It is really great hostel, i ve fun at nights, no need to go out, everything was so perfect, awesome staff, very helpful, an old house, so good atmosphere, u could eat in the restaurant of hostel, so perfect
very good location, very clean. good alternative if you dont want a party hostel.
One of the best hostals I've stayed in Peru. Denis, Joseph and Gregorio do a great job at the Front desk. Playing football in Cusco with them was fun. The hostal has a perfect location to explore the city. I arrived early (5am) in the morning but they let me go to my room. That was very nice! Definitely recommend it!
A good enough hostel to be staying there again now! Could do with some kind off heating at night though!
I would definitely racommend it... good beds, good and clean bathrooms, nice courtyard... they save you bagagges costless if you need it.
Ecopackers is a great place to stay in Cusco. The location is fab, just a very short walk from the main square. Stayed in a large dorm, good free and large lockers for every guest. Everything was clean with very comfortable beds. It's very popular so I'd recommend booking ahead if poss. Atmosphere is great with lovely people and a good (and cheap!) bar, but if you want to sleep then noise shouldn't be an issue.
This hostel advertises itself as a party hostel and it definitely is, as loud music plays from 10a to 11p. It has a cute courtyard, free simple breakfast, cheap drinks, nice staff, great location and we really appreciated the laundry service.They tried to claim that I had only reserved one night until I showed them proof otherwise, which made me suspicious that they had overbooked during the sun festival weekend. Some people might not like the very open approach to the communal bathroom.

Excelent hostel! Very friendly and helpfull staff. Very nice atmospheare. Sometimes there's barbeacue nights and live music. Great facilities. Comfortable beds. Clean bathrooms. Close to the Plaza de Armas, on a quiet street. Really the only bad thingh about the hostel is the wi-fi, which doesn't work properly half the time, but I guess that's common in Peru. Totally recommend it.
Great hostel, feels like home away from home. Nice facilities, bar, fireplace. Breakfast could be better, there weren`t dishes and cups frequently and sometimes, they were out of bread.
Very good hostel . Very well located with helpful staff. Beds very comfortable. Should have individual Electric power sockets for charging gadgets. Weak breakfast , but is the average of hostels in the area.
I had a wonderful stay at Ecopackers. It is well organized. Thanks a lot to Balvina and Joseph from the reception. Their service made my stay more comfortable. I arrived in Cusco early at 5am and it was no problem to relax in the tv-room next to the breakfast room. Breakfast is tasty and the kitchen offers delicious food. Luggage Storage was no problem, while I travelled to Aguas Calientes. This hostel was my best accomodation during my trip in Peru!
Not allowed to check in until 1.30 as beds were not cleaned in time - staff not very apologetic. They did not have enough change for me to pay when I wanted. However good base for exploring the city and nice areas to lounge around in.
Great showers, breakfast sometimes not enough, nice atmosphere, great staff, good bar & lovely fireplace!
Just stayed there for a night, nice big hostel, very well located!
Great location but average hostel. Was not over impressed by the staff or the cleanliness of the hostel. Does offer a good breakfast though.
Room was very very loud until about 1 AM... noise from bar carried like there was no wall there, internet almost never worked, and general atmosphere seemed fairly unwelcoming to newcomers. Bed was very comfortable and staff was friendly, but the place certainly did not seem too focused on creating a place that was comfortable during the first day or two of arrival, especially with the lack of working wifi and unstopping noise.
Fantastic hostel. Truely one of the best, if not the best hostel I have stayed in (even compared to some very nice hostels in Berlin)! Awesome facilities in an old, colonial building with a central courtyard; fantastic breakfast food; coca leaves always available; super awesome, flexible with reservations, and very friendly staff; great atmosphere; and, very friendly hostel dwellers. I do not doubt that we stayed in the nicest hostel in the city of Cusco.
