    If you are searching for a good hostel with a excellent location this is the place! A very nice hostel with breakfast included, hot showers 24/7!! So important in Cusco. The dorms are very good and with a lot of space, there are lockers inside the room and extra blankets if you need. There are not many common areas and not much of a vibe if you are not apart of a group.

    Very Good

    Pros: Great value for money and location. Security good with locked door, 24hr staffed reception, and locked luggage storage. Breakfast basic but okay. Rooms and showers clean. Slept well. Shared kitchen small but clean. Cons: Staff kitchen Is filthy. Do not order food here. Upstairs toilets often lack soap and toilet roll. Laundry lost socks. One womens shower door off hinges. Dated decor and fittings. Minimal vibe. Bar is empty, staff never had change. Overall good but flawed budget choice

    The staff is nice and the location is good but- we came back from 4 days hiking and there were no water at all. After one hour and half, in the middle of night the water back but without hot water. Furthermore, the bedsheets was pretty dirty and also the shower and bathroom. At least we got full refund for the cancellation which is kind.

    Although the location is excellent and the price is cheap the hostel is not clean, with mouldy bathrooms and shower doors which are broken. There is rarely soap or toilet roll available in all bathrooms. I had a private room and found that the staff who had cleaned my room whilst I was out had left the door unlocked and when we reported this they were not interested. I also booked an en-suite and on arrival was told this was not available, which was really disappointing.
