I paid only 10 USD for a private room with a beautiful view at a historical center just about 500m from the main square!! I stumbled at this place very randomly while looking for a place to stay in Cuzco and i'm not much into dorm rooms cause i like my personal space but I didn't have anything booked so...

Inexpensive hostel. It is centrally located near the Plaza de Armas. The staff is very kind. The breakfast room at the top of the building has an outdoor terrace with a lovely view of Cusco. We were there during the rainy season and because there is no heat in the rooms, we were a bit cold; there were plenty of...

The only thing we enjoyed about this hostel was the terrace view and if we had not paid in advance, we would have stayed somewhere else. They offered to pick us up at the airport and bus station where our group members were arriving, we provided detailed location/time pickup information twice via email, but no one came to either location....

Resbalosa went out of their way to be exceptionally helpful after some confusion with our booking. Nothing was too much trouble and we were so pleased we would not hesitate to stay there again. The hostal itself is clean, comfy and centrally placed for access to the city. Highly recommended.

Cheap and central Peruvian hostal. Very basic accomodation. Small rooms with a bed and not much more. Rooms were clean, stayed in several different rooms at different times. Very cold at night, i recommend bringing warm clothes and a sleepingbag for backup. Speaking spanish is highly recommeded. Not just at this hostal, but in Peru in general. I was told...

We stayed at this hostal for three nights and it was a great hostal. We payed 50 soles for a matrimonial bed in a tiny room with no bathrooms and no TV, which we were totally ok with. The shared bahtroom was just in front of our door. It's a really good price for Cuzco, the hotels are so pricey...

I would rate this hostal as 2. First of all, for a hostel, they charge a little expensive. I've been to other hostels before and they were nicer, cleaner, with proper internet connection, people spoke in English. I can't complain much as its a hostel, meaning a budget place to stay for backpackers. Just that it looks nicer on the...

Much cheaper than other hostels in Cusco, with acceptable facilities and a great view over the city. You have to hike up lots of stairs to get there, so don't go here if you struggle with altitude and lots of hiking up hills. But it's worth the effort if you can manage it.

I only stayed here for one night because I didn't like it very much. It is more a hostel for couples than backpackers and I was the only one staying in their "dorm". The dorm was right next to reception so you could hear people all the time and to go to the bathroom you had to walk past reception...
