Asked for a quiet room but could still hear the bar. Other than that was a great room and showers were hot. Bar is really good and so is the restaurant. Did the Loki jungle trek to Machu Picchu which was great. Staff were lovely


If you want a fun time in cusco come here! Bit far out from the centre with a killer hill to walk up every time!


Definitely a party hostel. Parties every night. If you want to rest, request a room farther away from the bar. Staff were very friendly and helpful, will definitely come back!


If you are looking to party great place to go. Night life scene was awesome! If you are looking to relax and prepare for a trek to machu pichu then you might want to look somewhere else. We had people talking loudly throughout the night so we decided to leave and go elsewhere. Overall you get what you want if that is partying.


Good party hostel with great bar and food,but loud at night


Loki was located up a hill from Plaza San Francisco. It had a bar which served food and also Loki Travel which we used to book our Machu Picchu trip with. The dorm room had lockers under the beds for secure storage but were a bit cold. There were also plenty of bathrooms around for general use. The bar was buzzing and played music as well as having table tennis etc. The room were also good value for money as well and there were lots of useful facilities (luggage storage).


nice place, great people in the staff

Good hostel few blocks away from Plaza Aramas, but to come here to need to climb big number of stairs on roads,which always make hard to come here. As it's party hostel so does't seems to be calm till late night.If your room is near to main bar then hard to sleep due to big noise coming out from party area. Rooms doesn't have charging points and also to get Wifi and charging pin you need to get in common area. Shower was terrible,doesn't throw water with good pressure.


Best parties, AWESOME bar... People say this hostel is far away from the center... 5 minutes walking, SO FAR! Loki hostel is the best place to meet good people and have a beer with a fair price.


Having stayed in Loki La Paz prior to arriving at Loki Cusco I was quite disappointed. The guy on check in was wasted. He made little to no sense. He lost our check in slips so we had to fill out the forms twice. The room was filthy and the wifi was extremely poor. We checked out a couple of hours later and stayed else where in Cusco.


Good hostel, cheap, comfortable beds, however cleanliness needs to improve, check in very time-consuming, it is clear they need more staff. Very fun parties but some bar staff are a arrogant. Do not have breakfast included in the daily, very bad internet.


great hostel, location not so great as it is on top of a hill and it really tires you to get there if you're not used to the altitude. The hostel is massive, lots of patios to hang out, bar had decent prices on drinks and food, beds were very comfortable and bathrooms were clean. Wifi however only works at the bar, so if you're too far away, bad luck. We had a bit of a problem regarding our reservations were we asked them to cancel one night and they cancelled the whole stay.


It's a shame the staff at the front desk were so incompetent and unapologetic for messing up our booking of a private room and then accidentally giving up the beds in a dorm they offered as a solution. It's a little way out of the centre and the private room was lovely on the one night we were allowed to stay in the room we booked.


Really dirty hostel. Staff are rude and unhelpful. Bad location. We left after 1 night.


Sometimes the bathroons were dirty, but considering the number of people using them, we can understand. The 10th anniversary party was amazing ... congratulation!! The bar is the best part in the hostel ... good (and cheap) food, nice enviroment, very nice staff. One problem that I had was to do the check out ... I couldn't pay with credit card, because it wasn't working.

If you wanted to have wifi you had to stay the whole morning in the bar. There was neither well mobile phone service so to call you had to go out of the hostel. The staff was barely nice and they never smiled. For the warm shower you had to wait from 3 to 7 minutes with the shower open and then it wasn't strong enough. The pillows were too small. Although if you want to just party then it's really perfect.

I only stayed here on the recommendation for Loki's tour desk, and the convenience of being picked up directly from the hostel for tours. Other than that, it's a pretty average hostel, with a reasonable bar on a tab system - so be wary of being charged for drinks you didn't order. Some of the rooms can be noisy if facing the bar area, which should be expected as this is a party hostel.


Great Hostel! stayed in a 6 bed dorm - very good size, comfy beds and 2 pillows and a value dorm, again comfy beds and personal lights, lockers with chargers in. Plenty of good bathrooms, hot showers most of the time. Great facilities, good chilled atmoshpere with a fun bar and great food (reasonable prices). They have their own tour agency which is great, booked the jungle trek - incredible. Only negative would be the lack of staff on reception and were very rude when trying to check in and out


We had a reservation for 3 days in a 12 mixed room. There is just 2 plugs for power in the 12 beds room. No Wi-fi in the room, neither in the reception (just in a pub). No breakfast included. The location is not great as well. Sorry, that's not a nice place to stay.
