Hostal San Blas Inn
Ranked #164 of 517 Speciality Lodging in Cusco
Reviewed 3 February 2016 via mobile

We randomly found this place while wandering cusco and we're so glad we did! Room 208 was the cheapest one (no private bath, 70 soles) but the bed was enormous! We had both a king and a full sized bed with a small heater and a great view of the city. Breakfast was a wonderful buffet and its in a great location. We stayed here twice because we enjoyed it so much. The staff can be a little aloof and indifferent at times, but that's not the most important thing to us so it didn't matter. Definitely recommend!

Stayed: January 2016

This Hostel is just a couple blocks from the main square, Plaza de Armas, and is well-positioned for anything you want to do in Cusco. Highly recommend. Rooms were clean, and staff was flexible with an early wake-up to begin a trek.

Hidden away down one of the alleys in the San Blass district you will find the San Blass inn.

The staff are extremley friendly and the rooms are some of the nicest we've stayed in during our trip around latin america. Good comfortable beds, a fast hot shower and a little plasma TV with cable etc.

A basic breakfast is also included in the price which makes it even better value for money. The staff bent over backwards to make our stay lovely, they even knocked on our door to see if we wanted a hot cup of tea brought to our room.

It is located 1 minute from the San Blass plaza and around 5-10 minutes from the main plaza in cusco. The elevated area of Tandapta means that you can get a great view over cusco from outside the hostel.

The only downside was breakfast was a bit basic and that the hot water wasnt hot 24/7 (basically you had to wait for hot water sometimes!)

I have visited Cusco 4 times in the last 2 years, having stayed in a wide range of hostels and hotels and this is by FAR the best I have encountered.

The accomodation itself is pretty modern by Cusco standards. Rooms are very spacious, clean, have comfy beds and small flat-screen TV's with cable. The bathrooms are spotlessly clean and wouldnt be out of place in a 3 or 4 star hotel in the UK or US. Power showers with reliable hot-water which is unusual for Cusco as well!!

The location is excellent as well. It is right at the top of the San Blas Plaza. Its a bit of a hke up the steep San Blas hill but well worth it for the views. Within 2 minutes walk of the hotel, there are many bars, restaurants and shops as well as the San Blas plaza which often has markets or live music taken place. Its about a 10-15 minute walk downhill to the main square (Plaza de Armas)

The hotel is very well run and the staff can't do enough to make sure you are happy.

All in all a great choice if you are staying in Cusco. Central enough, value for money and charming, quaint location..... bit different from the main tourist areas.

Room Tip: Stayed in Room 203. Very spacious and plenty daylight coming in through the skylight in the hallway.
