We had a private bathroom but no hot shower all the time, we had to be lucky or let the water flow for about 10 minutes in order to get hot water. Cuzco is suffering for lack of water, so this is not the best alternative. I could use some hooks in the bedroom, to hang towels, coats, jeans, put some clothes to dry and so on. Otherwise, it's a really nice stay, nice people, atmosphere and a really nice restaurant, with good food and price.
A great place to stay in Cusco. It's got a really nice social vibe without being too much of an over-the-top party hostel. There's fun to be had if you want it, but you can also get some sleep if that's what you need. The staff were helpful, everything was clean, the common rooms were comfortable, and the food and drinks at the bar/cafe were good (maybe a little on the expensive side but not too bad).

Everything is great. Showers had pressure and hot water, activities everyday and a bar / restaurant. Free breakfast. Baggage storage free. Laundry pickup. Awesome location central to sanfrancisco plaza. Can be noisey with the bar at night so bring ear plugs and eye shades when staying at hostels and you will have a better sleep. Will stay again. 24 hr check in / out.
On saturday is too noisy! They have party in the hostel and they don't have a room good for it :-( if you want to sleep don't go there on friday and sarurday
Nice hostel, but very very big (almost like a hotel) and very loud at night
good hostel, great location, clean and friendly, nice showers
Great hostel with a central location, bar gets going at night but you can't hear it from the dorms if you want a quiet night... The bar tender Jesus was great! He was always happy to help out in anyway possible. Deserves a pay rise!
Excellent hostel. Located 5 min from the San Pedro Market and 1 min from the historic centre. Pretty good (and big) lockers with powerboxes inside, safe luggage storage, door man. Staff nice and helpful. Atmosphere is a little strange, everyone seems to ignore each other. God a nice bar and breakfast room, many PCs. I recommend the hostels travel agency. If you order a taxi here, it will cost you 4 times the prices of a ordinary one.
Great location, friendly staff, very clean, big & comfy beds. Can´t recommend it enough!
Great hostel! Well located in Miraflores, clean, organized and has a beautiful decor . But the best are the beds : large and comfortable.
Amazing atmosphere. One of the bests Hostels I know.

This was a fantastic hostel. Social in the courtyard and bar, but quiet in the rooms where you need it. The staff were helpful, especially when I didn't feel well due to the altitude. The beds were comfortable with feather duvets and extra blankets. My only complaint was the Internet, it was slow and not available in the rooms. The best signal was in the bar
My first two night was ok and nothing wrong about it,Until we came back from Machu Picchu,hell break loss, I ask for the same room and it was agreed and a was noted, but I was given another room on my third night,I was was told to pack my bag and need to move to another room on the fourth night that was hell broke lose, When I came late about 2200 I was given a room on the third floor meter from the water pump, which start on of off very 20 to 30 minutes and get worse towards the dawn every 10 s
This hostel is beautiful. Staying here makes you feel like you are really on an exotic holiday. The six bed dorm is really small but the private room is beyond amazing and worth the extra dollars! We booked a horse riding tour organised by the hostel which was one of the best experiences we had in Peru and great value for money. The hostel also has a tour desk - do not use this. We booked a lake Titicaca tour and it was really bad. Hostel has a great atmosphere, awesome bar and is lots of fun
Really nice place! The only thing that bothered me a little bit was the electronic music in common areas during the day every single day.
When I arrived at 2pm,bed was done,but there was another person underwear all around my bed!I complained but they did nothing and told me to wait for the girl to come back. WiFi not working. 10pm quiet policy is a joke: staff checked in guests at midnight w/ 3ppl sleeping, turned on ALL the lights and kept talking loud even though she saw ppl sleeping. Got food poisoning after eating nothing else but from their restaurant in 36h. Staff does a great job at ignoring customer, bar & reception alike
AMAZING hostel. Beautifully laid out, quiet where it should be and more of a party elsewhere. The staff is nice and accommodating. They are all helpful and know what they're doing-- they have a great system for everything. If you are a tired traveler and want a comfy bed and WARM/HOT shower/bath, then splurge and book the suite here. I could have lived there-- I didn't want to leave. Take my word for it... you will not be disappointed!
The travel agency run by this hostel is a complete rip-off. They sold me a bus ticket to Copacabana for 120 soles when it cost only 50 soles at the bus station. I even asked them when I bought it how much it would be at the bus station. They said they didn´t know. Liars. The staff at the bus station were shocked at the price I had paid and even took down my name, so that they could raise the issue with the hostel. Don´t trust these people.. their only goal is to take advantage of tourists.
Excellent location and the bed was very comfortable and warm. It was loud tho as my room was right next to the courtyard
