all of the receptionists were very welcoming, and our room had a nice view of the mountainside. breakfast was ready when we went down at 5am. (tip: if you have a problem with stairs, ask for a room on the lower floors, but I think a room higher up, with a window towards the river or the mountain, is worth the walk up)
The experience was average. For the price, I didn't expect anything else. The room that I did get was very musty and I had to get new bedding for the second night because the bedding from the first night felt humid and musty. There should be better ventilation for washroom and the rooms - specially for their rooms in the back.
Slept only one night at this hostel. Was not so close to the train/bus station (takes 10-15 min walking all uphill). It was a good accomodation. Breakfast starts early (4:30-8:30 a.m.) for the ones that take the first bus to MP.
Awesome location, clean comfy beds, nice breakfast...but a not so great shower and lots of noise in the mornings. The sound just travels so easily in this place. But if you're heading up to Machu Pichu and not sleeping in I would recommend this place.
The atmosphere of the hostel was not really good. The staff could not help us at all, because they seem to be clueless about everything! Our room had no window and we had no warm water! Definitely too expensive (like everything in Aguas Calientes!)
Not the place to go for a good night's sleep, which is the only reason you're in Aguas Calientes! I had an entirely internal room, just a window onto the central staircase. I could hear every echoing step of people walking in, the TV in reception, conversations in other rooms, etc. There was also a highlight window above the door without a curtain, so the room was well lit all night too. Finally, entirely internal room = no ventilation, so the smell of cleaning product never went away.

Great for such a small city, wi fi and hot water. We got a great view room.

Pirwa is a great hostel in Aguas Calientes if you are looking for a comfortable night's sleep before heading off to Machu Picchu. The hostel is basic but the staff is wonderful and extremely helpful. They understand that everyone who is staying there is heading off to Machu Picchu in the morning and will cater to your early morning needs. The man at reception got up early for us and cooked us eggs. We would definitely recommend Pirwa B&B to anyone who is staying in Aguas Calientes.
