Property Description

Translated from Quechua, Puriwasi “The house of the traveler”, is located just 3 blocks to Plaza de Armas , the safest in the city.
Puriwasi is not just a hostel, it is a place designed especially for those travelers who like to know the city through its people, its culture and its gastronomy; they look for as much as a good night rest and also a night full of fun in an atmosphere of harmony and respect among all travelers.
Under the concept of #YOUALWAYSCOMEFIRST, Puriwasi evolves every day to always offer you a quality service at convenient prices.
Welcome to PURIWASI CUSCO!!!

WIFI throughout the hostel
CONTINENTAL BREAKFAST from 7am – 10:00am
SECURITY LOCKERS inside bedrooms
STORAGE ROOM if you rebook with us



Our name translates as ‘The Traveller's House’ and at Puriwasi we give a friendly welcome to people from all over the world! Like our brightly painted walls, our vibe is energetic and fun. You can get to know other backpackers on our outside terrace as you listen to live beats and sip a Peruvian pisco from the bar. Or sit back in the lounge area between casual games of pool. There's also a TV and plenty of DVDs if you need some down time. Planning a trip to the mountains? Even more reason to check out our free continental breakfast!


You’ll be staying in Peru’s World Heritage Site of Cusco with Machu Picchu, the Sacred Valley and the Inca Trail practically on your doorstep. But ancient history isn’t the only thing people visit us for – Cusco town (roughly a 20-minute walk from the hostel) is great for a night out in the colourful local clubs and bars. It's a multicultural mix – look out for the Irish pub or try traditional Peruvian places. If you’re an early riser, drop by San Pedro Market for the freshest local produce. Not sure how to find us? We can arrange a pick-up from the airport (just contact us beforehand), or you can grab a taxi – either way the journey is around 25 minutes.

Rooms and Dorms

Rest up after a long day of exploring in our comfortable shared dorms. They're roomy, bright and clean with free bed linen and towels available to hire. You don't have to worry about carrying your stuff up the mountain with you (phew!), as we've got big lockers for stashing your backpack.

Extras and activities

Hook up to the free Wi-Fi to update your blog with pictures of our wall murals and post a selfie of you relaxing in one of our hammocks. There’s a communal space for cooking if you want to save a bit of cash. Staying for a while? We have a laundry service so you can freshen up well-worn outfits. Multilingual staff are on hand with tips and inspiration at our 24-hour reception, and there's round-the-clock security too.

    Puriwasi hostel is in a perfect location and with perfect people. Honestly this hostel has best staffs I’ve seen so far with special mention of Jose who was super helpful to me with any queries I got. The kitchen/bar is awesome and it has got cool people like Peter and Jhordan who are very friendly and interactive too. I strongly recommend staying in this hostel in Cusco.

    I had a great experience at Puriwasi. Pod beds were great, with your own charger and light. Showers were hot. Breakfast was simple but did the job. They actually locked the place where you stored your bags when you left for your hike, which was a nice touch of security. Jose was fantastic on reception, such a friendly face and always happy to help you with things to do around the city!

    A hostel with all the basics. It’s definitely worth the money, but there is mediocre wifi in many parts and I did not find it very social. The facilities are very clean, but they do not let you keep your bag on the floor near your bed. This could be quite a pain, especially if coming back to the hostel late at night,
