We love pisko y soul! The breakfast was awesome- eggs with bacon, bread, jam, fruit, tea and coffee. The staff was very helpful! The location is perfect. Can't say enough good things!
Good budget hostel in a good location. Mainly the breakfast is very good. Cereal, toast, jam, fruit salad, fried or scrambled egg, bananas, tea and real coffee.
Staff were a bit hit and miss, one woman that was making breakfast was great but the guy on night duty didn't seem to have a clue what he was doing! Facilities were good with a nice homey atmosphere. Breakfast was very generous and tasty. Free pisco sours one night which was great.
A excellent hostel, one of the best we the best we stayed in. It was a trip of a life time for us - bing part of our honeymoon. Great location, nice an quiet and close walking distance to numerous restaurants and shops. The staff where so helpful too.
Pisko & Soul is a fantastic hostel located in a very ideal part of town. The staff, particularly Christian and owner Andreas were great to talk to and very helpful. The hostel was full, yet quiet which made for very peaceful nights after long days. The beds were comfortable, the showers were hot and powerful and the breakfast was one of the best I have had at any hostel in South America. I would highly recommend this hostel to anyone looking for a great hosteling experience in Cusco.

Pisco and soul was a great place to stay! The staff, especially Indira (who spoke English very well), were so helpful and polite . They let our friends store their luggage for the day and even organised them a cab to the airport. Breakfast was great with personalised eggs made on request. Our room was comfortable and warm and the location was great! Just a short walk to the main plaza via many cafes and stalls. I would highly recommend staying here! Thanks Pisco and Soul.

One of the best hostels, I ever stayed at. Huge breakfast, very friendly staff, comfy beds.
Stayed in the 6 bed dorm with a private bathroom and had probably the best shower I came across in South America. Plenty of hot water and a giant shower head with tons of pressure. Perfect after returning from the Salkantay trek. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. Cusco is a nice but exhausting city to walk around. This was a great place to come back to every afternoon to relax and catch up with other travelers.
Was happy that they stored our belongings for free during our trek to Machu Picchu. Breakfast was good also!
my sister and I really enjoyed our stay at pisko and soul. The staff was friendly and helpful! The hostel is a short walk to the main part of town. They have free coco tea available to help with adjustments to the altitude and heaters in the room in case it gets cold!
Indira and Hugo were most helpful. I arrived suffering from a mild case of altitude sickness and really wasn't highly motivated! The weather in Cusco during my stay was rainy and cold and sadly Pisko & Soul suffered - leaky stained glass dome in the recrption/breakfast area and an overall chill in the rooms. Breakfast was excellent and the staff were wonderful.
This hostel is in a great location in Cusco! It was pretty quiet, clean and secure. We enjoyed staying here during our time in Cusco. They happily stored our bags while we went trekking for 5 days, breakfast was fantastic, beds were comfortable and there was plenty of hot water. The only minor (very minor!) issue was that the staff didn't speak much English. We managed to get by using google translate but it was somewhat difficult to get the information we needed on some occasions.
Lovely hostel. Really relaxing and perfect before hiking a giant mountain. I'd stay here again and again.
Great place! Staff are really sweet and go out of their way to help you as much as they can. Nice safe, quiet location with some great restaurant options close by. Hot showers in the mornings, good basic breakfast. Would recommend to anyone travelling to Cusco!
Many thanks to the team for making my stay easy and comfortable. Particular thanks to Hugo for beinv so friendly and helpful in my stay
This is a great hostel. The staff are super friendly and all works really well :-). I had back problem during my stay and got super fast help to call a doctor and lots of friendly encouraging words. On a calm and cosy street close to everything.
The staff are really nice! Very welcoming. Cute little hostel.

Super sweet and helpful staff, very eager to offer advice on how to enjoy Cusco. However, I think it is overpriced for the quality of the rooms. Ours was quite dark and cleanliness was not a strong suit. If cleanliness and room quality are not a priority for you, then this hostel could be a good fit.
