    Gaia was so so great. It was a recommendation from someone else and I am so happy I listened to them. It was a perfect place to rest, as it’s so calm in there. The beds are super comfy and they’re not bunk beds so you don’t get bothered at night. I’d so recommend Gaia, the staff is the sweetest and the location is in the most beautiful part of town.

    So far, the best hostel I've stayed in. They don't have the bunk beds, only the one level of beds, and each is separated from the others by a wall and a curtain - I loved that. I got a really good sleep there. And a huge bonus - no smell of male socks!! The staff was very friendly, and when I asked if they could securely keep my laptop while I travel, they helped me with that as well.

    Great location in the San Blas District. Five minutes walk to the Square. Great security. Hot water. Very nice staff. Good value for the money. Has a nice courtyard and a good kitchen. My breakfast was included.

    A little further out, but easily accessible to Plaza de Armas via walking. No close access to road with car so carrying suitcase up the steps to the hostel can be a bit tiring (especially because of the altitude!) However the staff were really kind and made an effort at remembering names. Was able to leave bags when leaving early/departing late. They also called a taxi for me to the airport and cooked breakfast every morning.

    Loved the hostel. We stayed in the private room and it was nice to have all the space. The ceilings are a bit short so if you're a taller person (I am 5 ft 6in) it might be difficult to stand all the way up at times. The bathroom was also very nice, however, the roof isn't completely sealed so you can just hear everything. Not a big deal though and lots of natural light. Overall, we enjoyed our stay.

    I loved my stay here, was super comfortable and in a very good location. The wifi is really strong which is helpful. The staff were the best, so friendly and always happy to help. They helped me book tours, give me information and unfortunately I had toothache there but they helped me find a great dentist and sort everything for me. Would stay here again happily! Thank you!

    I wish they would've had some vegan options included in the complimentary breakfast. Some avocado or fruit would've sufficed. Great staff, and I would recommend Gaia House to anyone visiting Cusco.

    This is a really nice, clean, chilled hostel. We were recommended it by friends and were not disappointed. The staff are friendly, and they make a good free breakfast. The private room with en suite bathroom we had was the biggest we've had in 6 months, and included a living room! We also stayed in a private room with a shared bathroom which was also good. There wasn't a busy social atmosphere which suited us at the time, but the common area is nice and conducive to meeting other travelers.

    Staff were amazingly accommodating, considerate and helpful. Even let us extend our check out when we were both suffering from food poisoning. The location is great with easy walking distance into san Blas, playa de armas and surrounding areas. Good recommendation given by the staff. The room we stayed in was great, like a mini apartment however the cleanliness was a little lacking, but overall it was a good stay!
