It was totally ok staying at eco packers. Still it is actually quite expensive compared to other hostels all around in cusco.it was clean and staff was not very friendly,but always ready to help.
Nice hostel, good location, comfy beds, good hot showers but wifi is pretty much non existent.
Really great hostel but the staff let it down. The facilities are very good apart from no communal kitchen. My phone got stolen from my bag but they refuse to even help by talking about it. The day after my phone got stolen we saw a local man, maybe a staff member, in our room at 5am looking around the room and trying to get in lockers. Very weird. But apart from this it's a pleasant hostel.
It was very very clean and the showers were hot. There was not much in the way of security, however I did feel really safe here. Breakfast was great - a variety of different foods every morning for the continental breakfast. The staff were really friendly. Not much of a night scene - the bar was full of locals who we're a bit creepy to be honest. The WiFi was pretty good most of the time. The food from the kitchen was just okay.
Horrible, intermittent, slow wifi but beautiful hostel! Luke warm showers at best but tons of great hangout areas for meeting new people
The kitchen could be bigger, but at least they had one. The staff in the reception were not always the most helpful, but the staff in the tour agency were really helpful and good at problem solving. Comfortable beds and the 18 bed dorm didn't feel too big. Good showers and enough toilets.
Very nice and clean hostel with a great vibe. Great place to meet people and chill. Lots of common spaces to hang out. Lockers in the room are conveniently located right beside the beds and they have plugs inside of them if you want to leave your electronics plugged in and then lock them up. In a great location right by the Plaza de Armas but a good enough distance that it is quieter!
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.
