Property Information:

The Point Hostel Cusco is only two blocks from the pubs, clubs, restaurants and shopping of the city's centre - and is run by backpackers for backpackers. Opened in 2006, this hostel provides a fun, safe and relaxed atmosphere and makes a great starting point for your explorations of Cusco, Machu Picchu, and the Sacred Valley.

Like all Point Hostels, you’ll find our friendly (English speaking) staff to be some of the best in Peru. We can book attractions for you directly from our onsite travel center: including Machu Picchu travel packages, Sacred Valley tours, bus and walking tours of Cusco, bungee jumping, zip-lining, and more. We’re also happy to assist you with purchasing bus tickets or arranging airport transportation once you’re ready to continue on your journey... though we won't be surprised if you don't want to leave!

The Horny Llama bar is one of the hottest nightlife spots in Cusco, a great place to meet and mingle with fellow backpackers. Our restaurant features a wide variety of Peruvian and international food. After the bar closes at 1am, our expert nightlife guides will take you out to experience the vibrant clubs and bars of Cusco, where you’ll receive free admission (no cover) with your Point wristband.

    It is a good hostel with excellent facilities. But they should improve with their staff. For exemple, when I arrive no one showed me the hostel Just informed the room and that's all. I had often to go to reception to ask things which could be told me when I arrived (where was the toaillets, wifi password, breakfast time, etc.). One day also in the breakfast I arrive 8:30am and the coffee and bread had finish. It took more than 30 minutes to someone from staff came and put again the breakfast.
