No staff to help, no hot water, no towels, no toilet paper, room smells of mildew, communal kitchen piled up with dirty dishes. There was literally nobody around to help us after we had received our room keys. Our room shared a wall with the restaurant that they use the photos from to make it seem like there is actually...

I went here once with a group of my friends. The food took forever roughly 3 hours. Food was also not given at the same time so some people got their food fast others did not. It was also extremely cold and they only had a small heater that people circled around. For the price it was not worth it.

Being locked out from 1:30 - 3:30 am without receiving an apology and not having running water upon arrival are my TOP reasons for suggesting you avoid this place in spite of the great restaurant and view. Also, a place of this quality should have stocked the (private) restrooms with toilet paper by the evening, right? The manager Edwin was...

Ok, first, the restaurant/bar has the most spectacular view of Cusco; its stunning!! But apart from that, and lovely staff, I wouldn't stay at this hotel again. In fact, eat and drink here, but don't stay here. Our bedroom was behind the bar which meant we heard the bass thumping and people chatting late into the night. On top of...

After having spent 3 weeks in this hostel I am sad to leave. The hostel is a fabulous place to stay. It is an ideal base for exploring Cusco, situated in the lovely area of San Blas.

Cheap accommodation, friendly staff and excellent views from the bar. The noise however drove us away after one night. Most of the noise was close to our room, there was break with only intermittent noise between about 11:30 pm and 5am so we did get some sleep. Level of noise may be dependent on where your room is, the morning...

I went to this hotel because it is a great deal in cuzco . For about $20 you get a room with free Breakfast and the best view of cuzco. They have a great bar with excellent service and good happy hour deals.

View Point hostel has been one of our favorite places to stay during our South American trip. The view from the bar/restaurant overlooks all of Cusco.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Cusco Viewpoint Hostel is an old, large mansion built during the Inca period. It has been remodeled to accommodate and serve guests in the most effective way possible. It is located in one of the oldest districts of Cusco, San Blas, where live and work a lot of artisans. Our hostel offers spacious and comfortable rooms (single, double or triple) with or without a private bathroom. The hostel's name of "Viewpoint" is aptly used, for the magical panoramic view of the wonderful city of Cusco. ... more   less
