This hostel is a cute abode hidden away in one of Cusco's many little squares and is very close to the main square of Cusco, restaurants, souvenirs and everything you need. Try the fallen angel restaurant on the opposite corner of the square, very interesting place with lovely food but a bit pricey. The rooms in this place are nice... More

positioned only a short walk from the main plaza (though at altitude even a short walk can feel tiring!) the hotel is well positioned. However, that's about as good as it gets. The rooms are very basic, and small; the showers erratic - seems to be luck whether you get a warm shower or not and how long you need... More

The views from rooms on the top floor over the city (like mine was) are brilliant but the rooms on the ground floor have next to no natural light. Our bathroom generally had hot water and the room was clean and tidy. However the beds creak a lot!! Which is very irritating. Breakfast was to an acceptable standard with bread,... More

Don't stay here if you have a choice. We stayed as part of a group so already booked for us. So noisy. It is terrible. Bad breakfast also. Stale bread and bad coffee. The only good thing was the location as it was easy walking distance to everything. The beds are creaky and you can hear everything going on in... More

A rather basic hotel, close to the central plaza. The rooms are adequate but certainly a long way from luxurious. Our room had a good view of the cathedral. The breakfast is very basic but OK for the price. The shower is electric with enough water for 1 person. Then there is a 20 minute wait. The wifi usually worked,... More

This plaza (hostel) is located in a prime destination and surrounded by fancy restaurants and hotels. They serve breakfast but its a very sad selection and you have to ask someone to cook you eggs. The courtyard is in the middle of the rooms so anyone hanging there and talking, you will be able to hear it from your room... More

We have had four nights here in four different rooms over the course of ten days. The courtyard rooms are very noisy. Every bed squeaks incessantly. Even just the slightest movement causes a ruckus. The hot water was non existent in two of the rooms. Hubby was wandering around the hotel in his towel in an attempt to get the... More
