Staff is the best! Great people that really want to make the best of your stay. Very helpful, informative. On my stay they provided not only information, but also guidance and assisted me on booking the services that I needed. They were the best part of my stay. I would definitely recommend.


this was a great hotel! the ladies on the desk were not able to speak english so than in spanish that was ok. The room was clean, hot water al the time. We did a jungle tour so we can leave our backpack there without any extra costs and when we came back she booked the same room for us so it was excellent! the location very good. it was 10 minutes from the centre but lovely! breakfast very good also the girl who worked there was very kind en lovely! Stayed here 6 nights! and it was awesome!


Although not situated in the main plaza del armas or gringo hostel central the walk into the tourist town is not far at all. It was a great place to acclimatise to the altitude and recover after the long bus journey from Lima. Warm breakfast included and a great kitchen at your disposal along with wifi in the room make it very comfortable place to stay. The atmosphere was somewhat quiet but they do have a bar that looks like it would be open in high season. The staff wore a constant smile!


It has all the facilities of a nice hotel, but hostel prices and a kitchen :) Everyone here is really friendly, there is hot water all the time and the wifi works well most of the time! The only thing that you should have in mind is that it's not really in the historical/touristic center. But if you don't mind to walk 15 minutes through crowdy streets: it's a great place to stay and totally worth the money!!! We came back after our trip to Machu Picchu and enjoyed it here!
