Great hostel in a building with lots of character. In a great location - able to easily walk everywhere. Good security and lockers available. Showers were great in the morning but cold and occasionally a little dirty by the evening. Only downside was the kitchen (to cook yourself) was filthy and not very well equipped.
Great location! Friendly staff and very clean bedrooms and facilities. Hot water! :)
Definitely lives up to its reputation. Having endured some pretty nasty hostels while traveling around South America, Ecopackers was a great treat. The rooms were cozy and beds were super comfy and warm. The bathroom facilities were great with hot showers (although only at certain times of the day). The breakfast was delicious and cheap. The only issue we had was with the staff - be weary of anything related to transportation (taxi/bus)
Good hostel, well run. Comfortable beds, secure lockers, helpful staff, loved the open fire place...would definitely stay here again.
Fantastic Hostel, Great Location very close to everything but far enough away to be quiet and peaceful!
It was a good place to stay in Cusco before the Inca Trail
the bracelet everyone has to wear during the stay is terrible. please find a different solution, we are grownups not dogs. What was great is the safe ATM in the hostel courtyard.
It seemed to be a pretty happenin' hostel; I only stayed one night, but it seemed like a cool place to hang out for a few days. They had an awesome bar area, and at the time offered a free Pisco Sour welcoming drink, which was awesome! There were plenty of bathrooms, and main common area/courtyard had a cool feel to it, a good place to relax. That being said, it could get a little on the noisy side with everyone having fun, so if thats not your thing... I would recommend.
The best hostel that I stayed in in Peru, hands down. Clean to a fault, helpful people, beautiful building, great location next to the center of the city.
My stay in the Ecopackers Hostel in Cusco was absolutely great. I liked the cozy atmosphere, the really big beds with extra large blankets and at last the great staff. Pamela and Denis, the guys at the reception are doing a great job und have always a smile in their face. If you need help, just ask them, they will help you! ;-) I would definitly come back! A great hostel in a great city! Thanks so much!
Great location to stay in Cusco. Good breakfast and very nice place to taste a soup (good price) and to enjoy live music at the weekends. By the way, always has a warm coca tea. The staff are very kind and helpful. Special thanks to Denis, Maria, Cesar, Gregorio and Luiz.

I emailed Ecopackers before I left to make sure they had my reservation. They said that they did not. I emailed them the receipt from booking with hostelworld. They said they did have my reservation. When we arrived they had no idea we were coming nor could they find the reservation. Luckily they still had room for us. We were not the only people with reservation problems.

One of the best hostels, I've ever stayed at.
Great Hostel! The next time I visit Cusco, I will stay here again!
Close to main part of town, clean and showers were usually hot. Runs an excellent walking tour each day other than Sundays with Luis who is an amazing tour guide. Beds were clean and comfortable. Good range of ages, not just full of young backpackers looking to get drunk every night
The place is fine but nothing special. If you're lucky, you'll meet people but it's almost too large. Staff are fine but not very friendly. I arrived in the middle of the night, after a Macchu Picchu tour and they wouldn't let me have access to the storage ro to get my bag! Laundry is over-priced too (as, I suspect, are the tours but I didn't book with them). It also took over an hour one evening, with numerous requests, to get the hot-water re-filled- not fin when you have an early start!
Great location. It's a big hostel but still manages to keep a cosy feel and people are not up all night making noise. Great beds and clean bathrooms, with male v female privacy. Breakfast room is dark and breakfast average. Their travel company went all out to help me book several bus journeys.
The building was wonderful and quirky. Originally 16th C, two storeys around two courtyards. The first, larger courtyard is good for lounging & getting wifi reception. The second courtyard has a (rather small) kitchen. . Nice cinema-style room for watching TV and movies. Dormitories spacious & clean, but not enough sockets or wifi reception. Some petty theft & noise from guests in dorms The reception and travel agency staff were neither particularly friendly, nor particularly unfriendly.
