    I ended up extending my stay at PuriWasi because it’s a fantastic hostel to stay at. Jose and the staff do a great job of accommodating guests and were always willing to help. Security is also great, every guest has a big locker (my whole trekking pack fit in it) to lock stuff up in and they also offer storage for when you leave and come back after a trek or something. Jose and the staff keep the place clean, they’re nice people, and they’re fun to talk to. Don’t hesitate to book a stay here.

    Had a great stay! Staff was super accommodating and even helped me book my Machu Picchu tour; they arranged everything. From the round trip train ride to the bus up and down the mountain in Aguas Calientes to the hostel I stayed at there. They are also conveniently located. Would highly recommend.

    It's a nice hostel. Beds are comfy, lots of blankets, and there are lockers in the room (bring your own lock). Weird thing - the common area doesn't have a roof, so if it's raining then it's unusable. Also you might get wet going to the men's bathroom. The staff is friendly and helpful.

    Puriwasi hostel is sparkling clean and has really comfy beds. The staff are very helpful (Jose) who go above and beyond for their guests. You can walk into the town centre in a few mins and the reception is 24hrs which is great for early morning tours etc. Both times I stayed here I was next to the tea room which people go to at night because common rooms are closed and early morning before tours. This was really noisy and woke our room up so perhaps there could be a curfew on this. Thank you!!

    Where to start... The bed set up in the large dorms is awesome. Kinda like a box where you slide in from the foot. Great for day napping. This is where you want to be if you're taking day trips in and around Cousco. Jose is a wonderful host and Peter and Jhordan are the coolest and miix a mean drink. There isn't a kitchen but you gonna wanna be eating that dank ass food anyway. Definitely recommend if you want a good time and good conversation without necessarily being a rager. Thumbs up!

    Bedbugs!! They had recently had someone who had bedbugs there and clearly hadn't cleaned it properly! Because the whole female dorm is infested. The staff are lovely, really friendly people, but the management are not. I wasn't offered any compensation for the bedbug problem. Thankfully I checked out today.

    Stayed here 3x nights. First and Second night I didn't sleep because of how loud the 12 person dorm. The walls are paperthin in the showers so enjoy listening to people having sex at 3am at night or playing music at 4am while showering. The bedspaces aren't walled properly. Highly recommended not staying in anything above a 6 person as they are poorly designed bedspaces and you won't sleep. When asked to change dorms staff approach was an inconvenience to them. Overall below average hostel.
