The hostel is the perfect place to be when being in Cusco. Why: The hostel is located very close to the main square. If you are interested in activities in and around Cusco (Machu Picchu) the hostel is well connected to a travel agency, which we can recommend as well. But most importantly the owner ("Coco") of the hostel offers all kinds of tips, help and good mood you need to have a very good time. Customer-focus is definitely given here!

one of the nicest places we have have stayed in, in Peru. Really silent and relaxing (which is rare in Peru) and nice big room.


The owner Coco was very helpful and friendly. He gives you advice on where to go and what to do in the city. The location is only 10 mins walk to the main square, very quiet at night. Hot shower, good wifi. Spotless room. Decent computer. Highly recommended!


Good location, close to supermarkets. Coco and staff are really helpful. Rooms are really nice and big. Hot showers and decent breakfast.


Quarto muito frio / Very cold room.

A great find in Cusco! This hostel is small, relaxed and friendly in a decent location 10 min walk from the Plaza del Armas with 2 supermarkets nearby. The showers are piping hot and incredibly powerful, the beds are really comfortable. The kitchen is super too! Most importantly the Chief of staff called Coco will do absolutely anything for you in a heartbeat (luggage storage, trek bookings, advice, friendly chat!). No problem with us using all the facilities when waiting for a night bus!!
