Excellent stay


We loved this hostel. The room was big, with plenty of blankets and a heater, and we always had piping hot water. The staff were all so friendly. They called cabs for us and booked our bus tickets. They offer a travel agent that can book tours for you as well. While we didn't eat breakfast at the hostel (there were too many cafes in San Blas we wanted to try!) it looked really good, with the option for a lot of different extras. You get a beautiful view of Cusco from the upper rooms too!


The staff were brilliant met me at the airport and James the tour guide has been brilliant helping me to arrange all my on going travel and tours. Thank you for a good stay in Cusco.

BEST view of Cusco from the balcony/terrace that they have. This hostel is located in the San Blas neighborhood, so be prepared to walk up a bunch of stairs. I didn't want a party hostel, and this was perfect. Met lots of really cool people that were about to go to Machu Pichu or were just coming back so it was great to be able to get tips and share stories with people.


Nice hostel. Clean and cozy rooms, big ensuite bathrooms in dorms, and nice staff. Decent breakfast with awesome rooftop views! Only downside is our room was literally right next to front desk and it was very loud late into night and early in the morning.


Extremely nice staff that is always looking out for the guests. They made sure we had the best experience in Cusco and helped us with all our needs and questions. The rooftop terrace is also amazing to relax in the sun and have a nice view over Cusco.


Great view of the city. Very affordable price, which includes a nice breakfeast.


10 minute walk from the main plaza with gorgeous view of the city. James, the airport pickup person and travel agent, was extremely kind and helpful. He helped me figure out a Machu Picchu excursion and met me the morning I left to make sure everything was all set. The whole staff was very friendly. Hot water always worked, and excellent water pressure. The hostel was pretty quiet, but if you aren't looking for a party hostel than this is your place.


A great place to stay in Cusco! It has the best view of the city where you can sit and drink wine or have an appetizer. Friendly and helpful staff.


The hostel was beautiful, especially the view overlooking Cuzco. The staff was nothing short of stellar, very accommodating and had lots of information on the city. The location was very close to the center of town and it was really the ideal hostel for us.
