Nice staff, american breakfast, comfortable bedroom with Private bathroom. We slept very well in Quipu hostal. On the other hand location was not so good (20 minutes walking from Plaza de Armas) but you can always take a taxi (taxis are very cheap in Peru).

I have mixed feelings about this place. Let's start with the good: courtyard was nice to sit in and chill a little bit after we arrived, Eddie, the guy that helped us throughout most of our stay was very nice and helpful, and I felt like he was genuine. Did not speak English but my husband speaks some Spanish and...

We liked this hostal. The entire staff is friendly and helpful and the rooms are situated around a nice court yard. There is some construction work going on but when that is finishes it will even be better. The rooms on the street side are the newest (but also a bit cold). You will get good value for the price.

We were looking for an inexpensive place to stay and found the perfect place! Our stay was very pleasant. The hostel was really clean and close to everything. The service was friendly and very helpful, it was excellent! And breakfast was included! For sure we will stay there again on our next trip to Cuzco.

We really enjoyed our stay at Quipu! It is a quiet hostal, and was perfect after party hostels and 10 bed doorms. Most of the rooms had ensuite bathrooms, and the beds were really comfy especially after doing the inka trek! The staff does not speak much english, and we didnt speak spanish, but still the people running the hostel...
