right next to buses to machu picchu. close to everything. wifi was terrible. frosted glass in door let in hallway light at night. some basic repairs needed in room. noise from, i guess house behind hotel, sharing common air shaft. could hear conversations, music, phone calls. not recommended.


Great experience! Edison was SO helpful in getting us to the hostal, purchasing Machu Picchu and bus tickets, and making our experience carefree and amazing. Warm water, a little noisy, great location next to the bus to Machu and train station, breakfast starting at 4:00 a.m, and very affordable!

We arrived during black-out. Nobody showed up to pick us up at the train station (maybe they couldn't have seen our e-mail?) so it was hard to find the place with no electricity in the streets. Afterwards, we discovered it was actually close from the station. We were given a room and a lamp. Two persons tried to enter our room during the night, really stressful. A lovely granny made us basic breakfast at 4.30am. Good shower, no wifi (black-out) and the best bed we have had in Perou.


The location was perfect - two minute walk to catch the bus that takes you to Machu Pichu. Other than that, this place wasn't great. The staff was nice, but didn't speak any English. We reserved a room with a double bed, but instead got two singles. The walls are paper thin so you can hear people from other rooms and on the street. We were supposed to get breakfast, but never specified a time so that never happened.


Our room didn't have a toilet seat. The proprietor's son laughed about this and didn't offer to fix it. When it hadn't been fixed the second day, the son said this was because we had taken our key and he couldn't get in. Minutes later he opened our friend's room with a pass key, so this obviously wasn't true. We took our keys because there was usually no one at the desk and the street door was open. The television didn't work and people were up and down stairs at all hours of the night.

This hostel is in a good location. My room had an excellent view of the rapids coming down the mountain. It is surrounded by restaurants, a block from the bus and train station, and a 10 min walk to the Hot Springs. The front desk was very kind and the breakfast was bread and jam with your choice of eggs on the side. All served with tea and juice. I very relaxing stay after the 4 day Inca trail and they had hot showers with good water pressure. I highly recommend!

Varayoc is super!! The staff is really nice, and somebody waited for us with a sign at the train to take us back to the hostel. The breakfast is terrific, offered from 4am onward with eggs and fresh juice. Rooms are comfortable with cozy beds and a great shower. Close to everything in Aguas Calientes (but then, it's tiny). Provided all the information you need re: buses to Macchu Picchu. WiFi signal is strong. Only downside is that noise travels, so can be kind of noisy at night and in the AM.


This place was great, the location was great - very close to the train station - the trains don't run at night or that early to be a problem - better yet it's right by the bus stop for Machu Picchu which is choice for getting to Machu Picchu early. Additionally they offer breakfast at 4am! Which means you can eat before going to Machu Picchu. These owners were also nice enough to let my boyfriend and I print out plane tickets for the next day which was very, very nice of them. No bed bugs!


staff were very helpful. Use if the kitchen would have made the stay more convenient as food is expensive in the town. Wifi was great and worked in the room.
