Very nice hostel at a convenient location. Very helpful staff although not all of them speak English. They helped me arrange the lake Titicaca which was very nice. They also helped me arrange airport transportation to Juliaca. The solar powered shower isn't always hot but if you follow their timetable it's alright. I'd rather help save the environment too.
The WiFi was awesome! Only negative is that the shower was cold!!!

The staff were very friendly and the hostel has a brilliant check in time of 6am which is great when you are arriving off the night bus from Cusco. Beds are comfortable and the showers have hot water if you stick to the guidelines of temperature availability. Nice breakfast.
El Manzano was a good small hotel. Rooms are fresh repainted. Bathroom was simple but spacious and shower was hot. Breakfast is simple as well as the breakfast room. We were able to get the breakfast a little bit early as we had to leave before 6h30. Negativ point, they didn't make the room during the day and didn't change the towel, which never dry in this location.
Location was about halfway to the Port for boat trips & main square, about a 10 minute walk at night & I guess you should be aware at night although I felt safe. The hostel is nice. There is a sunny courtyard. Rooms are clean & spacious. Good value. The staff was nice & helpful, even with the language barrier - they only speak spanish. Great Price & room for a private. Shower was hot but its solar power so need to be aware of times - they post this. Good, fast Wifi. I was happy with my choice
Helpful management; generally thr place is very good value for money.
