Fun hostel with party atmosphere, located a bit away from the center up a steep hill/long flight of stairs
A party hostel, but still provides a clean and restful stay
Stayed here for one night in a private room. Facilities in the room were adequate and the room was lovely and clean. However, the room I was given was RIGHT next to the bar/ common area. Therefore there was loud music blasting most of the night - although this is the case I just put earplugs in and was good. I loved the arm band system and the bar had great food. If you're after a fun hostel to have a few drinks and meet people (but not get much sleep) this is your place.
The hostel is good value for money and the dorms are comfortable. However, it's located at the top of a steep hill about a 10-minute walk away from the centre. Also it's very cold throughout the hostel. Wifi only works in the bar area. The showers were always cold.
Although the center of town is not too far away, you have to walk uphill to get to the hostel, which after a long night or a hike at Machu picchu is brutal. most other hostels are in the center of town which is much more convenient. Also, there's no wifi anywhere except the bar, which is really inconvenient. Lack of chill couches and hang out facilities other than the bar.
The Hostel was really nice. The building itself was nice with some grass court yards inside. My room was spacious and clean, the bed was decent. The hostel bar was really cool, it had a good atmosphere with nice staff. The food in the bar was lovely and the prices were reasonable.
The hostel is located at the top of stairs about 4 blocks back from the plaza de armas. I didn't like the walk up and all the feral dogs in that area. The reception staff are rude and don't go out of their way to help you. The hostel is a party hostel so music blaring until 2am. Don't stay here if you want to sleep! Otherwise the guys in the travel agent at really helpfull and its very clean.
Great friendly staff who certainly made up for the fact that there was a bit of a walk to the centre of town.
Loki is a fun party hostel. Don't go there if you need a good night sleep but if you want to party and a have a great time it's the place for you. Check-in and out take a very long time and at times seem very disorganised. This could stand to be improved however the rooms are cheap, the food is good and the bar is a lot of fun. We stayed in a dorm and a private both were good with good facilities and the dorm had huge lockers which roll under the bed.
I loved stay in Loki Cusco because of the atmosphere. The staff in the bar and reception were really cool! The restaurant/bar has a party every night and it's worthy too! A few cameras would be a good idea to keep the guests safer. I had my mobile stolen and if there were cameras, we could have a look. I had similar situation in another hostel in another country and it made the difference to find who had taken it.

Loki has parties everynignt, showers are hot. Breakfast is standard, it's a pretty good hostel to stay at, so I recommend highly to other young people. Easy to meet people. Only down side to this place is the two Australian Bartenders, I think there brothers, I would order something and they would never return with the drink, they were stuck up and felt as if they didn't care about paying customer and more about having conversations with each other.
Party hostel, nuff said. Everything else was pretty good. Bar staff was awesome but one of the travel agents was pretty useless and the staff up front also could use some improvement or extra help.
In my personal opinion...too far from rest of hostel cluster. We were places in the dungeon rooms so super freezing and too loud from noise outside. Couple of the female staff were relly sweet but the other two were extremely rude for no reason especially upon checkout
Great staff, tons of fun. LOVE Loki!!!

Cons: No kitchen! Computers in the room never have internet and they are really slow. Also, they run on Linux. You have to walk up 70m of stairs to get to the hostel. Pro: Beautiful and huge place. Parties every night. From the rooms I stayed in (415
1. Don't go if you like sleep - unless it is sleep fuelled by alcohol. 2. Do go if 1. doesn't apply to you.
Really good hostel with a great vibe, good bar and food, in a great location, with helpful staff. The only thing I could comment on is the cold, there was an open door to the outside next to our room which was left open all night. They do offer extra blankets though, so I wasn't too cold for too long,
Its a party hostel, if you want to sleep dont book there. It´s clean and the staff is ok. Location is very bad. 10min walk from the center and the road is very step!! Hard walk.
