This hostel has recently come under new ownership by a very competent young man named Martin. I just spent two nights here and it was a life saver. I had an airB&B reservation that ended up being a disaster. The owner (Martin) of Sunset Hostel helped us in earnest to find our airB&B when we were lost and the renter... More

poor customer service. Starting with they never knew we were booked. Took 10min to open the gate. We were in a room with no wifi, no ventilation, and it stunk. Only 1 shower in the place had hot water. Booked a day tour through them, told us was a hotel pick up, at time of pick up told us pick... More

I've stayed in hostels all over the world and even all over Cusco, but this one is the best. With in credible views, it's not hard to get out of bed in the morning, but if sleeping in is your preference, the calm atmosphere of the hostel will fully allow that as well. The location is just perfect - close... More

Really enjoyed my stay here. Manu (who runs the hostel) is great and has a cool place going. Good atmosphere without being a heavy party place, and they have an attached restaurant with a bar as well. The hilltop location gives great views on the terrace, too. Definitely recommend!

I stayed a couple of days in the Sunset House and came later back to volunteer there for some time. First of all I can say that the location of the hostel is awesome especially for people who want to relax or do trekking as it is not a party hostel. It lies a little up in the beautiful artist...

Collectively, my girlfriend and I have stayed in many hostels over the years. Never have the staff been so friendly, so helpful, so caring and so genuinely interested in our well being as they are at Sunset House. We stayed here over 2 weeks and felt at home. The staff's good nature was shown when the owner Manu and Noemi,... More
