    Best stay I've had in Cusco! The family was very hospitable and accomadated to my needs, especially with early tours in the morning. Great place to get a good night's sleep with amazing hot water also.

    Coco goes outta his way to help you wherever he can. He really cares about making you feel comfortable during your stay. It’s not a party hostel, but a perfect place to relax after long days around Cusco. Internet’s good, showers hot, and you can leave your luggage here if you do a trip to Machu Picchu (which he helped us book). Would definitely recommend if you want a place to rest and relax here in Cusco

    We really enjoyed our stay!:) Our host Coco was so great!! He let us check in early our first day when we arrived in at 7am which was a real luxury. Our room was cleaned daily and the staff were great for giving advice and help for our trip. We ended up extending our stay here which was no hassle and we were able to keep our bags there during our trek. Great place for couples, nice and quiet to enjoy a good night's rest during all the hiking! Definitely recommend!!🤗

    Stayed here for about 1.5 weeks and we felt the property was great! It’s not a party hostel and one with much social vibes. It’s perfect if you’re looking to escape from the typical hostel crowds and have alone time for a few days. Coco and his wife were great! They were always very accommodating and helpful in arranging trips for us and making sure we were taken care of. We would definitely stay here on our next trip to Cusco!

    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.

    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!

    It's located on a busy junction. I chose it from the rating but that's surely inaccurate. There are many nice hostels in centro historico for less. You have to pay for hand soap for the toilet, and water costs 9 soles! If you want to go out you have to wait for the owner to release you. I wanted to check out on the next day but the host didn't let me. He agreed I can leave a night early, but it turned out they wanted to charge the full price. There was no vibe and I didn't feel comfortable.
