I stayed at Ecopackers on and off during my time in Cusco, in between hikes and at the completion of my time in Cusco. The staff are very friendly, accomodating and always happy to help - a special mention to Carmen, Dianesa and Maria who...More
A perfectly clean hostel with the kindest staff ever! The hostel is centrally located and is a short walk away from the best restaurants and historical locations in town. Carmen y Fredy hacen los mejores pisco sours en todo del mundo!

From the moment of checking in with Carmen to booking our trek to Salkantay we were treated with a smile and information.
The hostel is in a great location just a couple of blocks from the Plaza de Armas. The rooms are spotlessly clean and...More
Not only did they manage to lose my bag, they claimed they'd never seen it that it had never been left with them and that I was wrong.
I left my contact details with them so they could get in touch once found as I...More

my advice?...don't go to a kiosk in the airport unless you are JUST arriving in Peru and dont know the difference between registered cabs and not. They are more expensive and if your backpacking...ever dollar counts! Take a street cab. I only payed 6 soles and refused to pay more. If you're getting in a cab, look for photo ID (should be on dashboard or right hand corner of window) and if there's a dispatch system that is the best. ALWAYS negotiate a set price before you even set foot in the cab. The one that I used to take a lot I think was called tourismo or touristico???...something along those lines?! you could send an email to the hostel or google safe taxi companies.
ALSO if you have time, and if you like beautiful incredible things, I highly suggest taking a collectivo (6 soles) to a town about an hour and a half away called Ollantaytambo. I lived there for a month and it is COVERED in beautiful Inka ruins. if you want to go for a ten minute walk, or if you want to do a 5 day trek up mount Veronika it is safe, STUNNING and so tranquil. As a single female traveler I lived in my tent for 3 days and it was one of the best experiences that I had.
All the best on your travels!
