The atmosphere and staff are exceptional. A great place to stay near the centre.
Thank you Jhon in the dining area for the great service sharing your personal experiences of living in Cusco! Will definitely return.
I stayed in a 15 bed-dorm for almost a week in total. It has everything a backpacker want. Little Resto /Bar with a reasonable priced food and drinks, there is a small kitchen if you still want to cook. Bathrooms are clean and internet is...More

my advice?...don't go to a kiosk in the airport unless you are JUST arriving in Peru and dont know the difference between registered cabs and not. They are more expensive and if your backpacking...ever dollar counts! Take a street cab. I only payed 6 soles and refused to pay more. If you're getting in a cab, look for photo ID (should be on dashboard or right hand corner of window) and if there's a dispatch system that is the best. ALWAYS negotiate a set price before you even set foot in the cab. The one that I used to take a lot I think was called tourismo or touristico???...something along those lines?! you could send an email to the hostel or google safe taxi companies.
ALSO if you have time, and if you like beautiful incredible things, I highly suggest taking a collectivo (6 soles) to a town about an hour and a half away called Ollantaytambo. I lived there for a month and it is COVERED in beautiful Inka ruins. if you want to go for a ten minute walk, or if you want to do a 5 day trek up mount Veronika it is safe, STUNNING and so tranquil. As a single female traveler I lived in my tent for 3 days and it was one of the best experiences that I had.
All the best on your travels!
