On a lovely street in Cusco, with blue shutters and an airy interior, we thought we might be onto a winner. We had booked a double but were given a twin. As we had just arrived from a flight we went along with it, and it had a nice window onto the street. Unfortunately, the management was the downfall to...

We arrived at 4:00AM, the night receptionist welcomed us very well with the smile and he was helpful. The horror starts at the sunrise, when the rest of the staff was present!

For 60 soles the night ($20 US), we got a lovely room on the top floor with a private bathroom, internet, breakfast, and hot water. It was super quiet (just a few other guests), but the place is adorable and the seating area on the top floor has great night and day views of the city and is a perfect...

I'll get straight to the point. Pros - Location, Staff/Owner are very nice people. They go out of their way to make sure your stay is a positive one. You can't beat the price. A great value for what you get. Don't expect a 5 star hotel. Hot showers and a safe San Blas neighborhood. Wifi works for the most...

This little Hostel in Cusco is a little gem of a place for the budget traveler. Rooms are cheap, clean, well maintained and there is usually an included breakfast in the price of the room. The owner is dedicated to your comfort and well being and will go the extra mile to make sure your stay is comfortable and secure....
