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.


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.


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.


Very nice hostel with a great atmosphere. We had a lot of fun and meet so many nice people here! The concept with the restaurant in the common area is awesome, and it's very cheap too. Our dorm was a bit tiny for the amount of people though.. Not as cosy as the LOKI hostel in Cusco (there should be some more places to chill out) but still a very nice hostel where you get the best oppertunities to meet new people.


We really loved this hostel and had the best time on our trip here! The staff are so nice and openminded, and good to make you feel welcome. The rooms/bathrooms are comfortable and cleaned every day. The common areas are perfect for a chill out day, with hammocks, sofas etc.. We really enjoyed partying in the bar and meet so many awesome people from all around the world. A huge plus is the restaurant where they make the best food - perfect when you have hangovers! Only minus is the bad WIFI..


The best hostel in Cusco, for sure. Amazing environment, good place to have a beer at the bar and meet new people. Confortable beds also.


The perfect hostel if you want to party. If you don't I would suggest earplugs! The hostel was clean, and the food in the bat is cheap and good although breakfast is not included. The only other thing is that the stairs up to the hostel are a killer :)


Clean and cheap, 100% recommended

The hostel is fantastic and has good facilities. The staff are fantastic and the food delicious. Compared to other hostels we've stayed in the atmosphere wasn't great. If you're looking to stay in a party hostel then you might want to choose somewhere else.


Do not stay here 1 Check in took over an hour with zero organization 2 We arrived after checkout and had to wait another hour for our room 3 The showers would stop mid shower and the water smelt terrible 4 The staff was extremely rude (even when we spoke Spanish to them) 5 It took 2 hours to rent a towel 6 The outlets in the room were broken and they said we would have to pay to charge our phones in office. The most disappointing was the atmosphere. not positive at all. STAY AT INTRO.


Loki is everything people say it is. In terms of atmosphere it is definitely one of the top of Cuzco. The facilities are adequate and generally good. I lucked out with one of the rooms away from the party scene because it gets a bit noisy. I can not speak for other stuff because I left early but there is tea available which is nice. It is very safe and they provide plenty of storage. The only caveat is the location that is not by Plaza de armas and up a hill making it a bit harder to get to.


I wouldn't come back to any Loki hostel. I had to wait more than one hour just to be attended by the staff, just to figure out that they lost my reservation (they were overbooked) and they relocated me on a half finished room. Wifi doesn't work on the hostel, only on the bar (which is abusively expensive). Bathrooms are dirty most of the time. Again, I would never come to any Loki hostel. There are other hostels in Cuzco with better installations, atmosphere and staff for less price.


The hostel is at the top of a hill so a bit of a trek but no big deal really. We have a private room which was lovely, complimentary towels, shampoo sachets, fruit and even hot water bottles! Would recommend
