    I stayed in Gaia house in between my trek to Machu Picchu, and I felt so welcome there! Everyone in the staff remembers your name and most of them speak decent english. I spoke a lot especially to Saul and Yvonne who both were very helpful giving me suggestions on where to go in Cusco, as I was travelling alone. The rooms are also very clean (they tidy rooms daily)and quiet (not really a party hostel) which was perfect since I got back from my trek quite tired. Lovely place! /Evelyn

    I loved our stay here! The beds were super comfy, lockers are huge, and the central courtyard is beautiful. The staff are friendly and speak English, and the breakfast is good (cereal, jam, bread, fruit, coffee, juice, for free, eggs from 4-6 soles). There was a kitchen to use, so we bought food in the market and prepare it there. It's in walking distance to anywhere you'd want to go, but away from the crowds. Oh, it is hard to find from the street - it's only marked by a small hard-to-read sign

    Super chill hostel. Rooms and bathrooms were spotless and the staff were lovely, they remembered all our names and helped us out booking our Machu Picchu trip. Wifi worked best out in the courtyard. Short walk to the main square. No complaints at all, a very relaxed stay.

    Very relaxing and quaint hostel. The beds are very comfortable, the showers are awesome and hot, and the WiFi is okay (works best in courtyard). Free breakfast was fine and is a quick walk to restaurants and the main square.

    My cousin and I loved our stay at Gaia house. The location was perfect. It is very close to the plaza de armas and it is right by a supermarket where you can buy water and other things. The breakfast was good. The receptionists were fantastic! They were always so kind and helpful and greeted us every time we returned to the hostel. The room was nice and we had hot water. The WiFi works well in the middle area, but not in the rooms. The WiFi was strongest in the morning and afternoon.

    Very nice hostel, the rooms overlook a little courtyard with lots of seating, very cute. I stayed here one night in March, and it was very quiet and relaxed, which is what I was looking for. The breakfast was good, you can add eggs for a few soles, and the staff were very friendly. My only complaint is that there were no outlets near the beds in my room.

    I had a great experience at Gaia House Hostel; very clean and very nice staff. About 6 blocks from Plaza de Armas (10 min walk). Quiet and calm hostel. When we arrived, we were offered coca tea, we got suggestions for eating (El encuentro restaurant) and they were always very helpful calling us taxis, holding our bags after check out, asking how we were doing, what we did; I thought it was a very. I’ve gesture. I totally recommend this hostel.

    ABSOLUTELY freezing. Stayed in a 8 bed dorm and there was no heating whatsoever. Asked the staff if they could put a heater in the room and they said I would have to pay fir it to be used by EVERYONE in the 8 bed dorm! AND there is only ONE charging outlet in the 8 bed dorm! No character or atmosphere. Staff NOT friendly nor helpful as per comments in previous reviews. No early check in too. Free breakfast is basic. Left after one night to go somewhere else. Save your money and go somewhere else
