    I LOVED staying at El TUCO! The owners are so sweet and care taking, and give a lot of good advice and help, on what to do, how to do it cheap and how to get around. The rooms are nice and clean. I stored my things here, while going on the Salkantay trek for 5 days, and stayed here again, when I returned. Thank you so much Jorge and Co. 🙏🏼❤️

    Coco and Anna were amazing hosts during my stay in Cusco. I wanted to get a private room to rest properly before my trip to Machu Picchu. My first room was on the 2nd floor with a nice balcony that allowed a decent amount of sunshine and fresh air whenever I wanted. The showers never ran out of hot water. The bed was comfortable and had plenty of blankets to stay warm as the nights get pretty cold. Coco and Anna gladly stored the bulk of my luggage as I hiked Salkantay to Machu Picchu!

    Had a great stay here! The owners were super friendly and kind - I arrived incredibly early in the morning from a night bus and they let me have my room immediately. Room was excellent value for money and I had a lovely hot shower too which is always a bonus. Although the hostel isn’t immediately in the centre of cusco - I didn’t ever feel unsafe walking home alone in the evening. Would reccomend.

    Had a wonderful stay at El Tuco. My wife and I enjoyed the bed and breakfast atmosphere. Coco and his wife made us feel like family and catered to our every need. We stayed two nights, then hiked the Salkantay trail. We stayed another night after completing the trek.

    Lovely hostel! Great atmosphere, the hostel owner, is absolutely wonderful. He is always available for any of your needs and happy to help. The hostel itself looks great, places to sit and calm down and very clean. Free storage for any baggage you have, nice breakfasts, very hot showers, great wifi. Close to the San Pedro market and only few minutes from the main square. Highly highly recommended!

    I was very happy with my stay at El Tuco Hostel. Coco and his wife are extremely nice and very flexible to my needs. When my boyfriend and I arrived before the check-in time they had breakfast for us while we waited for the room to be ready. They also allowed us to leave our bags in the hostel while we left for 4 day trek to Machu Picchu. El Tuco is comfortable and has a home vibe. The location was perfect too! I definitey recommend this hostel for a visit to Cusco!

    In what was a difficult time for me and my friend, Coco offered a great deal of flexibility. Dealing with their guests with the consideration and kindness, Coca and his wife provide a sanctuary in their erratic and intriguing city. our stay was cut short, sadly so, as this was an excellent place to spend our time in Cusco. In 4 hours, due to our circumstances, we changed our plans 4 times. which they accepted without a hint of frustration. Incredible hosts, better people.

    Really nice and homely place to stay run by some great people who immediately make you feel at home. Super helpful with tips for our Machu Picchu trip and we even returned here after! Special mention of the pancakes at breakfast which even by French standards were super tasty!! See you next time!

    We had a great stay at El Tuco. They cleaned the room every day and Coco (the host) made sure we had everything we needed. The shower was always hot and powerful. Beds were comfy. Had a lovely view of Cusco out of the window. Although located on a Main Street, the windows were really soundproof and there was no noise. Room was huge. Good supermarkets nearby and 15min walk to the Plaza. Well equipped kitchen for cooking. There was there was no heater so could get cold at night but plenty of thick blankets w
