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.

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


Party hostel, if you are inyo sleeping earlier than 3 am dont come here, plenty of other hostels to go to with shorter-than-40-minutes check-in. If you are into partying, this is the place.


I loved staying at Loki. The bar has the best atmosphere to make friends, the rooms are very clear, the staff could not be more helpful and friendly. Even though it is not exactly at the core of the historial centre, it totally pays off staying there. I would definitely recommend it.
