We negotiated a price for our group of six people who waited for us in the open air at Plaza de Armas. When we arrived with all the group and luggage the price was different.No word and unfriendly staff. Always ready to charge, but slow to clean the room (we asked to clean our bathroom for four days). Just stay...

Situated about 10 minutes from the main Plaza in Cusco in one of its private rooms. Basic breakfast included. Wonderful helpful and friendly staff, such as Joel! I appear to be jinxed when it comes to showers, one time I just couldn't shower as appeared to have no hot water, but no one else seemed to have an issue :)...

Wifi is good at the lobby but gives a weak signal once you're in the room. Showers were not always hot and sometimes the hostel run out of water. A nice, cheap option when in...

My first few nights here were great. I had a private room for cheap and it was peaceful. But the receptionist messed up my reservation once i returned from aguas calientes and only booked my room for 2 nights, not 3, so they kicked me out of the private room and stuck me in a shared dorm room right next...

When I arrived into Cusco I was so exhausted I just went to the first Hostel I could find that had private rooms. I ended up staying at Bright Hostel for a few weeks. It's the cheapest private room I could find in Cusco with such a good location and comfortable room. I stayed in a private room with a...

Do not trust presentation pictures on the different websites : rooms are bad, beds also - staff ok but not great. When we tell that to the staff They do not understand and maintain their view. Good point / not far from the main square of the city but 50 soles for that is very expensive (double bedroom )
