The Kokopelli Cusco is very good! The Staff is friendly and excellent location (nearby drugstores, minimarkets, restaurants and the Plaza de Armas). The breakfast is okay, BUT the guests can only drink one cup of juice!!! In my opinion, that's RIDICULOUS! Apart from that, is a excellent hostel! Recommed!

THE HOSTEL HAS NO KITCHEN!! which sucks b/c cusco is a bit of a tourist trap but the market is amazing and cheap. also some of the staff, both permanent and volunteer, were rude. the hostel looks nice, w/ art on the walls, and the showers are actually hot. that said, w/ the number of hostels in cusco you can get better value for your $ somewhere else, i changed hostels.

Best shower in Peru. Stayed in private double which was good. Staff not overly friendly, no information volunteered, had to ask about all facilities. Good location in centre of historic area.

Kokopelli is very centrally located, close to most important sights (especially Plaza de Armas & San Pedro / San Francisco); nice bar with fine food and drinks; helpful and kind staff; private rooms (ensuite) are spacious and very comfortable as they dispose in addition to the bed a couch; travel agency desk offers interesting activities and tours at fair prices

Well located, helpful staff, and there were activities every night I was there, with live music in the bar too. Also let me check in my room at 6am which was very much appreciated after an overnight bus journey to Cusco

Adding a kitchen would be great. Not enough places to charge cell phones etc.

Nice place with a great location, but the traditional layout with 2 open courtyards makes it cold unless you are in your room or the bar. Great atmosphere the first night, with live music then a disco in the bar, but after that the bar was pretty quiet every night, so not as good a place as expected for meeting people.

Moved to Kokopelli after another hostel in Cusco, it has an amazing location with a great vibe, met some cool travelers here and won't forget their wicked parties over New Years. Bravo koko.

Private room was pretty much like a hotel, very modern, comfortable and clean. Was tempted to lift up the sheets and see where the mattress was from because it was that comfortable. Wifi was temperamental but whenever it wasnt working the hostels computers were fine. Bar was very good value, delicious and good sized meals at dirt cheap prices.

Kokopelli is a party hostel and a great place to meet ppl. But if u plan on going on any traks that require that u get up early it is not a place to stay. The night staff was either still drunk or hung over an not interessted in work if u get up early. Also the bar is on the second floor and rather loud if u stay in a 6bed doorm. Breakfast is ok but the staff here aswell not so friendly. The hostel has clean an good facilities. Leaving bags in the storage room is scetchy as bags are not taged.

Overall, my stay at Kokopelli Cusco was great. I was a little let down by the reception staff when I first checked in. I was just given a room key and told where my room is. No friendly greeting, no tour of the hostel, no map of the city pointing out where we were and interesting things around us (I had to ask for the map) They had free tea in the hall way...wouldn't have known because no one told me; nor was I told about breakfast. The bar staff is excellent, and overall good experience!

Kokopelli Hostel Cusco is in a great location and has a very nice atmosphere, thanks to the layout, the cool decoration, and the young travellers it normally hosts. The staff speaks English, they are intelligent, very friendly and helpful. They have all the facilities backpackers normally need. The owner of the hostel chain - a cool young guy, who seemed to have done his share of backpacking over the years - helped me out when I had a problem with my credit card, which I am very grateful for.
