The hotel is headed near the La Bas plaza. We experienced this neighbourghood as one of the nicest in Cusco, as there are many nice handicrafts shops and litte lunch places around and it is not yet so touristic. The room was a little bit dark but was very clean and beds were good. It was a nice, tiny and...

My boyfriend and I stayed here a total of 3 nights. The staff were super friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and the beds were comfy. They location is great. They let us leave our bags when we left for 24 hours to Machu Picchu. We also loved the breakfast offering coffee, tea, fresh fruit and fruit juice, yoghurt,...

We were originally planning on staying here for 3 nights but ended up here for 7. Partly because of Cusco and partly because this hostal was great. Staff were very friendly and amazing. Breakfast was great. And the rooms were nice, quiet and clean. Would stay here again!

It's six am as I write this. Last night the people in the upstairs room tromped around like angry elephants for several hours late at night despite my asking them to please stop. Early this morning it's the same thing- it has everything to do with the design of the place. There is no way you can get a good...

I stayed here just one night. The staff are very friendly and the rooms are quite clean. The bed is comfy and warm enough. But it was very noisy at night (possibly because my room was on the ground floor) and the shower ran out of hot water quite quickly. I doubt i would stay here again

First of all, the staff here was welcoming and very helpful, giving me tips on exploring Cusco and where to eat. When I left for my trek to Machu Picchu, they held my luggage and even packed me a breakfast to take, since we left really early. I love the neighborhood of San Blas, up on a hill overlooking Cusco,...

Clean room. Strong wifi at room. Wonderful breakfast. We could take hot shower at night. Night view from window was amazing. Our beds had heavy blanket, so we slept well. Staffs were really kind. Even though we need to go up the stairs to reach hostal, it was really more worthy than price. This hostal located close from touristic place,...

This was the first of the many hostels we stayed at during our trip through South America. The staff was very cordial and helpful, the beds were clean and comfortable. The lobby has high skylights that creates a beautiful setting for breakfast or coca tea.

This is a good option in the San Blas area of Cusco (less than 10 mins from the main sq). The area itself us lovely with lots of places to eat close by. The room we had was fine with a comfy bed and a good shower. The staff were friendly and helpful. One slight letdown was the breakfast. When...
