I stayed at Pirwa after returning from my trek and it was the perfect place. Hostel was tucked into a corner of San Blas - quiet enough for rest and close enough to Plaza San Blas. I would definitely return if I'm in Cusco again.
Very good choice for backpackers on a budget. It's a quieter, laid-back hostel, great for getting away from the bustle on the streets, and it's one of the cheapest from what I can see. There's a kitchen you can use, and little storage room for your things if you go to Machu Picchu. It's in an awesome neighborhood, san blas. You need to go a few blocks from the main square uphill to get there, but I loved it because its a very arty, bohemian neighborhood with some chill bars and restaurants.
Staff was friendly and good environment

This is a nice hostel but be warned its very cold there. There was also a problem with our booking in that our room was given to someone else on the 1st night we'd booked it. We were offered a better room but for more money and as we're on a strict budget that wasn't much use to us. They didn't understand the concept of a discount seeing as it was their mistake, even after I spoke to head office.
Great hostal, it has all the facilities you need. The staff has been very nice and helpful ( a change from my past experience in Cuzco). They organise fun activities and its quiet at night.
