Located in a back-alley and therefore good for light sleepers. The location is almost in the heart of the city and everything (sights, restaurants, shops etc.) are in walking distance. All rooms are clean and surprisingly warm (thick walls). Some lack a bit sunlight. The showers have good water-pressure and really hot water. Wifi is stable while a bit slow for uploads (download is fast in the common area). Breakfast is great (hot bread and eggs) and the staff super friendly and helpful. Great!


Estelle was fabulous she ordered us taxi and day trips and went far above to accommodate us great location near the square I have already sent two sets of people there this week


Comfy beds, clean rooms and nice staff. The sound insulation wasn't the best, but we ended up staying longer than expected and they were very helpful. Very good location close to the main square but in a quite little back alley.


lovely little place to stay. Will go back


Well located hostel, with comfy beds and warm duvets and heating (important in Cusco!). The staff were friendly but somewhat inattentive, we needed to ask for toilet paper whenever we ran out and cleaning was a bit random too though it was done. Our room was next to the breakfast area, which was an issue: people would sit out there chatting late at night and breakfast begins at 5.30am and there was next to no insulation so it felt like they were basically chatting in our bedroom.


Estella was wonderful! She was very helpful and accommodating. I would highly recommend.

The lady who runs the hostel is very nice and helpful. Breakfast was great. We got a double which was nice, clean and had its own bathroom. Hot water was great. Only downfall was that wifi did not work in the room. Location is in an alleyway a few blocks from plaza, pretty accessible


Wonderful hostel! Estela is INCREDIBLE! She made our experience so much fun! My friends and I had asked her about cooking classes in the area, and after looking into the many different options, she told us a coworker at the hostel, Hener, was studying to be a chef and offered a personal cooking class for us at the hostel for a much lower price! She and Hener went out of their way to make our stay exceptional.

El Labrador was by far the best accommodations my friends and I had in the Cuzco area. Tucked away on a quiet dead-end not far from the Plaza de Armas, this hostel had a lovely atmosphere as well as wonderful staff. Estela was especially helpful in organizing for us an intimate Peruvian cooking class at the hostel with a local culinary student. We had a blast! We also loved the view over the rooftops with our breakfast. Stay at El Labrador if you're looking for a truly unique experience!


Very great hostel. The staff are super friendly and helpful. The owner did all the she could to accomodate us for more nights. We stayed for 3nights. Some rooms are amazing and very cozy but others (basement) look older. All in all, i definitely recommend this hostel!


El Labrador was a great place to stay in cusco, great location, very helpful staff and good breakfast. We didn't get the chance the meet many other travellers whilst we were there but this was because a large school group were also staying at the same time and not the fault of the hostel. The kitchen was basic but many restaurants to choose from nearby. The room was quite cold but plenty of blankets on the bed meant it was ok when you went to sleep.


True Peru! This place is absolutely awesome. I would definitely recommend staying here. It is in a fantastic location- you can walk everywhere from here. The rooms are clean and have a great South American vibe. There is an awesome loft area with a great view of Cuzco.
