The staff is so friendly and helpful! Almendra, Katy ,and everyone are like angels and want to help you always. It is centrally located right next to all the action near Plaza Des Armas.! It is clean, cheap, and I made many many friends there! Dragonfly is special in Cusco and I will stay there again!

This hostel is nice if you feel like relaxing. It has a cosy bar, and a nice common area. The beds are very comfy too. Definitely good value for money, however I would say it suits an older crowd from around 25+ Kitchen amenities too

This hostel is in a great location and is reasonably priced. The breakfast is pretty good by South American standards (fresh bread and crepes). There's good music, a nice bar and a good vibe. Whilst I had no problems with the staff and only found them helpful, other guests didn't have the same experience. For example, they did very little...

The breakfast was actually really nice and the location unbeatable for this price ! Maybe go there in a group and as a solo traveller you may prefer...

As I stayed for quite a bit of time in Cusco, I saw different hostels and this was definitive the best one! Already the location is perfect: its only a two minute walk to the main square, the "plaza de armas", about 8 minutes to San Blas and bars and night clubs are also really near, if you want to...

We enjoyed our stay at Dragonfly in Cuzco. The staff was very helpful in trying to get us the type of room we wanted. They stored our large backpacks in the storage closet when we went to Aguas Calientes/MP. They had a travel agency on site with long hours (7:30-8:30) that we booked our trip to MP through. Clean towels...

Great vibe, clean, and the staff and volunteers were all very friendly. It's a quieter hostel, with quiet hours starting at 11. The included breakfast is bread with jam, butter, and crepes. Tasty, but no protein or fiber. The kitchen is tiny and ill-equipped, but cheap delicious food is plentiful and nearby. Our issue: they offered us four nights for...
