areas. long walk from the upstairs dorm to the ladies bathroom, especially on those cold Cusco nights. + The beds were comfortable and their outdoor spaces were nice. Great location: you can buy your Machu Picchu tickets and train tickets just down the street. Close to plaza de Armas
Myself and a female friend stayed here for 3 nights before heading on the inka trail and one night when we returned because we loved it so much. Lovely communal areas, clean dorms and bathroom facilities. But the highlight for us was the staff- Wendy in particular became our friend during our stay and made the atmosphere of the hostel come alive. Thank you Eco packers!
Loved the hostel although lack of kitchen was annoying when the bar needs mor vegetarian options. Lovely fire and free tea in the living room, however this is ruined by the constant blaring music from the empty bar. Although the barmaid Wendy made our stay here. She was brilliant. Beds were really comfortable although the 18 bed dorm was pretty cold. Lovely clean bathrooms and terrace. Couldn't beat the location and a free pisco sour on arrival!
A big but well thought out hostel with a great atmosphere. It was peaceful but also had a nice bar/restaurant to hang out when you felt like it. Even though the 18 bed dorm sounded big, it was divided into two floors, so it didn't feel that huge. Nice touch to have power plugs in the lockers. Staff was ok, but not too friendly.
We really enjoyed our night in this hostel. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and the bathrooms were the best we've ever seen in a hostel. Unfortunately our room was right by the bar which made it difficult to sleep. I also was not a fan of the lights being on a timer (I assume this is true since we found no switch in the room and they seemed to turn off themselves around 11pm?).
This was probably the best hostel I stayed at my entire trip. Clean, spacious, and well organized. The bar was tucked away in the back too so for many of the rooms, noise pollution is minimal. The beds were comfy and clean, sheets are changed everyday. Just make sure to make reservations early! They fill up quickly.
I enjoyed my time at Ecopackers and because of the shared tables in the dining room and the bar, it is easy to get talking to people. The central courtyard is a good place to chill out/warm up and there is an ATM which is very convenient. It is in a quiet road very near the central squares. They allow people to check in early, which is generally a good thing, but can mean you get woken up in a dorm. The downstairs toilets and showers are mixed. Upstairs is female only with hairdryers.
Very nice hostel, the crew is very nice and helpful. My only complaint, their wi-fi was not the best, would sometimes crash. Better check on the provider
I would stay here again in a heart beat. Slept in the 8 bed dorm without any issues. Great atmosphere and loved the layout. Front desk staff were lovely and helpful and the entire place was clean and well maintained. Comfy beds with lots of blankets and a wooden locker with an outlet inside for charging overnight. Planned activities and live music made socializing a breeze. (Side note: Regular padlocks are too big and will not fit these lockers so use your suitcase lock.)

The staff don't do much to create a positive atmosphere and environment. The breakfast is good. They could buy a new ping pong table as it is crooked and the paddles barely function. The table seems as if it's been through 10 years + of playing. Overall it's an alright hostel, I wouldn't go back as it didn't offer anything to be pleased about.
This is one of the best hostels I've stayed in South America. Great atmosphere, very clean, and very friendly staff! Julio and yaniurel at the reception were so helpfull!
I stood here and another hostel in Cuzco. If you want a comfortable laid back stay this is the place. If you want the party scene go to Loki or Wild Rover. For me this was just what I needed. Comfortable bed, beautiful and convenient location and good amenities. The customer service was good too, the front desk staff even let me make some phone calls to Loki when i needed to contact the tour operator. I would definitely stay here again.
very organized hostel. great location, two mins walk to supermarket. super friendly and helpful staff, always remember my name. every guest got their own locker with power plug inside which is pretty awesome. seriously cleaner than my bedroom. plenty of toilets and shower rooms. the bar is great, lovely live band, also given a free welcome drink. breakfast is fantastic. the best hostel ever!
Near main square and bars, restaurants. They sold my bed before I checked in even though I arrived at the check in time I specified and had told them before I went to machu pichu I would be back late
