This hostel is just too cute. Great location, walking distance 5 minutes to anywhere you need to go in Cusco. Clean and comfortable. Breakfast served daily with an incredible view. The best part is the staff, they treat you like family and are very accommodating and friendly!!! Highly recommend and this is where I will stay again for future trips...

Nice location (around 8 mins walk to main square) , very basic breakfast. Wifi connection was not quite stable. The hotel, rooms and furniture are kinda old but very clean, quiet and warm. I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights, the staffs were very helpful, the service was a plus.

The hostel was very welcoming, we arrived late and they kindly recommended how we prevent altitude sickness from setting in which we appreciated. Located only a short walking distance from the main plaza, close to everything you need. The room was lovely, ample size with great hot shower. Very clean with new towels daily. They look after your luggage in...

Seven of us stayed here for two nights. Great value and location. The staff were exceptionally responsive and helpful particularly due to our very late arrival. If you can ask for a room on the main floor. That way you can enjoy original inca walls as part of your decor

Room and Breakfast were satisfactory (we liked the eating area). Staff was not that friendly and I really wouldn't say you get the value for your money. The worst was the 8:30 am check out. To get showered, packed and ready + breakfast you basically have to get up at 6:30-7:00. Who wants to do that on vacation!?!
