This was a nice clean basic hostel but with individual rooms with private bathrooms, not dorm rooms and common bathrooms. It included breakfast in the AM. We were only there for 1 night but it was great to get a nice shower and sleep in a bed after Inca Trail trek. It was very convenient to the train station.

We stayed at this place as part of a deal with the place we stayed at in Cusco. The place was pretty clean, but the room smelled kind of damp. Breakfast consisted of traditional Peruvian bread, butter, jelly, instant coffee, teas, orange juice. I wouldn't count on it sustaining you more than an hour or two. The Wi-Fi only worked... More

Yesterday, after paying the balance due on my reservation per request, I... More

Aguas Calientes is a weird little "town" that's split into an almost entirely tourist-oriented set of hotels and restaurants and an almost entirely residential area. Margarita's House lies closer to the residential area and is very close to the train station. There's nothing fancy here. Just a basic room. However, the room was clean, inexpensive, and the owners of the... More

We stayed at Margarita's house the night before our Machu Picchu visit. It's a few minutes walk from the Aguas Calientes train station (turn right at the exit, walk past all the souvenir stores and turn right at the street; Calle Chaska T'ika's a few streets down) and the bus stop to Machu Picchu. "Restaurant Row" is about 5 minutes... More
