Thank you for everything, it was a pleasure to stay there & each and every one of the staff were incredible. My only tiny complaint is the toilet paper, it's like sandpaper! haha.


Great hostel. Clean rooms, hot showers, and staff were very helpful and knowledgable. Very comfy place to stay! My only minor complaint is that the wifi is only available in the common areas, not the bedrooms.


No atmosphere. Very quiet. Recommend this hostel to someone who wanna have some good rest in a quiet place. Bed is very comfortable. Clean facilities. Breakfast is bad. Just bread.


Brilliant little place. 5 minute walk from the main plaza. Very clean, comfortable beds and warm shower. Wifi works in communal area. Staff were helpful and we were ale to spend the night in their sister hostel also called Mama Simona in Ollanteyambo on our way to Matchu Pitchu. Definately recommend.


Good location, about 5-10 minute walk from the main plaza, nice hostel with a chilled atmosphere. I'd stay here again!


Comfortable beds and nice environment. 4 blocks from the main plaza. Staff are helpful and there is a peaceful atmosphere without it being boring.


Really nice, quiet, comfy hostel with excellent kitchen facilities and good rooms. It was the perfect spot for us to chill out after our Inca Jungle Trek. Decent Internet connection and hot water. They have very large storage lockers to use while trekking also.


We really liked Mama Simona, since the room and main areas were very nice, breakfast was ok and the staff was very helpfull with taxi bookings, tipps and so on. The location sis good, you can walk to the main square Plaza de Armas easily and reach all other highlights of Cusco by walking. The Hostel is very nice, style is very cosy and the room with private bathroom was very clean. Exept it was a little cold since they do not provide a heating (like most accomadation in Peru).
