Amazing hostel, superb staff, went above and beyond to help us out. Not only does Ecopackers have a great ambiance, with helpful staff and an onsite agency for any trips you might be looking to book – they went above and beyond to help us...More
Ecopackers was the perfect place to stay a few days in Cusco. The decor and interior is super cool -- very open, relaxed environment with a terrific restaurant (try the lomo saltado!) and good couple of rooms to lounge in. The staff are also super...More
I was in Cusco for a volunteering placement for 2 weeks and this place was great! Both Carmen and Betty made sure that my stay was super comfortable and they were always ready to help me with whatever I needed!
Once i got here, there were four people who treated me as if i was part of their family.
Ruth and Diego suggested different places to go and gave me their help, not only they gave me instructions of how to move in Cuzco alone...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!
