Great size room and good location. The staff was very nice- they actually returned us money when they realized they accidentally overcharged us. Perfect for it's value, clean and quiet.

This is a nice place if you dont want to be in a giant mixed room filled with 12 people. shower was a little tricky but didn't bother me to much. its close to the train station and not far from the bus station either. breakfast starts at 4:30am because you want to get to the bus line early, or else it will be really long.

Nice hostel within walking distance from both the train and bus station. If you email the hostel before your arrival, they will pick you up at the train station.The staff was friendly, breakfast good and you can leave your bags at the hostel while hiking Machu Picchu. The only downside is that some of the rooms only have windows facing the stairways inside the building (no fresh air and a bit noisy, especially if you want to sleep early) - ask for a room on the 2nd floor with a window!

Wonderful hot showers, Clean room, great breakfast - starts at 4:30 if you want to leave early for the ruins. The location is great from the train, it's not on the busy tourist side so quiet at night. There is a small waiting area to sit, but you want to be out at the ruins.

Very helpful and cheerful staff with lots of small details (guidebooks available, free flow of coca tea, included breakfast) that make the experience enjoyable for a reasonable price!

The hostel next door was very loud and kept us up.

Breakfast was good. A little loud at night depending on which room you get, but it's good for the night before Macchu Pichu.

Staff- not friendly. Family owned. Operated by wife. Never smiles. Speaks only Spanish and if one doesn't there is no attempt to interact(hand signals...). Atmosphere. Very structured and not warm. Value for money. Might not have been a bad value EXCEPT for fact she didn't discount amount paid online and amount paid was greater than amount listed on Internet. Facilities. During day construction noise. Night families children and loud TV went on to midnight. No quiet zones!!

Our one-night stopover for the Machu Picchu hike so location from train station (easy 5-6 minute walk) and to the bus lineup (~8 minute walk) was good. Basic facilities were clean. Breakfast served at 4:30 got you to the bus on time. They will keep your bags for the day, if hiking/checked out. Wifi reception is fantastic! TIP: after the hike and if you are heading directly to the train, then a few soles will get you access to a quick shower even if you've checked out that morning.

comfy beds, nice staff. They let us leave our bags after we checked out while we did Macchu Picchu. Breakfast was good and even offered eggs! The only complaint would be that they kept all the lights off in the hallways and common areas so there wasn't much atmosphere. It was hard to even find our door in the darkness. Overall, we enjoyed a good sleep before Macchu Picchu but not a party hostel.

They serve a nice breakfast as early as you want it (after 4.30am) so that you can get up to MP before the crowds. In the more local side of town but a short walk to restaurants. Etc. luggage store so you can go to MP with just a day pack. Good place to stay

Great hostel in Aguas Calientes! The staff was friendly, the breakfast was very filling (perfect before MP) and there was always hot water available for the showers. Would definitely recommend!

We had a wonderful time staying at this hostel. Staff were super friendly and even went to pick us up at the station late at night (took the 9 train), they offer breakfast since 4 30 in the morning which is perfect for going to machu picchu, perfect for having a nap after climbing huaynapicchu. Overall no complaints.

Great location near train station. I wish the owners/employees new some English, but we managed to communicate. It was very clean and comfortable. Seemed like a place run with family pride. They were very accommodating with a delicious breakfast very early which most travellers need to get to Machu Picchu or on the early trains.
