Property Information:

The hostel is named after the sacred peak Mama Simona - the only female mountain deity among twelve others surrounding Cusco. Mama Simona Hostel is like a good conversation over a cup of coca tea rather than a wild party; a comfortable and welcoming refuge away from the standard 'just-another-hostel' kind of place; simple wooden furniture and lots of room rather than cramped kitschy interiors. Staying with Mama Simona is like being invited into the warmth of a Peruvian home.

    This hostel was okay for a night. The Internet was poor it kept switching off. The breakfast was appalling charging for a tiny pot of Jam with your stale bread. The social area was small but comfortable. The day lockers were a good size. The hostel had a computer which was handy and were helpful when I wanted to print and use the scanner. The rooms are a good size with a small light and the bathroom was big with a hot shower. Good location not far from the main square.
