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.

    Loved staying at Puri Wasi. Great location and amazing staff. I ended up with some altitude sickness and Claudia treated me like family. Not sure what I would've done without her help. Thanks again Puri Wasi and especially Claudia. Jesus is great as well!

    It's a pity I stayed for one night only! Met a really fun group of people (mostly backpacking only for months in SA) and very welcoming staff! The have great spots to chat and hangout, a game room and an awesome bar! Definitely recommendable!

    Puriwasi Hostel Cusco, One of the best Hostels I've stayed at! Front desk Claudia was so helpful, I went on the 5 days Salkantay Trek to Machu Picchu and had a whole bunch of dirty clothes on my return, she pointed me in the right direction for laundry service with the best value per kilo. Jhourdon is an excellent Bartender and DJ, he creates the atmosphere! Rosemary knows how to get everyone involved and feel welcomed. All the staff was super friendly and they took the time to get to know me.

    Just spent one night here. Bed and pillow were not comfortable, but otherwise a good place to stay. I probably would have given it a better review had I not been to way better hostels in the area.
