It's one of the best we stayed. We were there for 12 nights. We liked the room, the staff and the ppl we met in the hostel. It's not a party place but it has good atmosphere for travelers who look for quiet and relax. Kitchen is free to use. Internet is super fast, we even manager to download movies. Breakfast was good. The girls who helped in the kitchen were nice and polite. We would definitely stay there again next time.
If you're looking for a nice quiet hostel to base yourself in Cusco, this is the place. Nice breakfast, good showers, comfortable rooms, friendly and helpful staff, home away from home. Pack your ear plugs, the walls are a little thin.
We really enjoyed our stay at El Labrador - the location and rooms were great, and we especially liked the upstairs terrace. The lady who runs it is so lovely, she really looked after us, letting us leave our bags safely for 5 days while we did a trek, and let us check out late on our last day without having to pay any extra. It's not a party hostel but is fantastic as a quiet, friendly base only a few minutes from all the action. We recommend it!
Good location with a good price for Cusco standards. For the rest pretty basic.
The positives: the lady who runs the hostel is very nice and friendly, free wifi and it works, great location, hot water, clean towel and free breakfast. The negatives... The lady tried to charge for the extra person in a triple room, even though it's not our choice to share one room among 5 people. One hostel employee had a young baby with her, and the baby started crying at 6 am. No sound proof anywhere in the hostel - footsteps, shower, conversations - all can be heard.
