The hostel was very comfortable, and the staff friendly. Only stayed one night but it was perfect. Breakfast was good although the make sure you wake up early. Overall a very a nice stay!

Excellent buffet breakfast with bread, jam, squash, tea, coffee, cereal, yoghurt and bananas. The receptionist was very helpful in giving information about Machu Picchu. The shower pressure and temperature was the best we have had in Peru. There is a kitchen available for use and plenty of food shops and restaurants nearby. Overall pleased we chose this hostel for our stay in Aguas Calientes.

The hostel was okay. They kept the sheets clean, but the bathrooms were a mess. The shower heads sprayed in all different directions, none of which sprayed on you. To top it off the entire place smelled of mold and was very stinky.


Decent and surprisingly not a busy one. I've heard there are cheaper options around, but I'm ok with this one. I've booked a dorm bed though bcuz there was no one else,I pretty much had the whole room!
