Really enjoyed eco-packers! No complaints. Great location, very helpful staff- they answered all my questions and called a secure taxi for me the morning I headed out. I will certainly recommend them to anyone staying in Cusco!

Was a really nice place, a shame the hot water wasn´t working while i was there, otherwise very good.

Staff were helpful, friendly and were able to understand my very bad Spanish (they also spoke some English which was better than my Spanish!). Dorm room was clean & tidy, bed was comfy, free breakfast was good too! Great location, near enough for convenience and generally quiet - there is a bar onsite so if you are going to bed / getting up early to trek you might want to take earplugs (ironically it was much quieter all other nights I was there!) Bathrooms with warm showers.

Nice place, great location and good facilities. Recommended place to stay in Cuzco. The only downside was that smoking is permitted in the nice courtyard.

Excellent staff at reception, very helpful with any questions or helping me sort anything out. Maria was lovely. Nice breakfast but it isn't included in price as is listed on here, still good value though. Great tours desk, good showers and amazingly comfy beds. Wifi can be a little temperamental.

Overall good stay, bed wasn't ready until 3 hours after check in time, after 24 hrs of travelling it would have been nice to be able to sleep right away, would recommend otherwise.

It was ok. Excellent location and comfortable beds. Breakfast gets crowded and not enough tables for everyone to seat which can get annoying! The shower is nice but there is nothing to hang your clothes so expect them to get wet! The bar was nice and cheap food is served all day.

Well, the hostel was ok for one night, it could be better if they understand that most people there are going to get up really early and turn down/off the music at night. And the stairs to the bar are really noisy as well (it is only annoying because is at the dorms floor).

Only thing is the rooms can get very cold at night maybe some sort of heating device would be good.

I liked the hostel very much and found it very sociable, the main problem i experienced was the WIFI or lack of it as it was very patchy. The location of the hostel was brilliant and the lay our also very good.

Designed in a similar style to many hostels near the main square - Ecopackers is a pleasant and relatively quiet place to stay with 2 courtyards. It is not a party hostel, and less party-like than Pariwana, so it's more likely you'll have a good night of sleep. Breakfast was good but could be better organised (I often found myself asking for things which had run out like bread etc) and reception could be faster and more enthusiastic. On the whole I enjoyed my time here and would stay here again.

Certain staff members weren´t as friendly or helpful as others and the wifi is a bit unreliable. However in general this is a great place to stay for location and friendly atmosphere.

This hostel is nice and clean and the facilities are good BUT it is freezing cold as all the dorms lead to an outside courtyard as do all the bathrooms

best place I stayed in Latin America and perfect to prepare for the Inka Trail as well as relax from it. Great beds, clean and really hot showers and really flexible and helpful staff at the front desk (Karen, Pamela & Cesar). Good food & bar. The first hostel which realy lives up to "home away from home"!

Very nice place but staff a bit disorganised in the bookings. Several of us had to leave because they messed up in the booking. Some of the staff are very friendly but some are really bad. The site is probably victim of its success ...
