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.

great time staying with kokopelli on serveral occasions, friendly staff, great atmosphere, location was close to everything! on the top of my hostel lists, would stay there again!
The hostel is well located, the bar is always lively. As my room was in the background, the noise did not bother me, but I imagine that should disturb those who sleep more in front. The hot water works!
Awesome hostel in a great location 5 mins from the centre. Decent bar to meet people with friendly staff. Cool hostel layout with lots of areas to chill or socialise. 8 bed deluxe dorm pods are brilliant. Every hostel should have them!
Great hostel! Staff is very very friendly and helpfull. The rooms are clean and they have hot showers!! which not every hostel in Peru can say. They have a lot of facilities, like internet, bar, breakfast, laundry service etc. They also offer great lunch boxes! I would definitely recommend this hostel!
Great hostel. Very organized but still chill. Friendly, English speaking staff. Nice breakfast, eggs included til 9am. Wifi all over, decently fast. Small personal security lockers in office for charging phones/iPods. Great bar with food for lunch and dinner. Good drinks and good/affordable food(grilled chicken with fries, rice, and salad for $13 soles). Tour company in house. Great location few blocks from the plaza de armas. Would stay again.
I stayed here in 2012 and had an awesome time. This year was a bit quieter and it lacked atmosphere. I stayed in the deluxe dorm and the new additions such as a private curtain and built in locker are a great idea. All hostels should have built in plug sockets to lockers! Booked a bus ticket through their agency, was charged 60s and when I collect the ticket it was 40s. The seat I had reserved had been given to someone else. My advice is to walk to the bus station yourself and buy your ticket.
Great place to stay! We ended up getting a little sick an had to spend a few extra days at the hostel but we were glad it had to be at this place. Great breakfast, beds, showers, staff, location, and atmosphere. Highly recommend this place for parties and non.
nice staff, scrambled eggs for breakfast and very nice hostel... i would come back ;)
Throughout our 3 week trip in Peru, this has to be the best hostal we stayed in. As soon as we arrived we were made to feel at home and the staff were extremly helpful. One member of staff in partcular, went through the tourist map of Cusco and highlghted popular places to eat/ drink and visit whilst we were in the city. Cleanest bathrooms in Peru and hot water all day. You get your own safe in your room under your bed and there is someone manning the front door 24/7, very secure. JUST FAB!
Great place to stay, amazing location, helpful staff and hot, clean showers!
Very nice hostel, great location. Had some wifi issues one day but worked again at night. Do not recommend their tour service regarding bus travels. They work with tour peru, i had to change buses twice (i knew that changing at the border is necessary) to la paz, and from the border to la paz i had to sit on a doorstep next to the driver due to no availability. 2 were left behind in Copacabana.
This is definitely the best hostel I've ever stayed in. The place is great and it's only 5 minutes walk from Plaza de Armas.
Pros: Very helpfull staff. Good restaurant. Cons: People are alowed to smoke inside the dorms.
Me and my brother stayed there a few days. The Hostel is very close to the City Center, the staff is really nice and helpfull. The rooms are very nice but sometimes the don't have hot water in the shower. The bar is also great and you have 3 Computers with internet. All in all it's really nice there but also a little bit expensive.
Very good privte room for other cusco places to stay. A bit stange personel, breakfast 7.30 - 10.00 but eggs and juice only untill 9, and nobody informs you about this. Airport pickup doesnt show up! Even thou like 10 emails.
Comfy beds, fantastic bathrooms with hot showers, a fun bar (we loved the acoustic music) and a great atmosphere overall. It was great to hear from the owners of Kokopelli hostels as well, we definitely felt cared about and at home! Highly recommended.
We used Kokopelli as our base for many trips ou of Cusco. Staff very accommodating with change of plans. Absolutely loved room 105 which was an 8 bed dorm with individual pods for bunk beds with own huge locker built in. You could also pull the curtain in your bunk if you wanted to do some reading without disturbing others. Hot showers were amazing, really good pressure.
