We stayed here last September. The only good thing I can say about it is the view we had from our room. The room was filthy, covered with dead mosquitoes on the walls. The staff was not interested or absent. When we were realy to leave, we had to look for someone (anyone) who could receive our payment! Definitely not...

Decent place. Clean. Friendly staff. They even give free breakfast each morning. Tea is available 24 hours per day. Computer is available for guest use. Rooms with balcony, on the river. Pretty close to everything you need. Convenient to train station My only complaint is that it sets at the top of a hill and check out time is at...

It's spacious and ok for a hostel. Our room had a balcony with a view of the river but it was actually pretty noisy. Bathroom had hot water and wifi worked well. The lodge was located 10 min walk to the bus station to go up to Machu Picchu and lots of restaurants nearly by. It was nice that breakfast...

Only stayed one night before our day at Machu Picchu but easily would have stayed another night afterward, if our time would have allowed. Location on the river and close proximity to the hot springs was perfect! Staff was very sweet and someone even met us at the train station to guide us to the hostal personally. Great recommendation by...

I booked El Mistico via email for 2 nights after finding no rooms available through expedia etc. Staff replied quickly (In English) and were helpful. The rate was the same as a hostal we stayed in in Cusco, but El Mistico was far superior. Our room was on the top level with a decent balcony. The bed was very comfortable,...

An amazing and trusted Peruvian hostel owner in Cusco called the owner of this hostel for us and arranged our stay before we even left Cusco for Machu Pichu. After a long day hike on Machu Pichu we walked by the front of this hostel and the owner came outside and called my name! I knew we found good people....

This hostel was an excellent find in a town full of rather shoddy places (reading other reviews). The rooms by the river with individual balconies are great. You can't here any trains, bars or otherwise, just the river which is a welcome relief from so many other Peruvian hostels. The room itself is very clean with private bathroom and very...

The staff weren't overly friendly but our room was nice with a view over the river. was a nice change from backpacking. The price was good for the town which can be expensive. Breakfast at 4am before heading to macchu picchu was pretty good too. Can be a little difficult to find so make sure you know where you're headed.

Nice clean room with comfortable beds. Super quiet location. Our room had a balcony over the river. Brand new bathroom with super hot water. One of the best hostels we have stayed at in South America.

We loved our stay at Hotel Mistico! Admittedly the fact that they speak very little English can be difficult we had no problems here and felt welcome. Breakfast is very simple but plentiful. It is a bit of a hike uphill from the station but worth it. There are plenty of places to eat close by and the hot pools...
