I booked at the Hospedaje Turistico Recoleta for a semi-private room for $17. It was about a mile walk to the central tourist area (Plaza de Armas) but was recommended on Hostelworld.com. Moved to Hostel Mallqui because it was only 5 blocks from the Plaza de Armas and had a private room with bath, cable TV with HBO for the...

Stayed here for a week in December and again in February. Some of the reception staff were friendly and helpful, rooms clean, breakfast sufficient. It was cold! and you had to pay $30 for a heater! overpriced. It advertises free internet but it is useless. The street it is in is smelly and dirty but it is only 3 blocks...

Spent a couple of nights here on my way to Machu Picchu. The staff are very, very helpful and polite. The place is clean and in a great location, just a few blocks away from the main square (Plaza de Armas). They offer free wifi (though it didn't quite work in my room) and breakfast is included (bread, butter, jam,...

We stayed at this mediocre hostel for two nights for $35, as we booked this online. After a trip to Machu Picchu we came back and were shown a different room, and was told it was 60 soles. We agreed. The next day when we came to pay, the manager said it was $35 too. We insisted that we were...

We recently stayed here for 4 nights over New Years Eve. Let's face it this place is cheap, really cheap so set your expectations....you are not staying in a 4 star hotel. The rooms are nice, we stayed in a double room that had an ensuite bath. The room and bathroom were clean and cleaned daily (however they don't give...

This place is a short walk up a rustic, cobbled street from the main square, with various other points of interest and restaurants close by. The courtyard is quaint, and the wifi decent (didn't work in the room though). The room itself was nice, bed comfy, and en suite bathroom clean with warm water, although the door didn't shut properly...

Whilst this is not in the more expensive San Blas area popular with tourists, it is only a short walk to the Plaza Des Armas and a couple of other very nice plazas. The hostel is in a very nice old house and has quiet, spacious, comfortable common areas (Wifi only in these areas). I booked a single room with...

I stayed 4 nights in total and enjoyed the quiet. No bar, so no noise from that. Just a quiet place to stay with good breakfast. There's a fire in the TV room downstairs which we enjoyed on the evenings. Dorm beds were very comfortable and they have en suite bathrooms. My dorm even had a sofa and TV in...

My wife and I stopped at the hostel Mallqui in Cusco for 5 nights in late November-early December. In general we are pleased by the conditions of the accommodation and would consider staying in it another time. Our very negative comment is related to the charges of the hostel front desk for tours, and also taxi. The cost of a...

The place was really cozy, an old Peruvian house adapted as Hostel. The room I got wasn't really big for a double room (I got a double with private bathroom), we barely had space to walk. Also the bathroom was clean but small, and some of the towels had holes. On the other hand the Breakfast was great! it included...
