Great place with everything you could need. The staff are friendly and willing to offer advice on anything. Also the beds are very comfy


Generally nice area, but smoky and loud. Rooms are small. Though they are very clean.


Excellent location, just a couple of blocks from Plaza de Armas. Very helpful, knowledgable and responsive staff, both via email and in person. Like many places they offer free breakfast but this place stands apart by also offering free caipirinha drinks! Very hot showers. Safe, clean and nice. Would def recommend this place!


Arriving here after a long ride in from ollantaytamba we were greeted by the lovely owner of the hostels, who filled us in on all of the best places to eat and drink, supplied us with all the maps and informative leaflets we could need. The rooms are clean and the beds have thick cosy duvets which are needed in the cold cuzco nights during winter. The shower here is the best I've ever had in a hostel and was very welcome after weeks of lesser showers. + had free drinks after 10 on the weekend.

Great deal for international and national traveler. Highly recommended!


The only positive thing about his hostel is the very comfortable bed.. the staff was good except for one very poor girl (long brown curly hair) who could barely speak English and couldn't answer my basic questions and looked very confused. She could say "I don't know" in nglish at least. There is absolutely no atmosphere whatsoever. The common room sucks and has no atmosphere at all. I didn't meet anyone there. I changed hostel softer 2 days to go to Ecopackers which was much better.


Great hostel, beds are comfortable and the best hot showers in South America by far! Also not too far from the main plaza. Free breakfast was just bread rolls w/ tea or coffee, and there generally wasn't much of an atmosphere, but the quality of the hostel facilities made up for it.


Stayed in the "superior" private double: v comfortable bed, good wifi & cable tv but otherwise disappointed. It's quite out of the way, not v close to the main areas of interest, although San Jeronimo Market is close by & there's a large supermarket (relatively rare) just round the corner. The room was under the main staircase & the noise was incredible! The room was really dark, bathroom quite dingy, the staff weren't particularly welcoming/ didn't really speak english, no atmosphere at all


Nice hostel. The front office guy really helped us alot as cusco was the first city we were visiting in peru. The atmosphere was very quiet but i guess it was the slow season. The beds were very comfortable and the rooms were clean.


A very comfortable and relaxing stay at Kilombo. rooms and bathrooms were very clean. Comfortable beds and hot showers. Great place to relax after trekking or any other activities. Supermarket 2 min walk down the road and close enough to restaurants, pubs clubs etc. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. I definitely recommend staying here if you are staying in Cusco


I had a great experience at Kilombo hostel. I stayed here for 3 nights before my Machu Picchu trip and 2 nights afterwards. The hostel is just a few blocks away from the main plaza and easy to walk anywhere you want in the city. There is also a big supermarket right around the corner form the hostel. I thought the staff was really nice and helpful whenever I had a question. The best part of the hostel to me were the rooms. The beds were comfy and bigger than most and the bathrooms were great!

Booked for two nights, ended up staying for 10 in total. Friendly staff, comfortable beds and the best shower I've had during the last 6 months. Only downside is that it doesn't have a communal kitchen but given the good dorm rates and abundance of cheap food in Cusco it doesn't really matter. Would definitely stay again!

Super cool hostel with a very nice atmosphere! The common areas are very nice and cosy and the staff is very friendly too. The only bad thing was the fact that there was only 1 bathroom for 12 people in the dorm we stayed in.. And the possibilities for charging electronic devices are very poor. But overall we really enjoyed our stay and met a lot of nice people!


Stayed in 4 bed dorm, the room was clean, had good lockers and had an en suite that was also clean. Only stayed one night as the atmosphere was a bit dead and the other 2 people in our room didn't say a word.


Stayed for 3 nights in 12 bed dorm beds are comfy, staff is helpful. Place has no character what so ever though. Big cold courtyard (sun never gets in) in the middle, with one airport-like bench and loud music playing all day. Never saw anyone sitting in the bar. No kitchen. Considering the many other hostels in Cusco which roughly all cost the same I'd stay at a different place next time.


Amazing beds. Very clean hostel. Breakfast included. Floors were creaky, which made it hard to get a good night's sleep. Delicious food. Doctor will come to the hostel if you're sick. Loud club music all day. Ping pong table.


Good hostel There is nice breakfast : tasty jam Hot water all the time The owner nir helps you in everything you need.
