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.


Great hostel in Cusco. Atmosphere is great and the beds are warm and comfy. Ample facilities for backpackers. Hot water. WIFI on the rooms near the common hall. It is located near Plaza de Armas and Mercado San Pedro...you won't need anything else. However, the complimentary breakfast could have been more sustaining. I would still recommend it.


A cosy hostel and one of the best we've stayed in in three months! Not a party hostel but great vibe and mix of ages, groups and non. Big duvets and beds With personal plugs and lamp great dining area and kitchen, lovely staff, unlimited tea and coffee and strong wifi! Great hostel, a home from home


Best part about this hostel is that it is not a party hostel - everyone is quiet, chill, and respectful of each other in terms of noise level. Location is great, staff is friendly and flexible. The only downside was that Wifi was a little spotty on one of the days. Hot water is great!


Wonderful staff, great location, comfy beds & duvets, sadly wifi doesn't reach bedrooms but this is only a small issue. Showers were mostly fine, we had a couple of duds at busy times but we stayed in about 3 different rooms and were dealt with professionally and amiably. Would return every time!


We were greeted by friendly staff everyday. They worked with us even though our schedule changed. They had all the amenities we needed such as tp, towels (for a fee), hot showers, warm beds, good internet. It's located just a short walk from the plaza de armas. There was an awesome 2 hour laundry service just a block away. Breakfast was cheap. The free breakfast included bread, jam and coffee. For just a little bit, you can get a breakfast sandwich or eggs. Staff was always available.
