Great atmosphere and a fantastic location! Cool bar area and cheap tours avaliable, Machu Piccu tours for $130 (a lot cheaper than Peru or Inca rail). Hot showers, Pisco Sour and BBQ nights all super affordable! Opposite a large supermarket as well...

Great staff. Fast Wifi. There is a supermarket just across the street which is super handy. Area is a short walk from the main plaza, but also quiet.

I stayed in one of the single bed rooms after my hike to Machu Picchu and I think it is the way to go. The staff went above and beyond to help me with all my requests. I would stay here on my next visit.

The staff was friendly and always ready to help at all hours. The room I was in on the first floor towards the back was cold at night - so bundle up. The shared bathrooms were not the best but I am sure there are worst out there. Free WiFi is always a plus. The free breakfast is ok - its free. They have a luggage room to store your stuff if you are taking one of the hikes to machu picchu. Not a crazy party hostel so you can rest quietly at night. Overall I had a good experience. Thanks!

For the price it was a great and comfortable place to stay and we re-booked for another night after our Salkantay trek. Hostel is about a 5-10 min walk from the town square, but still near a lot of convenient stores and restaurants. Only real downsides are not great internet, and I was a little frustrated by a some of the staff on a couple of occasions with some comments that were made to me (supposedly as jokes, but they came out quite insulting).

Very accomodating, they filled me up with pisco sour and alpaca and also helped me out when I had everything stolen off me whilst being out one night. Really nice people and a good environment, if I come back to cusco I will stay here again.

Awesome location and amazingly helpful staff (with decent english). Not a party hostel but still a young, communal atmosphere. Rooms were awesome, though the shower curtain was moldy and it's hard to get a good compromise between water pressure and temperature. Best part is the option of bacon and eggs for breakfast! Also the only hostel we stayed at when the outside noise couldn't wake us up at 6 am. Loved it so much we booked a second night for our return to Cuzco!

VIP house is one of the best hostel I have ever stay!! All the staff were super friendly, and kind, they bought me hot water bag because I got a cold. Good internet connection, free tea, good breakfast with fried egg. =)

We made a booking, but when we got there they said the room was unavailable and had to stay elsewhere. We stayed there a second night, only had cold showers. I do not recommend.

The location and infrastructure around are great. You can find a supermarket just across the street and nice and cheap restaurants some meters away. I must have overlooked that it doesn´t have a kitchen when I booked the hostel. And the showers aren´t great. But the breakfast ist very nice.

Not enough hot water

Security: 4/5 - Rooms are always unlocked, but there is storage they can put things in for more secure storage. Rooms are not cold like other reviewers said. They have several blankets on each bed. Wifi is very slow, but tolerable. Staff is super helpful and friendly. Some speak English well, others just a little, but enough to get by. Beds are not always reliable. Some had springs poking me. Showers are touchy. Can be kept warm, but gotta have the right touch.

One of the best hostels I've been to. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful, always there to help you or just have a nice chat about Cusco or any big else. The facilities and rooms are great and comfortable. Bathrooms are extremely clean with hot showers. The environment is a plus, this hostel is perfect to meet new people and to have a nice night of rest after a long day touring. Totally recommend it!!
