We stayed at Casa Mama during a Thanksgiving trip to Cusco and Machu Picchu. Easy place to book. Great, quiet location close to the main square. They booked a trip to the Sacred Valley for us on our way to MP. Nice rooms, good breakfast and excellent service. Would definitely stay here again! Left a pair of prescription sunglasses in...

The commodities are basic. The place is very clean, don't get fooled by the alley street. Price is fair, I paid USD 35$ / night. Where this place shines is the staff. Warm welcome, cordial service, listening and very good English speaker. Enjoyed my stay, felt safe.

We are delighted that our service, cleanliness and warm hospitality have been highlights during your visit. As you rightly says, the road can be narrow, as befits the historic old city center, but inside the hotel is very cozy and above all very clean. We hope to serve you again when you visit our city again. Thank you so much...

This place is relatively cheap. However still overpriced for what you get. We didn't find the staff to be helpful, the rooms were very basic, noisy and there was only luke warm water in the showers. Breakfast was OK though.

You are paying $50/night or less and it includes breakfast: it isn't the Ritz. That being said, I loved staying here. The staff is helpful, the breakfast is good, the room is clean, and the hotel is in a great location with regards to the rest of Cusco. Don't be alarmed by the ally you have to walk down to...

It is somewhat annoying when travellers try to compare a hostel with a 5 star hotel. We went to Peru for an adventure and this hostel/hotel? was part of it. We stayed for 4 nights before our MP trek and 4 nights after. Everything said in reviews is probably true. The hot water is sporadic as is the Wi-Fi service....

This is a great wee hostel with very friendly staff. We stayed here for 5 nights and woke to freshly prepared breakfast each day with fresh juice eggs and tea.

We ended up staying here 8 nights as it was just right for us. Close to town, good breakfast, we asked for a heater and had one all week plus a hairdryer! We always had hot showers and used them at different times of the day. They are an eco hostel so they do turn off the water after 10...
