Staff are awesome people and always willing to help guests. I gotta thank the receptionist Alfredo for his patience and helping me with finding the help i needed when I visited Cuzco in May.. Hostel is clean and quiet at night.

Being a hosteling international property, it was my obvious choice on my visit to Cusco. Nice colonial property , neat & clean infrastructure . Owing to thin walls, privacy may suffer - but it didn't matter to me. Very supportive staff, made taxi arrangements. Walking distance to everything you may want to visit in Cusco .

We stayed at Hostal Mallqui for 3 nights before we hiked the Inca Trail. They have coca tea in the reception area, 24 hour reception, and free luggage holding. Room was clean and comfortable, but very cold! You have to rent a heater if you want one ($1 USD a night). Water pressure in showers was decent but not great... More

Reasonably priced hotel for what you get, which is: A clean, big room (we had the one with private bathroom) best beds during our travel in Peru! Breakfast above average, although served in a cold room. Kind receptionists who speak English very well. Could think of one downside:WiFi only in Lobby and reception and only good on certain places.

Went with my girlfriend, and it was very nice and comfortable. Rooms were quite big, the prices are OK. Breakfast are awesome, they serve you like a king. They receive you with Mate de Coca to avoid soroche.

Clean rooms and comfortable beds. Nice inside garden. The breakfast was just average, served in a cold room. The hostal is close to Plaza de Armas, just a few blocks, however the neighborhood is kind of isolated without many restaurants or stores.

My travelling companions and I stayed here after our 4-day Salkantay trek for on night before travelling on to Lima. I'll caveat this by saying that we were really unlucky and faced a series of unfortunate events that mean we would recommend not going anywhere near this hostel given the other good options available in Cusco. However, I can see... More

I wish I could give this hostel 5 stars because 90% or our experience was excellent. We stayed a total of 4 nights, leaving and returning after a short stay in the sacred valley and then the 4-day inca trail trek. The ladies on staff were extremely pleasant and remembered us. They went out of their way to help us... More

After living in Peru for five months and staying in many hostels/hospedajes, this one has been BY FAR the best. The three of us shared a private room at the beginning and end of our Incan Trail Trek and loved it. The hostel itself is very charming, the room was clean and well-supplied, the bathroom (unlike ALL the other places... More

So, the hostal is very clean and shiny. Every day they are cleaning everywhere. Even the plants are shinning. We stayed there on our way to Macchu Picchu and when we returned. Breakfast was nice and plenty, fresh orange juice, eggs, fruit salad. The lady who served it was very attentive and seemed to remember everything I like. Milagros, the... More
